New hybrid storage solutions

The latest raft of directors appointed to the board of the OMG holds out little hope, or hype for the Linux community. The object management group (OMG) today appointed nine directors to its board from a range of different software companies but no great figures from Linux were there. Instead, a spokeswoman for the OMG said that the software industry had suffered a series of setbacks on Wall Street over the last six days. She said: "People are not signing big contracts any more. It's going to be a really tough time in the software industry. You have these seriously high rated stocks and the rest are all being marked down." Instead, she pointed us to a Linux-affiliated web site, which is Mico. She insisted that all the real Corba money was still in non-OSS software, as reported here last Autumn. ®
