Why the World Needs OpenStreetMap  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 05 2014 @ 10:46 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceEvery time I tell someone about OpenStreetMap, they inevitably ask “Why not use Google Maps?”. From a practical standpoint, it’s a reasonable question, but ultimately this is not just a matter of practicality, but of what kind of society we want to live in. I discussed this topic in a 2008 talk on OpenStreetMap I gave at the first MappingDC meeting. Here are many of same concepts, but expanded.

Linux Foundation Chief: 'You Are an Idiot' If You Don't Give Back to Open Source  View Printable Version 
Saturday, May 25 2013 @ 09:16 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceLinux is the granddaddy of all open source projects, the blueprint for the decentralized development processes. And some of those who use the Linux code, free for the taking, don't give back in equal measure. Still, the time for cajoling those users -- even commercial projects like Ubuntu leader Canonical -- into participating is over, says Jim Zemlin, executive director of the nonprofit Linux Foundation.

Open source equals software freedom, not free software  View Printable Version 
Monday, October 08 2012 @ 07:32 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceVivek Ranadive, CEO of Tibco, is one of the industry's big thinkers, complete with a profile in Esquire. So why would a smart guy like him dismiss open source as "fool's gold"? And why do some software vendors believe they can justify "FRAND terms" on software standards and permit patented capabilities to be inserted into software standards?

Can open source save RIM?  View Printable Version 
Sunday, February 26 2012 @ 06:38 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceDon't expect RIM to open source its entire operating system, or its radio stack. But the original smartphone company is gambling its future success on open source, and it has an expert on board to help. Mary Branscombe asked Senior Technical Director for Open Software, Eduardo Pelegri Llopart, where open source fits in at RIM.

Is Android really free software?  View Printable Version 
Monday, September 19 2011 @ 07:21 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceTo what extent does Android respect the freedom of its users? For a computer user that values freedom, that is the most important question to ask about any software system.

In the free/libre software movement, we develop software that respects users' freedom, so we and you can escape from software that doesn't. By contrast, the idea of "open source" focuses on how to develop code; it is a different current of thought whose principal value is code quality rather than freedom.Thus, the concern here is not whether Android is "open", but whether it allows users to be free.

Open-Source Web-Sites, Memories Of The Past  View Printable Version 
Monday, April 18 2011 @ 10:38 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceThe forum discussion surrounding TransGaming's GameTree Linux and Cedega Technology continues, with some Linux gamers regretting that they ever even supported TransGaming. One user also brings up the past from when -- back in 2000~2001 -- TransGaming had pledged to open up their code-base once they reached 20,000 subscribers. They believed in an open-source philosophy at that time, but they never ended up opening up their code once hitting that milestone. Even though Cedega as we know it is now dead, this former fork of the X11-licensed Wine is still closed.

Open Source has won precisely because we no longer notice it  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, November 23 2010 @ 04:46 CST
Contributed by: Linegod

Open SourceOpen source has won. Oh, how time flies. When I started writing in Database in May 2003, my first column was about how the ICT Ministry had got the budget PC programme all wrong. ICT Minister Surapong had announced his great success at negotiating the inclusion of Windows XP and Office XP at just 1,500 baht, a 90 percent discount. He saw it as success. I saw it as capitulation.
