Acording to multiple sources (National Public Radio, CNN, USA Today, and others), the Nation of Brazil is going to discontinue the use of the MS Windows Operating system on all of it’s government computers. According to sources, Brazil intends to switch to NON-proprietary software to better control and protect its data. This is raising a major stir in Redmond, leading Bill Gates to lobby for a meeting with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. As if kicking the monopolistic software company off government computers is not enough, Brazil also intends to push its citizens to switch.

My editorial additive content:

I think BGA should be lobbying for a meeting with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. :P



Good Bye … Blue Eyes

BlueEyed OSHaiku

…Who could hang a name on you?… Oh, wait, that’s Ruby Tuesday. :P

As many of you have probably already heard, it appears Blue Eyed OS is out of the OSBOS game. While it is sad to see a post-Be effort to die - the hidden silver lining, as told by Michael Olivera on the Haiku mailing list:

The remaining BlueEyedOS developers and me wants join in Haiku project.

So, while sad, this could give a few extra coders to strengthen (maybe speed up) Haiku development.

UPDATE 02/02/2005:

Seems that was a premature death call. From Guillaume himself:

It seems that Michael (Oliveira), our webmaster, concluded a ‘bit’ too quickly because the website www.BlueEyedOS.com is down for some days (due to a technical issue), that the BlueEyedOS is dead.
It is not.

He also mentions that Zeta has been a high priority for him lately, explaining his recent lack of activity.

What I do hope now that this non-death has gone public via the Haiku mailing list, is that communications between team members does increase, and we still see some of those developers helping out more in Haiku (and possibly vice versa) in the form of code/knowledge sharing and the like.
