Massive open source email & collaboration platform Roundcube beats Indiegogo funding goal

Filed under
OSS

Simply put, Roundcube is the unsung work horse of web mail.

But a decade is an eternity in technology. When Roundcube started, mobile devices were large, clunky affairs used by the few. Today they are the most commonly used communication device. Roundcube Next is today’s answer to that radical change. Instead of once more embarking alone on that ten year journey, Roundcube Next is about building a strong, healthy and diverse Open Source community to achieve that task within 12 to 18 months.

8 open source platforms for IT consideration

Filed under
OSS

Usually, the higher-ed industry has a reputation as being one of the slowest adopters of new technology. But when it comes to open source software (OSS), campus IT departments are ahead of other industry and consumer tech adoption curves, says Scott Wilson, service manager of OSS Watch at the University of Oxford.

“On the face of it, higher education has been relatively quick to realize the benefits, notes Wilson. “Over 50 percent of higher education institutions use open source, both on the server and on the desktop. And one of the great open source success stories in higher education is the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).”

NVIDIA Starts Supplying Open-Source Hardware Reference Headers

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks

There's another step forward today in NVIDIA's open-source/Linux hardware support! NVIDIA will begin supplying hardware reference headers for the Nouveau DRM driver.

While NVIDIA right now is the primary choice for Linux gamers and those willing to use proprietary hardware drivers, the same cannot be said about those that are strict into using fully open-source code on their systems. The NVIDIA open-source support has lagged behind Intel and AMD on Linux with NVIDIA not officially supporting the community-based, mostly-reverse-engineered Nouveau driver. The only exception so far has been for the NVIDIA Tegra hardware where they actively have been working on the Tegra K1 (and newer) graphics driver support for the open-source driver.
