GetGNULinux: the big field
here are thoughts about the future of GetGNULinux, specifically the possibility of "partnering" with vendors selling hardware. It's in a 4-page pdf file (300kB) that (hopefully) is clearly structured.
As I am writing these lines, the GetGNULinux (GGL) project is turning into a better-organized, truly international advocacy effort. There are many exciting projects being pursued, good tools to be used, interesting ideas and improvements. In this paper however, I do not want to mention all of these, instead, I focus on what I call â€œthe big fieldâ€: pushing GNU/Linux up in the world software market.
We can't ignore that free software is still a minor player, and that the future doesn't look to bright as DRM and â€œTrusted Computingâ€ become reality. Without going into an exhaustive study of factors, I try to give answers to the question: What can the GetGNULinux project do about it?
-Some remarks and thoughts
-What can GGL do?
This is not an official white paper, nor a road map, just an attempt to structure and express my thoughts. As usual your thoughts, suggestions etc are most welcome.
