ogmaciel.com: I want to believe that I have done a decent job at juggling all the tasks I have been assigned, even if it means to do my school assignments while I eat lunch, as I did today! The assignment for my database design class consisted in turning some user requirements of a pretend dog trainning business into a real entity relational diagram.
heise-online.co.uk: Matt Zimmerman, CTO of Canonical, is unhappy with Greg Kroah-Hartman, one of the Linux kernel maintainers, because of Kroah-Hartman's keynote at the Linux Plumbers Conference.

freesoftwaremagazine.com: Amarok sure inspires a lot of KDE-envy for Gnome users.

mdzlog.wordpress: As the opening keynote at the Linux Plumbers Conference, Greg Kroah-Hartman delivered a talk entitled “The Linux Ecosystem, where do you fit in it?“ There were, let’s say, a few elements of it which I found objectionable. The central issue, of course, was that he devoted a large portion of the talk to showing that Canonical contributes fewer patches to the Linux kernel than many other companies.
