Gobe Software

Right. So by now you’ve all heard the news about Gobe not opensourcing productive due to horrible business issues which are somewhat annoying. Well, it seems that BeUnited is stepping up to the plate and doing what most said can’t be done: starting a donation fund. So if you have a few dollars (or a few hundred thousand) why not head over there and work with them and gobe to open source the best office suite ever. Maybe YellowTab could cough up some licensing cash. Or maybe BeUnited could strike a deal to get the code escrowed until they sell x number of copies. Who knows… but help them if you can. Its worth it.

Right. So BeUnited, that group of dashing gentlemen tirelessly working to save your favorite os, have launched their Open Standards Portal, a site dedicated to posting standards proposals and refining them through a community process.

On of the things that is great about the openbeos effort is how organized the community is keeping it. it is very much a unified effort, and this is a huge step in getting every last user involved in crafting the best possible os for everyone. I highly suggest you all go over and join in the discussion of the future. YOU can actually influence what happens to the os. So dont waste your chance.

Congratulations to the BeUnited team for taking such a huge step towards a unified set of standards for the osbos system(s). Keep up the great work!
