US group says Microsoft ‘pretending’ on earnings

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.

Mozilla Thunderbird Announces Tabbed Message Browsing

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.

HOWTO Install FreeNX Server on SUSE 10

  • Mad Penguin; By Adam Doxtater (Posted by VISITOR on Dec 11, 2005 5:50 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: SUSE
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!

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.

Technology war in India just got rocking

  • Daily News & Analysis; By Jayalakshmi Venugopal (Posted by tadelste on Dec 11, 2005 1:49 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: Microsoft
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.

Free German Wikipedia DVD

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.
