  Advogato: False open source representative calls for European software patents   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Taylor has been visible as a public speaker, it does not appear that he has any engagement with Open Source projects and developers, or that he brought this matter up with representative organizations such as the Free Software Foundation, the Open Source Initiative, and Software in the Public Interest.
Software patents could be fatal for Open Source software in the U.S. and Europe.
A UK group that does seek to represent the best interests of the wider free software community is at www.affs.org.uk and, therefore, we are currently campaigning against swpat.

 Welcome to the Deval Patrick Committee web site
Free software is software that permits users to run, copy, distribute, study, change, and improve the software for any purpose.
Software purchases should be subjected to similar scrutiny: paying excessive fees to run Microsoft Office on a Windows machine should be seen as an irresponsible way for the state to spend...
Proprietary software should be used only when no open source tool exists or can be affordably expanded (for less than the market cost of the required licenses) to meet a given need.

 Danny O'Brien's Oblomovka
I feel confident with more realtime info, and realtime positioning, a lot more folk would be tempted by public transport, or indeed walking, than now.
The cost is a pain in the Valley ($4.00 for a day pass), but in most decently-run trans areas that burden is less acute.
No, the largest hurdle public transport has to overcome, I think, is the feeling of powerlessness and unpredictability it induces in most people.

 eWEEK Labs Review: Software in the Public Interest's Debian 3.1
Software in the Public Interest's Debian 3.1—aka Sarge—is a well-built and popular Linux distribution that boasts the best software management tools of any operating system we've tested.
While roughness around its edges might limit its effectiveness in desktop roles, the distribution's focus on stability and in-place upgrades make Debian 3.1 a very good option for server deployments.
June saw new releases of two of the world's most significant Linux distributions—Red Hat Inc.'s Fedora Core and Software in the Public Interest Inc.'s Debian—both of which are popular, freely available and capable of serving well in roles from the server room to the desktop.
