The Ubuntu Book

Out from nowhere, Like magic… you appeared
Technically speaking? someone had put you there, nicely.
Hey, I am just being dramatic here, you know.
The encounter was brief.
No need for an intro,
Nor the usual, who the hell are you?ultimoAdios ubuntu book
Ubuntu? What is that?
Without any second thought,
Picked you up and held you in my arms,
And uttered the word “Preciousssssss!!!!”
Yes, you were so complete, untouched
Like a virgin -Never been kissed
Never been touched
If you were?
I guess, the companion DVD was no longer there.
Lately, I heard a lot about you
In fact, I thought a lot about you
When did you arrive?
Nobody spotted you yet?
Obviously not,
I am the first one,
Oh! was that Destiny!
Our Destiny?
Ubuntu and me… or I?
Which is which?
Who cares!

Inside My Content Management System Directory/Folder

My scheduled electronic storage clean-up was due today. Directories were deleted. Some files were moved and stored to their related directories while some files remained in their places. I usually do cleanup at least once a month especially if I am planning to upload some files for later use.

After everything was arranged, I made a decision to take the screen shot of my Content Management System Directory. See the screen shot below.

2007 Best Open Source PHP CMS Award

[Joomla! 2007 Best CMS]


The Community! and its active participation for the development, deployment, testing, documentation, marketing and support were the reasons of winning this award. My opinion is based on the blockquote below.

…the judges noted a number of factors that helped Joomla! secure the Award. Most notably its good front-end for administrators and end-users, which gives users a simple and traditional company website straight out of the box

Credit goes to? Our developers who made Joomla! out of the box instant website.

Another reason for winning the award according to the judges,

…the judges commented on the size and responsiveness of the community as a massive strength, noting that it can identify potential problems and deal with them quickly.

First GNU-GPL Lawsuit

The Software Freedom Law Center the GNU-GPL defender in its website claimed to have filed the..

“first ever U.S. copyright infringement lawsuit based on a violation of the GNU General Public License (GPL) on behalf of its clients, two principal developers of BusyBox, against Monsoon Multimedia, Inc. BusyBox is a lightweight set of standard Unix utilities commonly used in embedded systems and is open source software licensed under GPL version 2.”

Software Patent

To really understand what the GPL licensing is all about, I thought reading the story of Dan Bricklin’s historical information about VisiCalc known to be the first SpreadSheet, should be helpful. His story about patents is quite a remarkable one. I found it really interesting. But wait! Here is the last paragraph of the GNU-GPL Preamble.

Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents. States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.

Now that my favorite part of the Preamble is there as a reminder, here is the website I was referring to:
