Google Google's Dan Kegel will be keynoting at the 2006 Southern California Linux Expo on Feb 12th. He will be giving a presentation titled "Why doesn't Johnny run Linux? Or, Overcoming Desktop Obstacles". Dan will go over some of the main issues identified by the recent Desktop Linux Survey and Desktop Linux Architects' meeting at OSDL, as well as his own list of issues, and what's being done to solve them. This is interesting with regard to El Reg's story on 'Goobuntu'. Elsewhere, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols doesn't believe the rumours.

Lots of things are insulting. Stealing other people's IP is insulting. MS stealing DOS from Seattle Computer is insulting.

Not to split hairs here but MS bought the 'quick and dirty' operating system from Tim Patterson.

Under false pretenses, hence the reason Seattle Computer sued Microsoft in 1980:

Thats not exactly stolen IP. Granted Seattle Computer may have been able to bargain for a better price had they known MS was going to sell to IBM.
