However, the change of phrase, combined with the apolitical stance of some sections of the community, has resulted in a loss of focus on the freedoms that Free Software stands for.
Red Hat, world's leading provider of open source solutions, plans to launch Linux operating systems in eight Indian languages including Marathi, Telegu and Malayalam next year, Javed Tapia, Director, Red Hat India, said today.
The importance of an application has less to do with its size or popularity than it does with the importance of the need it fulfills. Recently I needed a font viewer, so I was happy to find FONTpage 0.2, a new font viewing utility written by Paul Sherman. FONTpage allows you to input text, display it in any of your system fonts, and, if you like, create a PNG image of the text. I found it handy for creating Web site logos.
The enterprise is about open source. Open source is about the enterprise. Its business value is unrivaled. Okay, okay, we get that.

It's been a while since the last update on the Open Graphics Project, so I've put together this article to fill in the community on what's been happening, what's going to happen, and how we can make what happens happen faster. Since the last update, a number of things have been going on, some more slowly than others. Although we're not too far off the Gantt chart, it is nevertheless frustrating for us to find the time to work on some things. For a hardware project that's being done in our spare time, though, things are going rather well, and there's a very strong likelihood that you'll see real hardware for sale on our web site before the year is out.
