Open software isn't just a programming- and software-licensing methodology; it's also a political philosophy and a revolutionary movement — something made clear by Linux projects like FreedomBox.
Its first foray into the small business Network Attached Storage (NAS) market, Western Digital's new WD Sentinel DX4000 stands out mainly by virtue of its use of Windows Server 2008 R2 Essentials rather than Linux, as on most other NAS boxes.The hardware is pretty unremarkable, Western Digital opting for a dual-core Intel D525 Atom to drive its appliance supported by 2GB of DDR3 RAM.
Compelling and affordable services and near-ubiquitous network coverage more important than price to entice consumers in emerging markets to switch to low-end 3G handsets, observers say.
It's no doubt that one of the leaders for network equipment is Cisco Systems. Newer Cisco devices are starting to use what Cisco calls its "IOS-XE" operating system, which is a customized flavor of GNU/Linux.
