Birmingham Drops Open Source Initiative

Slashdot Linux - Mon, 2006-11-20 12:50
eldavojohn writes "Birmingham, England put a stop to a half million pound project to put Linux and open source applications on library access PCs across the city. From the article, 'The council planned to roll out Linux software and applications on 1,500 desktops in libraries across the city, but in the end went no further than a 200-desktop project. Several industry watchers have voiced their concerns about the project, particularly around the number of PCs rolled out. Birmingham's expenditure averaged over 2,500 pounds per PC.' Why did they stop after 200 PCs? Because they claimed with Windows, the project would have been 100,000 pounds cheaper. One may wonder if they paid for initial training of their workforce making the first 200 more expensive than the rest but the article does not say whether or not this occurred."

Jorge Castro: Wii!

Planet Ubuntu - Mon, 2006-11-20 12:29

Aaron is a truly awesome friend. The phone conversation is as follows:

aaron: So dude I waited in line with Matt to get a Wii and since we live together I don't see a reason to own one, so I picked one up for you since I was there anyway and I know you wanted one.
me: Wait a minute, you bought me a Wii?
aaron: Yep.
me: Whoa ... that's totally awesome, but I'm strapped for cash right now, since I spent way too much money at UDS, but I'll buy it from you for sure at the end of the month.
aaron: I know you're good for it, pay me back whenever, I'm going to come drop it off at your work right now.
me: *faints*

And now I hold a Wii box in my hands. So yes, friend of the year goes to Aaron! And now to sneak out of here before Lumbergh comes around ...

Benjamin Mako Hill: Hard Work

Planet Ubuntu - Mon, 2006-11-20 12:16

Our ice cream was out of the freezer a bit too long and got soft. When I went to extract it from its container, the ease with which I could scoop it led me to spoon out two or three times what I might normally have served myself.

It's interesting to consider that perhaps my thinness is due at least in part to my laziness and frugality in obtaining food.

A Closer Look At Oracle's (Legal) Linux

Slashdot Linux - Mon, 2006-11-20 10:20
A reader wrote to us with Matt Asay's Infoworld piece digging into the legal background of Oracle's indemnification offerings for Linux. Turns out, things are not quite so rosy as PR would make it seem. I know, I know...suprise all around. You can read Oracle's FAQ about it, but some of the tastier bits are that the indemnification covers *just* the kernel, and that whole thing about damage limits? Read what Matt has to say:'The indemnification is not in any way limited to the amount of money a customer has paid Oracle. Apparently, Oracle's legal department missed the memo on this one. If you read Section J of the agreement (Limitation of Liability), you'll note that while Oracle offers unlimited indemnification for consequential damages related to an infringement claim (and that only for the one package, the Linux kernel), it caps all other damages at the amount you pay to Oracle.'

Quim Gil: Time-consuming social software

Planet Ubuntu - Mon, 2006-11-20 09:14

I'm slowly diving into social web-based software, after months (years?) of psychological resistance comparable only to that resistance to cookies some of us had in the 90s. Like happened with the cookies, those P2P lovers that criticized more web-based social software are the ones that are getting them in more, bigger loads now. My concerns about ownership and control are still there, but anyway.

I spent a lot of time in Orkut when it appeared, it was funny until it got like going nowhere - will Google eventually resurrect it with a unique add on to my e-life? I have used LinkedIn these months that I have been looking for job, I wonder if I'll keep using when I find one. Last.fm is different, is just making me a happy listener again and I wonder how this good sounded feelings could stop.

Then I'm spending lost minutes in del.icio.us, technorati and digg, although each space would require hours of my spare (?) time in order to get something like structured and useful, decent. Also, I still don't see clearly the boundaries of use / utility between them. I'm sure people having used them for a while have a clearer picture in mind, to me it's still not obvious - I reckon.

The next step will probably be the pictures thing (Flickr, Picasa, both? What is people doing?) Synchronization with local files is here a must... I think today. I'm also seeing how most of my mates are moving their blogs / personal websites from self-administered CMSs to the blogging spaces out there like Livejournal. I'm still somewhat skeptical here, although I have my hesitation every time my site goes down for a weekend...

Oh, and I'm waiting the geolocation stuff to impregnate all the services mentioned above. And I'm not even mentioning collaborative projects like the old dmoz.org (where I spent ages volunteering), wikipedia, etc.

And now the question: who has time to keep all these spaces updated, useful and nice-looking? If it's you, how do you have also the time to read this blog post? Please, help me understanding the XXIth Century, feel free to list the social-whatever spaces you are using on a regularly basis - and why (if you have the time to explain in 2 lines). Thank you!
