Mel Chua explained[4] what the Fedora Marketing folks are up to for Fedora 13. Hint: A lot.

Greg DeKoenigsberg responded[5] to criticism of the OLPC project, explaining that "OLPC is now, and has always been, a single piece of a very large puzzle" while there are many outgrowths from the OLPC work that have been incredibly successful, including the entire Netbook craze.

Julian Aloofi described[6] the real problem with Free Software. "There is one real problem with Free Software, and it is very hard to fix. I would even say it is impossible." Read on for the awesome truth.
