Let the puns begin…

Our good friends at The Register mention the launch of FLOSS – standing for Free/Libre/Open Source Software. FLOSS is an EU initiative to promote understanding of Open Source. Laudable perhaps, but the same cannot be said for the acronym. Quote: “FLOSS is a global phenomenon, particularly relevant in developing countries, and thus more knowledge on FLOSS outside Europe is needed.” Absolutely – but for those with less knowledge of IT it could be an ill-scoped initiative for dental care in the third world.

All the same, its good to see they’re cottoning on, and that they have the bit between their teeth.
