  • Story Type: News Story
By the time Sam Palmisano took over as CEO of IBM in 2002, the technology giant had become the undisputed king of patents. Each year it files more than 3,000 patents, more than any other company. And yet IBM had also begun to present a very different face to the world—as the leading proponent of so-called open-source software, a communal body of code that individuals and companies develop at their own expense and then share with each other freely.

OpenSUSE has a How-To for making a SuSE DVD iso from the SuSE CD iso images. This very issue was one of my only complaints about the SuSE OSS distribution which I mentioned in Review: SuSE 10.0 OSS Install. Needless to say I was ecstatic about the possibility of converting the CDs to just one DVD. This will make future installations so much easier.

Linux Nibbles On The Apple

  • LinuxElectrons; By ByteEnable (Posted by tuxchick on Dec 4, 2005 2:21 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial
The only way for Apple to make serious inroads into the Desktop and Server market is to offer the MAC OS-X for all x86 hardware platforms. If you remove MAC OS-X from the equation, you are left with x86 commodity hardware. So the only value add, or premium that Apple commands is what the customer places on MAC OS-X. With Microsoft Vista looming around the corner and Linux constantly being fine tuned, Apple may find itself totally insignficant in the Desktop/Server market by this time next year.

  • from my inbox; By some virusitical spamming parasite (Posted by tuxchick on Dec 3, 2005 7:35 PM EDT)
I tell ya, it's just plain pitiful when them highly-trained, well-dressed FBI agents can't even compose a coherent email. Can't they afford secretaries?

Thou Shalt Work with Hamburg, My Son

One of the most frequent critics that I can hear and read here and there concerning the OpenOffice.org project is that the development of OpenOffice.org is being done entirely by Sun. Worse, but also very frequent comes the (false) assumption that OpenOffice.org is owned by Sun. I would like to describe accurately the relationship of OpenOffice.org with Sun Microsystems and why the critics are in most cases unjustified. Also, I will point out areas that need improvements. These improvements can be worked on with time and if some conditions are met.
