The Linux experiment, part 3

As you can see, my experimentation with Linux is not quite over. After writing last week’s column about my troubles installing Skype for Linux, I got an email from a Linux user who knew how to fix the problem. Interestingly, the online version of my column posted by Whistler Question each week ( was added to a Linux User’s Group (or LUG), and I got no fewer than seven responses in the two days after publication, all different, on how to fix the problem.

[ED: Here is a salient quote: "I find it very interesting that there is such a fervent and dedicated community of Linux users who want to help each other." Who was it that said LUGs were so yesterday. I hope I never see that day. - HC]

COMRADES! GPLv3 is here!

The new general public licence has arrived. Paul Furber celebrates the Great Leap Forward of 2006.. "As you are aware from your compulsory weekly education classes, the old general public licence has resisted all attempts to overcome it. Many have tried. All have failed. Millions of companies have gone bankrupt trying to make money from it and over 100 governments have collapsed trying to oppose it -- which is, of course, just as we intended."

Linux Advocacy…A Fool’s Errand or a Mission of Mercy?

  •; By helios (Posted by helios on Mar 11, 2006 4:41 PM EDT)
I also learned that people were not near as computer stupid as I had assigned them to be. While the Windows users just accepted the errors and mistakes, the Linux users were digging in the forums and wikis, trying to understand their new computers.

Time to stick a fork in the GIMP?

Some people like the GIMP, the open source community's answer to Adobe Photoshop, but a recent survey by Novell showed that Photoshop is one of the top three applications Linux users want ported to their platform, which indicates the GIMP may not be meeting the needs of Linux users. Designers' efforts to improve the GIMP have failed in the past. Maybe now is the time for a more radical approach.

Why LUGs matter

Virtually the same day I read Joe Barr's article "Do LUGs still matter?" I received an email message saying that someone was setting up a new Linux user group (LUG) in my hometown. I attended the first couple of meetings of this group with Joe's article in mind, and with the perspective of a free software advocate, not a Linux or open source advocate. The experience made me realize LUGs do still matter, perhaps more than ever, although for different reasons than they once did.

Is Google About To Buy Sun Microsystems?

  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Sun
Daniel M Harrison's take on what is really going on with Google and Sun.. "Anyone who thinks Google can continue its phenomenal growth without a platform to combine hardware, storage, StarOffice, JAVA, and Solaris ought to think again - the combinations are the only competitive advantage that can enable them to trade at a P/E of 100 - and perhaps way above." [Ed: Google and Sun, one company? It sounds like two Ogres trying to tap dance to me. - sharkscott]
