Firefox is doing good

Rumours say that Firefox, which is produced by the for-profit Mozilla Corporation, made $72M last year and is on target to have 120 employees this year.
This is roughly $1/user perhaps already less I would guess firefox users are near to 100 million already. Anyway, intresting information. I hope they growth to 120 employees will extend innovation, features and quality of the product in same scale.

How to choose an open-source CMS

Content management specialist Seth Gotlieb has written an easy to understand how-to on selecting an open source CMS at zdnet. Gotlieb is also responsible for the whitepaper ‘Content Management Problems and Open Source Solutions‘ which summarizes 15 open source projects and distinguishes between open source CMS and proprietary software selection.

Many Companies want a formal tech support solution where they can call someone on the phone to ask questions and blame. I think many of the smaller open source projects are over looked because of the lack of phone support; however, some of the larger projects such as Open Office do provide tech support and are used by more companies because of it.

Good place to start looking is http://www.opensourcecms.com/

GNOME Luminocity and Cairo

Here is a couple of very intresting GUI updates for GNOME.

Luminocity is a 3-D window manager using Open GL with effects like warping windows and alpha compositing. Cairo is an antialiased font and stroke renderer that makes GNOME look better on the screen. Seth Nickell’s blog
has some videos demonstrating these features.
