10 fundamental differences between Linux and Windows

There is a very interesting article in Linuxtoday web site. There Jack Wallen has pointed out 10 fundamental differences between Windows and Linux operating systems. I think its worth reading the full story , though I have listed the 10 point which he discussed.
  1. Full access vs. no access
  2. Licensing freedom vs. licensing restrictions
  3. Online peer support vs. paid help-desk support
  4. Full vs. partial hardware support
  5. Command line vs. no command line
  6. Centralized vs. noncentralized application installation
  7. Flexibility vs. rigidity
  8. Fanboys vs. corporate types
  9. Automated vs. nonautomated removable media
  10. Multilayered run levels vs. a single-layered run level
Irrespective of whether I agree to above points or not , I am still a windows user [sometime I use Ubuntu too :) ]

Web services class at Georgia Tech

Today I got a very valuable chance to teach a graduate class at Georgia Tech , it is interesting because I am just starting my graduate classes this fall . It was a guest lecture about Web services and Axis2. Professor Calton Pu , has to attend a conference so he requested me to do a guest lecture in his class today. I know teaching Axis2 is not such a difficult task for me , because most of the time I live with Axis2. But teaching a graduate class was bit of challenge for me , and second it made me somewhat nervous because that was the first time I did a lecture in a university. Anyway I believe I tried my best to make it simple , since the class consist of people from different areas. Teaching Web services to graduate who is doing research on Robotics or Multimedia is kind of dull job , its not there interest area.

All members of initial Axis2 team are now in US

It is almost four years we have started Axis2 , withing this small time period Axis2 has became the de-factor Java Web service framework. A number of large companies uses Axis2 in production , while well know universities are using Axis2 for various research purposes. Regardless of the usage of Axis2 , when we start Axis2 there were only five full time people working on the project. Which included , Srinath Perera , Eran Chinthaka , Ajith Ranabahu, Chathura Herath and myself. We all did our best to make what we were doing a great product. And now we can happy we have done something useful.

The most important thing is all of the initial people who wrote Axis2 , are now doing their graduate studies in USA. I personally consider that as a great achievement as far a project is concerned. Now Axis2 is a rich project with hundred of developers , let's wait and see how many more people from Axis2 will come to do the graduate studies.
