WordPress Creator GPL Says WP Template Must Be GPL'd
So anything that even calls WordPress APIs gets the GPL touch of death...
I understand going after Thesis for copying chunks of GPL code, but all that the WordPress community will get out of this is some bad press for themselves and F/OSS in general.
Toyota Claims Woman "Opted In" To Faux Email Stalking
So either she didn't see the opt-out links or address of the company, or the email didn't have these. Unless they got really creative with the opt-in, this sounds like a violation of the CAN SPAM act. A $10M lawsuit from one woman is the least of their worries.
Scribus 1.0 Released
Quark has been holding us back for years. My department would like to move to Mac OS X, and we're certainly being pushed by the IT and Systems departments. I'm sure we could even move to Linux instead, and use a solution like Yellow Dog Linux on the machines here. Our machines would be much more stable either way.
But no matter how easy to use or feature-filled or completely great this Scribus is, it'll be useless to us if it can't "flow" with the other software we use. The systems to control the ads and artwork are specifically designed to work with Quark XPress, and now Adobe InDesign too. They're also custom-tailored to our workspace by the company that programmed them.
So, until Scribus or other open-source solutions can draw the kind of attention needed to have extensions and software written around or including them, they can't be considered viable options for time- and flow-dependent workspaces. Of course, they need to be considered by those kind of workspaces to draw attention, but oh well. I just hope we can move to InDesign, OS X, and to direct-to-plate processing without going crazy.
