Look ma, I’m on TV

I’m in nouvo (in french) for a subject on open source. They talk about OsiriX, an open source medical images viewer, and asked me a few questions about the commercial aspects of open source.

I spoke about the 70% market share (see netcraft) of the Apache HTTP server to stress the fact that everybody who uses the web uses open source today, even though many still think that computers=windows.

Although I don’t know much about medical imaginng, OsiriX looks like a really powerful piece of software. It’s also running against fairly expensive commercial packages, so it will be interesting to see how it evolves and how the market reacts to it.

If you’re in Switzerland you can catch the show on TV today at 1:10 PM on TSR1, or Monday evening on TSR2 at 10:55 PM. But of course the videos are available on the web at the above address.

Gotta call my mom to remind her of the show ;-)

    Installed real-player (what a ugly pice of software) to view you and the streaming quality was still bad. But I think in some years everbody will know whats open source (so you don’t have to talk about the basics of open source) ;-) But anyway there wasn’t so much left about your talk about apache. I’m happy to understand a big part of the interview even it was on french.

    Well done, Bertrand! I was trying to watch the latest news, and look who’s there on nouovo…
    I think you managed to explain the basics of os in a clear and simple way. This kind of evangelism is very positive for the open source movement. Thanks.
