Subject: Friday FOSS Week In Review

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

The trouble is, too many big publicly held companies have invested tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars of shareholder money buying up patents. Eliminating software patents, then, would wipe out billions of dollars in wealth being held not only by the trolls but by the likes of IBM, Oracle, Google, Apple and Microsoft. In other words, it isn’t going to happen. Too many of these guys employ people on K Street.Software patents are costing us even more than we realize, however. We got an inkling this week from the BBC of how much that cost might be. It seems that the trolls alone are costing the U.S. $29 billion dollars yearly, according to James Bessen and Michael Meurer who took part in a study conducted by Boston University:

Subject: Gamers asking for games for Linux on GOG.com

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

Another digital game platform GOG.com (former Good Old Games) is becoming increasingly popular. Although there have been very successful, mainly older, titles like Wing Commander or Carmageddon distributed on this game platform thus far (often bundled with DOSBox or ScummVM), today there are more newer AAA titles such as The Witcher 2 being included in the game catalog of GOG.com.

Subject: Free Software Foundation recommendations for free operating system distributions considering Secure Boot

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

"Under the guise of security, a computer afflicted with Restricted Boot refuses to boot any operating systems other than the ones the computer distributor has approved in advance. Restricted Boot takes control of the computer away from the user and puts it in the hands of someone else. To respect user freedom and truly protect user security, computer makers must either provide users a way of disabling such boot restrictions, or provide a sure-fire way that allows the computer user to install a free software operating system of her choice."

Subject: This week at LWN: A survey of Linux audio plugins

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

Whether for a word processor, an image editor, or a Web browser, plugins have become a common characteristic of modern application software design. An audio plugin functions generally in the same manner as any other kind of plugin: it extends the capabilities of the host application in some way. For example, a DAW (digital audio workstation) may have its own reverberation effect, but if the workstation supports plugins I can substitute a 3rd-party reverb plugin with preferable features and sound quality.

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

Though my track record with in-place upgrades of Linux/Unix systems is far from positive, I decided to do just that with my long-running (since late 2010) Debian Squeeze laptop today. It went surprisingly well -- and by that I mean I'm using a fully upgraded Debian Wheezy laptop to create this post in Nautilus via sftp.
