11 open source programming tools on the rise

Open source programming tool on the rise: Content management systems

Even today, most programmers fill up text files and push a button to compile and run the code. This is changing as users gain more and more control to alter the software as it runs.

Drupal websites, for instance, blend traditional modules with additional inserted code. Although much of this occurs on the back end, Drupal can be configured to allow users to include PHP code in data fields, enabling programmers to update a bit of running code on the fly. They're usually smart enough to do this on a test version, but sometimes they update hot, running code because it's not that hard. What could possibly go wrong?

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

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

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

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.
