Noteworthy news, Oct 29, 2009

The U.S Department of Defense made another contribution to the open-source community. I think this trend will continue since most (if not all) of DoD systems are not commercial, i.e. DoD does not sell them and, hence, does not get any revenue from them, only spending on maintenance and enhancements. Economically, the DoD move makes total sense. 

And another news, Microsoft extends Windows 7 to open-source developers. This news is  interesting to me in light of my quest to gain in productivity while working on multiple tasks. Microsoft is working with Tasktop Technologies, the primary developer/contributor of Mylyn. Mylyn is a task management system on steroids. I wonder if Tasktop can take the most out of this opportunity with Microsoft and enhance its software to drive user experience for task driven users to the next level.
