11 open source programming tools on the rise

Open source programming tool on the rise: NoSQL

The NoSQL trend started several years ago, but it keeps heating up as more websites recognize that their future is in vast quantities of data that don't need all of the belts and suspenders protections offered by serious databases like Oracle.

The latest tools make it easier to deploy NoSQL into clouds. Amazon's SimpleDB can be paid for by the byte, and many other teams are offering additional NoSQL tools as services. Cassandra, for example, is supported by DataStax. MongoDB has inspired more than a handful of cloud hosts. The tools continue to proliferate, boasting almost too many to list. Thank goodness someone is maintaining a list of all the NoSQL databases.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
