Open Source magazine

Filed under: Fun,Fun Work,Geek Work,Linux,Things to Read — Posted by the Network Geek during the Hour of the Tiger which is terribly early in the morning or 5:31 am for you boring, normal people.
The moon is Waxing Gibbous

And, yes, it’s free.
Really, there’s this new, on-line magazine that is totally dedicated to the Open Source movement called O3.
Now, this is fun for me. It might not be your thing, but, hey, look at the title of the blog. This is what I do. I love Linux and the other OpenSource projects that are running around out there. I use GIMP more than any other graphics tool, even ones that I paid for myself. Most of my favorite security tools are Open Source. And, nine times out of ten, all this great software is free.
So, if you don’t know about OpenSource software, go check out the magazine. I mean, c’mon, it’s not like you’re doing anything else on a Friday afternoon at work, right?
Next week, more Geek Pickup Lines!

  2. Open source code is neat. Hard to see how it works in practice, why people do it. Then poof, mozilla!

  3. Yes, Mark, it’s a beautiful thing, when it works.

    HaHa! Wendi, sometimes the hard-core geek in me leaks out all over. At least, when something goes wrong on your PC or server or network, I’m a handy guy to have around! I do some plumbing, too. 😉 (Don’t worry, there’ll be more “human interest” stories tonight or tomorrow after another trip to the bookstore.)
