The professionalisation of free software
,----[ Quote ]
| The structures described above were among coders, and represent the creation
| of an organisational chart among them. What we have seen more recently is
| something rather different: the rise of professional managers who are not
| generally programmers, to oversee the day-to-day running and future
| development of the larger projects. The first instance was Mitchell Baker at
| the Mozilla Corporation in 2003, and Stormy Peters at the GNOME Foundation
| last year.
Web browser interoperability: FSFE welcomes EC's decision and offers support
,----[ Quote ]
| On the 16th of January the European Commission DG Competition reported that
| it had issued a statement of objections regarding Microsoft's tying of
| Internet Explorer (IE) to the Windows Operating System product family. This
| action builds on a complaint originally submitted by Opera, a European
| company involved in web browser development.
| Free Software Foundation Europe welcomes the European Commission's decision
| and offers its support in the coming anti-trust investigation. As stated
| previously in a letter to the European Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes,
| anti-competitive behaviour is unacceptable, whether it occurs as 'tying'
| products with dominant market segments, or in circumventing standards and
| fair access.
