I woke this morning to news that rocked my world. Jono Bacon was a Fedora employee and he had decided to tell the entire world about it. His conscience had finally wrestled with his ID and won.

I must have written and deleted this blog post 100 times over the last week. I have wrestled with my conscience and moral sense of fidelity and feel I need to share what has become an increasing addiction, but in the words of an Australian all crimes are in the past. But before we reach forgiveness, we must reach acceptance.

~ Jono Bacon

Having met Jono this revelation tore a whole in the fabric of my universe. I was set afloat in a leaky boat. I could only hope that it was not going to be a Split Enz experience.

Google and ODF

  • Fuzz about Google supporting odf
    First of all because the support comes way too late. Secondly because its not even close to be good. Back several years ago Google was politically supporting the process of getting odf approved as an open standard but they never really bothered. The business was clearly to keep both odf and ooxml/docx out of their products and keep their own proprietary document format. Implementing good and solid interoperability is actually not difficult but it is a huge task. Google could have done this three or four years ago if they wanted to. But they didn't. Both proprietary software vendors has been busy making interoperability difficult while the providers of true open standards has been improving interoperability month by month.

That's according to a statement from Google's open source chief speaking about the future of the company's cloud-based app suite.

Fedora 21

Fedora 21 is out and I’ve been able to spend some time with it. The last version of Fedora I looked at was more than two years ago, so there have been quite a few changes since then. The new version of Fedora comes in three basic options: Fedora Cloud, Fedora Server and Fedora Workstation. Read more
