"VA Linux (ed: VA owns Newsforge) has done little with its pricey acquisition of Andover.Net and its popular geek sites other than to lump all of
Andover's holdings together VA's net properties together in a division called the Open Source Development
Network, or OSDN. To exploit OSDN's alleged potential, VA
has just hired Oracle's old Unix veep Richard French to run the operation." From LinuxGram.
