Microsoft blasts IBM in dirty ODF war

IBM is hijacking the debate over document standards to promote its desktop suites while refusing to look at the merits of each standard, according to Microsoft's general manager of interoperability and standards Tom Robertson. Big Blue is one of the main backers of the Open Document Format (ODF), while Microsoft supports Open XML. "IBM does not want Open XML to be standardised.

Software Review: Yellow Dog Linux 5 for PlayStation 3

Sony has been telling us for a while now that the PlayStation 3 is more than a game console, it is a computer. They tried this with the PS2 as well, when they released the Linux Kit for PS2, though that didn't make much of a splash. This time around, however, they built the PS3 with Linux in mind, and from the looks of things so far, Linux (any distribution) is going to have a lot to do on the PS3.

Open Source Network Configuration Management

Open source projects have had a significant impact in areas such as operating systems (Linux), databases (MySQL), web applications (Apache), and development tools (Eclipse). However, they have been slower in reaching other areas where open standards and community involvement can make an equally positive impact.

An “Unbreakable MySQL” is unlikely to materialise

In October, Oracle sent Red Hat’s stock plummeting on the announcement that it would offer cut-rate support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, under the “Unbreakable Linux” brand. Could Larry Ellison now be planning a repeat with “Unbreakable MySQL”? In an interview with Computer Business Review, MySQL CEO Mårten Mickos says the possibility that Oracle might offer support for its own branded version of the open source MySQL database is very real, but he downplays the potential threat. In fact, he adds, “I hope they do that”.

The danger of Daylight Saving Time

Comment If the fuss currently being made about Dubbya's attempt to save energy by making the US go to Daylight Saving Time a fortnight early reminds me of anything, it's the hype we had to endure eight years ago about the Millennium Bug.

Since last month's general availability of Microsoft Windows Vista, NVIDIA has introduced the Forceware 100.XX series.
