http://www.linuxfoundation.org

Last week, David Coursey reported that Microsoft entertainment and devices boss Robbie Bach made the prediction in an analyst briefing that Linux on mobile will lose. Why?

Web code is already open - why not make it free as well

http://www.freesoftwaremagazine.com

Oh dear. After the debacle with Microsoft Poland's apparent racist photoshopping, Microsoft China went and got the company in hot water for allegedly "stealing" code. Yes you read that right: Microsoft and wholesale "theft" of code from another website. Of course it's not "theft" it's copyright infringement but tomayto/tomarto.

http://ebb.org

By the end of 2004, I'd been running Debian ‘testing’ on my laptop since around early 2003, but after 6-8 months of woody, I was backporting far too much and I couldn't spare the time for upkeep. At just about that time, a thing called ‘warty’ was released.

Selling GPL Exceptions isn't Exceptional

http://www.linux-magazine.com
