A few words from our sponsor, David Tang, Business Partner Manager of
Novell Singapore, who arranged for this opportunity.
Pls submit your contributions to Louis by 15th of each month to be
able to make it to e-print the following month (15th Aug e-print Oct)
Remember to play nice with the media and take the high road, do not
preach to the converted and remember they are on our side by offering
this medium at this time.
Keep conspiracy theories to a minimum at this time, present the facts
and opinions of what works.
Do not pit open source vs proprietary as the methodology of
development has to be disassociated with the final useful software
code. Code that is good is irrefutable regardless of development
methods & this is the angle that is acceptable rather than open source
is better. There are more open source projects that have bad code out
there simply not enough contributors work on the projects.
The world is not all LAMPed and because we continue on the route of
creating open source projects, we will end up with a success ratio
that will be less than the survival rate of setting up new small
The gems among open source projects are shinier than the stars and we
cannot effectively pitch a few successful projects and collectively
convince any sane individual that all open source is better. Rather
those projects that attract a global following in numbers & intellect
greater than what is necessary to creatively develop, sustain &
maintain a project throughout it's useful life cycle are the ones that
will ultimately be polished & recognized as the precious few that have
a life and legacy beyond our survival.
This living legacy is what Linux has molded itself to be and we can be
proud to be a part of the next evolution of open source. Contribute
to create your living legacy.
