[News] In E-Reader Arena, It's Just Linux vs Linux vs Linux
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Lessons for Nook from Zune ,----[ Quote ] | 1. The Kindle isn't a monopoly | The Kindle, on which I was unduly harsh when | it first appeared, has been the most popular | e-reader. But it does not yet have the | massive market presence that the iPod did by | the time the first Zunes came out. (Amazon | has not released sales numbers, but | TechCrunch estimates it somewhere north of a | million.) This matters because lending and | borrowing are only attractive if you believe | there will be other people near by you whose | taste you trust to borrow from. | | The tide was clearly against the Zune by the | time it came out, which did not give | consumers confidence that there would be | other Zune users to get music from. In that | case, it was just safer to stick with the | leader, the iPod. `---- http://news.cnet.com/8301-13641_3-10384838-44.html Recent: OpenInkpot: free software for e-book readers ,----[ Quote ] | OpenInkpot (or OI) intends to be a full alternative, | free software stack for e-ink based readers.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 The Evolution of Collaborative Innovation ,----[ Quote ] | In those pre-Web 2.0 days, the community | concept behind Linux and open source in | general was mystifying to many. They were | surprised that IBM had so strongly embraced | Linux and were wondering what its relevance | would be to the world of business. We spent a | lot of time explaining that we were supporting | Linux because it was an excellent operating | system that ran on every single hardware | platforms regardless of vendor or | architecture, and would thus facilitate the | integration of systems, applications and | information over the Internet. | | A number of companies were also concerned | about using software developed by an open, | distributed community, as opposed to a single | vendor, as was typically the case. So, we | further explained that the open community | developing Linux included some of the top | programmers and computer scientists around the | world. A number of IBM employees were already | involved with this community, and several more | would now be joining it as part of our new IBM | Linux Technology Center. In any event, IBM | and its partners would provide support for the | Linux-based offerings we sold regardless of | how they were developed. `---- http://blog.irvingwb.com/blog/2009/12/the-evolution-of-collaborative-innovation.html Recent: IBM supports Tunisian ICT sector ,----[Quote ] | During a w...

[News] Linux Today's Editor on What Makes a Perfect GNU/Linux Desktop
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Editor's Note: the Quest for the Perfect Desktop Linux ,----[ Quote ] | Naturally, the perfect Linux is different for | every user. I want something that Terry can use | without having vexing little problems cropping | up all the time. It is enough work learning to | use applications like Audacity, Ardour, Digikam, | and OpenOffice without also having to babysit a | colicky Linux. It seems to me that the "noob- | friendly" distros like Ubuntu, Mandriva, and | openSUSE start out great, but the more you use | them the more weird little glitches they | exhibit. I want something with a reasonable | degree of sanity, and something I can fix | without having to untangle mare's nests of | distro-specific "improvements." | | These are my criteria for the perfect desktop | Linux distro: | | * Rolling releases and continual upgrades. I | think fresh installs with new releases are | silly and should be done only when it's | absolutely necessary, like a system that is | hopelessly messed-up.
