Tortoise SVN and PayPal, voice controls for the desktop

Community Notebook: Projects


The free software market is a very special little biotope, and life within it can be pretty treacherous at times, as the Tortoise SVN developer learned thanks to PayPal. Voice controls for the desktop are a far more harmonious affair.

One thing that makes the open source world likeable is the number of small projects whose maintainers are motivated by the fun of programming rather than any commercial or strategic concerns, giving the users of free software a choice of a more or less infinite variety of specialist applications that come free of charge and that they can develop and improve themselves if the need arises.
