Free Software or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Computer

,----[ Quote ]
| Nobody wants to be feel helpless, to have 
| increased stress, or have their freedom taken 
| away. I care about free software because I 
| value not just my own time and independence 
| but that of my friends, family and customers. 
| If you feel the same, try a 100% free software 
| operating system, try a replacement for your 
| billing software, or communicate with your 
| proprietary software vendor about why they 
| don't publish their software under a free 
| software license. You have a choice.

12 Most Devastating PC Viruses and Worms of All Time

,----[ Quote ]
| 12. Nimda
| Nimda is a computer worm, isolated in September 2001. It is also a file
| infector. It quickly spread, eclipsing the economic damage caused by past
| outbreaks such as Code Red. Multiple propagation vectors allowed Nimda to
| become the Internetâs most widespread virus/worm within 22 minutes. Due to
| the release date, some media quickly began speculating a link between the
| virus and Al Qaeda, though this relationship ended up being untrue. Nimda
| affected both user workstations (clients) running Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, or
| 2000 and servers running Windows NT and 2000. The worm's name spelled
| backwards is "admin".
