"It was wild idealism, really, around the notion that software should be developed communally and distributed freely that spawned Linux more than a decade ago. It's an ideal that has resonated up the chain of command to become a major disruptive force in the business world. While much is made of the threat to Windows, the Linux operating system and accompanying open-source movement threaten to put other decades-old IT mainstays, notably Unix and RISC-based processors, out to pasture. As the new products and big ideas swirling around LinuxWorld last week show,
"Version 2.6.12 of the Linux kernel is likely to include packet filtering that will work with IPv6, the latest version of the Internet Protocol."
Gates: 'Microsoft created the PC industry'
Jo Best contends that M$ built the pc industry. Gates surely agrees and stated as much during that interview with Peter Jennings reported here a few days ago. Best offers reasons for this opinion and the comments...
Joel Strauch, of PCWorld, has written an interesting article on the proliferation of broadband connectivity in South Korea. He says, "When my wife and I arrived here last fall to teach English, we stepped into perhaps the most Internet-crazed country in the world. What tipped us off? Well, one example is that South Korea has a high school where students train in the game Starcraft like Texas high schoolers practice football."
Paris Hilton's address book, famously kept on a T-Mobile Sidekick, has been popping up all over the internet after someone managed to figure out her password.
For 20 years, Microsoft Corp. has made the software on which hackers feast. Now, after three years of planning and several acquisitions, it's sending shudders through the industry as it prepares to move into the expanding market for security.

As everyone has heard PCLinuxOS pre-8.1 was released officially yesterday. And in response we have posted our little screenshot presentation of this historical event. Please join me...
The Washington Post is reporting predictions of bad times ahead, weather- and atmosphere-wise. Quoting Loretta Mickley of Harvard University's Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences, "If this model is correct, global warming would cause an increase in difficult days for those affected by ozone pollution, such as people suffering with respiratory illnesses like asthma and those doing physical labor or exercising outdoors," referring to a computer model used by climate scientists to predict weather and climate changes.
Spurred by the removal Carly Fiorina as CEO of Hewlett-Packard, Amy Joyce of the Washington Post discusses the double standard women in business face. Barbara Gault states, "Women face a double standard in that if they are too accommodating and feminine, they are seen as weak. Too aggressive, it brings up negative associations for a lot of people..."
This post recounts the experiences of a newbie's first install and use of a Linux distribution. It seem aimed at the windows user, but a nice heart-warming little read. I think he hits on a good point, one which I tried to make to a co-worker just tonight, Linux isn't just commandline anymore.
