The head of a US tax-research group has accused software firm Microsoft of “pretending it makes all of its money in Ireland" in order to pay minimal tax. Attention has focused on how some multinational firms use Ireland to book large profits, which are taxed at the Irish corporation-tax rate of 12.5 per cent, rather than 35 per cent in the United States. Microsoft and other multinationals have said they are fully tax compliant. However, Bob McIntyre, the director of Washington-based Citizens for Tax Justice (CTJ), said his group has had concerns about the tax regime in Ireland for some time. “Everyone knows there is an issue here,” he said. “It doesn't just involve Microsoft and Ireland.

Firefox 1.5, the first major upgrade to the Mozilla Foundation's popular open-source browser in a year, brings new features and increased speed, making what was a very good product even better.
Mozilla has released an updated patch for Mozilla Thunderbird for tabbed message browsing. Developed by Myk Melez, the feature allows users to right-click a message header and select "Open Message in New Tab" from the context menu.
Users occasionally want to keep a particular message open while browsing their mail, open multiple messages simultaneously for quicker reading of messages over a slow network connection, or otherwise access multiple messages at the same time. Thunderbird currently supports this with its "open message in new window" feature, which displays one or more messages in separate windows.
Not long ago, I reviewed SUSE Linux 10 and found that they had included the latest version of FreeNX (a free version of NoMachine's NX Server) on the installation media. I'd never really tried FreeNX at that point but had heard some good things about it, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Well, once it was installed and working I have to say I was immediately impressed by how simple it was to setup and how well (read: fast) it performed over a WAN connection. I was literally able to get my desktop at home from anywhere else in the world and get near-local speed. Normally, working on a remote system is alright until you need to type in any shape or form. There was almost no delay from the time I'd press a key to the time it would show up on the screen. This is what sold me on FreeNX and prompted me to offer to write a HOWTO on the topic. I was overwhelmed with email from our readers asking that I write it... so here we are!

Already Firefox 1.5, the latest incarnation of the popular alternative browser, has had exploit code released which takes advantage of a bug in the history.dat file, which stores information from Web sites users have visited. Basically, using an overly long topic of a page can cause the browser to crash each time it is started after going to such a page. According to the Internet Storm Center, it is not possible to start Firefox normally until the history.dat file is manually erased.

"It's something customers have asked for."
Calm but determined, Shai Agassi had a message for analysts who gathered earlier this week in Las Vegas: "The database layer as we know it will go through radical shifts."
Agassi, president of SAP‘s product and technology group and a member of its executive board, also sat down with reporters, including TechWeb‘s Laurie Sullivan, to explain the NetWeaver platform, composite applications projects, database commoditization, and the $1-billion-per-quarter for services the German software company expects to generate.

BANGALORE: "Open all the windows, as he shuts the door,'' chorused a rock group as Microsoft monarch Bill Gates made his entry at Friday night's meeting of developers in Bangalore. It looked as if Microsoft was finally responding with a rock composition of its own to the musical offensive ``Linux Can'' that has been at play at the conferences of it's traditional rival Linux.
Microsoft denies it, but, finally, the battle of technology is being fought to the tune of rock at Bangalore.
While Delhi's rock band Parikrama has performed for Microsoft, Bangalore's Phenom has done the job for Linux. Microsoft, which follows a license-fee-based model where the source code is not given to users and Linux, which works on free open source software, have been at loggerheads. Microsoft may have lost its battle against open source software in Germany and Brazil, but the fight is still on in India.
German publisher Directmedia is taking thousands of Wikipedia entries and images and putting them on DVD and making them available in print. The DVD is available as a free download, a 7.5GB ISO image (which of course you can burn directly to DVD, if you have a dual layer burner and DL media). An earlier DVD version released in spring had just 2.7GB in comparison. That version however, was found to contain over 100 copyrighted articles; when noticed, Directmedia replaced the DVD image.
The popular French Linux distribution has made it back from the financial edge and is now pushing hard into the enterprise and desktop markets.

A group of enthusiastic KDE users and developers met last week at the FOSS.IN conference in Bangalore, one of the largest Free and Open Source Software meetings in the world, to combine their efforts in various regions of the country under a common banner and build a central platform for all things KDE in India. Along with spreading KDE awareness in India, especially in colleges and with local businesses, KDE.in has a few more practical goals. KDE.in will provide Indian KDE developers and users with a community hub to coordinate with and support each other.
"Ok, so you know there is a beta of Google Earth floating on the net. I’m sure you would love to play with it. Wait no longer my children. A VERY MYSTERIOUS person sent an email to our tipline with the download link," UNEASYsilence reports.
MacDailyNews Note: We have run this application on Max OS X 10.4.3. It seemed to work well enough in our brief testing. We did have to hit "Command-." on the first run to stop the application from attempting to connect to the Google server, as it seemed to hang there forever. Subsequent runs of the app. worked without needing to hit "Command-."
