k3rnel.net: Based on Tom Callaway’s “Fail Scale” and inspired by a recent tweet by Ryan Rix I decided to measure just how much Fail does Android have in its project.
linuxmigrante.blogspot: This has been quite a controversial weekend in the world of FLOSS. First, apparently a Linux expert wrote an article stating his return to Redmond's OS, and then there was another article criticizing the names FLOSS developers give to their creations.
