jeu, 01/31/2019 - 09:00

As an attorney running an open source program office for a Fortune 500 corporation, I am often asked to look into a product or component where there seems to be confusion as to the licensing model.

Tips and tricks for using CUPS for printing with Linux

mar, 01/29/2019 - 09:02

Did you ever try to configure a printer on a GNU/Linux desktop distribution at the end of the '90s? Or even before?
