| Advantages of Linux
| * The company will spend less money in IT resources. Less license fees
| (free in most cases) and less hardware is needed to run the same services
| in Linux.
| * Technical Department will spend less time fixing problems and they will
| have more time to improve the company's IT services. Due to the
| open-source nature of Linux, the IT department will have unlimited
| control on the software it uses.
| * The employees of the company will have faster computers with less
| problems, so they will work more efficiently.
Google's Knol: it's a Wikipedia Jim but not as we know it
,----[ Quote ]
| Google is a lot of fun. For all the valid criticisms about security, privacy
| and potential monopoly the internet is probably a better place for Google
| being there. It could have been worse. It could have been a Microsoft product
| and the needle on the fudometer would have gone through the red and off the
| scale. Google have the resources, technical and financial, to launch an
| armada of projects. They can afford a high failure rate. For every Google
| Base there is Google Chrome, for every Orkut there is the Android phone. You
| have to speculate to accumulate. However, Knol is a stinker. It is
| misconceived and badly executed. Google’s motives have nothing to do with the
| disinterested pursuit of knowledge for its own sake and everything to do with
| monetizing content and pageranking. Free software would be ill served by it.
| So, Mr. DiBona, I’m afraid that it’s a matter of drag and drop the knols into
| the recycle bin. If you don’t know how you could always look it up in
| Wikipedia. Just a thought.
