How Microsoft and Apple are screwing users on multimedia, how to avoid getting screwed ... and what Ogg files are and how to play them on your system

Sorry about the long title, but some things just piss me off so much. In this case, I want to make it clear that Microsoft isn't 100 percent to blame -- maybe 80 percent, since half the times that Microsoft tries to add value to their operating system, software companies that make money downstream by selling you stuff that would be made obsolete by that added value start bitching about it -- and the feds tell MS to back off. And while I'm no Microsoft apologist, the consumer often gets screwed in the process. But that doesn't have to happen. ... So now on to my point -- and I do have one. The state of multimedia -- audio and video -- on the Internet is a big hot mess.

Tux enters the Indy 500

You might think if someone were to mention Linux at the Indianapolis 500, they would be talking about Linux in an embedded system or powering a server tracking information about the race. You'd be wrong. Instead, there's a group seeking to fund an Indy racer in the name of Linux. The group was started by Ken Starks, also known as Helios, the founder of Linux marketing site Lobby4linux.com and author of the well-known Linux opinion site Blog of Helios. With the Tux 500 program, Starks, Bob Moore, and Ted Woerner aim to see to it that when the flag drops on the 2007 Indianapolis 500, a race car emblazoned with Linux decals will be roaring down the track.

[I think that tux500.com is already having its its intended effect and as the race gets closer..you watch! - Scott]
