Linux Graphics, IBM Survey and Linspire

Thursday 1st September 2005

Category: News

Only a few things to mention recently, all of which are related to Linux. The first is an article on the state of Linux graphics.

Next up is a survey from IBM, which states that Linux is cheaper than Windows to deploy and manage. That makes a nice change from the all the Microsoft surveys that bizarrely seem to favour Microsoft all the time.

Last is a piece of news about Linspire, and a free version called Freespire. The man responsible for Freespire took the open source code from Linspire, and then created his own private project. The only problem was the name, which Linspire decided was too similar to their own, resulting in an agreement between the two. It's good to see people getting along!
