Microsoft's Linux overture: More sizzle, less steak

This Globe and Mail article by Shane Schick includes:

Evan Leibovitch is co-founder of the Linux Professional Institute and executive director of the Canadian Association for Open Source. He characterized Microsoft's Virtual Server move as a bunch of hoopla over nothing.

"What benefit does a business -- especially a small business that basically uses the computer as a tool like a cash register -- get from running two different platforms?" he asks. "What happens is, the administrator has more work to manage the virtual environment and play traffic cop between them. Virtualization may be good fashion for the vendors, but that doesn't mean the customers have to run after them."

New CLUE policy coordinator

CLUE, the organization previously known as the "Canadian Linux Users Exchange", is moving beyond Linux and Users to become a FLOSS supporting, promoting and advocating organization. I have been invited by the executive to be a policy coordinator, working for CLUE in Ottawa.
