Another Kind of Freedom

http://elevenislouder.blogspot.com

It seems as if most people are for OpenSource but against any other form of distribution/development. For example, Microsoft maintains ownership of the software that they sell on store shelves. No one owns a copy of Windows except for Microsoft.

Ubuntu Switch to Yahoo. Trouble in Paradise?

http://www.buntfu.com

This situation really doesn't sit right with me. I understand that Canonical needs to be creative in acquiring new revenue streams. The stumbling block for me is. Isn't Google using mostly Ubuntu guts/code under the hood of its upcoming Chrome OS?

http://www.buntfu.com

Reading between the lines of this article I found it saying was that the traditional OS is not dead and probably never will be. Regardless how much the industry wants to kill independent computing its users behaviors refuse them to do so. Google announced its decision because it realized that people want to listen to music, read documents and watch movies even when they are not online. Really?
