When Condoleeza Rice asked, "who could have imagined a terrorist would use a plane to crash into a building" after 9/11, people were quick to point out "Tom Clancy." Well, here we go again.

Subject: Dear Microsoft, Thanks for Windows 8! Love Linux

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

From the 'End of the Traditional Desktop' files: Microsoft has a big launch event today in New York City for Windows 8. Surprisingly I got invited, but no I won't be there. Linux users like myself however really should thank Microsoft though, Window 8 is truly a great gift.

Subject: Contest aims to give open source projects a second wind

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

The Code for America Brigade recently launched Race for Reuse. It[he]#039[/he]s a different kind of contest that aims to increase adoption of existing open source projects with real dollars. The goal isn[he]#039[/he]t to build something brand new—it[he]#039[/he]s to encourage volunteer teams (called "brigades") across the U.S. to stand up and support existing open source projects. Because one of the more difficult parts of deploying open source apps is building the user community around the projects and getting citizens engaged.

Subject: The Disappearing Cloud

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

A recent survey found that most respondents had no clue what the term "Cloud Computing" meant, but were using cloud services without realizing it. And that's fine because our goal shouldn't be to advance industry buzz words, it should be to make good services that people use, regardless what you call the technology behind it.

Subject: Welcome Windows 8 to a Post-Desktop World

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

A lot has changed in the three years since the last major Windows announcement. Netbooks were on the rise. The iPad wouldn’t be introduced for another six months and Nokia still had the lead for most smartphone sales in the world. Only 172 million smartphones were sold in 2009 vs. an estimated 146 million units in just one quarter of this year. Without wide adoption of tablets or smartphones, Microsoft still dominated the world of personal computing. Linux, while popular in the server room, was virtually non-existent in consumer products, except for its brief rise in netbooks before Microsoft reportedly pressured its OEMs to stop production and shift back to Windows.

I've been interested in 3-D printers ever since I saw one at a Maker Faire afew years ago, but it was only a year ago when I started seriously thinkingabout having one of my own. At that point, I started to realize just howmany different options existed and ultimately startedresearching the RepRap family of 3-D printers (more on the different printerfamilies below).
