Subject: Committed, until the monopoly comes calling

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Every other year there is a fresh commitment that open source solutions will be preferred for government funded projects, and that open standards will be adopted ‘wherever possible’. The logic for these decisions is well understood, but is soon forgotten when the monopoly comes calling, says Richard Hillesley…

Subject: How to kill movie piracy: charge $1 for movies, and 50c for episodes

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Movie piracy is the next big thing. The RIAA is quickly realising that their reputation is nearly beyond unrecoverable, after taking to court single mums, dead people, and children. In the meantime, in Australia they are having secret meetings to try and work out a way to prevent movie privacy. The solution is simple: to kill movie privacy, allow people to download movies, make it cheap, and make it easy. Yes it's hard. But yes, it's rewarding.

Subject: Shuttleworth remixes Ubuntu... for biz users

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Inspired by the tweaks of Ubuntu-using IT departments, Canonical has released a Business Desktop Remix of Ubuntu. Re-chopping Ubuntu according to the most common changes that business users make to their installs, Canonical product leader Mark Shuttleworth hopes that the new desktop-friendly boot will make it easier for businesses to work out how they can use the operating system. "Booting straight into a business-oriented image makes it easier for institutional users to evaluate Ubuntu Desktop for their specific needs", he said in a blog introducing the remix.
