Subject: Open source is not limited to software

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

The value of the open source model is unconstrained innovation, transparent credibility, and decentralized control. It's not limited to software technology; it is a culture of knowledge-sharing and collaboration, and it applies equally to all fields.

Subject: Disney and FOSS: Fun and FUD in the Magic Kingdom?

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

They say it's a small world after all, but in the Magic Kingdom, it appears to be a FUD-filled world as well. How else to explain a recent episode of "Shake It Up" on the Disney Channel? Asked to diagnose a misbehaving PC, a stereotypically geeky character asks, "Did you use open source code to save time and the virus was hidden in it?" Much canned laughter ensued, of course -- as did widespread outrage.

Subject: Open source author pulls code after GPL abuse

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

Robert Rosario, the developer behind the open source document management tool Mayan EDMS, has pulled the development code of the software from public repositories he says it's being pinched by folks who use it in ways not allowed by the GNU Public Licence. In a Google+ post, Rosario says he works hard to make the software, happily releases it for free but uses the GPL but reserves the right to retain property rights to the code. That's perfectly fair, he argues, given that the code is free to download and use.

Subject: NVIDIA To Discontinue Linux Support For Some GPUs

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

I have confirmed with NVIDIA that the current 304.xx Linux graphics driver series is "the last release branch for some cards, including GeForce 6/7." NVIDIA has previously said that their 306 Windows graphics driver will remove support for the GeForce 6 and GeForce 7 series graphics processors. With the largely shared code-base between Windows and Linux/Solaris/BSD, it could be presumed that they would be removing the support for all platforms. NVIDIA's Hardy Doelfel confirmed to me today that it's indeed the case.

Subject: How Apple killed the Linux desktop

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

(CNN) -- It's hard to say exactly what percentage of desktop and laptop computers run Apple OS X, but it's clear that the operating system has made slow but steady gains at chipping away at that the sizable lead Microsoft established in the '90s with its Windows operating system. Some figures put the number at about 6 to 7 percent of the desktop market.But one thing's for sure: OS X has been more successful than Linux, the open source operating system that has found a home on data-center servers but is still a rarity on desktops and laptops. Linux may have seen a surge last year, but it still hasn't seen the sort of growth OS X has, nor the growth that Linux supporters have long hoped for.
