8 Linux Apps to Save You Money While the Country Falls Apart


The Linux Credit Card

,----[ Quote ]
| Who wouldn’t want a credit card with the Tux penguin on it? So far the 
| non-profit organization behind the card, Linux Fund, has donated 500,000 to 
| the open source community. I was really pleased to see one of their support 
| projects was LiVES. Video editing is one of the weak spots in Linux so it is 
| good to see it getting some financial support.    



Open Source Smackdown - live or die in the new economy, it all has an OSS angle

,----[ Quote ]
| Last thoughts on OSS looking forward: In reality, OSS has been enabled by the
| commoditization of extremely complex technology. Cutting edge technology and
| the development of cutting edge technology is accessible to practically
| anyone. So how do you create your company's value in that market if you're
| making heavy use of OSS technology, vs. simply becoming a packager or
| integrator of OSS? Second, how does the disruption caused by an OSS
| marketplace require adaptation from a business that grew up with totally
| closed, protected IP? The small and large companies identified above each
| have interesting answers to those questions.


Red Hat: Crisis to boost open source

,----[ Quote ]
| The global economic crisis would provide a boost for open source software,
| Red Hat chief executive Jim Whitehurst claimed during a visit to Sydney this
| week.
| Whitehurst, who stopped over down under as part of a tour of the Asia-Pacific
| region, said in an interview with ZDNet Asia's sister site ZDNet Australia
| that the crisis would cause companies to consolidate their technology
| infrastructure and reduce spending.


No Recession at Red Hat

,----[ Quote ]
| It is flattering to be mentioned, Mr. Whitehurst said, but he noted that
| corporate customers and the industry benefit from what he called Red
| Hat’s “Switzerland status” — not being a province of one of the major powers
| in the technology industry.
