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

In an opinion piece for Wired, Richard Stallman has proposed an approach to change the US patent system in a way that, he believes, would make software patents (or "computational idea patents", as he calls them) less of an issue for developers of free and open source software.

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

Five years ago on 5 November 2007, the then newly formed Open Handset Alliance (OHA) announced the launch of Android, described as a "truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices". Headed by Google, the OHA is a consortium of various organisations involved in developing the open source mobile platform. When it was founded, the group had 34 members including T-Mobile, HTC, Qualcomm and Motorola, and has since grown to 84 members including various other handset manufacturers, mobile carriers, application developers and semiconductor companies.

Subject: Puppy 5.4 Precise Screenshot Tour

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

This is it, the very first official release of Precise Puppy. Precise Puppy is built from Ubuntu 'Precise Pangolin' 12.04.1+ binary DEB packages, hence has binary compatibility with Ubuntu and access to the vast Ubuntu package repository. Couple that with Puppy's tiny size, speed and ease of use, and this is one incredible pup. It is assigned version 5.4 to indicate its position relative to the other puppies, such as Wary 5.3 and Slacko 5.3.3 (5.4 coming soon). A lot of work has happened at the 'Woof level' since the release of Wary 5.3 in April 2012 - of particular importance to Precise are the many enhancements to the Puppy Package Manager (PPM).

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

Linux software giant Red Hat has become the latest US technology behemoth to talk up the huge potential in the Chinese market, revealing plans to expand its footprint there as it attempts to come good on ambitious growth plans. CEO Jim Whitehurst told China Daily that he would be putting a greater focus on the People’s Republic, where next generation cloud projects are cropping up all over the place. "The open-source Linux system is the hero behind the scene. Most of the stock exchange market systems are based on the Linux system," he said.

I'm not exactly sure how Microsoft ended up being a Gold Sponsor of the Linuxcon event. At the Gold Level for an event, sponsorship is worth approximately $20,000 and it looks like it also comes with a guaranteed session speaking opportunity too.

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

Is Microsoft still a safe bet for the IT pro? In a word: No. As an IT worker, you have to gamble on which technology will keep you fed and housed over the coming years. For a really long time that has been Microsoft, but you don’t get paid on the past. Instead you need to peer into an uncertain future.
