[Commercial] Highlights - LFY November 2006
- Dear Readers,
With the Fedora team, as usual, pushing the release date of FC6 again
and again (before finally releasing it on 24th and it getting
available for download on 25th), we were left with no option but to go
for the next most requested distro on the bulletinn board - Mandriva
Linux 2007. This distro is a treat for users who like to work on
multi-architecture platforms (32-bit and 64-bit).
Coming to the editorial highlights, we have a mega interview with
Javed Tapia, founder Red Hat India, who speaks to the media for the
first time after stepping down from his position of director - India.
In the trends section, this month we discuss about the use of Linux in
tghe supercomputing world.
We have two very interesting case studies this month, one that
discusses the first mover advantage taken by Samsung by incorporating
the 'Linux-compatible' logo in their printer advertisement and the
other about Bombay high court adopting Linux/OSS.
In our opinions section, this month, the community opines on how
whether IPR is a boon or a bane. Also, in the 'Down Memory Lane'
series, we look at the history of the KDE project.
