Who’s Speaking at this year’s CollabSummit?

The Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit is the only conference designed to enhance collaboration between the Linux community, industry, end users and ISVs. Instead of the silo-ed developer conferences or trade shows that fill up the year’s calendar, we gather leaders from each of these communities together to share knowledge, decide the course of action and accelerate the Linux platform.

How to Evaluate Open Source Projects?

If you’re in the open source world, you probably don’t need a lot of convincing about the high quality software that results from the open source development model.  Mass collaboration coupled with vociferous peer review makes for better code and products. It just does.  No matter how much of a monopoly might exist today, this collaboration cannot be duplicated within the proprietary software model.

Congratulations to IBM and Red Hat on their 10th Anniversary

I’ve written on Red Hat before and the confidence I feel in their operational strengths. It is one of the best run companies I’ve seen. Red Hat’s leadership in the Linux space and its steadfast belief in open source software has been a key factor in Linux adoption in the enterprise. This year’s numbers with Linux capturing greater than 20% of server shipments, a major success, are due in large part to Red Hat’s competitiveness and hard work.

Getting older...

Tove was cleaning out some random stuff, and came upon this Japanese model that I had bought years ago and never built up. So she told me to build it (with the perhaps implied threat that if I didn't, she'd throw it out).

Linux Provides Steady IT Foundation for Banks in a Tough Economic Climate

Times are tough in the banking industry. According to the AP, 100,000 bank employees have been laid off over the past two years.

Fantastic!

This may be a shock to everybody, but I have to admit that I'm not generally a huge fan of most Microsoft software ("No, really, Linus? Tell us more!").

But I may have to admit that I was wrong.

No, I'm not talking about Windows 7. I'm talking about Songsmith, which is clearly a true work of genius. Yes, yes, the commercials are painfully cheesy, but when used right the end result is undeniably art.

Windows Kicks Linux to the Curb? You’ve got to be kidding.

As a blogger myself I can appreciate a catchy headline as much as the next guy, but this one is insane. ZDNet’s Robin Harris is declaring an early victory in the netbook market with his story, “Windows Kicks Linux to the Curb.”
