Seems pclinuxos has been up to their old tricks, but this time they couldn't outrun the reach of MICE. It appears their domain has been seized by the Microsoft Intellectual Property Police and visitors there are subjected to the familiar "seized by authorities" announcement.

Pondering FOSS foundations

In the case of the Document Foundation, the LibreOffice project needed an independent, solid and meritocratic entity dedicated to support it. In other terms, the OpenOffice.org community wanted to be its own boss and stop relying on corporate – or even third party – good will.
