FAA boots out MS Windows and Office

Yeee Haaah... Get the InformationWeek news article here.

This is good news. Google App and Linux Desktop. I have been using Google Docs and Spreadsheets for a few months now. In fact, I like it. The best part, I can edit the documents from the browser on my mobile phone. Not too many folks may want to do it. But, I am a self-confessed internet junkie.

Now, if FAA can be convinced to look at OpenSolaris as a possible option as well, that would be nice. Better still, they should move to SunRay thinclients and use Google Apps.

How opensource has changed education?

Interesting article which talks about 10 success stories of how opensource has changed education.

Read it here. 

OpenNMS beat HP OpenView and IBM Tivoli

Noticed that OpenNMS, an opensource systems management software is the winner of the Search Networking - Product Leadership Awards 2007 for Network and IT management platforms.

I am impressed because they managed to beat HP (OpenView) and IBM (Tivoli). Pretty neat for an opensource product.

Opensource Software Distribution Initiative - We need that in India...

OSSDI - An interesting initiative that is committed to
distributing open source alternatives to expensive commercial software
packages, especially in education. And their first initiative will be to distribute OpenOffice in developing nations. More details available on their home page.

Now, I need to figure out how our FOSS (Free and open source software) initiatives can tie in with OSSDI activities in India.
