Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

PingWales, the source for independent IT news in Wales, has been forced to shut up shop just before celebrating its three year anniversary.

Editor and publisher Basheera Khan told the Reg: "When we started, just less than three years ago, many people said that Wales did not have a large enough IT industry to support a news service. It looks like they were right - we just couldn't bring in enough advertising revenue."

Khan said the team had been overwhelmed by the response from readers. They received dozens of calls and emails saying they would be missed.

Negotiations over the domain name are continuing but probably won't be resolved for a few months while the company is wound-up. Some of the most popular pages on the site, tutorials on OpenBSD, will be donated to the OpenBSD documentation project. ®
