  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: GNU
After a few months' delay—during which the Free Software Foundation mulled over how to make the world safe for GNU-manity in the face of Microsoft and Novell's patent, collaboration and baby-seal-clubbing accord—there's a new draft of the GNU General Public License out for comment.

Microsoft is Dead

  •; By Paul Graham (Posted by Abe on Apr 7, 2007 1:20 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Microsoft
A few days ago I suddenly realized Microsoft was dead. I was talking to a young startup founder about how Google was different from Yahoo. I said that Yahoo had been warped from the start by their fear of Microsoft. That was why they'd positioned themselves as a "media company" instead of a technology company. Then I looked at his face and realized he didn't understand. It was as if I'd told him how much girls liked Barry Manilow in the mid 80s. Barry who?

Committee A met in a conference call today for the first time since the release of the third draft of the GPLv3. In the interests of privacy and confidentiality, I won't report specific details of the call. I will talk a bit about how my perceptions changed as a result of the conversation. These are the two core ideas I carried away, and I'll leave it to others on the call or representing the FSF or SFLC to correct any misperceptions.

A "Microsoft-centric" call center solution provider called Promero worked mostly with proprietary applications, offering them as hosted software-as-a-service products.

Linux on the Apple TV getting started

It's a good thing Apple isn't fighting back against Apple TV hacks, because while we haven't yet seen any hard evidence that Linux on the Apple TV is even as far as is claimed, apparently some industrious hackers have already made some real progress in shoehorning Tux into the minuscule media device. According to the Mactel-Linux wiki, users have managed to capture the ATV's boot loader and run a custom Linux kernel; right now that kernel and the primitive ATV build apparently seem to support WiFi, SpeedStep, and EFI, but there are issues with USB (you're telling us!), and the graphics aren't settled either.

With the release of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn happening in just a matter of days, last month at Phoronix we had presented The Visual History of Ubuntu.

Today we are doing the same for Fedora as we look back upon its history.

What's growing at SUSEroot?

SUSE root is a nice evangelist-type site about Novell's SUSE -- specifically openSUSE, that tries to answer the questions that could be asked by a potential user of this extremely popular distro. Looking at The Distrowatch top 100 distributions, there's Ubuntu at No. 1, followed by openSUSE and Fedora. I'm thinking of trying openSUSE because it's so darn popular, is meant for business use -- and I just want to see how it runs.
