Linux Powers Nokia 770

Gnu Tar "GNUTYPE_NAMES" Record Handling Directory Traversal ...

Oh, the emails you'll get...

  • Joel on Software; By Joel Spolsky (Posted by tuxchick on Nov 28, 2006 2:05 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial
A management consultant at Bain wrote me a nice email, that included the following sentence:

"Our team is conducting a benchmarking effort to gather an outside-in view on development performance metrics and best practice approaches to issues of process and organization from companies involved in a variety of software development (and systems integration)."

Microsoft, Novell, and now Ubuntu join to boost Apple and Debian

You've read more than enough already about how Novell and Microsoft signed an agreement that's supposed to help Novell sell Linux to Microsoft customers and help Microsoft customers integrate Linux -- as long as it's Novell Linux -- into their IT environments without fear of patent lawsuits. Part of the yammer was an open letter from Novell's CEO claiming that deal didn't really mean what you thought it did, followed by a statement from Microsoft that said Novell's CEO didn't really mean to say what he said or was wrong about some of it. Or something. Then Mark Shuttleworth jumped into the mess by offering a new, Microsoft-free home for openSUSE developers who didn't want to truck with Novell any longer because of its Microsoft deal.

A French Paradox

The Assemblée Nationale, an institution that is meaningful to any freedom-loving, truth and justice-seeking french citizen, chooses Linux, and OpenDocument on its desktops.
