| That's not as easy as it sounds: Open source 
| support provider OpenLogic reports more than 
| 330,000 open source software packages for 
| enterprises to choose from.


Measuring your Companyâs Open Source Maturity: A Quiz

| The "Embrace" Stage
| In this phase companies begin to fully 
| understand the benefits that open source 
| brings and start to proactively consider 
| open source technology and its benefits.
|     * Our company understands what open 
|     source we use and where it is deployed.
|     * Management has realized that open 
|     source can save us money on software 
|     costs, enabling us to get more done with

Join your jeesh for zero-g battles in Leges Motus

,----[ Quote ]
| Isaac Newton, in his Principia, outlined his 
| famous laws of motion, or in Latin âleges 
| motus.â As you know, Newton was an avid 
| computer gamer, so itâs fitting that a 
| SourceForge project has adopted Leges Motus 
| as the name for its 2-D multiplayer shooter. 
| In this game, players attempt to travel 
| across a zero-gravity arena while freezing 
| the opposing teamâs members in order to 
| bring down the opponentsâ gate. Game play 
| combines fast-paced action with team 
| tactics, yet the basics are simple enough 
| that beginners can jump into it immediately.
| Its developers says itâs the only open source 
| game that combines 2-D graphics, top-down 
| shooter gameplay, and a zero-gravity 
| environment.

| With a small development team, Partlan says 
| itâs easy to coordinate work on the code by 
| talking on IRC or in person, âbut we would 
| like to expand our team to speed up the 
| process of development. Weâre looking to 
| make some really cool features happen in the 
| future. We want to create more interesting 
| weapons, such as a burst-fire machine gun 
| that takes some time to charge up, and a 
| melee weapon that fires a pulse of energy in 
| a small radius around you. We also would 
| like to create an AI client, so more players 
| can try the game out without needing to wait 
| for opponents. Weâll also be adding a 
| keyboard mapping menu, among other things.
