Christmas Cheer

Average Joe User still the target

Linux World has a report from the Oracle OpenWorld panel. Linus said that he will be focussing on bringing Linux to normal users. Indeed, the competition is not high end Unixes, but Windows. He also mentioned that 2.2 should be out by Christmas. Intel also announced a Linux Community Program. Despite recent speculation, Larry Ellison did not discuss a Linux strategy, but an Oracle vice-president reaffirmed Oracle's commitment to Linux. Moreover, Oracle called upon Sun today to put Java into the Open Source community to accelerate its growth. Note that Netscape's vice president said that the emphasis should not be put on the OS but the apps it runs and the services around it: similar to this idea.
