Microsoft "In his keynote at OSCON, Microsoft General Manager of Platform Strategy Bill Hilf announced that Microsoft is submitting its shared source licenses to the Open Source Initiative. This is a huge, long-awaited move. It will be earthshaking for both Microsoft and for the open source community if the licenses are in fact certified as open source licenses. Microsoft has been releasing a lot of software as shared source (nearly 650 projects, according to Bill). If this is suddenly certified as true open source software, it will be a lot harder to draw a bright line between Microsoft and the open source community." In addition, Microsoft has launched a new website where it details its relationship with open source.

Mikrofart is a disaster. Their new operating system is such a mess, that people are being forced to use the the 6 year old antiquated Windows XP system. Since when was it acceptable for your computer to run 6 year old software???

Vista is out? *YAWN*

Wake me up when Service pack 2 for Windows 7 has been released.
