Issue #40 of the column is now online and it can - as usual - be found
on the GNU Webpage and its mirrors. Otherwise just follow the links at
the end of this posting.
Georg's Brave GNU World is a monthly column which is being released simultaneously in eight languages (English, German, French, Japanese, Spanish, Korean, Portugese and Italian) on the web and printed in the German "Linux-Magazin," the "Linux Magazine" U.K., the "Microsoftware" (largest computer magazine in Korea) and the "Linux Magazine France." This makes it the monthly column with the widest distribution worldwide afaik. If you would like to receive mail about new issues directly, you can subscribe to the "Brave GNU World" announcement mailinglist. Just send mail to with "subscribe" in the *body*. The mailinglist is only for announcements that are related to the "Brave GNU World" and is of very low volume (between 1 and 2 mails a month). The 40th issue covers the following topics: * Minkowsky [ Managing time-space ] * Webminstats [ Monitor your systems over the web ] * LinCompta [ Professional analytical accounting done with Free Software ] * GNUnet [ A decentralized, anonymized, crypted network ] * Gambas [ Almost Visual Basic... but Free Software ] * Cook [ Another interesting Make replacement ] * Free Software for Europe [ How Free Software can benefit Europe ] This column intends to provide a forum for all GNU maintainers, friends and associates and I am always open to suggestions. So if you * have questions about the GNU Project that might be of general interest * have a GNU Project and would like to improve its profile * would like to start a GNU Project you are looking for people to start it with * think something doesn't get the publicity it deserves * would like to see something made public send mail to: "Brave GNU World " This column is for everyone with an interest in Free Software, so don't hesitate to contact me if your project is under a Free Software license (http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/license-list.html) and you'd like to see it introduced here.
