Remembering Progeny

Two weeks ago, I heard that Progeny Linux Systems of Indianapolis had closed its doors for the last time. The end was a long-time coming – in fact, six years longer than I predicted. All the same, I paused last week for a bit of nostalgia. Working for the company in 2000-01 gave me my first sense of my potential and gave me a sense of self-worth at a time when I badly needed it.

FSF launch

In its ongoing battle against software patents, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) has launched, a campaign to promote the use of the OGG Vorbis standard for compressed audio. The patent-free and licence-free standard is being punted as an ethically, legally and technically superior audio alternative to the proprietary MP3 format. The most common music format is currently MP3, but what most people don't realise is that any time a distributor sells or gives away music encoded as an MP3, they are responsible for paying a fee to the owners of the MP3 patents. Any software that runs MP3s is also affected by this. The OGG Vorbis specification, being in the public domain, is free from such restrictions and anyone can use the format or write software to use it without needing permission from a patent holder.
