Is this for real?

| Wow! Not only there are Ubuntu screenshots and 
| big Wilber, noâ The textbook explains what is 
| Open Source, what are proprietary operating 
| systems. You can even find words like FreeBSD, 
| NetBSD, EXT2, EXT3, UFS :) They equally provide 
| space for Microsoft Windows Vista, XP and Ubuntu 
| Linux (no MacOSX). Granted, in the office 
| section, they explain how to work with MS Office 
| tools, but they acknowledge existence of 
| OpenOffice.org, quoting âWe were attracted by 
| Microsoft Office 2007 and OpenOffice.org.â, 
| providing links to OpenOffice.org (on each 
| chapter about office tools) and manuals.

GIMP too. Watch the screenshots above.

When will GIMP 2.8 be released?

| While the developers still work continuous on 
| the next version of GIMP there comes, of course, 
| the question of a release date. Will GIMP 2.8 
| yet reach us in 2010?

- From the White House to (no kidding) Microsoft, open source shined in '09

| Perhaps the most shocking event was
| Microsoft's submission of code for inclusion
| in the Linux kernel under a GPL license that
| Microsoft once tagged as a threat to
| capitalism itself. But it was not so much an
| olive branch as it was a brain freeze:
| Microsoft had inadvertently included some
| open source code in the virtualization
| drivers it eventually submitted for the Linux
| kernel and was more or less left with little
| choice.
|
| Microsoft ended up in that same spot later in
| the year when a tool it released to create
| bootable USB drives for Windows 7 also was
| found to contain open source code. That tool
| also was pushed into the open source
| community.
