Weaseling a good idea

The recent announcement of the KDE League is a good thing. It would be even better if the KDE people hadn't lied about it months ago.

The real difference between Linux and freeBSD - a licensing primer

Unlike the GPL, the BSD license also allows developers to create proprietary software from modified code, without giving those modifications back as Open Source. By contrast, anything created with GPL code remains Open Source. The software can be sold, but the source code must be included, for free.

Linux shell scripting tutorial

This tutorial is designed for beginners only. This tutorial explains the

basics of shell programming by showing some examples of shell programs. A
