Hosting Choice – Linux Vs Windows

When choosing a web hosting operating system, there is always a struggle as to which one – Linux and Windows – will provide the best web hosting solution. Just like your desktop or laptop requires an operating system to work and run applications, your web server too needs an operating system that can manage various applications on both a multi-user and multi-tasking basis. If you already have a preference while choosing the OS for your web hosting, you decide it accoringly. The OS of the server that will be hosting the client’s web site is important for a number of reasons. The operating system has an effect on server uptime and reliability, hosting price, the amount of administration the client has to put into the site and server, the applications that can be used on the site and much more.

The Future of Computing and Mobile Devices

Over the last 15 years, I have seen a definite and steady move from Desktop Computing to Web Computing. Applications that ran on the desktop made a shift towards web applications. Words such as SaaS (Software as a Service) started being used by large and small software companies to sell their applications to a wider Internet audience.

And now, I see the shift from this towards Mobile Computing. A rich client side application running on a mobile device such as an iPhone, attracts users because of the sheer convenience of use. No longer do I need my computer to access popular applications such as Twitter or Flickr.

Here are the things I now use my mobile device for:
  Check Twitter feeds and Facebook,
  Use my bank account, even to transfer funds,
  Check my email, search and browse,
  Upload photos to Flickr,
  Use Salesforce on the go (Helps me check on sales straight away),
  And much much more.

These are a few questions that come to our mind when we think about a Team in general. A Team is a group of people working together to achieve a common goal. In the process, each person is assigned different responsibilities. Real team work happens when each person starts contributing more to the team in one way or the other, in addition to performing their assigned responsibilities. For example, document the solution to a new problem that was encountered within the team and share it with everyone.
