Thanks!A question to Intel
2005-11-29T10:54:52+01:00charlesFollowing up the Microsoft announcement about their so-called new open file formats for office documents, I couldn&#039;t help but notice that Intel was part of the consortium backing the Microsoft initiative. Here&#039;s why it is suprizing at first glance: Intel was also part of the OpenDocument meeting in Armonk, New York, and it is also very close to contributing code to OpenOffice.org .
The rationale behind the decision of Intel to back Microsoft is clear if ...A recognition by ommission
2005-11-26T11:57:46+01:00charlesUPDATE: Here&#039;s the OpenOffice.org&#039;s official press release on the topic.
By announcing that its new format would be standardized, open, and XML based, Microsoft has also announced to the world that it had lost the initiative in the Office wars.
Microsoft latest move is the evidence that OpenOffice.org, and the OpenDocument Format are leading the way when it comes to innovation in the Office technology and the vendor-independant data formats. So thank you...OpenDocument for LaTeX
2005-11-18T12:45:06+01:00tbuitenhI love LaTeX for many reasons. It lets me focus on document structure instead of markup. It&#039;s great for mathematical formulas. I can easily use it together with whatever happens to be my favorite version management system at the time, because just like program source code, TeX files are plain text. And last but not least it is very easy to have a program write a LaTeX document. If my program does some complicated math, I even use it for debug output!
When I publi...Shortest blog entry about DRM ever

2005-11-07T20:49:34+01:00LiberviscoThis story asks a question: Is open source a bubble ready to burst?
It concludes in a rather positive light and I would agree that open source, that is Free Software investments aren't forming a "bubble ready to burst".
What article mentions as one of the most crucial things a Free Software business startup has to have is *community*. But it sounds like it's being put out as a requirement not existant in the proprietary business world, which is in my ...David Blunkett - ANd hes done it again
2005-11-02T19:41:59+01:00skryeYet again, David Blunkett has managed to make a mockery of of his position in high office and the &#039;faith&#039; Tony Blair has put in him. He has been forced to resign after completely disregarding ministerial rules by failing to consult with and gain the approval of the ministry before accepting a directorship in a DNA testing company. He said that it was an &#039;error in judgement&#039; on his part, though I think he would have considered it less of...the Jedi/GNU Project
2005-11-01T20:43:26+01:00lakerdonaldHello all. I&#039;m back from my blogging hiatus.
Kinda Jedi Linux news...kinda just general F/OSS news. I have officially moved the former Jedi GNU/Linux project, along with force-get and fs-make to a new endeavor known as the Jedi/GNU Project.
To this end, the name of Jedi GNU/Linux is now Jedi/GNU Linux, to fit the name of the Jedi/GNU Project.
The Jedi/GNU Project aims to provide a stable userland that fills in the gaps that the GNU Project has left.
