Hash: SHA1

First big business, now big data

,----[ Quote ]
| To properly assess the state of open-source software in 2009, one would have to 
| gather millions of code commits and project releases. Open source isn't a buzzword 
| or even a type of software; it has become a new way of doing business in software.
| In September, the Linux Foundation released the findings of its “Who Writes 
| Linux” survey. The results found that Linux is seeing contributions from 
| hundreds of thousands of different users, and that pool of contributors 
| is still growing at an encouraging rate, building on over 10 years of 
| consistent evolution and expansion.


VLMC: Free Video Editing Software from VLC Coming Soon [Leaked Pics]

,----[ Quote ]
| The official announcement of VLMC will take 
| place at the VideoLAN dev’days 2009 in 
| December.
| Once the pre-release of VLMC is out, there will 
| be full instructions on how to install it, and 
| we will have all the details. Until then, you 
| can fetch the current working tree using Git:
| git clone git://github.com/VLMC/vlmc.git



Sun Tzu and the London Stock Exchange

,----[ Quote ]
| I read Sun Tzu's The Art of War more than 10
| years ago, and there is one bit of advice that I
| still use daily in my business dealings. It can
| be paraphrased as "when attacking an entrenched
| competitor, you need four times the force. Ten
| times the force is better." Thus, when Red Hat
| was building its enterprise business, I made sure
| that our sales people were focused on customers
| who could immediately measure 2x the performance
| at 1/2 the cost (yielding a 4x performance/cost
| advantage), although 10x performance/cost was
| more advantageous. It seems that Sun Tzu's math
| has been understood by the London Stock Exchange,
| who are seeing a more than 6x improvement in the
| all-important measure of latency, whilst gaining
| an impressive 2x cost advantage. No wonder they
| are switching from a proprietary platform to one
| based on open source software!
