|=| Jean Tourrilhes "of the Linux Wireless LAN Howto project took some time to
    answer a few questions from members at LinuxQuestions.org[2]. Among some of
    the more interesting commments was his pick of best and worst
    Open Source friendly vendors ..." [SlashDot][3]. TuxMobil.org has
    a new page about Mobile Adhoc Networks - MANETs with Linux[4].

|=| O2PosTrack[6] is a console-based C++ application for retrieving
    position information from a mobile phone as provided by the (German) O2
    mobile phone company. It runs on Linux and Mac OS X, has configurable
    output streams (CSV file, GNU-Plot data files, etc.) and should work with
    all GSM-compatible mobile phones connected via serial link (e.g. IR or
    USB-to-serial converter). More GPS software for Linux is listed
    at TuxMobil.org[6].
