Open Source Day at Microsoft

Filed under
Microsoft

openlogic.com/blogs: Over at Microsoft, they've just celebrated their first Open Source Day. I think Jamie Cannon was right when he (she?) joked that "Hell has frozen over". All along, I've been expecting the standard response and outcome: first they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win. It looks like we're on the right track.

Filed under
Ubuntu

beranger.org: I have been using Ubuntu 8.04 as Xubuntu since Alpha 5, which eventually pissed me off enough to drop it yesterday. When things that worked are breaking just 3 weeks before the release of a LTS... this is not "normal", or is it?

What you get for free

Filed under
Software

kmandla.wordpress: For good or for evil, a default Ubuntu Hardy command-line-plus-xorg system doesn’t leave you penniless and stranded. You actually get a fair smattering of clunky little programs that work just fine, but are ugly as sin and unlikely to make you happy — unless you’re working at around 100Mhz or so.

Linux/Android hacker SBC with hexa-core Rockchip SoC debuts at $75

The Vamrs “RK3399 Sapphire” SBC is on sale for $75, or $349 for a full kit. Vamrs is also prepping an RK3399-based “Rock960” 96Boards SBC.
