This is one in a series of podcasts that began with meets and greets, and phone meetings that came out of the Red Hat Summit, which was held in Boston in June 2008. Other of these podcasts are available under the Open Source Software tab on ebizQ.net so I urge you to take a look.

One thing that I'm always looking for because I believe it is such an important factor in the information technology market, is software product that help give users open choice not just open source. And one of the products I saw at the Summit fit that bill in my opinion. It was actually new that month it's called Xandros BridgeWays Product for Red Hat and it is part of a product line of mixed-environment, cross-platform Windows/Linux Management Tools.

Just what the doctor ordered if you have to work in the real world that includes a mix of this and that. With this product, Windows administrators can even manage your Red Hat servers directly from their Windows machine. The product is marketed by Xandros, which, separate subject, also recently acquired Linspire. So there's a lot of open source/open choice stuff going on here.

My guest, Marc Bellefleur, is product development manager at Xandros and he explains the open choice characteristic of BridgeWays in more detail. Marc has been with Xandros for four years and before that had a similar role with Corel.
