Stephen Hemminger sent me this gem from the British Computer Society "The trouble with open source" and I have to think that this is either a joke or written by someone so out of touch with today's technology market that the BCS editors published it so they could drive some website traffic.
Do you know who was responsible for telling Bill Gates about Linux for the first time? My dear husband offers up this question to aquaintances at regular intervals. Then, as they shake their heads, he replies:
Setting up a bibliography is hard enough, but misleading OOo examples don't help the process. Learn how to do it the right way.
The European Commission will propose on Wednesday that telecommunications operators and Internet service providers should be compensated for the extra costs of collecting and storing call data to help law enforcement officers track terrorists.
Open source projects steered by commercial organisations frequently reach a fork in the road. Unfortunately a fork may be looming in the development of Mambo.
A new distribution is in our midst and it clearly deserves some attention. Wolvix is a Linux distribution livecd based on Slax and is available as a 456M download. The site says, "It's a desktop oriented distribution made to fit the needs from regular to advanced desktop users." When the head developer wrote and asked me to take a look, I said, "sure." But I sure wasn't expecting quite what I found.
Although a majority of this preliminary information has been Microsoft Windows centric, today we'll be sharing with you some of the features that should be on the horizon for Linux users and the 1.0-8XXX drivers, one of which feature is the long awaited SLI support.
One of the IT guys accidentally discovered that the company's phone system, purchased second-hand a few months before, was running on a SCO Unix server. "I had no choice... I had to evacuate the building and shut down all operations!"

A critical input validation security vulnerability affecting Linux versions of Mozilla Firefox and the Mozilla Application Suite has been reported today. The flaw could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary commands on a victim's system. Fix already in place.
The sedentary art of software development and the extreme sports of kitesurfing, sailplaning and canyoning would appear to have little in common. However, both are examples of a new force that could eventually affect a far broader range of companies and industries: the power of users to shape how products are developed.
For SMBs who can scarcely afford to keep chasing software upgrades, open source is one option that they may want to look at (hosted applications is another) if they want to remain on the right side of the law while benefiting from legitimate software.
Trademarks are different from other types of intellectual property. A trademark can be a mark, a word, a color, a sound or some other "label" that functions as an indicator of the source of goods or services for which the trademark is used. When it no longer does so, the trademark is not doing its job.
Symantec Corp. noted that Firefox Web browser had more confirmed vulnerabilities than Internet Explorer. So does that mean that the Mozilla-based browser is less secure? Not exactly, according to security experts.

Opera Software will no longer force users of the free PC version of its Web browser, Opera, to view advertising banners.
Stroll around a Linux business conference with John H. Terpstra and you'll hear him greeted as "Mr. Samba."
