In production and development, open source is a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source]
Google Chrome is the latest answer from Google to the market of browser. I plan to use it at the moment for its privacy feature (you should be able to browse without leaving any cookie or trace) fro my e-banking. After 2 days of usage, I still feel not ready to give away my other browser:
I like Google chrome, as it work perfectly and always give the best search result. I will switch if any engine is able to deliver better results, but since 9 years, I am still waiting...
XBMC is a cross-platform software available for Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows operating-system, as well as the original Xbox game-console. I am using it since 2003 on my XBOX
XBMC is currently available for Ubuntu Linux, Mac OS X (Intel-based Leopard and Tiger), Microsoft Windows, and the original (first-generation) Xbox. We are currently at Beta 1 for our upcoming release code named Atlantis. It should be noted that XBMC requires OpenGL 1.4 support, at a minimum, to function. We do however recommend OpenGL 2.0 to fully experience XBMC. Check your graphics drivers to see what version of OpenGL your GPU (graphics processing unit) supports.
Debian will powered for sure my next Internet root server, and I am currently giving it a try for my Monster NAS (instead of OpenSuse, Opensuse being still in use on a HP NW9440)

I am really glad to announce that I am now officially in the EOS Directory Advisory and Expert Board of the EOS directory.
The EOS directory is the leading online platform to help enterprises and organizations identify and evaluate Open Source technologies.
Initially launched by Optaros, about two years ago, the platform has been recently handed over Bruno von Rotz, initial sponsor of the initiative and well known Open Source specialist (follow Bruno on Twitter: accelIT).
In support to strengthen the neutral approach to ratings and selection of the technologies, the new EOS Directory Advisory and Expert Board has been established over the last weeks and announced today.
The Advisory and Expert Board will be both instrumental in guiding the future development of the EOS Directory Platform as well as in making sure that the content is accurate, relevant and fairly represented. (Source: EOS Directory Blog)
The initial member list of the EOS Directory Advisory and Expert Board – representing user and provider communities as well as international expert audiences – includes Aleksander Farstad, Cédric Walter, David Nüscheler, Gianugo Rabellino, Roberto Galoppini, Hannes Gassert, Hans Waarle, Joel Gardet, Matt Asay, Matthias Geisler, Michael Hanisch, Olivier Pépin, Raju Bitter, Ralf Hauser, Seth Gottlieb, Stephen Walli and Tiberiu Fustos.
During the next months the EOS Directory Platform will also be rejuvenated and updated to even better support Enterprises and Organizations in need for Open Source technologies’ selection and evaluation help. (Source: EOS Directory Blog

A very good article; worth reading to better understand the difference between Linux and Windows and motivate an eventual switch...
"Too many people think that migrating from Windows to Linux is like switching from a BMW to a Mercedes. They think that the controls should be the same, their experience should transfer directly, and all differences should be largely cosmetic. They think that "I need a car to use a road, I need an OS to use a computer. Cars all work the same way, therefore OSes should all work the same way." But this is not accurate. "I need a vehicle to use a road, I need an OS to use a computer. I know how to drive a car, I'm ignorant about motorbikes. I know how to use Windows, I'm ignorant about Linux." - this is accurate."

|SUSE Linux 10.1 is available for download at the following mirrors.
This release is SuSE 10.1 and not different from what you will later be able to buy in a store. The boxed retail comes with 5 CDs for x86 and one DVD9 for x86 and x86_64 and it also includes non-OSS software. It also comes with a nice, thick printed manual and 30 days of support. You won't get that with the free download.
The free download comes on 5CDs without non-OSS software and one add-on CD with this non-OSS software. Later (hopefully not much later) there will be two DVD5 releases, one for x86 and one for x86_64 that are almost identical with the retail DVD9 and that include OSS and non-OSS software.

XGL on SUSE 10.1
For those who prefer the DVD version, You ll have to buy the box version or use a small LINUX utility called 'makeSuseDVD' out. It will take the 5 CD ISOs and build a single DVD iso.
"The big announcement today: Java will be open sourced under the GPL. I think it makes a lot of sense because it protects Sun's interest in preventing forks and also the community's interest in knowing that Java will forever be available in the public sphere. The GPL has always provided an option to fork just in case someone takes the code in a bad direction. Historically having this option available ensures that it never needs to actually be used, letting the community grow and thrive.
So what does this actually mean? What is the benefit to open source Java? How will things change? Here's what I think will change and what won't. I say this as my own opinion, not an official statement from Sun. I also say this as someone new to Sun, coming to Sun two years ago from an open source background. I'm sure that engineers with more experience than I will have different opinions. So with that, let's hear it:
How will open source change Java
Okay, so maybe that last one is a stretch, but it's true that this will help to bring More Java to More Places."The licence that Sun have now decided for Java are explained in a document called the "GPL license". Those terms included the most important one, which is that no-one may redistribute a version or derivative of this Sun Java code without making the source code of that version or derivative also come under the GPL. (Yes Steve Ballmer GPL act like a virus ;-) ).
