Must-Have Firefox Extensions
As you can see from the above, Firefox extensions give people a lot of power over their browsing experience—indeed, a lot more than most anyone is used to having. But aside from the obvious minor advantages of time saved, extra utility and fun, it also can be a major force for good in the world. This is certainly the case with Free Access Plus, a filter-buster put out by an innovative developer going by the name of MohammedR. It's a notion that I can only hope someone in Hong Kong picks up on. Imagine Radio Free Europe in your browser and you get the idea. Free Access Plus circumvents state censorship of the Internet—particularly, it circumvents the Iranian government's content filters that block YouTube, del.icio.us, Flickr, Technocrati, FriendSter, LiveJournal, MySpace and a number of others. It also purports to circumvent similar filters imposed by other governments. It's not a perfect solution, and it doesn't work all the time, but it is successful some of the time, and it's exactly the kind of thing open source is best at—opening the world to all people, even when their governments think they know better.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
