Thoughts on badgaminit?

Thanks for the post. You mentioned using badgaminit parts in your post. I am currently looking to purchase a button machine and have investigated Badgaminit, as well as a few others, including American Button Machines (which I linked to above) and ButtonBiz. Did you choose Badgamit for a specific reason over some of the other online button machine merchants? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!

SaaL-Software as a License is in decline while SaaS - Software as a Service and OpenSource is ascendant. And why not ? SaaL has ever more prickly EULA agreements protecting software vendors from providing service except on their own terms and prices; while Open Source and SaaS both put Service and Support upfront as their key competitive advantage. Also major firms such as Adobe, Borland, Microsoft, Oracle, Quicken, and many others find themselves competing as the highest cost producers in an ever wider array of markets. There is a software sea change going on and LinuxWorld is at its epicenter both on the desktop and on the server.

For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
