Linux / Unix
GPL, MPL (Free Software)
i-MSCP (internet Multiserver Control Panel) is an open source project founded to build a Multi Server Control and Administration Panel. This Control Panel is usable by any Internet Service Provider (ISP).
The i-MSCP Phoenix release is a fork of the open source ispCP project. Because part of the i-MSCP developer team were core members of the ispCP project, there was created a way to migrate from it.
i-MSCP Phoenix has a dual license. A large part of the old VHCS code (still part of iSPCP base code) is licensed under the Mozilla Public License. All new code, and submissions to i-MSCP Phoenix are licensed under the GNU General Public License (V2). To solve this license conflict there is work on a complete rewrite for a completely GPL2 licensed i-MSCP.

The Malkin video now has a prominent position on the frontpage of QubeTV and is described as "Banned by YouTube". The site has been compared to Conservapedia, a Christian conservative alternative to Wikipedia because, among other reasons, they both criticize a perceived bias and counter it with an explicit bias.
Stand-up self-described socialist comedian Lewis Black has discussed QubeTV during one of his appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In particular, he has pointed out that a large number of the videos on the website are in fact links to YouTube, stating [read more...]
