This Week's Open Source Round Up

Filed under
OSS

Looks like a theme for 2006 is beginning to emerge: Intellectual property issues. Not only was GPL3 still a hot topic this week, but we found a very ambitious open source project completely laid out on the tiles due to fear of infringement. One thing seems certain: Open source isn't going to be putting the lawyers out of business any time soon.

The concept of "open source" software was first put forward about 20 years ago by computer programmer Richard Stallman. It began as a philosophical notion that software should be distributed in a form that allows it to be modified by its users.

XGL - An Xserver framework based on OpenGL

Filed under
Software

Now a days, you see a lot of excitement over XGL - the X server architecture layered on top of OpenGL. What this means is that you can see a flurry of activity on the desktop front, including special effects which would put even the upcoming Microsoft Vista OS to shame.
