Freedoms are easily lost if you don't cherish them, even in the modern world of software, warns Gervase Markham

The Open Source term has been a great success - its unambiguous nature has appealed to journalists who want to avoid terminological confusion when writing about the community's recent achievements, such as the Firefox web browser or the Open Office.org office suite. 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.

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.

Hardware: Open Graphics Project Status Update

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.

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. Especially if we can get help on a few things from the community. Read on for details.
