SCO is Distributing ELF Under the GPL Still. Yes. Now. Today.

I have some pictures to show you. They should knock your socks off. They should knock SCO's socks off, too, and then they should knock a huge chunk out of SCO's case. I'm quite serious.


And what, pray tell, might the moral of this story be? To me, it's that once again the GPL has proven itself to be the MVP of the SCO wars. I hope none of you ever forgets that someone had the foresight many years ago to plan for the SCO's of this world. Richard Stallman was villified, sneered at, mocked and attacked for designing the GPL back then.

Linux continues to make strides

New Linux Kernel 2.4 maintainer

While releasing Linux 2.4.33-rc3 Marcelo Tosatti has announced that in future Willy Tarreau will maintain the Linux kernel series 2.4. Four and a half years ago Mr. Tosatti had at the age of 18 taken over the position of maintainer of the kernel series 2.4 from Version 2.4.15 upwards from Linus Torvalds. However, since the publication of the kernel series 2.6 Linux 2.4 has -- not unexpectedly -- seen its importance diminish. Thus of late Kernel 2.4 has only received minor corrections, with new functions and drivers for up-to-date hardware in short supply. Witness the patches for 2.4.31 and 2.4.32, which were down to 25 and 54 kilobytes (bz2 format) respectively, whereas, for example, the packed patch for upgrading 2.6.16 to 2.6.17 alone came to almost six megabytes.

  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: GNU, Linux
Too many Linux image viewers are tinged with little annoyances -- they take too long to load, are slow to redraw the display, have limited format support, sport inconvenient controls -- so when you want to settle on one, inevitably there's something to make you utter feh! in general discontent. Good call -- feh is the name of a speedy little viewer that packs in a surprising number of features for its size.
