OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications

Filed under
OSS

If you ask me, one of the widely used software at any time - if you discount the web browser and the text editor - would be a word processor. But all these applications (baring the open source ones) encourage their users in saving the files in their own unique file formats.

Hardware Vendors Missing Open-source Opportunity

Filed under
OSS

Enterprising hardware hackers managed another coup this week, having successfully installed a version of the open source DD-WRT firmware on the latest revision of the Linksys WRT54G wireless router. Linksys still markets a Linux-powered version of the router, now known as the WRT54GL. But the custom firmware community sees this as a halfhearted acknowledgment of its efforts, at best. At worst, it sees Linksys as thumbing its nose at some of its staunchest supporters. But why does it have to be this way?
