- Microsoft's top developers prefer old-school coding methods - 'While visual programming can be easier to learn and can help make developers more productive, it's also "easier to delude yourself,"'
- New Sun VirtualBox Release Enables First Cross-Platform "Teleport" of Running Virtual Machine - "Teleportation helps virtual machines achieve high availability. When physical hardware needs to be taken down, the virtual workload can simply be teleported to another physical host."
- Why can't Google be more like Microsoft? - Google increasingly sounds like they are doing visible source, not open-source.
