While these issues play out and garner the most attention, it is essential to view the consultations as an important opportunity to emphasize to policy makers that open source is where innovation is happening and that the policies they shape going forward need to acknowledge and embrace this reality. All who share this view need to make their voices heard.
Hear ye, hear ye! Valve just pushed a few minutes ago a new, massive update to the stable branch of their Steam desktop client for GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Google (GOOG) Releases Faster Mobile Web Browsing In New Open-Source Initiative With Twitter And 38 News Organizations
We're increasingly living in a mobile world, and Google wants to make it a better experience. The search giant on Wednesday announced an initiative called "Accelerated Mobile Pages" (AMP) that makes viewing news articles on a smartphone even faster, the company said at a New York City event.
Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust has rolled out the first open source electronic patient record (EPR) in the UK.
The system – now live in A&E, theatres, outpatients and the hospital’s 30 wards – is pioneering changes in the NHS as trusts have always depended on proprietary software to record and manage patient information.
Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust the first to go live with the openMAXIMS open-source electronic patient record system (EPR) in a landmark deal
Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust has customised openMaxims software for an electronic patient record that could be reused by other organisations
Bassel sent his letters from Adra prison, a civilian jail in the northeast outskirts of Damascus. Even representatives of the Assad government admit that conditions in Adra are overcrowded and inhumane. The prison was designed for 2,500 and now houses 9-11,000 prisoners. Single rooms hold fifty to a hundred cellmates. Food rations are minimal and prisoners must often pay bribes for sleeping materials. Nearby, according to reports, anti-regime forces attempted to seize the compound.
EFF has joined with organizations around the world in calling for Syria to reveal the whereabouts of detained technologist Bassel Khartabil. Khartabil's arbitrary detention and treatment by the Syrian authorities have been cause for concern since his initial arrest three and a half years ago. Fears have grown for his safety after he was taken from civil prison to an unknown destination on Saturday. He is one of the five current cases that EFF tracks in our Offline campaign to protect unjustly imprisoned technologists and bloggers.
“Making machine data accessible, usable, and valuable to everyone” was the main theme at the Splunk .conf2015 last month in Las Vegas. The thousands attending this event are a clear proof of the growing importance and interest in collecting, analyzing and gaining insights from machine data. This interest started years ago mostly with IT related logs but will spread to cover all types of machine generated data. The growing IoT space will make today's pile of machine data dwarf compared to what else is coming our way in the form of logs and other data generated by machines and sensors.
We reported a couple of months ago that the GNOME developers decided to add codenames to upcoming releases of the open source desktop environment, starting with GNOME 3.18.
Ever looked up at the night sky and tried to identify specific celestial bodies out of the millions you can see? Stellarium is an awesome open source planetarium application available in Fedora to help you identify and track objects in the night sky. Basically, it simulates the night sky and provides labels and other tools to help you know what you are actually looking at.
From those days until today, I have never had a job that didn't give me the flexibility to run Linux as my operating system. I've been fortunate enough to have had managers who were more interested in me being efficient rather than compliant with the company's policy. Every single one of them when they saw me automating manual processes with Perl, awk, bash, sed, would without hesitation say: "Sure, use Linux! Tell me more about it while you are at it."
Red Hat today announced that it has joined the Node.js Foundation as a Platinum member, underscoring its commitment to developers, Node.js, and open source collaboration.
As commercial open source companies have proliferated, it's become a given that there will be multi-billion dollar firms focused exclusively on open source. And, Red Hat has proven to be shining proof of concept in this area. The company has steadily innovated, but is also focused on how other companies and partners are creating innovative solutions that orbit Red Hat's own products.
Last week I told you about a few of the more than 130 speakers scheduled for this year’s All Things Open (ATO) conference in Raleigh, to be held October 19-20. Today, we’ll talk about the impressive lineup of keynote speakers who’re on tap this year.
Actually, it’s something of a miracle that the event is still good-to-go. IT-oLogy, the organization behind ATO, is headquartered in Columbia, S.C., which was subject to massive flooding last week in the wake of hurricane Joaquin. In fact, the organizations headquarters are located only blocks away from the Congaree River, the source of much flooding.
Discussions at the upcoming 2015 Red Hat (NYSE: RHT) Government Symposium will focus on open source software and how it is utilized in agencies to build innovation, GovCon Executive reported Tuesday.
Red Hat said Oct. 1 Damon Edwards, co-founder at DTO Solutions, will provide the keynote address at the Nov. 10 event to be attended by more than 600 IT professionals from government and industry.
The Linux Journal today addressed the Microsoft-buying-Canonical rumors saying it's against Ubuntu's founding principles. Reactions to the two kernel resignations this week are mixed and we'll take a look. Elsewhere, KDE signs the User Data Manifesto 2.0 and American Trade Journal looks at the business end of Red Hat lately.
OpenSwitch offers the now-familiar, thanks to the likes of Big Switch and Cumulus Networks, chance to buy a white box switch and run your own operating system on it. In a colossal non-surprise, the NOS is Linux-based. HP will happily install it on its own Altoline switches, or you can have a go yourself on Open Compute Project boxen.
PCWorld recently published an article about Linux botnets launching DDoS attacks. The attackers find and exploit poorly secured Linux systems. Some Linux users have a fairly cavalier attitude about security, assuming the supposedly superior design of the OS somehow protects them. It doesn't. Now that Chromebooks outsell Windows laptops and Amdroid devices are ubiquitous the days when Linux was a secondary target for malware are long gone. Linux' prominence in both the server room and on consumer devices make it a prime target.
