Subject: Open source incest: GPL forked by its coauthor

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

Will licensing licentiousness rile Free Softies?One of the principal authors of version 3 of the Gnu General Public License (GPL) has spun off his own version of the license without the participation of the Free Software Foundation (FSF), in a move that could ruffle feathers in the often-cantankerous free software community.…

Subject: Verizon: net neutrality violates our free speech rights

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

Verizon pressed its argument against the Federal Communications Commission's new network neutrality rules on Monday; filing a legal brief with the United States Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. The company argued the FCC's rules not only exceeded the agency's regulatory authority, but also violated network owners' constitutional rights. Specifically, Verizon believes that the FCC is threatening its First Amendment right to freedom of speech and its property rights under the Fifth Amendment.Verizon believes that Congress has not given the FCC the power to impose network neutrality regulations on the nation's ISPs. Last year, the firm sued to stop the implementation of the rules the FCC adopted in December 2010.

Puppy Linux is a great lightweight LINUX distribution that comes in multiple forms. Which is the best? Wary, Slacko or Lucid. In the 3rd and final part of the series I review the power of Lucid Puppy and make a somewhat shocking confession.

Subject: Csync2 a filesystem syncronization tool for Linux

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

Sometimes is useful to sync automatically files over the net between 2 or more computers, maybe you want to keep some configuration files aligned on different servers or maybe you have a cluster of web servers and you want to keep their document root aligned so your customer will always see the same result.You could do this with a network filesystem like NFS, GlusterFS or Coda File system.But why do complicated things when you could easily do this just keeping in sync the local filesystem ?In a former article I’ve talked about Unison to do a work like that, and it works, the limit of Unison is that you can have just 2 nodes, but if you have more nodes you have to use a different solution like the one i present you today: csync2

Subject: Former Microsoft exec: Microsoft has ‘become the thing they despised’

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

Eichenwald uses details learned from dozens of interviews with current and former Microsoft executives as well as confidential corporate records to piece together the long string of decisions that has lost Microsoft its leadership position in several key markets. As Vanity Fair points out, “a single Apple product—the iPhone—generates more revenue than all of Microsoft’s wares combined.”
