Black Duck Offers Free Software IP Scanning Until 2006
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

When any new idea comes to market, it takes a little time for it to be understood and absorbed by companies, and the fact that the company promoting a product that encapsulates that idea needs to pay its employees and bills can complicate and extend the product ramp-up process.

VMware's Revenue Growth Slows as VM Player Debuts
by Timothy Prickett Morgan

The VMware subsidiary of disk array maker EMC continues to be a bright spot in its financial results and is equally importantly a clear example that EMC is capable of innovating--even if it did buy in the smarts of the VMware team as well as that from Data General, Legato Systems, Documentum, and others.
