Excellent and insightful comments from SSRC on the BSA's as-poor-as-you'd-expect 2010 report. I just hope that there are legislators taking note of this research.

Given we all know their reports are biased rubbish now that SSRC has published their report, why do they keep publishing it? It's because it is part of the foodchain - along with uncritical politicians who can't distinguish between lobbyists and citizens - that leads to bad laws like the US PROTECTIP Act and the Digital Economy Act in the UK. The BSA's report is specifically engineered to trigger over-reaching, citizen-hostile legislation. The BSA's position is the ultra-extremist end-of-scale marker that ought to be regarded as such as we take a much more moderate view as the basis of legislation. Instead it's taken as fact by credulous legislators. All the time they keep being rewarded, they'll keep publishing.

Lengthy and favourable review of the 451 report on "Control and Community" (which they have very kindly sent to me as well). I agree with Henrik that it's an excellent report.

"This report from the Burton group does little to add clarity to the increasingly murky format debate." I have to agree; someone over there seems to have an axe to grind.

This is a very cool new feature that's due soon in OpenOffice.org and will provide the ability to generate ODF reports from SQL databases.

Even I was amazed by just how large the gap between Sun's contributions and the rest actually is. When you factor in things not in Debian (OpenJDK, OpenSolaris, NetBeans etc) the numbers double. Wow indeed.

I'm quoted priaisng the recent EC study on open source. It presents Microsoft's "Get The FUD" campaign with a cold, hard draught of unbiased basic research from a neutral party. I hope BECTA are reading this...

Glynn Moody with more statistics extracted from the EU report. This is going to be a goldmine of statistics.

Pamela notes that the EU report clearly identifies the fact that OpenOffice.org is a cost savings to almost everyone and that the "retraining" FUD is just that.
