ISV's-eye view, part 1: 2005 a big year for new kinds of enterprise Linux apps

The U.S. may not be turning away from the two-party system, but the enterprise application world is. The third-party candidate, Linux, is winning in many precincts, including states, counties, cities and businesses. As a result, more -- in fact, most -- independent software vendors (ISVs) are putting Linux on their development tickets, according to Niel Powers, who has been developing enterprise software for 20 years.

Powers discusses the shift toward Linux application development in part one of this two-part interview. In part two, he delivers an in-depth account of big changes happening in the tools of the development trade, integrated development environments (IDEs) and service-oriented architectures (SOAs) -- and offers tips for using both. Powers is vice president of products for the Progress Company, a business unit of Progress Software Corp., Bedford, Mass.
