SUSE

blogbeebe.blogspot: I've been waiting to upgrade europa, who's been running Mandriva 2008.1 Power Pack. I've been quite happy with it. Of course, the only reason to upgrade is because Mandriva 2009.0 Power Pack is the new hotness, which makes 2008.1 old and busted.

2014: A Banner Year for Open Source

Open source was initially adopted for low cost and lack of vendor lock-in, but customers have found that it also results in better innovation and more flexibility.

Anyone who bothers to look can see that meritocracy is more of an ideal than a standard practice in free software. The idea that people should be valued for their contributions may seem to be a way to promote fairness, but the practice is frequently more complicated. Read more Also: Unmanagement and unleadership
