Open source has won, let's look to the future

Filed under
OSS

Here I expand on the lessons I've learned from other people working in open source, new technologies emerging in open source that haven't come of age yet, my passion for open source not being a Zero Sum game, and bringing open source to other parts of society and industry.

Lessons I've learned

I’ve been fortunate in having access to a lot of smart people and I believe Joy’s Law ("No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else.") holds true universally. I explained in my keynote is that I have stopped trying to be the expert in open source and have strived instead to be a student. That’s when I started to really learn about what makes open source work, and I felt strongly that those lessons needed to be shared. These are just a few of the many lessons I have learned.

No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
