Time to compile the naughty list: Who isn't playing nice with Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| Here are just a few of the miscreants 
| mentioned, who either clearly stated they 
| donât support Linux or any browser other 
| than Internet Explorer; whose services can 
| be used, but not necessarily initiated by 
| any other than a Windows system; or who are 
| just generally difficult to get along with:
|     * Citibank
|     * AT&T
|     * Illinois government sites
|     * Verizon DSL
|     * EarthLink DSL
|     * Juno/NetZero
|     * Juniper Networks
|     * UPS CampusShip
|     * Department of Defense systems (U.S.)


Intel Divulges Information on TRIM for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Since that post, I got in contact with 
| Intel who clarified a few of the points 
| surrounding the issue of using TRIM under 
| Linux. Sure, this is a topic that bores 
| most people, but as a full-time user of the 
| OS, I care about it quite a bit, and I'm 
| sure a lot of others out there are in a 
| similar situation as me. And as frustrating 
| as I've found tracking down the information 
| to be, I'm hoping this investigative 
| sleuthing will affect a lot more than just 
| me.



China bans YouTube again

| The Chinese government has again blocked access to YouTube just over a year
| after it shut off access to the site for hosting footage of the Tibet
| protests.
| China's firewall allows sporadic access to services like YouTube, but access
| was shut off on Monday. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the Chinese
| government was not afraid of the internet - China has more people online than
| any other nation.


Facebook encourages ISP customer protests over Phorm

,----[ Quote ]
| Facebook's privacy chief today urged customers of BT, Carphone Warehouse and
| Virgin Media who are unhappy about their ISP's plans to work with Phorm in
| monitoring and profiling web use to "make their feelings known".
| Chris Kelly was speaking at the e-Crime Congress in London this morning.
| Asked for a response to the open letter Facebook received this week from the
| Open Rights Group, he declined to say whether the firm would insist its
| traffic is not intercepted.
