The two types of user accounts are Administrator and Standard. The user account created during the installation process is, by default, of the Administrator type. That is the superuser. A user with that account can perform any task on the system.

Subject: OSI Announces It Will Open the Organization to Individual Members

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

Wednesday, July 17, at the O'Reilly Open Source Conference in Portland, Oregon, the Open Source Initiative (OSI) announced a new initiative to open up the organization to individual members. Historically, the organization was open only to affiliate members, so this announcement marks a significant new direction for the open-source advocate. The shift represents a move from a governance model of volunteer and self-appointed directors to one driven by members.

Subject: Linux Game: Linux Tycoon

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

Linux Tycoon is a management game set in the world of the Linux distributions. We will have to create our distribution with the goal of making it the most used and famous in the world. An interesting thing of this game is the economical plan that its author Bryan Lunduke is “testing”, getting paid by the community for working on open source projects, the goal is to get 4.000 $ in donations every month. In the first month (June 2012) he reached the goal in just 1 week, and so he released this game and other projects he’s working on as GPL software, but sadly just the following month he made a sad post on his blog “Open Source Funded By Donations? Not So Much” where in short he wrote ; Unfortunately things didn’t quite work out.

Subject: How free is my phone?

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

You might think that your phone is open, but even Android, Tizen and Firefox OS all depend upon highly proprietary code bases for making telephone calls and transferring data. When it comes to these fundamental capabilities, the open source part of a mobile software stack is only the tip of the iceberg, and behind APIs and simple interfaces for voice, SMS and data lies the technology that makes wireless communications possible – and it's far from being open source.
