/home/liquidat: While aKademy 2007 took place Mandriva used the advantage to highlight their involvement with the Nepomuk-KDE project. The press release drew a line between the Nepomuk-KDE project and the article “As we may think” from Vannevar Bush. That was indeed a nice PR move.

Filed under
Linux

Legal Technology Blog: It seems that every year there are claims by some industry pundits that this is the “Year of Linux.” Obviously, they have been wrong to date. However, a couple things have happened recently that have led me to believe that, even if not in 2007, then by the end of the decade, Linux will have its year.
