Over the last few years, we've seen and heard some pretty visceral reactions from the Linux community to Microsoft-funded reports about Linux. Rightfully so - some of the "facts" in Microsoft's "Get the Facts" campaign have been outright false and most have been misleading at the very least.
This is one really, really cool and solid distribution. OK, before I go any further I should point out that SUSE 10.1 (code name: Agama Lizard) isn't actually released yet. I've been kicking the tires of the first SUSE 10.1 "Release Candidate."

Sun has released a new version of it's Project Looking Glass platform, LG3D LiveCD 2.4 Test 1. I was a bit excited to test this new release as it's been 6 months since 2.3 was released. I tried to imagine what might be awaiting during download, burn and boot. LG3D was so unique at the time of it's last release, but it has some real competition now in other's offering, such as those featuring XGL. What did Sun do to set themselves apart from the rest?

Raymond has just discovered that Microsoft is now selling a vector-graphics editor "Microsoft Expressions," which includes some of his open-sourced work.

While the world holds its breath waiting to see if Oracle is serious about entering the Linux market. Novell and Oracle staff are putting a zipper on their beaks about the matter. Oracle and Novell staff that we talk to just giggle, wink, and say no comment.
