Here's a slightly uncomprehensive review of the 2010 that was...

(Isn't that also the name of a film...?)

2010: The year open source went invisible


Not mentioned in there is the explosion of software patents and other IP
lawsuits amongst various big telecoms players, and also amongst other
computer players. Also, there's no mention of the big anti-trust payoffs
paid out by Microsoft and Intel for their various bits of grand-scale
dirty business tricks...

And Linux develops ever further.

Is it all a game?

Meanwhile, France is still a software patents free zone. What of the
rest of the world?

Happy 2010!
