I was reading through the introduction and I saw the following phrase:
"XenServer, a Citrix product, is technically a open-source hypervisor, however
commercial support is available through Citrix."

The "however" implies that open-source hypervisors don't have commercial support, which is false.

All the best,

Hi again,

I would like to add that GVSIG is not "the only one of these products that touts a mobile edition".

QGIS also has a mobile edition for windows 7-8 touch enabled tablets.


On chapter 5.1.1 Capsule review.

The Postgis SQL Query Editor plugin that you mention for QGIS is deprecated for some time and is replaced by DB Manager - a core plugin. For now it has support for SQLITE and Postgis.

Great book,

Thank you,
