Nostalgia…. and a feeling of a missed opportunity

Once again on LInux. This article is full of “nostalgia” for people who followed all of this development.
At the same time the article leaves a sense of a “missed opportunity”. To clarify I reproduce here the complete text of my online comment:

In the meantime, people at Apple, using the same unix-like baseline, developed something everybody likes and everybody would like to have.
This slideshow unfortunately represents the reality of a fight between 3 chickens in the same hen house. Instead of coalescing to produce something every user would like to have, they fought each other and, at best, "followed" what was popular elsewhere.
Just my personal interpretation of course!

It is not the first time I comment on this topic. And I will continue because I really cannot understand how someone could think that Unity (from Canonical) or Gnome could be something a normal user would like to have on her own desktop (if not because it does not cost anything)

Why (and how) should a company go to Social Media ?

I recently had the opportunity, together with my friend and colleague Willem Gabilly, to present IBM’s Social Computing Guidelines.  You can access here to the english version of the slides I presented. If you are interested in the French version of those slides, please go here. If you would be interested in the video recorded out my the session, it is available here

The end of a dream: innovation in the hands of lawyers !

Probably the news is already in your mailboxes. Samsung seems ready to counterattack against Apple and its recent claims for patent infringement: Samsung may be ready to stop the long-waited availability of the iPhone 5.

It is a strange world the one in which we live. Economists (the modern form of sorcerer) instead of Presidents and Nations, drive the world. And, soon, Lawyers will drive innovation.

What to do? (“Che Fare?”)
