Brazilian state struggles to write free software license

One of the aims in the drafting of the third version of the GNU General Public License (GPL) is to internationalize the language to make it easier to translate. Those who doubt the need for this effort only need to look at the efforts to write an alternative free license in the Brazilian state of Paraná to change their minds. Despite the good intentions of its creators, the alternative license has been labeled as non-free by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and its Latin American counterpart, the FSFLA, and is currently being re-written under some protest -- all of which might have been avoided or minimized had an internationalized version of the GPL been available.

Running Ubuntu Linux on Acer Tablet Notebooks Part I

I want to share the experience I gained from the switch over to Ubuntu Linux a few months ago. It might be of some help to other people looking for a superb alternative to Windows. Even though the new Windows Vista OS is being released, some people might not want to use this upgrade. There are numerous unbiased reasons not to upgrade, including the fact that Vista is extremely demanding on resources and will cost an arm and leg to upgrade. On the other hand, Ubuntu is completely free and so are most other Linux programs.

31 Days Before Your CCNA Exam

I love countdowns. The final scenes of the original "Back to the Future" and "Back to the Future III" films when Marty and Doc are racing against time to get the DeLoren up to eighty-eight miles per hour are still exciting to me. Of course, I'm just in the audience and can enjoy the dynamic tension (even knowing how it turns out) without worrying about failure.

A New Linux Certification: Ubuntu Certified Professional

Portrait: Rafe Levien, font-designer and free software contributor

Rafe Levien sees himself as one of a small but growing collection of people working to reconcile the free software and typographic communities.
