Subject: Ubuntu: you’re doing it wrong

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

Ubuntu is awesome and it’s all about the community — at least if you believe the marketing (from both Canonical employees and unpaid volunteers). But if you start looking beyond the hype, a somewhat different picture emerges. Ubuntu was the first Linux distro I ever installed and I have been following news about the project for about six years now, but in the last two years a new pattern is emerging.

Subject: How the CRTC Helped Stifle Internet Throttling

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

Hockey may be Canada's national pastime, but criticizing the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) surely ranks as a close second. From the substitution of Canadian commercials during the Super Bowl broadcast to Canada's middling performance on broadband Internet services, the CRTC is seemingly always viewed as the target for blame. Yet if the commission is criticized (sometimes wrongly) when it makes mistakes, it surely deserves kudos when it gets things right.

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

The acronym “FRAND” is very much in the news today, and with good reason. So intense is the competition to control the future of mobile devices that not only standards, but the finer details relating to the pledging of patents to facilitate the implementation of standards, have become the subject of headlines in the technology press.

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

We’ll hear it when we reach the end of a line, we’ll hear it when we hit tab to complete a word and there’s more than one choice, in about 2 minutes you won’t hear it anymore. It’s the simplest thing to do but we never look into it – because most of the time when the bell goes off we’re in the middle of something else.

However, now Apple after it acquired it from its developer Michael Sweet, at Easy Software Products, in 2007, has chosen to abandon certain Linux exclusive features, and continuing with popular Mac OS X features.
