5 Links for Developers and IT Pros 9/23/11
Posted on Fri, Sep 23, 2011
It's Friday and that means it's time for our weekly feature where we search the Web looking for 5 interesting, funny and poignant links for developers and IT Pros.
If you missed our other post this week,
Metro Doesn't Mean the Immediate Death of .net,
where we look at the role of .net in the new Metro world, please check it out now. It's been one of our most popular posts ever.
If you like what you see here, please consider subscribing and if you have something to say, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know what you think.
And here we go with this week's links:
Google Needs to Clean Up its Android Market's Malware Mess
- HP Input-Output
Google needs to rid its marketplace of Malware before it gets out of control. In fact, McAfee reported that malware targeting Android phones was up 76 percent last quarter. Google has to do better.
Why the Desktop Will Never Die
All this "post-PC" talk has veteran technology journalist Pam Baker's dander up. She explains why the stand-alone PC is going to be around for some time to come.
MySQL Moves Closer to Closed
- Open Source Matters
MySQL announced recently that it was no longer free and moving to an "Open Core" model. Might have something to do with Oracle's purchase of Sun (which had purchased the company that created MySQL). Let's just say that MySQL's founder Monty Widenius was none to pleased with the development.
Is Android Really Free Software?
When Richard Stallman talks, you know it's going to be interesting and in this post, he discusses the differences between open source (as in code) and the free software foundation (which he says is about respecting the freedom of users). And he suggests that Android may be violating the freedom idea. Always worth a read.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could identify the development underperformers this easily?
(humor) - Software Quality Connection
Ah, if the underperformers only sat in the middle of the room blubbering incoherently and smashing a keyboard against their skulls, it would be so much easier for managers to identify them. Alas, it's not that simple I guess.
