Legal So, Google has finally officially responded (thanks for hosting, Engadget) to Oracle's patent and copyright infringement lawsuit against the search giant's Android mobile operating system. Apart from boatloads of pages on how Google pretty much denies any and all claims, there's a lot of interesting stuff in there - stuff that doesn't seem to bode well if the courts do decide Google is infringing Oracle's patents. It also makes it crystal clear that anyone who values Free and open source software should avoid Oracle products like the plague.

"Now that appears to be a Meego variant "finding the plot again" in my view.


OOps, I spoke too soon it would appear.

Smeegol offers the latest Banshee’s powerful music player


Note to self - lessons to be learned:

1. Meego has still lost the plot.

2. Don't trust Phoronix reports.

You are replying to a story about Oracle suing Android over reimplenting bits of Java, and you are more concerned about whether MeeGo includes Mono to run a music playing application. And you talk about 'losing the plot'?
