The Myth of open source desktop

(via)
According to an old saying, the military always fights the last war. In World War I, both sides were relying on tactics that were obsoleted by the invention of the machine gun. In World War II, the French didn’t factor in the development of the bomber. In Vietnam, the American military tried to apply blitzkrieg-like tactics to a guerilla war. The Free Software community has a similar problem. Recent years have all begun with people asking, "Is this the year of the open source desktop?" (Or sometimes the Linux desktop if the journalist in question doesn’t actually know what Linux is.) The correct answer to this question is "who cares?"

RELAX NG Tutorial

RELAX NG is a simple schema language for XML, based on [RELAX] and [TREX]. A RELAX NG schema specifies a pattern for the structure and content of an XML document. A RELAX NG schema thus identifies a class of XML documents consisting of those documents that match the pattern. Two syntaxes have been defined for RELAX NG. The original syntax uses XML; with this syntax an RELAX NG schema is itself an XML document. Subsequently, a compact non-XML syntax has been defined. This document is a tutorial for RELAX NG version 1.0 using the XML syntax.
