linuxworld.com: Open-source software developers are seeing a lot of interest in their products in Europe -- but it's North American companies that are opening their checkbooks, said speakers at Paris Capitale du Libre, a conference organized by the Federation of Open Source Software Industry.
Also: Commercial Open Source in Europe Verses the US
colin.guthr.ie: 2008.1 went well and the decision to default to using PulseAudio turned out to be pretty good all in all. I made it my mission to ensure that we had as smooth as possible an integration and have continued to follow up as many bug reports as my time permits. Anyway, what about 2009?
arstechnica.com: The open source GNOME desktop environment got a big boost today with the release of version 2.24. The latest version brings some new applications and a wide range of improvements for developers and end users. This is also the first version of GNOME to be released with an accompanying mobile development platform.
jonobacon.org: Today we launched the beta of our Ubuntu Upstream Report. Jorge has more details on how upstreams and Ubuntu contributors can make use of the report, but I wanted to spend a few moments telling the story behind the report.
penguinway.net: Alpha 6 is the last alpha release of Xubuntu Intrepid Ibex 8.10. I wanted to give it a try on my Dell Inspiron 1150 notebook to see how far it had come along.
linux.com: The students of a missionary school in Pakistan, from first graders to graduates, have become enthusiast Edubuntu users thanks to the cooperation between their administrator and an Italian LUG.
Jim Zemlin: Yesterday, Linux Foundation member IBM announced its adoption of a new corporate policy that will govern its global participation in the standards development process. The Linux Foundation applauds this action, and supports IBM’s call for raising the bar in the standards development process.
desktoplinux.com/: Good OS (gOS) has achieved a new major release of its Ubuntu-based operating system. Targeting low-powered netbooks, gOS 3.0 integrates closely with Google Gadgets, as well as with Google Mail, Calendar, Reader, News, Applications, and so on.
blogs.computerworld: Microsoft encourages us to think of Linux, when we think of it as all, as an also-ran operating systems for nerds. The last thing Microsoft wants us to think about is that there are some spaces where Microsoft is a distant number two and Linux is on top.
blogs.zdnet.com: The Fedora Project is celebrating its fifth birthday today. Congrats, Fedora! It seems like just yesterday I was covering the first release to see how (or if) Fedora would distinguish itself from Red Hat Linux.
freesoftwaremagazine.com: Firefox is a great browser. However, it’s a tad on the bloated side (even though the new version are definitely better!). Also, Firefox is focused on cross-platform compatibility. That’s great, but sometimes that also means that Firefox won’t be able to take advantage of Gnome-specific features, including the unified look, better language support, and HIG-compliant settings. If you’ve been feeling these Firefox blues as well, Epiphany could be the answer.
venturecake.com: PowerDVD Linux has been around for years. Originally sold only to embedded Linux developers, the software made its way onto the desktop by being included by hardware makers in Dell’s Ubuntu laptops and more recently Asus eeePCs. The software is now finally available to the general Ubuntu-using public via The Ubuntu Store.
linuxinsider.com: Think of Flock as the social-butterfly cousin of the hard-working Firefox browser. Both spring from the same code base, though Flock has been designed from the ground up with social networking in mind. It taps RSS feeds and makes blogging easier and less time-consuming.
linuxhaxor.net: You have five minutes and ten sentences to explain Linux to a complete newbie, without the geekery mumbo jumbo. What would you say? Here is my take:
newsweek.com: Last year I was meeting with the CEO of a PC company who offered to give me a demo of his company's gorgeous new top-of- the-line notebook loaded with Windows Vista. He flipped open the laptop, pressed the power button, and … nothing. We waited. And waited. It was excruciating.
infoworld.com: Linux is enjoying growth, with a contingent of devotees too large to be called a cult following at this point. Solaris, meanwhile, has thrived as a longstanding, primary Unix platform geared to enterprises. But with Linux the object of all the buzz in the industry, can Sun's rival Solaris Unix OS hang on, or is it destined to be displaced by Linux altogether?
ostatic.com: Gentoo Linux has had a rough time of it the last few years. Matt Asay at CNET suspects Ubuntu's rising star is responsible. Having used both distributions extensively, and strongly preferring one, I agree with Asay. However, an average Gentoo user is usually not asking the same from his machine as a typical Ubuntu user.
debiantoday.com: Debian along with most Linux distributions are based on free and open source software (FOSS). Debian specifically is a front runner in the freedom game. FOSS is great, I love it. As much as I love FOSS I value my freedom of choice in what I do on my computer and in my daily life much more than free software.
seekingalpha.com: The open source blogosphere is up in arms again with its typical “don’t-let-the-facts-get-in-the-way” postings against Microsoft (MSFT). This time Microsoft’s co-conspirators are the Stanford and Harvard business schools because two of their professors did a “study (of) how a commercial firm competes with a free open source product.
raiden.net: Bloatware: the state of a program in which the software becomes so large, inefficient and cumbersome that it's more of a pain to use than a joy. And despite all that people in the FOSS community claim about open source software, FOSS bloatware is a comin', and there's nothing you can do about it. Or is there?
