Open source bolsters big brands big time

,----[ Quote ]
| So maybe all of you Big Mac and Coke fans out there can 
| tell me how these other two are using Linux and open 
| source software significantly. Regardless, I think itâs 
| clear that open source software is helping the largest 
| companies and brands in the world maintain their place 
| atop the mind and market.


GroundWork Monitor 6.0 Released with New Features and Streamlined Interface

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on the idea that the tree-style viewing options 
| typically found in today's montoriting software is 
| longer the best choice for applications running in the 
| cloud, GroundWork has developed what it's calling a 
| "Seurat View" to help users see at a glance where tiny 
| pieces of data fit into the larger picture.



Open Source Means Business

,----[ Quote ]
| But some entrepreneurs have found ways to build their companies on a
| shoestring using open source software, and they have figured out how to make
| money off something generally considered free.
| Take Brian Behlendorf, an open source pioneer who recounts those early
| days. "The term 'free software' made it sound like an anti-capitalist
| movement, yet the reality is we were hardcore capitalists," he says. "We
| liked a lot of the attributes of that type of software and felt a rebranding
| effort was needed. That is when the term 'open source' was coined."


Gameloft Moves 1,000 Desktops to Ubuntu Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| âItâs been a pretty big deployment, well over 1000 desktops and itâs been a
| huge success,â crows the source. âUbuntu does the same job [as Windows] for
| zero cash. The most painful thing about the change over was moving to
| Thunderbird from Outlook. No one has batted an eyelid about moving to Gnome.â

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
