OSI President Questions WebM Patent License Compatibility with Open Source

njahnke Too little, too late (37 comments)

No one uses WebM. Google dropped the ball. Now even Mozilla is allowing their browser to use the underlying OS to support H.264 playback. This ship has sailed. Better luck next time.

Experts Develop 3rd-Party Patch For New Java Zero-Day

njahnke Re:And this is why I don't have Java Installed (154 comments)

Why Linux Can't 'Sell' On the Desktop

njahnke Re:heh (1091 comments)

Core pieces like GTK are outdated and a poor platform for building a desktop environment. If you try to contribute, you run into a buzz saw of red tape and gate keepers. If you want to write an app today and publish tomorrow, you need to be on Android or iOS.
