Choose Your Favorite Open Source SBC, Enter to Win Prizes

Linux.com - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 16:41

When I began researching Linux.com's third annual Top 10 open source SBC board feature, it quickly became clear that so many new boards had shipped since our last Top 10 in August 2013, any personal judgment would be highly arbitrary. So in the spirit of self-serve consumerism and general laziness, I am passing the hard work on to you. Together with LinuxGizmos.com, Linux.com has set up a survey on SurveyMonkey with 33 open spec single board computers that fit our fairly broad requirements.

The Man Behind Munich's Migration of 15,000 PCs From Windows To Linux

Linux Slashdot - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 14:33
An anonymous reader writes "It's one of the biggest migrations in the history of Linux, and it made Steve Ballmer very angry: Munich, in southwest Germany, has completed its transition of 15,000 PCs from Windows to Linux. It has saved money, fueled the local economy, and improved security. Linux Voice talked to the man behind the migration: 'One of the biggest aims of LiMux was to make the city more independent. Germany’s major center-left political party is the SPD, and its local Munich politicians backed the idea of the city council switching to Linux. They wanted to promote small and medium-sized companies in the area, giving them funding to improve the city’s IT infrastructure, instead of sending the money overseas to a large American corporation. The SPD argued that moving to Linux would foster the local IT market, as the city would pay localcompanies to do the work.'
