So Habey, the California-based subsidiary of Chinese firm NORCO Intelligent Technology, has seized on the opportunity to satisfy continuing Marshalltown demand by cranking out a “drop-in replacement” board backed by an assurance of long life-cycle support.

In those days, the Linux community was pretty much a private club for uber geeks. Newbies from the Windows world were not always made to feel welcome on the forums, especially if they were foolish enough to wonder aloud why Linux was so different from Windows.

Over at Popehat, there's a fascinating story about the depths to which patent trolls will go to "protect" their business models. The story involves Landmark Technologies, a troll we wrote about earlier this year for its rather aggressive take on patent trolling. Landmark holds patent 6,289,319: 'Automatic Business and Financial Transaction Processing System.'
