Australian Telco Telstra Complies With GPL 90

Posted by timothy
from the man-pays-utility-bill dept.
An anonymous reader writes "Late last year, Australia's biggest telco Telstra was sharply criticised for using GPL'd code in several of its new products — but not publicly distributing changes it made to the code when doing so. However, it looks as though the company has now come clean, publishing a source code CD of the files changed in its development effort and acknowledging the GPL and Lesser GPL. It's good to see companies responding to the open source community this way and engaging — makes a change from the past!"

Picasa has made excellent decision to NOT modify the original image unless specifically told so by the user.
The previous poster may be unaware that every modification/save cycle will reduce the quality of image stored in the JPEG file (Google/Wikipedia this).
And if you (or you grandma) wants to send the picture, there is email function right in the picasa. On the other hand if you decided to do more serious processing (ex. in Photoshop) your best quality original file is still there.
