Filed under
Software

A great many people find new interfaces downright puzzling. However, most interfaces share common features. Having been there and done that, Don Parris shows the technologically challenged how to find their way around nearly any graphical interface, whether it's an operating system GUI or a new office suite.

The Licensing and Compliance Lab interviews AJ Jordon of gplenforced.org

I don't know about you, but when I say I want my programs to respect users' freedom, I mean it. So GPL enforcement is important.
