Speaking of Linux and the spirit of open source

http://blogs.cnet.com

It's almost shameful how paltry Novell's understanding of open source is. I don't say this to denigrate anyone personally, but when I read things like this from Groklaw I just can't understand how Novell manages to say "open source" with a straight face.

Open-source mechanics: Marketing through community segmentation

http://blogs.cnet.com

Hal Steger and Alberto Onetti - both of mobile open-source leader Funambol - discuss open-source marketing in the Enterprise Open Source Journal.

GNU/Linux distro for women? Why not?

http://www.linux.com

On various women's mailing lists, a subscriber has raised the idea of a distribution developed "for and by women." So far, the idea has met with a cool reception. It might even be a troll. However, if such a distro ever gets underway, it would be very much in the spirit of the community, and might give more women the background and confidence to reduce the gender gap in free software.

Is Linux innovative?

http://blogs.zdnet.com

When you ask google for innovations in Linux what you get is rather disappointing - on the first page there’s somebody’s rather uninformed attack on Linux as lacking innovation, some PR bumbf, and five separate references to a joint IBM/Red Hat press release entitled “IBM, Red Hat Announce New Development Innovations in Linux Kernels”.

http://kmandla.wordpress.com

When the final bell tolls and Microsoft is forced to confront the Linux tidal wave (instead of playing its current game of misinformation and attrition) there will be one Achilles heel that the Redmond contingent can take advantage of: Choice. Simply remind the average Linux user that they have a choice on any issue, and a frenzy of infighting erupts.
