Jumping to the Nextcloud | LAS 420

Frank & Jos of Nextcloud join us to discuss their fork of ownCloud, some of the history behind the fork, the reaction by ownCloud, & what they plan to do differently this time around.

Plus we debate if Valve’s Steam Machines are a bust, a bit more on Oracle vs Google & much more!

QLC Plus

QLC+ is a free software to control DMX or analog lighting systems like moving heads, dimmers, scanners etc.

This project is a fork of the great QLC project written by Heikki Junnila that aims to continue the development of QLC and to introduce new features.

The primary goal is to bring QLC+ at the level of other lighting control commercial softwares.

Seven months later, Valve’s Steam Machines look dead in the water

_Put it together, and you find that there have been less than half a million Steam Machines sold over a span of more than half a year.


Google’s fair use victory is good for open source

Let me first explain the main facts and claims in the lawsuit, and then why Google’s fair use victory is a good thing not only for Google but also for open source developers, for software developers more generally, and for the public.

So why is this a victory for the open source community as well as for Google? The main reason is because open source programs are often designed to interoperate with, either as complements or substitutes for, existing programs.

Hurst is wrong in asserting that Google’s fair use victory means that anyone can freely appropriate whatever they want from open source and other programs.
