Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Webcast Replay The Register's latest video webcast, an expert look at open source and traditional proprietary software models, is now available on-demand from the Reg archives. This broadcast explores the relative merits of open source and traditional proprietary software, and discusses how they can best be made to co-exist happily.

El Reg event moderator Tim Phillips welcomed Steve Harris of Novell and Freeform Dynamics' Tony Lock into our swanky London studio. Joining the chaps over the wire from across the pond were Frank Rego of Novell and Jose Thomas of Microsoft. Together, the panel crammed a wealth of practical advice, real world insight and answers into sixty minutes, sharing expertise and anecdotes on:

  • What businesses adopt when it comes to open source and proprietary
  • How open source and proprietary can fit side by side
  • Making interoperability work
  • Novell and Microsoft working together
  • Selling in the ideas and getting started

Proceedings were rounded out with the now obligatory Q&A session, giving those watching the ability to grill the experts with their questioning.

It's a must watch and it is free. Get yourself comfortable and get acquainted with our on-demand edition. ®
