GPL expert gives Red Hat the all-clear  View Printable Version 
Thursday, March 10 2011 @ 09:50 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

LinuxWell-known free software activist and GPL expert Bradley Kuhn says Red Hat's recent change of policy with regard to provision of its kernel source appears, on the surface, to be GPL-compliant.

How are Linux drives named beyond drive 26 (/dev/sdz, ..)  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 09 2011 @ 03:57 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

I need to find out because libguestfs is currently limited to 25 disks, and this really needs to be fixed.

GNU/Linux Returns to Walmart  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, January 04 2011 @ 08:10 PM CST
Contributed by: Linegod

LinuxWalmart lost interest in GNU/Linux on netbooks for some reason but welcomes it again on tablets. Funny how that works, eh? Small cheap computers and GNU/Linux go together well, that other OS does not fit and M$ cannot justify tinkering with the market. Chuckle.
