SharePoint Designer 2007 is now free

In Office 2007, Frontpage split into 2 streams, Expression Web and SharePoint Designer. Both have the same core tools but differ in emphasis. Now instead of being a $200 tool, SP Designer is Free. Check the link for more but remember that you can use SharePoint hosts for $20+ a month from sites such as http://www.sharepointhosting.com/

Oracle is Buying Sun/MySQL

Oracle has announced that it is going to purchase Sun Microsystems which means that Java, MYSQL and other things are going from a company that was unlikely to charge for these things to a company that generally charges a bomb for everything. I think this will be good for Microsoft who generally charges less for similar products that Oracle sells becuase it has higher sales volumes. http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/blog/2009/apr/20/oracle-sun-takeover
