Why Can’t Free, Open Source Linux Beat Windows?

Why Can’t Free, Open Source Linux Beat Windows? | Common technically random thoughts | Scoop.it

In 1991, Linus Torvalds, a second year informatics student from Helsinki, introduced a project he had been working on in his free time: an operating system derived from Unix. The Finnish student launched the final version of Linux in 1994. The OS has been improved throughout time by many programmers from around the world but Linux, which is a free OS, has not come anywhere near Microsoft’s market share...

New Copyright Alert System Launches | Cable Tech Talk

New Copyright Alert System Launches | Cable Tech Talk | Common technically random thoughts | Scoop.it

When I sit in front of my computer, it’s a wonder I get anything accomplished.  There are seemingly millions of hours of TV shows, movies, music, and cat videos, all of them staggeringly easy to find, download, and share.

 

But where did all of this content come from? Sure, some of it was home made, but what about the professional stuff? When I stream an episode of “The Americans” online, is it coming directly from FX or is it a pirated copy? Or what about when I download a song? Is the band getting paid? Am I using it in an authorized manner?

 

In an effort to answer these questions and educate Internet users about their digital media options, the Center for Copyright Information launched the Copyright Alert System yesterday. This system is designed to alert users to possible infringing activities, help users figure out where to find legal content, and advise them how to avoid accidentally downloading unauthorized copies of copyrighted works.
