Open Source
Came across this article from InfoWorld.

The article tries to show how you don't have to spend lots of money on commercial software for your business when you have open source software which is just as good and free. An interesting read since it provides reviews on open source software that applies to every aspect of running a business.

Justice From CBC:

The Supreme Court of Canada has refused to hear further arguments regarding a levy on iPods and similar digital music players.

On Thursday, the court dismissed an appeal of last December's Federal Court decision to quash a levy that had been charged for the popular music devices.

The levy affected digital music players with embedded memory, including Apple's popular iPod. The Canadian Private Copying Collective, a non-profit agency that collects tariffs on behalf of musical artists and record companies, had been pursuing the appeal.

Events From OnLAMP:

I've finished the first day of the Ottawa Linux Symposium, and already feel I've had enough conference to last a long while. The last time I got to an OLS was four years ago.
