11/17 SNR

First off, let me apologize for not posting anything since Tuesday. SNR is a spare-time project for me, and I haven't had much spare time this week. That's one downside to the fact that nobody pays me to do this. On the bright side, well, I can't truthfully argue that being unpaid means I'm objective, because it should be obvious I'm rather biased about the whole SCO situation. But at least I can say all my biases are my own. I guess that counts for something, probably.

Anyway, here's today's crop:

I still haven't made up my mind about the Novell-MS thing. Given past history, it's reasonable to assume that MS is eating Novell for breakfast, and Novell won't realize it until it's far too late. But at this point that would just be an assumption. I tend to take a rather cynical view of the industry, and the world as a whole; my goal, as always, is to do that without verging into the realm of conspiracy theories. If you start dismissing actual evidence in favor of unproven things you'd prefer to believe, you may have gone over the line. It can be a very thin line, but it's an crucial one.

So here are a variety of opinions about the deal:
