Red Hat Linux vs. the World

Filed under

InforWorld Blogs: Several people have asked when I think Red Hat is going to do a IP protection deal with Microsoft and the answer is that I don't think they will.

What Does MS Want? -- Brains for Sale?

Filed under

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?

And: What's behind Microsoft's open-source deals?

Should We Fight for Ogg Vorbis?

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.

The worst open source project names

Filed under
Humor 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.
