GoodBye Windows XP Forever and Ever

  • OSWeekly.com; By Matt Hartley (Posted by gsh on Apr 20, 2007 12:08 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Microsoft
It's actually kind of funny how the news of Windows XP being phased out was received by most people. It seems that most users are concerned that they will be completely out of luck when it comes to obtaining XP should they wish to avoid Vista for the time being. To these concerned souls, I would point out that I can still find copies of Windows 2000 Pro incase I want to avoid XP and Vista.

Taxed Net Sales Are Perfectly Fine

  • CoolTechZone.com; By Gundeep Hora (Posted by gsh on Apr 19, 2007 8:36 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
Now, I’m not 100 percent in favor of taxed net sales. After all, one of the great benefits of shopping through online retailers is to find great deals and avoid taxes simultaneously. That’s an absolutely ingenious concept that has allowed online shopping to grow at an amazingly fast rate. But things are looking gloomy, and we might as well brace ourselves for the inevitable: taxed net sales.

Get things done with ThinkingRock

The Getting Things Done (GTD) method of time management is one of the simplest methods I've found, but until recently I hadn't had much luck in finding any Linux-compatible applications to help me stick to using GTD. A few weeks ago I stumbled on ThinkingRock, a Java-based app for following the GTD methodology, and tried it out. I've been pleased with its simplicity and ease of use.

Linux: ZFS, Licenses and Patents

A recent discussion on the lkml examined the possibility of a Linux implementation of Sun's ZFS. It was pointed out that the file system is released under the GPL-incompatible CDDL, and that Sun has filed numerous patents to prevent ZFS from being reverse engineered. Max Yudin pointed out, "according to Jeff Bonwick's blog Sun issued 56 patents on ZFS, but I have no idea what they patented. Sorry, binary compatible ZFS reimplementation with GPL license might not be legal." David Litwin noted that he had been told by a ZFS developer to talk to Linux developers to see about getting non-GPL'd code included with the kernel. Theodore T'so replied, "that was totally useless answer from the ZFS developers. What he should have told you is to contact Sun management, since they are the only ones who can decide whether or not to release ZFS under a GPL license, and more importantly, to give a patent license for any patents they may have filed in the course of developing ZFS."

The recent 0.8 release added a kcontrol module for setting up Wine and improvements to the power manager.
