Believe it or not, Docker, Linux's hottest container software, is now available on Microsoft Azure. Oh, and Microsoft has open-sourced its code. Will miracles never cease!?

Some interesting debates around Agile over at Quora - my favourite quote:

"The agile principles are indeed excellent ones.  Principles are important things to try to live up to.  No-one does, of course, all the time.  But most people substitute following rules for principles.   When you have principles, you decide what to do in a given situation by what you are trying to accomplish, and how your principles guide you to accomplish it.  You use judgement.  When you follow a bunch of rules, judgement goes out the window.  Nothing could be less agile than following rules."
