Why EULAs are good for Free Software

Recently I read an article about the new Windows Vista EULA. It's really something else. This agreement brings 'restrictive' to a whole new level, and I think that's good news for Free Software. Windows Vista will only allow you to re-register the software once. Windows Vista will not allow you to run virtualisation unless you buy the expensive professional licenses. Windows Vista will not allow you to publish benchmark figures without following strict Microsoft guidelines. It's amazing.

  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Ubuntu
Which Linux distribution is the easiest to install and use with as little tweaking as possible? On the KDE front, two of the key choices are Kubuntu and Simply Mepis. Yes, I realize that some users consider SuSE to be a player, and that's great, it has some great features.

Concluding the KDE PIM Bug Triage

Last weekend, a second bout of KDE bug triage took place in the #kde-bugs IRC channel on Freenode. This round was dedicated to the KDE PIM module, with key applications Kontact, KMail and KOrganizer.
