Speaking as a musician, this software is poorly designed. Foot switch? Yes, it's USB, and it's already in use thank you. Page turning should me linked to the metronome. The preferred storage format is MIDI, not pdf or jpg. This is
pretty useless. Revive PowerTab, port it to linux, make the format open source, then you'd have something musicians have been asking for.

Most purchased sheet music comes with viewers. Dont forget that most sheet music is copywritten. Real musicians (even us shoestring budget garage bands) will pay. When I publish, I want my royalties, too.

As long as we are talking about how awesome our Drupal cover story is, I should point out that is a Drupal site, and I am a very happy Drupal user. Learning curve, shmerning curve. ;)

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

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.
