Welcome to this year's 25th issue of DistroWatch Weekly! This issue focuses on some of the interesting events of the past week, including the war of words between the Linux and BSD communities, the failure of Lycoris as a business model, and the surprising revelation that the founder of Gentoo and one of the leading Linux personalities has accepted a job offer from Microsoft. We also wonder why SUSE does not participate in this year's LinuxTag, introduce a Debian sarge variant "with a human face", and tell you how to get the latest release of Linspire for free. The featured distribution of the week is INSERT, a tiny security and rescue live CD. Happy reading!

Conflict of interests of political party president in softwarepatents issue in the EU

25 June 2005 -- German web fora have been agitated by online discussions and news articles about apparent interest conflicts of Klaus Heiner Lehne MEP, who, as a coordinator of the European People's Party in the Legal Affairs Committee, strongly opposed all amendments that had any limiting effect on patentability or enforcability, and actively fought in JURI as well as in Berlin and elsewhere for widest possible patentability (which also means patentability of software). It now appears that Lehne works as a Brussels lobbying consultant for multinational corporations who are the main clients of one of the leading lawfirms for patent litigation in Europe, which is also itself involved in patent lobbying and closely connected to lobbying organisations.

A Newbie's Take on Xandros Deluxe Edition 3.0

Well my laptop's fan has died, and no way it seems for this newbie to take the laptop apart and get a new one put in. Luckily, a friend had a computer for sale, and I bought it. Tried to install Lycoris on it (which was on my laptop), but the install would not would not go work, could get the screen up initially, but not after the reboot. Originally, this computer has XP on it, and had a problem with no sound. Had a friend come over, and he reinstalled XP; still no sound. That was when I discovered that I had plugged the wires into the wrong spot on the computer. Well XP, upon start up, had one trojan and about 3 viruses on it. That was when I started to use knoppix 3.6, which was given to me. It worked fairly well, but I couldn't quite figure out how to install it. So had a system on which Lycoris wouldn't boot, knoppix on a live cd, and then Ubuntu arrived. Tried to live cd, it worked, so installed it. Liked it, and it worked nice; however, never got java to install among other things, so couldn't access some of my favorite sites.
