Request for Help


	I'm doing some of the co-ordination work for the "Development -
Powered by Linux" section at IT.COM. I just got this suggestion from Biju
Chacko and I'd like some help on this. Hey says

Now the problem really being that for me atleast, for a long time
middleware == vapourware. What I'd like to know from the community really

a) What are the kind of middleware products that are useful and available
b) How many of them are Linux oriented / centric
c) Which of them would be optimum to install / demo

	I'm really out of my depth here and I'd like all the help that I
could get. TIA.
