Ubuntu 10.04 Wallpapers from the Artwork Pool

Filed under
Ubuntu

omgubuntu.co.uk: I've been hesitant to plunder the talented depths of this Ubuntu Artwork pool on Flickr; pullling out some of the more 'spiffing' examples and presenting them here as I'm not too fond of pointless lists that come hand in hand with a meaningless adjective - "10 cool wallpapers", "10 awesome wallpapers", etc. Are those 10 wallpapers really "awesome" or are they 10 you found in a hurry and thought "Hmmph.

Containers, the GPL, and copyleft: No reason for concern

Though open source is thoroughly mainstream, new software technologies and old technologies that get newly popularized sometimes inspire hand-wringing about open source licenses. Most often the concern is about the GNU General Public License (GPL), and specifically the scope of its copyleft requirement, which is often described (somewhat misleadingly) as the GPL’s derivative work issue. One imperfect way of framing the question is whether GPL-licensed code, when combined in some sense with proprietary code, forms a single modified work such that the proprietary code could be interpreted as being subject to the terms of the GPL. While we haven’t yet seen much of that concern directed to Linux containers, we expect more questions to be raised as adoption of containers continues to grow. But it’s fairly straightforward to show that containers do not raise new or concerning GPL scope issues. Read more
