There are/have been several Debian developers in their payroll: Jordi Mallach, Miquel Gea and others.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
In Valencia, they have actually replaced every Windows, Microsoft Office and any other non-FLOSS software with LliureX. It was done last year, when Microsoft threatened to take legal action after the regional government failed to pay for Microsoft licenses. LliureX had been languishing for years before that, after a huge hype, excitement and first deployments about 10 years ago.
Had Microsoft not threatened to take legal action, Linux would not be in use today. Thank you, Microsoft!
It's sad to hear this but it's exactly what I predicted 2 years ago. I even provided an alternative that would work: use an "Android Core" as the base operating system, instead of Mer Linux, then port KDE to this "Android Core":
Interestingly, this is exactly what Digia did for Qt, with the Boot to Qt (AKA Qt Enterprise Embedded) solution, a while after I made my proposal.
Why would I buy a weak HP tablet for $100 when I can have a better tablet for $90?
Cube (well-known Chinese manufacturer) tablet with same features as HP plus: built-in BlueTooth, GPS and 3G. Only $90, shipping included.
Kexi has worked on Windows and Mac for more than 5 years already and latest builds are available as part of Calligra
There have been several threads on NuttX on the RPi and the "problem" is: what to do with so many resources? NuttX does not need 512 MB or RAM. It does not even need 512 *KB* of RAM! But yes, it's completely possible and there was a thread recently about using NuttX as a desktop operating system. Maybe not that crazy.

Bad reason, too. Serenity Systems is now the official (blessed by IBM) provider for patches, security updates, new drivers, etc under the brand "OS/2 eCommStation".
No, sound support is not reason enough. OS/2 ATMs in Spain have blind support, including sound.
It seems you have little knowledge of the SCADA world. The air gap is an illusory security. Iran's nuclear plants had SCADA computers air gapped from the IT network. It did nothing: a USB, a CD, a virus infecting an update to your very SCADA software, etc will bring you back to reality.
The air gap is not the solution. Proper isolation, firewalling and virus/malware is.
The runtime is the most interesting part to me. They are effectively replacing the LSB with a "binary LSB" that you can distribute with your game.
By ensuring any application compiled against the Steam Runtime will work on SteamOS, they are providing a solid baseline for developers. From now on, developers will know they can relay on Steam Runtime.
Next thing may be we start to see other applications (not games) to use the Steam Runtime and provide it on non-SteamOS distributions.
Replying to myself: obstetricians here ALSO recommend folic acid for fathers-to-be.
How is this news? In Europe obstetricians advise women to start taking folic acid (AKA vitamin B9) at least two months before trying to get pregnant. Isn't the same advice given in America?
MUMPS is used by the Veteran's Administration, and probably others too. In fact, it became an ISO/IEC standard in 2005.
