CERN Ditches Microsoft to 'Take Back Control' with Open Source Software - OMG! Ubuntu!



The European Organisation for Nuclear Research, better known as CERN, and also known as home of the Large Hadron Collider, has announced plans to migrate away from Microsoft products and on to open-source solutions where possible.

Why? Increases in Microsoft license fees.

Microsoft recently revoked the organisations status as an academic institution, instead pricing access to its services on users. This bumps the cost of various software licenses 10x, which is just too much for CERN’s budget.

WWW 30th Birthday Playlist


This morning (12 March 2019) Sir Tim Berners-Lee returned to CERN for a panel discussion as part of his 30-hour journey to mark the 30th anniversary of his original proposal for the World Wide Web. As he left, CERN gave him a gift of a playlist from 1989, recorded onto an audio cassette tape and presented together with a Sony Walkman.

Here's the playlist:

* Like a Prayer / Madonna
* She Drives Me Crazy / Fine Young Cannibals
* Desire / U2
* Devil Inside / INXS
* Don't Worry Be Happy / Bobby McFerrin
* Englishman in New York / Sting
* Got My Mind Set on You / George Harrison
* Peek-a-Boo / Siouxsie and the Banshees
* Where is My Mind? / Pixies
* The Race / Yello
* Eternal Flame / The Bangles
* Belfast Child / Simple Minds
* Like a Prayer / Madonna

Browsen wie der erste Mensch im Web

Das #Web wird 30, zumindest die Idee dazu. Tim Berners Lee, der Erfinder, war zu jener Zeit mit einer NeXt-Workstation unterwegs, das Feinste vom Feinsten. Darauf entwickelte er letztlich das WWW und den ersten #Browser. Der funktionierte durchaus noch anders als heutige Browser. Vor allem war er auch zum Editieren von Webseiten gedacht. Es war sozusagen ein browsendes Textverarbeitungsprogramm. Am #Cern hat man diesen ersten Browser nun nachgebaut - und zwar so, dass er als Anwendung in einem modernen Browserfenster läuft. Link siehe unten.

Man kann damit tatsächlich sogar im Web herumsurfen. Dazu klickt man links in der Navigation auf Document und dann auf Open from full document reference. Dann könnt ihr eine vollständige HTTP-Adresse eingeben. Aber wirklich vollständig, also mit http:// davor. Und nicht mit https:// - so was gabs noch nicht damals. Natürlich auch kein CSS, kein JavaScript, kein SVG - von den Webseiten, die ihr aufruft, werdet ihr nur nacktes HTML sehen. Macht aber Spaß :-)
