    Why the recession means boom time for free software 

    Forgive the self-linkage, but I want to direct you to my recent feature in this week’s Guardian Technology supplement. It examines the recent growth of free software around the world and wonders if the recession is the main reasons for its surge in popularity:

    “Richard Stallman once wrote that the point about free software is it is “free as in freedom, not free as in beer”, meaning that people should be at liberty to do as they pleased with software, rather than subscribe to its restrictive licences. As the recession takes hold, the stress may be on the second half of his now-famous aphorism. To the millions downloading free software in a recession, the point is that it is free – as in free beer.”

      I am using the world’s best online TV viewing software. Spend a lot of time at the computer. For this reason than to watch tv on pc software is required. Thousands of HD channels, TV shows, series, movies all in one software. I searched and really did a very good choice. Don’t pay cable television fees for one year. You still pay them at once and watch tv free from your computer. Once you get use to life.

    New Dawn Fades: Microsoft’s Zune appropriates the spirit of Joy Division 

    First sight of the limited edition Joy Division Zune. Only available in the US. Obviously not good in the rain. Designed by Factory’s Peter Saville.

      Great read, thanks for sharing! I love my Zune so far, I have an iPod too but I find myself using my Zune more often.

      If anyone needs Zune accessories check these guys out, they have great prices.
