Torvalds vents about religious extremism

| I remember more than a few myself. Once I 
| wrote an analysis that carried the 
| headline, âIs Linus Killing Linux?â
| It was hyperbole, of course, and designed 
| to provoke interest in a story that 
| examined who or what might become the 
| controlling âmanagerâ of the Linux kernel â 
| or which commercial interest might try to 
| hijack the code. [This was before the SCO 
| lawsuit.]


What I like about the iPad

| Over at ZDnet, Dana Blankenhorn tries to 
| concoct some scenario where Google opening 
| up a codec turns into an antitrust 
| violation. Iâm not shocked (considering the 
| source), but there it is.

| If thereâs one thing to take away from the 
| Ars / ZDNet / xpnet / WinSuperSite 
| tardfight, itâs donât go latching on to 
| someone just because it appears they 
| support your position.
| A postscript
| Also, is it just me or does ZDNet have the 
| most idiotic tech community on the 
| internet? Seriously, if youâre feeling 
| smart and motivated read the comments there 
| â I guarantee youâll come out the other end 
| drooling and suicidal. I think we can 
| derive a formula that the quality of 
| comments are proportional to the quality of 
| the original content.


Dear Matt Asay,

| Part of your role appears to be figuring 
| out how to help a Free Software company 
| make money (monetise is not a great word). 
| We donât think âOpen Coreâ is the right 
| way. That might work for a proprietary 
| company that just wants to leverage a 
| community to do free marketing for them. We 
| would like Canonical to be a Free Software 
| company â and for it to make money.

Is MS Preening in Public Posts?

,----[ Quote ]
| The author of the email, posted on ZDNet in a Talkback forum on the Microsoft
| antitrust trial, claimed her name was Michelle Bradley and that she
| had "retired" from Microsoft last week.
| "A verbal memo [no email allowed] was passed around the MS campus encouraging
| MS employee's to post to ZDNet articles like this one," the email said.
| "The theme is 'Microsoft is responsible for all good things in computerdom.'
| The government has no right to prevent MS from doing anything. Period.
| The 'memo' suggests we use fictional names and state and to identify
| ourselves as students," the author claimed.
