In this article Sir John Whitmore, columnist with the daily Telegraph motoring section, looks at a new approach to development. We all face an environmental crisis. Hybrid cars and biofuels might be interim steps in the right direction, but they are not sustainable solutions. Conventional wisdom predicts great technical problems and cost in overcoming these problems. But what about unconventional wisdom?
Life of a Linux user was a lot less stressful back in the nineties. The difficulty of installing and maintaining a Linux distribution ensured that only those who had made an effort to learn the UNIX command line were able to use it effectively. The rest of the population was simply out of the game. Today, things are different.

I used to think that the best first step to explore Linux was through a live Linux CD. Over the course of the last year, my advice evolved. Now through the wonders of virtualization, a new Linux user could boot a live Linux CD without having to actually reboot your machine.
It wasn't more than five or six seconds after Red Hat Inc announced it was acquiring open source Java middleware and application development tool provider JBoss Inc a few weeks ago that the entire IT industry starting wondering what Red Hat might do next. The most obvious thing for Red Hat to do now would seem to be to go farther up the software stack and deliver its own database. But don't count on Red Hat doing that any time soon.
Matt Ettus has the sly smile of someone who sees the invisible. His hands fly over the boards of his Universal Software Radio Peripheral, or USRP, snapping them together with an antenna like Lego bricks. Then he plugs in the naked boards to a USB 2 cable snaking to his Linux laptop.
