ostatic.com/blog: It's been a while since we here at OStatic checked in on FLOSS Manuals, an ambitious effort to produce free, online documentation for open source software. Here are some of the details on what's new there.
linuxinsider.com: Does money make the FOSS world go round? Perhaps. Making money is what gives people and projects "the option of continuing to be free, as opposed to 'selling out' or abandoning the whole thing just to pay the bills."
osor.eu: More than a hundred schools across Finland are using open source for all of their desktop PCs, according to Opinsys, an open source services provider.
ostatic.com/blog: Can businesses and organizations paying for expensive licenses for proprietary software successfully switch to free, open source alternatives?
eweekeurope.co.uk: The open source FSF group has recruited a former proprietary software exec to make the GNU Project's work more accessible

ghabuntu.com: In a Sunday conversation with Luqman, we discussed what we thought were the best avenues for the adoption of Open Source on a larger scale. We agreed that students and small business could be key influencers in the future widespread use of FOSS.
standardsandfreedom.net: When I was freshly elected at the OpenOffice.org’s Community Council the Free Software Foundation approached us with a question related to our extensions web site. Basically they felt that we should not be hosting non Free Software extensions and requested we take those down.
