Moglen: SUSE Vouchers Have No Expiration Date! (Unlike MS's Patent Bullying)

Eben Moglen is saying that the SUSE vouchers Microsoft is distributing have no expiration date! I didn't know this. It's huge. This is, according to Moglen's remarks, another defense to any patent infringement claim by Microsoft, and it may well bring that campaign to a screeching halt. Here's why. Someone, Moglen says, is bound to turn a voucher it got from Microsoft in after GPLv3 goes into effect and GPLv3 code is being distributed, and at that moment Microsoft comes under its terms. And that should mean the end of Microsoft's ability to successfully sue anybody over its alleged patents allegedly in Linux, or to phrase it more exactly, it provides a probable defense to all Linux users and vendors, not just Novell's paying customers, if Microsoft does sue.

How To Install VMware Server On A CentOS 5.0 Desktop

  • HowtoForge; By Falko Timme (Posted by falko on May 20, 2007 5:38 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Red Hat
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions on how to install VMware Server on a CentOS 5.0 desktop system. With VMware Server you can create and run guest operating systems (virtual machines) such as Linux, Windows, FreeBSD, etc. under a host operating system. This has the benefit that you can run multiple operating systems on the same hardware which saves a lot of money, and you can move virtual machines from one VMware Server to the next one (or to a system that has the VMware Player which is also free).

What is a distro?

I sat through an interesting debate recently on the Austin Linux Group mailing list over the meaning of the term "distro." Some LUG members felt "distro" implies Linux, while others took a wider view, claiming it could be any one of several possible platforms, including OpenSolaris.

[Technically, a distribution is any software package, since software is, after all, "distributed", not sold. You can get a distribution of KDE or of Gnumeric or a given programming language or library. - dcparris]

Three Scenarios For How Microsoft's Open Source Threat Could End

Implicit in its deal with Novell is the subtlety that Microsoft products may be violating the patents of other technology companies. Says Jim Zemlin, executive director of the Linux Foundation: "Microsoft has to be careful about what it starts because it doesn't know where it will end." We don't either. But here are three plausible scenarios.
