Does the world really need OLPC?

Shelley the Republican presents a masterly dissection of the lies and falsehoods of the Democ-rat Liberal Satanist Linux agenda. OLPC seems to be an insidious atheist European plot to give American intellectual property to third-world countries. Fortunately, it can't compete against the Christian Windows Vista (TM) laptop.

In Search of Stupidity

  • Computerworld; By Merrill R. Chapman (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on Mar 25, 2007 11:20 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
As noted in Chapter 2 of this book, the release of the Altair microcomputer in 1975 heralded the beginning of the modern high-tech industry. But observers of the period also believe there was more to the Altair than just chips; the unit seemed to emit a mysterious elixir that entered the body of computer aficionados worldwide and sparked a strange war of the soul that has raged in the body of the computer geekdom for more than three decades. The war is between those who advocate for free software and open, patentless technology available to all and those who believe in making substantial sums of money from selling proprietary software and the vigorous protection of intellectual property. It’s the Kumbayahs vs. the Capitalists.

Applying "The Art of War" to Open Source, Linux and BSD

Ask most people who have made the switch to a libre software product like Linux or BSD and they'll tell you that we're in a fight with Microsoft and everything that the closed-source world represents. It's not just us - Microsoft certainly thinks we're in a battle as well. Senior Microsoft leadership are actively engaged in spreading Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt to undermine the public confidence in Linux. Lawsuits have been filed over "stolen code" in the Linux kernel. Thinly-veiled "IP infringement" threats have been made to businesses running Linux. Massive marketing campaigns are being waged to confuse the true Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of Windows and Linux products.

For years now we have been accustom to seeing Tyan motherboards in some of the best workstations and servers, but recently they have been introducing a couple FlexATX/microATX motherboards. The first microATX Tyan motherboard we had reviewed was the Tomcat i845GV S3098, which was about two years ago, while earlier this year we featured a preview of the Tomcat i945GM S3095. Now in hand today we will be reviewing the Tyan Toledo i965R S5180. The Toledo i965R is a FlexATX solution with an LGA-775 socket, one PCI Express x16 slot, two DDR2 sockets, and is powered by Intel's Q965 + ICH8 Chipset. The Tyan i965R motherboard also supports Intel's Core 2 Duo processors.

Community Feedback

The GPL version 2 was written as a license to protect user freedoms that had been eroded by the increasingly closed attitudes of software designers, developers, and distributors ("What Will Drive Open Source?). It was Richard Stallman's intent, with v2, to create a barrier to these attitudes. The GNU GPLv3 is no different.

How To Revive An Old PC With Linux

What do you do with an old computer? Say, a 386-generation PC running Windows 98 that hadn't been patched in years, with a 20-Gbyte hard drive most likely infected with all manner of viruses, spyware, and other maladjusted programs? Sure, it could go to the landfill, or you might be able to get a tax deduction from donating it to a local school. Or, using a Linux-based operating system, you could turn it into a functional desktop, browser, and e-mail client, and put it back to work.
