John Massey from Washington College talked about alternative Open Source trouble ticketing system. On his mac, he was running a virtual session with Ubuntu. On Ubuntu, he had GLPI running. On GLPI he was using a inventory module called OSC inventory. Together the two applications integrate together created a full featured trouble ticketing system that is linked with a asset database. John said this new system would help reduce typing for technicians.
In addition, to talking about the Open-source Trouble ticketing system, John gave an overview of the features of the Linux Media center. The Linux media center seems to be an over-the-top media application that combines both home automation, home security, and VOIP with a media center. The media center will work with X10 devices. It also allows you to access your digital media anywhere in the house.
John also talked about OpenMoko. These are the first large scale production of an open source phone.
