This is the first part of a two-part essay about the revolution that started the Free Software Movement and resulted in the development of the GNU/Linux operating system; while the second part of this essay will examine the evolution of GNU/Linux, or as most people know it, Linux. into the world class alternative to proprietary operating systems such as Macintosh and Windows, that it is today. I won’t be discussing much in the way of major computing projects such as those of NASA or Hollywood so much as the wants, needs, experiences and expectations of both programmers and users of computer software and documentation, particularly as it effects their everyday work environment.

The holiday season is hard upon us. The stress of shopping for loved ones, making travel plans, or preparing for holiday guests is building. If you're starting to feel like you might need a gun to take and to hold a parking place, it might be time for a stress-buster. That's where Blob Wars comes in. No, it's not a new diet. It's a free, fun, frenzied chance to gun down the bad guys and rescue fair maidens. It's also an SDL-based game which runs well on Linux. And the 1.0 release might be here before the new year.

If its manufacturers can guarantee uninterrupted service, Linux could gain traction in the enterprise as a messaging platform within the next two years, according to a recent survey. The survey, undertaken by Osterman Research, said that about a quarter of 95 IT executives it interviewed would either "definitely" or "probably" switch to Linux-based messaging servers within two years.

Wireless Leiden, The Netherlands, has successfully developed new software for the reliable operation of large, wireless networks. These networks should adjust rapidly and automatically to changes in the network such as new or disappearing interlinks.

The nature of open source is that everyone who runs an application has access to the underlying code. Because they can modify the code, many do. The result can be, and often is, a fragmentation of development efforts. This is generally a difficult thing to manage and maintain, but there are tools offered that can help.
On the heels of the well-received Firefox browser comes this open-source alternative e-mail client. Is it an Outlook killer?
A bit overwrought title, but an interesting view of the minority browsers and their impact on internet sites. Focus is mainly on FireFox.

Konqueror's real strength comes from its tight integration into the KDE desktop but that's not all. This amazing program is a file manager par excellence with capabilities that would require a pretty generous article, something I may yet do here. What I want to tell you about right now though is a means by which Konqueror lets you get at information on the Internet with nothing more than a few keystrokes.
"Bill Joy was doing open source when Linus was still in his diapers," McNealy said, referring to Linus Torvalds who developed the open source Linux operating system. "We kick butt with our open source strategy." ... "Can I be a little 'Al Gorish'? Can we say we invented open source? Well that's easier to justify than Al Gore trying to justify his statement that he invented the Internet,"
