Filed under
Reviews

There was a time, not that long ago, when you were lucky if you could get two years of shelf life out of a technology book. The irony of this lament hit me hard when I realized that only five months ago I was reviewing Red Hat Fedora 5 Unleashed. Just as Fedora Core 5 (a free, open-community, version of Red Hat) was a solid build and Fedora Core 6 enhances it, the Unleashed 5 book was a good one, and this book builds on that solid foundation.

The birth of a FOSS application

Filed under
OSS

Late in 2005, my brother needed free, easy to use mailing list software to reach out to some 3,000 fans he acquired while touring the country with his band King Wilkie.

What I learned may be as valuable as the software I helped create.
