Shocking: Did the W3C Sell Out to Microsoft?

http://www.tomshardware.com

It’s the official HTML5 test that praises IE9's HTML5 features. The W3C has spoken, the IE9 is the best HTML5 browser. But my question is: How credible can the test be, if you discredit it yourself and if you quietly change the results?

Google's Go has been called to go into GCC 4.6

http://www.phoronix.com

Last year one of the many projects introduced by Google was the Go programming language. Do you remember? It's reached a state of being a production-ready language, at least within Google's confines, but this project hasn't received as much attention and interest by the Linux and open-source communities as some of their other work such as VP8 and their new container format.

Fast and striking criticism of WebP by x264 developer

http://x264dev.multimedia.cx

JPEG is a very old lossy image format. By today’s standards, it’s awful compression-wise: practically every video format since the days of MPEG-2 has been able to tie or beat JPEG at its own game. The reasons people haven’t switched to something more modern practically always boil down to a simple one -- it’s just not worth the hassle.

FSF responds to Oracle v. Google and the threat of software patents

http://www.fsf.org

As you likely heard on any number of news sites, Oracle has filed suit against Google, claiming that Android infringes some of its Java-related copyrights and patents. Too little information is available about the copyright infringement claim to say much about it yet; we expect we'll learn more as the case proceeds.

There's more to open source than Linux

http://geekybodhi.net

It's important to see open source as a business methodology. No more, no less. It's a way of life for software companies that want to work with others. The "others" could include other companies, and individuals independent of either. Open source software build communities around themselves, and are guarded by licenses.

MeeGo at the crossroads

http://mybroadband.co.za

Oracle suing Google over Java could be a good thing for MeeGo. If any good is to come out of Oracle suing Google over Android, the one to benefit could be MeeGo, the Intel-Nokia joint-venture mobile operating system.

Shuttleworth: Oracle's Java Lawsuit 'An Extremely Unsophisticated Move'

http://itmanagement.earthweb.com

Last week's move by Oracle to sue Google over Java use in the Android open source mobile operating system, may well end up having an impact that effects far more that just Android. And that has some key stakeholders in the open source community concerned.

Oracle vs. Google over Java in Android is only the start.

http://blogs.computerworld.com

I don't think Oracle suing Google over the use of Java in Android has much to do with Android at all. I think it has everything to do with Oracle monetizing Java anyway it can. That spells big trouble for any company or developer who uses Java...
