FOSS Devs’ Biggest Complaints: Documentation and Licensing

“What makes open source so good is often what makes it undesirable,” suggested Scott Testa, director of Entrepreneur and Business Boot Camp at Villanova University. “If you are a big corporation, you want to adhere to the license, but in some cases the legal issues are not clear. If you are a programmer, you just want to get the code writing job done.”

“What makes open source so good is often what makes it undesirable,” Scott Testa, director of Entrepreneur and Business Boot Camp at Villanova University, told LinuxInsider.

“By nature open source has poor documentation and problems trying to figure out if your intended use is legal,” Testa explained. “If you are a big corporation, you want to adhere to the license, but in some cases the legal issues are not clear. If you are a programmer, you just want to get the code writing job done.”

Quoted – Sun’s VirtualBox 3.1 Aims to Bag Enterprise Market – TechNewsWorld

Sun Microsystems has bumped its VirtualBox virtualization utility to 3.1 status. New features include a so-called teleportation ability, which lets users move a running VM between hosts on different OSes. Storage attachments are more flexible, and Sun says it’s made several performance enhancements.

“From a technical point of view, the teleportation feature creates virtual machines that have zero downtime during maintenance periods. This is a very big deal,” Scott Testa, a professor of business administration at Cabrini College in Philadelphia, told LinuxInsider.

Business Cues

The special attention that Sun Microsystems put into version 3.1 shows that it was deliberately aiming to capture the enterprise market, noted Testa.

For example, the new version has flexibility for use in a multiplatform work environment. For some businesses, not needing a homogeneous computing environment to deploy virtual machines is very important, he said.

The software works with Windows, Linux, Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) OS X, Solaris, and OpenSolaris.
