Why Google's Chrome OS will be a success The statistics for Chrome OS adoption don't make pretty reading, and we're three years down the line from its launch. However, if Google is patient enough, then its vision of a Chromebook future has a strong chance of becoming a reality.

Rune Converter: English Letters to Germanic Runes Converter The Rune Converter transforms Roman alphabet, as used in modern English, into five systems of Germanic runic writing: Elder Futhark, Anglo-Saxon runes, Long Branch Younger Futhark, Short Twig Younger Futhark and staveless or Hålsinge runes.

Open source: Its true cost and where it's going awry by Monty Widenius Open-source advocate Michael 'Monty' Widenius, main author of the MySQL database, says changes in the movement over the past few years are threatening the viability of projects. Company attitudes to contributing finance and manpower to open-source initiatives have been shifting recently, according to Widenius. Ever since his earliest involvement in the mid-1990s immediately preceding the movement's emergence, people have been prepared to pay for software they valued. "Now the problem is that you have companies that are heavily using open source but refuse to pay anything back because they don't have to," Widenius said. "The whole problem with not having to is kind of new because the open-source movement doesn't go forward if nobody is prepared to pay. You actually make it harder for new companies to form around open source," he said.

Firefox Mobile Is Doomed to Failure: 10 Reasons Why At long last, Mozilla’s Firefox mobile operating system is ready for show time. Mozilla announced on Jul. 1 that its partners, including Alcatel and ZTE, are ready to launch the first devices running the Web-based operating system. The company also promised that other mobile device makers would introduce products soon and that Firefox OS-based devices will appear on store shelves within the next several weeks. Still, the announcement failed to raise much enthusiasm. Save a few tech blogs here and there, most media outlets gave Mozilla’s announcement scant attention. What’s worse, the devices that don’t seem to be generating excitement among smartphone fans who have long become jaded by constant announcements about new handset models.

If OEMs aren't committed to Windows, where are they to go? Microsoft's 10-K annual report filing with the SEC suggests that the company is worried that building its own Surface tablet will affect their OEM partners commitment to the Windows platform. ZDNet's Zack Whittaker digs out the meatiest part of the filing (emphasis added): We derive substantial revenue from licenses of Windows operating systems on personal computers. The proliferation of alternative devices and form factors, in particular mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, creates challenges from competing software platforms. These devices compete on multiple bases including price and the perceived utility of the device and its platform. [...]Even if many users view these devices as complementary to a personal computer, the prevalence of these devices may make it more difficult to attract applications developers to our platforms.
