IBM Asks the Court to Throw Out SCO's Entire Case

Both sides in SCO v. IBM have filed motions for summary judgment. To be precise, SCO has filed one for partial summary judgment (which I'll have up in a minute or two) and IBM has filed several motions for summary judgment, one for each of SCO's claims and two more for good measure on two of IBM's counterclaims. In other words, it is asking the court to throw out SCO's entire case, and to grant it judgment on two counterclaims without even going to trial on those two.

Will Linux die in 2018?

If we look at the future, Linux seems to be doomed to a slow death in a dozen years: DRM, proprietary hardware, technologic innovations and political choices are behind this forecast.

I really appreciate Linux, and Open Source in general: a common base, open and free, foster freedom of individuals and better distribute richness. In the last few months I took interest in Linux and Open Source in a long-term perspective. What I see in the future is terrible: Linux's death. It's just a forecast, I know: it's up to you, after reading this document, to decide if it is reliable or not.

Top Linux programmers pan GPLv3

More than two dozen of the most prolific Linux kernel programmers dislike a proposed update to the General Public License, which governs many open-source projects.

Out of 29 kernel coders, 28 rated GPL version 3 as worse than the current GPL version 2, according to results of a survey released Friday. On a scale of -3 to 3, the highest mark was a neutral 0, and the average was -2, according to a posting on the Linux kernel mailing list by Linux programmer and SteelEye employee James Bottomley. The survey was set up by Linux leader Linus Torvalds, who has come out against the GPL update.

The Mozilla Scandal: What can happen to Debian and Ubuntu?

Now that Debian is not allowed to use the Firefox name without showing every patch to Mozilla, people are boycotting Firefox. That is not all that will come of this though. How will this affect Ubuntu? Could Mozilla turn into a Microsoft, only caring about trademarks? This article attempts to clear things up about the Mozilla trademark situation.

gTorrent becomes Deluge: Version 0.1.0 Released

I am happy to (finally) release v0.1.0 of our bittorrent client, Deluge. The client was until now known as gTorrent, but it was changed for a couple of reasons. First, the name gtorrent was already registered on, by the Gildur Torrent Utilities, which itself included a minimal bittorrent client. Secondly, to negate any predisposition that the client is for the Gnome desktop environment only. Deluge uses python and GTK+, so while it will run best on GTK+ based environments such as Gnome or XFCE, it is also capable of running on other DE’s as well, such as KDE.
