  • Linux: BitKeeper Licensing Discussion
  • Wednesday, February 16 2005 @ 12:52 AM EST
  • Three years after Linux creator Linus Torvalds began using BitKeeper to manage the Linux kernel source tree, debates have continued to spring up on the Linux kernel mailing list. A BitKeeper press release from nearly a year ago claims that the move has resulted in doubling the pace of Linux kernel development, a claim examined in a later two part interview on NewsForge from last May, including comments from Linus and Larry McVoy. In spite of this significant boost in productivity, there remains a group who vehemently oppose Linus' choice to use BitKeeper. - KernelTrap

  • Low-key leaders are essential to open source success
  • Tuesday, February 15 2005 @ 02:20 PM EST
  • Commentary: Executive personalities have more effect on the software industry than they have on almost any other business segment outside of the entertainment industry.

And that's why they do well." - NewsForge

  • PalmSource's sideways shuffle to Linux
  • Tuesday, February 15 2005 @ 01:05 PM EST

  • Tuesday, February 15 2005 @ 12:44 PM EST
  • Dan Bricklin, the software developer who invented the PC spreadsheet in the '70s, battled Lotus Development Corp. for market share in the '80s, and launched a pen computing startup in the '90s, has taken on one of the thorniest issues for companies this decade: navigating the legal landscape of open-source software. -

  • IBM Chiphopper Throws Platform Doors Open for ISVs
  • Tuesday, February 15 2005 @ 12:19 PM EST
  • One of Linux' greatest strengths has always been the ability to place the kernel and much of the attendant operating system on many different platforms. Proponents of Linux will often point to this capability as a selling point. Opponents will also point to the same thing and argue that while in theory such capabilities are all well and good, actually implementing software solutions for many platforms is a detriment against developing for Linux. - LinuxPlanet

  • Linux Thais up more support
  • Monday, February 14 2005 @ 04:47 AM EST
