Hasta la Vista, part 2: MSFT Titanic

  • VNUNet; By Hans Bezemer (Posted by theBeez on Sep 10, 2006 10:32 AM EDT)
In the last part of this series, I mentioned how Jim Allchin came in, saved the day and everything was hunky dory again. Wrong. The story that "Windows was broken" came out in September, 2005. The same month a blog was published about the up and coming reorganization of Microsoft, stating that is was "just just shuffling the chairs on the deck of the Titanic".

What’s wrong with Free Beer?

  • Free Software Magazine; By Bridget Kulakauskas (Posted by dcparris on Sep 10, 2006 8:37 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Community
Freedom. It’s such a loaded term. It represents so many things: the ability to do stuff unfettered, letting the press say whatever they want, invading foreign nations to pass the time, a glorious ideal. I started thinking about it recently because there’s a furniture chain in Australia called “Freedom” and I always get a kick out of signs in shopping centres with arrows that direct shoppers to the food court, toilets, and freedom... “Free” also means lots of things. Free as in libre... Free as in beer... Interestingly enough, they aren’t as different as you might think! In fact, there is a new kind of beer sweeping Denmark, and it is like free software BUT BEER! How fun!

Sorry, but you must call Microsoft to fix link glitch under IE

Dear Nick: Why does my computer seem to lock up whenever it tries to open a new link? For instance, I tried to open your profile from RNews, but instead I received the "Not responding" message and my computer sat there doing nothing for about a minute before it recovered and stayed at the RNews page from which I started. I cannot open a new link from anywhere I go. Help! Frustrated ...

[If you support Windows users in your daily operations, you'll want to read this one. It's a tech question for which the response is, "the fix might cost you". At least the tech editor recommends a serious alternative solution - Firefox. - dcparris]

Linux on laptops

Although most modern laptops nowadays tend to scare people off with an ugly “Designed for Windows XP” mark, it does not mean that alternative operating systems, like GNU/Linux cannot be installed and function equally well.

New SEO Product for FireFox Browsers Presented by SeoQuake

Nowadays, search engine optimization appears to be the main factor for successful site promotion. At the same time, it seems quite difficult to pin-point efficacy of an SEO strategy. The present SEO software products are not easy to use or cheap. What’s more, they barely fit the optimizer’s needs. Fortunately, today one can take advantage of free software that gives a unique opportunity to get all data required for analysis of search output with one mere click.
