I didn't want to just copy the original title
, hence this lame version
This article does not uncover surprising fact, but is a nice short summary. Naturally it leaves out things that are superimportant to others, but oh well.
With 2008 coming to an end, heise online UK picks what was full of win, who was waiting for the failboat, and who just made us go meh. So in no particular order, here are the Wins, the Fails and the Mehs of Open Source from 2008.
Mentioned are for example: SCO, Debian (twice), and GPL.
Some of the events I have been following since the very beginning (SCO), some I read past when they appeared in my feed reader, and others didn't and still don't interest me.
And with regard to the problems of the Debian
community I think we at Donationcoder are doing a terrific job
at keeping modest, friendly, helpful and still productive. It is not easy for a huge community as ours to be as stable as we are. Sometimes I think it's a miracle; at least we very unique. We should be proud of what we have accomplished thus far!
