Theodore Ts'o: Proud to be a Googler 

,----[ Quote ]
| I have my own opinion regarding the IETFâs 
| decision to meet in Beijing, since as weâve 
| seen with the Search Engine industryâs attempt 
| to accommodate the Chinese, engagement doesnât 
| necessarily always lead to openness and 
| goodness.  


Ted T'so moves to Google

,----[ Quote ]
| Theodore "Ted" T'so has moved to Google, 
| leaving his position as Linux Foundation's 
| Chief Technology Officer. The news came in a 
| blog posting from T'so entitled "Proud to be a 
| Googler" where T'so said "Although I obviously 
| had nothing to do with Googleâs decision vis-
| a-vis China, having only started working there 
| for a week, I was definitely glad to see it 
| and it made me proud to be able to say that I 
| work there." He is well known within the Linux 
| community as one of the core Linux developers 
| and maintainer of the Ext3 and Ext4 file 
| systems.



The Power of Perception

,----[ Quote ]
| A campaign featuring Jerry Seinfeld may well succeed in changing this and
| convincing consumers to run Vista. But will it change the perceptions of IT
| professionals in large organizations? I wouldn't bet against it. We all like
| to think we are rational agents, but in reality we are all still susceptible
| to advertising â even Microsoft's.
| Let's take a look at the Linux market. Linux has many things going for it,
| yet it makes up just 13.4 percent of total server revenue. (Don't forget,
| many servers run Linux but don't generate revenue for vendors.)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
