IBM swung a haymaker at SCO on Sept. 25. The corporate giant asked the U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City, Utah for summary judgment against all of SCO's claims. The SCO vs. IBM case is over three years old. Although The SCO Group Inc. has had little success in persuading the court or the buying public that IBM did indeed take SCO's Unix intellectual property and place it within Linux, the company has stayed its course.
Software as a service (SaaS) has been one of the most widely talked about topics in IT circles over the last few years for a number of reasons. Rightly, one of these reasons has been the benefits SaaS can deliver to businesses; another has been the hard work of some of the leading proponents of this delivery model in getting the message out there.
Non-patentable shared "open energy technology" has the potential to have a profound impact on the reduction of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, in the same way that open source software has changed computers and the Internet.

There's no shortage of messaging and collaboration suites trying to unseat Microsoft Exchange, but many of the suites are still playing catch-up with Microsoft in terms of features.

With arguments about changes to the GNU General Public License (GPL) still sizzling, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) has released a discussion draft of the new version of the GNU Free Documentation License (FDL). Many of the changes to the FDL mirror those to the GPL, including increased clarity of language and changes in wording to make internationalization clearer. In addition, the draft expands the license to make it suitable for audio and video, defines fair use, and introduces the Simpler Free Documentation License (SFDL), which is presented as a more straightforward alternative to the FDL. However, it seems questionable whether these changes will be enough to silence previous criticisms.
Are you in control over your own digital life? It just isn't fun to have someone else tell you what you can or can't do with your own property, from your computer to the music you bought.

Jeremy Utley has announced the release of Cross Linux From Scratch (CLFS) 1.0.0, a book that teaches how to make a cross-compiler and the necessary tools to build a basic system on a different architecture: "The CLFS Development team is pleased to announce the final release of CLFS 1.0.0, code-name 'Bender'. This release features Glibc 2.4, GCC 4.1.1, Binutils 2.17, and supports the x86, x86-64, SPARC, PowerPC, PPC64, MIPS, MIPS64, and Alpha, including multilib on those architectures that support it. Cross-building is also supported, even from non-Linux host systems such as Solaris, *BSD, and OS X."
