Ruby is a single inheritance language, but it offers some advanced features that Java technology does not, such as closures (think anonymous inner classes on steroids) and mix-ins.

We've all heard the hype about how Sun and Google may someday, somehow, produce a version of StarOffice or that you'll access online through your browser instead of installing an office suite on your hard drive.

Meet the 21-yr-old Norwegian who defied Hollywood

  • Pittsburgh Post Gazette; By Steve Stecklow, The Wall Street Journal (Posted by tadelste on Oct 17, 2005 10:35 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story

Steve Stecklow writes "Jon Lech Johansen dropped out of high school after just one year. He lives alone most of the time, except when he stays with his parents in his native Norway. The 21-year-old doesn't drive, rarely goes to parties and says he has no close friends, except his father. He spends about nine hours a day in front of his computer screen.

"Yet this reclusive young Norwegian is the man who may be the entertainment industry's worst nightmare. Mr. Johansen, Hollywood executives claim, has done more than almost anyone in the world to ignite the explosion of movie piracy on the Internet, costing them billions of dollars in lost sales. He scoffs at that."

In our view, if Hollywood would provide the Linux software to watch the movies we bought as they do with Microsoft Windows and allow us to watch them on our personal computers, then maybe they would not have a problem. -Ed
