Linux Journal Contents #185, September 2009
In a world of full of standards creating Cross Platform applications ought to be simple, right? Well the important word there is full: you can't walk down the street these days without tripping over somebody's standard. As always it's Open Source to the rescue. This month we highlight a few of the tools available for doing Cross Platform Development: Lazurus, Qt, and Titanium. We also have an interview with the developers of Google Chrome, the newest cross platform browser. Along with our features we have our usual spate of articles on Linux and Open Source: Shoulda (a favorite tool of Hillary Clinton), AppArmor, ImageMagick, Openfire, SocNetV, Linux-MiniDisc, Open Source Compliance, and in the slow but never ending evolution of our own Kyle Rankin, he gets one step closer to being a fan of Twitter by using tircd.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
