I think this may have been mentioned on Slashdot recently, but it deserves mention here as well. The SCO vs. IBM lawsuit isn't anything new, but this article does the best job I've seen yet of presenting all arguments against the SCO lawsuit in a tidy, professional manner. Definitely worth a read.
I recently came across this cheat-sheet-style site, and it seems to be really well done. It's geared towards Red Hat Linux, but most of the guides can be applied to other distributions as well. Check it out.
Sorry for the lack of updates over the past couple weeks, just been busy. To kick things off again, I've uploaded pictures from my Ole Miss graduation ceremony. You can see them in the Photo Gallery.
In a move to undercut the Xbox, Sony has decided to lower its price by $20. I'm sure that Xbox and Gamecube prices will be lowered sooner because of this move.
Despite earlier claims that IP-violating code was not found in the kernel, only the periphery apps and components, SCO is now claiming that they have indeed code in the Linux kernel that violates their agreement with IBM. As usual, they refuse to cite examples.
Chief SCO jackass Darl McBride goes on to say, "We're finding ... cases where there is line-by-line code in the Linux kernel that is matching up to our UnixWare code... We're finding code that looks likes it's been obfuscated to make it look like it wasn't UnixWare code - but it was."
Oh yes, of course it was. Nevermind the fact that both SystemV UNIX (which SCO owns) and Linux are BOTH derivitives of earlier versions of UNIX. Do you think it just might be possible that, somewhere along the line, a Linux developer came up with a similar idea for doing something as the SystemV developers?
