techgage.com: Once in a while I'll receive a bit of flack for whatever I ranted about, and one perfect example of this was with regards to last week's posting, "iMagic OS: Commercial Linux Distro Gone Wrong". After posting, I received a rather straight-forward e-mail from Carlos La Borde, the CEO of iMagic OS.

blogs.zdnet.com: The folks over at the Linux Foundation were happy to announce today that MIPS Technologies has joined the group. Fair enough.
