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.

Open Source Brief:
The portal Canada Ads Classifieds was launched last month and covers Canada demographically by city. All the sites I have built can be discovered at throttle problem..

All of the sites are based on Open Source LAMP projects. The contributions of many Open Source Developers are made plainly visable to all viewing them. Things are not as smooth or polished as they could be but then that would mean alot more pizza and cola.

Beer and Pizza aside - General surfing public at my sites are being presented with open source alternatives. Unbranded albeit but otherwise solid open source alternatives to online applications and websites. Perhaps the sites would make a great place for a frontal Canadian Open Source Adoption Awareness Campaign.

Open Source

Gurgaon, India – January 18, 2005: Daffodil Software, a leading database technology company, today announced the Open Source release of One$DB at

The move to Open Source One$DB, is driven by the fact that Open Source products are more acceptable and flexible, as they can be understood better in terms of strengths and limitations and can be customized to suit specific requirements without any fear of vendor locking. We also feel that Open Source products become more mature due to the continuous involvement of a diverse community.

ZeD features original live music, dance and spoken word performances by groundbreaking artists; frontline indie-culture reportage by a crew of cross-Canada video correspondents; chats with culture creators who are making a stir; and innovative short film, video, animation, music, words, performance, ideas and, visual art pieces from around the world.

Open Source From

Seneca College in Toronto will work with a local software developer to move a network management tool for Linux to the open source model.

Two-year-old Tenth Power Technologies Inc. announced the arrangement with Seneca that will see students at Canada’s largest college work on ongoing development of its LANUX software.

Dennis Bernhard, chief executive of Tenth Power, said his company primarily provides services and custom development to Linux users, and developed LANUX for its own use in managing clusters of Linux systems for two of its customers. He said the company -- whose core development team has been working together for about six years -- sees turning it into an open source product as a way of creating a community around the software. Tenth Power will make its money by offering custom development, support and other services related to LANUX.

Open Source Aparently the CBC has finally realized that open source technology can save them money. I'm not sure when this first happened, but you can now listen to Radio One and Radio Two in OGG streaming format. Way to go CBC.
