groklaw: I found a video on the Novell-Microsoft Interop Ability page that clears up for me at least part of what Microsoft wants from deals like the deal with Novell. Just what is that bridge Microsoft has had with academia, I wondered? What does Microsoft have in mind for Open Source businesses that sign up for that bridge?
Also: Novell reveals Microsoft’s open source strategy
And: What's behind Microsoft's open-source deals?
LinuxJournal: I'm a big fan of Richard Stallman and his work – even though, the first time I interviewed him, he proceeded to criticise my questions before answering them, not a journalistic experience I'd had before. Without his vision and sheer bloody-mindedness in the face of indifference and outright hostility, we would not have the vast array of free software we enjoy today.
/home/liquidat: Today I saw that a drugstore where I bought a CD was using a KDE based system for managing there CDs and DVDs. This lead to the question how many hidden KDE installations - and Linux installations in general - are out there.
CyberNetNews: Besides for those features there is one thing that I am super excited to see implemented, and that’s a user interface (UI) for managing dual monitors. Everyday I hook my laptop up to a 24" external monitor so that I can get a dual-screen setup.
Raiden's Realm: The great new operating system promised by Microsoft turns out to be a disaster. I've been going against the multi-billion dollar standard by pressing businesses to take a serious look at open source software. I use Linux almost exclusively for my own business operations.
kernelTRAP: A lengthy debate that began with a suggestion to dual license the Linux kernel under the GPLv2 and the GPLv3 [story] continues on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Throughout the ongoing thread Linux creator Linus Torvalds has spoken out on the GPLv2, the upcoming GPLv3, the BSD license, Tivo, the Free Software Foundation, and much more.
tech trouble?: There were some online services available now that can provide you Desktop like environment (some call it WebOS) through a web browser - with applications and storage spaces - that you can customize and access anytime from any computer and from any where in the world!
tipotheday.com: The GIMP. It sounds more like something you'd drag out of a dark box in your hidden underground lair than an image manipulation program -- and yet, someone, somewhere, thought it was a great name. It still secures first place on my list, but we'll move on to the more interesting ones now.
Register: Novell is gunning for a chunk of the office market share from Microsoft with the release of its open workgroup suite for small businesses.
computerworld: Trucking firm Ryder System Inc. is one of ThinkFree Inc.'s best customers. It is also a maddening example of the obstacles that ThinkFree and its pioneering founder and CEO, T.J. Kang, face trying to convince CIOs that its online office software is ready for big business.
the Inquirer: IF ANYONE CAN TAKE ON MICROSOFT it's Google. Both companies make squillions out of doing not much at all, which is the key to having your share price sit on top of the roof.
opensourcelearning: Microsoft is on the march. Novell, Xandros, Linspire, hiring Tom Hanrahan straight from the Open Source Development Labs. There should be no doubt that Microsoft has a strategy to….. Yes, to do what to Linux?
There are several non-commercial methods to achieve roughly the same goal, and in this tutorial we use IMAP (more specifically, courier-imap) to convert all our emails from PST to the Maildir format.
linux.com: All modern operating systems are able to run many programs at the same time. For example, a typical Linux server might include a Web server, an email server, and probably a database service. Each of these programs runs as a separate process. What do you do if one of your services stops working? Here are some handy command-line tools for managing processes.
networkworld: Linux is entering its second phase of growth, which will be defined by better cooperation among developers, new licensing options, and a stronger operating system, according the leaders of the nonprofit Linux Foundation.
linux-watch: Believe it or not, on my way to the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit at the Googolplex this week, I realized that I knew at least one more Linux distributor would form a partnership with Microsoft, and that the most likely one was Linspire. So, who's next?
FreeSoftware Mag: Here's the first cryptic crossword from Free Software Magazine. Most clues should lead you to words somehow associated with free software, but one or two "everyday" words have been slipped in to act as decoys.
CIO: The GNU Public License, one of the oldest and most widely selected open-source licenses, is about to get its second makeover. There’s been a lot of uncertainty about the GPL’s differences in version 3, and exactly what they mean for end users, developers and corporations.
iTWire: A few months back, the self-styled open source advocate Eric S. Raymond made a grand announcement about switching Linux distributions and moving from Fedora to Ubuntu. What Raymond did not let on at that time - February 2007 - was that he had joined the board of Freespire.
Reuters: The high priests of free software have congregated at Google Inc. headquarters this week to debate the future of the movement and face down recent patent threats by Microsoft Corp.
