Reality Check: Making mobile Linux work 

,----[ Quote ]
| The variety of Linux-oriented initiatives 
| and activities in the mobile industry, 
| including the recent announcement from 
| Nokia and Intel regarding the formation of 
| MeeGo, clearly reaffirms the fact that 
| Linux will be the technology that underpins 
| a large proportion of next-generation 
| mobile devices. In fact, leading analyst 
| firms predict that between 30-40% of 
| smartphones shipped will be based on Linux 
| by 2015. This column addresses a few key 
| issues pertaining to this growth in mobile 
| Linux including the need for consolidation 
| at the core level of the mobile software 
| stack, the choice of Linux as the 
| technology that will be common across a 
| large array of mobile devices of various 
| form factors and the business models around 
| mobile Linux.

Android operating system to power a smarter Telstra phone
 
,----[ Quote ]
| MOBILE phones powered by Google's Android 
| open-source operating system have been 
| scarce in Australia until now.
| 
| Occasionally, models from Taiwan's HTC have 
| bobbed up on Optus and Vodafone, but they 
| have failed to make much impression on a 
| smartphone market dominated by BlackBerry 
| and iPhone.
| 
| That may change with a coming explosion of 
| new models, featuring the much improved 
| Android 2.1 version of the OS.

Major Aussie ISP Telstra BigPond shafts open source OpenOffice

,----[ Quote ]
| Australia’s largest Internet service provider Telstra BigPond has removed the 
| free open source office suite OpenOffice from its unmetered file download 
| area following the launch of its own, free, hosted, office application, 
| BigPond Office.   
| 
| [...]
| 
| Our reader was outraged by Telstra’s move, which he sees as an attack on the 
| open source software movement. 
| 
| “The principle of the matter upsets me,” he said. “The fact that BigPond has 
| removed previously allowed open source software is un-ethical. They are 
| discriminating against me, even though I pay the same as other customers.  
| They are attacking the Free Software movement.”

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remind me of myself: practical, freedom-loving, anti-corporate. Here in COLA however they remind me of monkeys or spoiled brats or worse, corporate sysadmins. My Linux is not your Linux. It is the human Linux that acknowledges that Linux involves human work to create, that although it is free you are not entitled to it, that although it is created in large part by volunteers, they deserve to be paid for their gifts with at least gratitude. And that monkeys and self-entitled brats and sysadmins never thank anyone. yarmfelder@yahoo.com writes: > To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy!

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up.
