U Done Me Right. U Done Me Wrong

| So, what shall I talk about? Apparently, I can talk about 
| pretty much anything. Given that this is post number one, I'm 
| going to start with a quick overview of what you can expect 
| here. I've been writing about, talking about, getting exciting 
| about ( and a whole bunch more abouts) Linux, including other 
| free and open source software offerings (aka FOSS) for years. 
| I've given talks on Linux, done Linux training, spoken at 
| Linux User Groups, done radio interviews and shows about Linux 
| and FOSS, and I've done a number of television appearances 
| talking about, uh huh, Linux and FOSS. You might say I'm a 
| little passionate about it. What's more, I believe that Linux 
| and FOSS are good for the world.
| The world of Linux and FOSS is rich with talented people who 
| provide us with great software and a great operating system. 
| The landscape spans across just about every type of program 
| imaginable, from office and productivity software, to games, 
| to scientific tools, medical software, multimedia 
| applications, mobile software, to the tools that provide the 
| infrastructure of the Internet and drives the World Wide Web. 
| In that richness of software, there are a huge number of Linux 
| distributions geared to every need. The Linux ecosystem is 
| extremely healthy, always evolving, unhampered by the 
| inbreeding of other operating systems. From this came one of 
| the most popular distributions in the Linux ecosystem; Ubuntu.


Ubuntu One: Canonical Raising Storage Limit 

,----[ Quote ]
| Apparently, some beta testers told Canonical Ubuntu One needed 
| a higher storage limit in order to compete effectively against 
| rival SaaS storage and cloud services. Canonical now plans to 
| raise the limit in time for the Ubuntu One launch this month, 
| though the new storage limit is yet to be disclosed, according 
| to Ubuntu One Product Manager Matt Griffin.



Ph.D. Studies in Open Source at the University of Erlangen

,----[ Quote ]
| Just one year after the Department of Computer Science at
| the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany hired its
| first professor of open source software, its Open Source
| Research Group is now seeking to fill several positions.
| According to the job posting, the University is currently
| looking for "recent graduates or experienced software
| developers to start doctoral studies" in open source.
