    Phoronix: Launchpad Is Now Fully Open-Source Software

    Last year on the 22nd of July we were covering the OSCON 2008 event. There really wasn't anything great about that year's open-source conference from O'Reilly (hence it's demise and conversion into LinuxCon in a different state), but Mark Shuttleworth was there and had keynoted at one of the evening events...

              Well, good on Canonical for open-sourcing it.
