An open source company is one that, as its core revenue-generating business, actively produces, distributes, and sells (or sells services around) software under an OSI-approved license.
peter penz committed a treeview for dolphin to svn today. in more happy news, krunner is getting prettier with transparency on the widgets, pretty buttons and the listview soon to be replaced by the "icon parade".
Fedora 7 test 2 was announced yesterday and since they now put out livecds as well as their install images, I thought I'd take it for a little test drive. Fedora's always been a bit neglected around here, but there are good reasons for that. Honestly, I've never been a big Red Hat fan and Anaconda discriminating against my hard drives didn't help. So, Fedora being delivered in a livecd format gives Tuxmachines a welcomed opportunity to test it.
There is much anger and disappointment in the community this week, regarding the seemingly near-miss of a major U.S. hardware vendor finally announcing that they would pre-install Linux on their machines, only to turn around the next day that they were not pre-installing. Except that's not the way it happened. At all.
What happens when a free and open source software (FOSS) project attempts to introduce compensation for its developers? Because FOSS remains based largely on volunteer work, many worry that payment might demotivate both those who receive it and those who do not. However, community leaders who have observed how payment interacts with the FOSS ethos suggest a more complicated picture.
Novell told investors Friday that preliminary results for the first quarter indicate that the networking software concern swung to a loss. The Waltham, Mass.-based company said it was confident that it remained on track for profitability, but traders and analysts weren't willing to wait around to see if those predictions panned out.
As justification for entries goes, “well, everyone else was doing it” probably isn’t going to win me any prizes, but that’s about the best I can do here. I’ve been assiduously avoiding the subject thus far, but I guess it’s time to jump off this particular bridge. Because, you know, everyone else is doing it.
The GNOME project released version 2.17.92 of its popular Linux desktop on Feb. 28. This is the last unstable bugfix release prior to the 2.18.0 release, set for March 14, a project spokesperson said.
Ted Leung has a thought provoking post titled "Adobe wants to be the Microsoft of the web". From what I've been able to gather, Ted is a big open source advocate, so obviously he has some strong feelings about a platform that seems to be growing. For me, I like knowing that everyone's version of Flash player is exactly the same.
This year’s event focussed on interoperability, the commercialisation of Open Source Software (OSS) technologies and the acceptance of OSS when it comes to running mission critical applications.
If Dell were to create a separate organisation to serve the open source community, one that was not obliged to adopt all the established procedures that have made Dell so successful in the world of proprietary systems, I believe it could tap into the pent-up demand for pre-installed GNU/Linux systems to create a vibrant and profitable new business division.
When the European Commission launched a streaming video service last year which excluded Linux users, large swathes of the open source community became deeply angry. Now, a Surrey local council has shown that open source operating systems can be included in such programmes.
Microsoft's deal with Novell to resell SUSE Linux may be controversial, but it's looking like a boon for Novell. In fact, it's just about the only bright spot the Novell has right now.
Gary Edwards of the Open Document Foundation, a leading member of its technical committee, says Microsoft is playing proprietary games aimed at controlling XML file formats and preventing the Open Document Format from gaining a foothold.
While I tried to gather information about software installation and Linux I also discussed this topic with several people. One argument I found rather strange was based on the statement that there is no Linux OS - but that every distribution is its own operating system. This is something I cannot agree with.
Open source software's preeminent vector graphics package, Inkscape, made a new stable release last month. Inkscape 0.45 packs in new features, speed, and usability enhancements, and offers a tempting look at where the package is headed.
Slashdot.org released on Thursday a new feature designed to give more participation in the selection of articles to its users, who submit links to stories and comments about them to the site.
If you ask any IT manager if they would want an operating system that was ‘guaranteed’ to be available and supporting applications running continuously twenty four hours a day, 365 days a year, then the answer would probably be very simple. However, if you want to measure how much this level of availability is worth to the organisation, then you’ll probably get a very different response.
COR Entertainment LLC announces the release of Alien Arena 2007 version 6.04 today, the latest installment of it's freeware online deathmatch game!
2007 will go down in history as the year Sun Microsystems gave up the reins of the Java platform, releasing it under an open source license to the Java developer community. In this article, Java developer Elliotte Rusty Harold predicts new directions for the Java platform, in everything from scripting to bug fixing to new syntax.
