A look at Unicode with bash on Windows
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

When I wrote this blog about “bash on Windows” a few days ago I omitted one issue, that I already knew about. This is because it needs some elaboration that did not ‘fit in’ the previous blog. So I will do it here.

It is about Unicode. Unicode always was a pain in “cmd” and with the arrival of “bash” in Windows, this has become more significant and important. Actually on any recent *nix platform user will not do anything to make Unicode work ‘out …

Hello dear readers and attendees,

This is the post that I will be/ will have been referencing during my presentation to the Seattle Central Community College’s Byte club on Thursday, December 10th at 1500-1630.

Recently I got the opportunity to be a part of the windows team. We are (yes still are) using a microsoft (yes the same microsoft) product to handle one of our websites due to legacy bindings - user base, existing technology, backend team. My first encounter with microsoft on the enterprise end was when we were trying to use Microsoft Navision - supply chain management solution - in one of my

Linus on Instantiation and Armadaification
+0 Vote Up -1Vote Down

I feel a sense of pride when I think that I was involved in the development and maintenance of what was probably the first piece of software accepted into Debian which then had and still has direct up-stream support from Microsoft. The world is a better place for having Microsoft in it. The first operating system I ever ran on an 08086-based CPU was MS-DOS 2.x. I remember how thrilled I was when we got to see how my friend’s 80286 system ran BBS software that would cause a modem to dial a local system and display the application as if it were running on a …

WebOS and the open alternative live another day
+0 Vote Up -0Vote Down

There has been no shortage of reaction to HP’s move to make the Linux-based WebOS open source software. Below, I offer some of my thoughts on the meaning for the different players affected.

*What’s it mean for WebOS?
Moving WebOS to open source was best option for HP. It retains some value in the software depending on its involvement. It is also the best fate for the code, rather then being sold or simmered to its IP and patent value or even used as another weapon in the ongoing mobile software patent wars. Still, the move comes amid huge developer and consumer uncertainty for WebOS. Nevertheless, at least WebOS was already in the market with a …
