Explaining Open Source's Exponential Growth

Filed under
OSS

Glyn Moody: One of the problems with open source is that much of it happens invisibly. Whereas proprietary software, which is sold, has to publicised at some point, open source can simply be written: whether or not it gets used is a question of the author's personal inclinations.

Filed under
Moz/FF

linux.com: Sunbird, Mozilla's calendar application, supports extensions just as Firefox and Thunderbird do. What kind of extensions work with a calendar? How about being able to get a weather forecast when you're setting up a golf date, or exporting your desktop calendar to a Web service?

Rawhide, I hate you!

Filed under
Linux

beranger.org: Six weeks before Fedora 9, I thought I could take the risk to install F9 Alpha and to run Rawhide instead of installing Fedora 8 and upgrade to Fedora 9 something like two months later. I was terribly wrong.

Ubuntu on My Macbook

Linux in the Mainstream: Why Does It Matter?

Filed under
Linux

linuxinsider.com: Ah, Spring. It's the time of rebirth, renewal and hope, and it's almost here! Too bad, then, that so many hopes were dashed last week when Wal-Mart announced it was pulling the Linux-driven Everex Green gPC from its retail store shelves.

The effects of open source on stock prices

Filed under
OSS

Matt Asay: Has open source been positive or negative for its primary (commercial) proponents? That's the question I asked myself yesterday about Red Hat, Sun, and Novell, and found the answer interesting. I looked at these three as they, more than any others, have results that can be isolated and directly attributed to open source.

Gentoo Monthly Newsletter: 17 March 2008

Filed under
Gentoo

gentoo.org: Hello and welcome to the third issue of the Gentoo Monthly Newsletter. Last month we ran graphical statistics on an experimental basis. While most of you think they're a good idea in general, there seemed to be general dislike for 3D pie-charts. We've replaced two pie-charts with bar-graphs, and made the remaining pie-chart two dimensional. We've also split the package addition and removal lists by week, in hopes of improving readability.

Hands on with KaOS Linux: Not just another derivative distro

For an application first demonstrated a year ago, GigJam still feels tantalizingly unfinished, with a limited number of services you can connect to, frustrating bugs when connecting to Microsoft's own services, no way to work offline and an interface you're unlikely to figure out without reading the documentation (and even then may find frustrating). It's also a fascinating glimpse into what the Microsoft Graph can unlock. The ability to filter your CRM leads information based on your meetings, or your email based on your unfulfilled orders, or your tasks based on the emails about what you're supposed to be doing -- and share that view with your colleagues -- could make you hugely productive. The ability to see the PowerPoint and the Word document you're going to use in a meeting, along with the emails everyone has had from the people you're meeting with so you know what they care about, could be a great way to prepare for the meeting. And you can do all that without sharing more information than you want (probably). It's a fantastic idea, but Microsoft really needs to improve the execution. Read more

Red Hat CEO issues call to arms for open source participation

Broadening the strength and depth of the open source community has always been a goal that has been supported by vendors and businesses alike, but a call to arms for a greater participation was the message that Red Hat wanted to get across at its annual summit. The Red Hat Summit in San Francisco was an opportunity for CEO Jim Whitehurst to talk about the ideology of open source during his keynote presentation, and a message of changing hierarchies underpinned much of what he said.
