Discover Apache Synapse, a high-performance enterprise service bus with simple configuration, extensible architecture, and a minimal footprint. It is a versatile tool that you can use for a variety of tasks. This article examines how you can use Apache Synapse to create mock Web services.
downloadsquad.com: It's a weird phenomenon. Nearly every computer platform steals another one's look. Vista gets accused of trying to look too much like OS X. Linux desktops get accused of trying to look like Vista (except when they're accused of ripping off OS X).
eweek.com: Open-source software has found increasing acceptance within IT for infrastructure application - but many may still wonder, 'Is it possible to run a company almost entirely with open-source offerings?'
itvoir.com: No doubt Windows is still the candy of each user’s eye but Linux has evolved over a span and made its presence felt strongly in the market gradually. With many add ons as compared to Windows, there are a few interesting features about Linux.
itwire.com: As we know, static HTML web sites are passé. Yet, Java applets never turned out to be the killer online application platform they possibly could have been. The modern introduction of Ajax has undoubtedly improved the web experience but it’s not a panacea. Here’s how to get started using the Moonlight development technology from the Mono Project.
apcmag.com: Is ASUS in bed with Microsoft? The new XP-based EeePC 900 will actually be cheaper than the Linux-based version.
techiemoe.com: Slackware is perhaps the closest thing on the market right now to a "generic" Linux distribution. You won't find branded wallpapers, special bootsplash screens, or really much at all that identifies your system as "Slackware" other than the LILO prompt.
blogbeebe.blogspot: I've never gotten angrier after reading a blog post like I did after read Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols' post "OpenSolaris Arrive just to Die". The crux of sjvn's argument is: Still, all that said, I think OpenSolaris could survive, and possibly even thrive, if it wasn’t for one sad, simple fact.
openoffice.org: The OpenOffice.org Community is pleased to announce that the public beta release of OpenOffice.org 3.0 is now available. This beta release is made available to allow a broad user base to test and evaluate the next major version of OpenOffice.org.

zdnet.com: I spent the day at a conference sponsored by our SIS developer. What’s interesting, however, was the participants’ reactions to an Asus Eee PC that one of the other attendees brought with her.
earthweb.com: James Maguire, Datamation's managing editor, claims he has no interest in software whose source code is available for editing. "I'm not a software engineer," he says. "If I can't grab it off the shelf, I can't use it." He's half-joking, of course. But he echoes the opinion of many people outside the community.
opera.com: Today we released the first alpha of our new web developer tool. The objective for this first alpha release is to get feedback and of course allow you to start using it. You should expect it to be buggy and even missing some key features, but that is what alpha means.
Joe Brockmeier: Sun finally pushed out its Project Indiana yesterday, in the form of a packaged version of OpenSolaris that looks quite a lot like a Linux distro — minus, of course, the kernel that gives Linux its name. On the one hand, I’m pleased to see any FOSS project moving forward. On the other hand, I’m wondering what problems Sun can solve with OpenSolaris that it can’t solve by participating in the Linux community?
Jonathan Corbet (LWN): Shortly before heading off to the Linux Foundation's Collaboration Summit, the laptop got moved to the Ubuntu "Hardy Heron" distribution. Needless to say, there have been some interesting ups and downs (literally) since then.
linuxsolutions.fr: Will Linux ever crossover to the average home user? It’s hard to say, but due to a lack of major advertising and marketing it could be a very longtime before anything as user friendly as Windows appears on PC Worlds shelves.
earthweb.com: Recently, Red Hat announced that it would not pursue the consumer desktop market for the time being. The latest announcement from Red Hat was neither very significant nor should it have much impact on desktop Linux as a whole.
softpedia.com: Mozilla is nearing the finish line for the latest version of its open source browser. Firefox 3.0 was initially planned for launch by the end of 2007, but Mozilla pushed the delivery deadline back all the way to mid 2008 in an effort to soften all the rough edges of the browser. It appears that the trade has paid off.

linuxdevcenter.com: Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (long-term support) launched on April 24th for desktops and servers. There is something for everyone in this version, but the LTS release will have particular appeal to enterprises. As one corporate user said to me, "I have been waiting for the release of Ubuntu 8.04, because we have to install exclusively long term support releases."
