  • Video: The history of Fedora

    You’ve seen him here before, but it’s been a while since he popped in for a visit. You can enjoy his earlier work here, here, here or here. (Or check out his entire RHM collection). Who is that masked man? It’s the Fedora Project’s Greg DeKoenigsberg. And who better to talk about this history of the Fedora than someone who has been involved nearly every step of the way…

    I’ll close this section and this part of my survey with a brief presentation of Sonogram, a neat program for analyzing and viewing audio signals in various analysis methods and display formats. I’ve run out of space, but the screenshot in Figure 11 should give you an idea of Sonogram’s capabilities. It’s a very cool program, useful and interesting for more than its eye-candy, thanks to its wide variety of signal analysis algorithms.

    More promotion of proprietary and patented products. More PR announcements without substance. Increased usage of the “open source” expression that lacks any useful instead of “Free Software”.

    Hail you O hypocrite!

    Note: comment has been flagged for arriving from an incarnation of a known (eet), pseudonymous, forever-nymshifting, abusive Internet troll that posts from open proxies and relays around the world.

    10 years ago I liked the Web site bored.com. It has changed a lot since, but it has plenty for you to explore.

    The Web is a big place. If you don’t like this site, you don’t have to visit it. What compels you to spend so much energy just harassing sites you dislike, as opposed to raving in/about sites that you like?

    One could ask you the same question, Roy – why do you spend so much time attacking Novell, Mono, et al rather than just raving about things you do like?

    Oh, right, because you crave attention even if gotten via wrongfully attacking other people.

    You never track my activity outside this Web site. I only spend about 20% of my capacity here. I mostly advocate Free software.

    Let it be added that people who run a site with a statement are different from people who visit that site just to discredit it. I am not a fan of Britney Spears, yet I never visit Britney Spears sites to attack Britney Spears or her fans.
