OSCON, the O'Reilly Open Source Convention
July 19 - 23, 2010
Oregon Convention Center
Faster, Freer, Smarter: Whatever your Goal, Make It Happen with Open Source
More than 2,500 experts, developers, sys admins, and hackers will meet
up at OSCON 2010 to explore the tools, services, and platforms that
make up the vibrant open source ecosystem. Join us!
The OSCON Call for Participation is now open. If you have winning
techniques, favorite lifesavers, war stories, productivity tips, or
other ideas to share, we want to hear from you. We're especially on
the look-out for ways to do more with less, design and usability best
practices, mobile device innovations, cloud computing,
parallelization, open standards and data, open source in government,
business models, and beyond.
Speak up about the freedom--and opportunity--of open source at OSCON
2010. Submit your proposal by February 1, 2010 at:
I have some problems with the definitions of the 4f's.
friends - this is a clear thing , we are all friends, the world is
pink and there are no conflicts (until proven otherwise)
features - is a clear thing to, fedora is a distribution huge amount
of features (perhaps not enough features ;-) we need more).
first - there is my first problem. This is like a racing duel with
other distributions. We can not win on all sectors. This is more a
destination, our goal.... We WANT to be the first, but we are not
always the first.
freedom - This one is my biggest problem. What's the definition of freedom?
The definition of freedom, which was definied by the FSF, formed the
understanding of freedom in the whole world. And the FSF (Richard
Stallman himself) said, that fedora is not free. So what's the current
understanding of freedom in the fedoraproject?
I haven't found arguments to discuss with someone about it.
