- From the community, with love

| Ever thrown your hands up in despair when that much-anticipated video file 
| would not play without yet another round of codec/plug-in installations? If 
| your answer is an emphatic ‘No,’ you probably are already on to the Video Lan 
| way of life — free and independent, even literally so.   
| The VLC player, which finally released version 1.0 this month after a decade 
| of development, is truly a labour of love — in true Unix tradition 
| development, versions till now were numbered under 1.0. This is the legacy of 
| the free software (and open source) world, where developer communities — and 
| not corporations — develop and own the software and distribute it freely. VLC 
| is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

,----[ Quote ]
| OSCON 2009 is in full swing, which means you can't walk more than 10 feet
| without tripping over a well-known geek. We’ve just spoken to Ross Turk,
| Director of Community at SourceForge, ahead of the Community Choice Awards on
| Thursday night. Here’s what he had to say on who he’d have chosen, had it not
| been completely unethical and against all his better principles...


SourceForge delivers 4 billionth open source download

,----[ Quote ]
| Since 1999, SourceForge has the 'go to place' for all open source downloads,
| but in the last couple of years, Google Code has put up a bit of challenge.
| Remember also for a while there was this constant thread in media about how
| SourceForge had 100,000 project, though most had been abandoned.
| SourceForge.net now has 230,000 projects and if downloads are an indication,
| they seem to be doing just fine.


SourceForge Grows Up - and Out

| its strategies for growth encompass ways to better serve its base. Among its
| goals are a transformation of the Sourceforge.net Web site into "a
| world-class development environment," said Jon Sobel, SourceForge's group
| president of media.


How Do We Introduce FOSS and Linux to Those Who Resist It?

,----[ Quote ]
| At home, it’s more manageable, in a way. You have less users to deal with but
| they could be more stubborn than 10 other users combined. In any case, it’s
| easier to study the habits of your family and/or housemates compared to an
| entire organization. Studying them will take time and interaction with them
| too. But then you get to have a better grasp of what software they need, what
| tasks they need to accomplish etc. In an office, it gets trickier because
| each person has different needs and there’s a whole lot of them so you have
| to study them a lot.
