- Today brought another lull in the proceedings in SCO v. IBM, but Ruidh offers a preview of tomorrow's thrills, chills, and spills.
He actually made a special trip to SLC just for the hearings. In the not-so-balmy month of March, no less. And yes, many of us envy him for making the trip. So he's earned the right to call tomorrow's PSJ motions "sexy".
Yes, yes, we're all a bunch of obsessive nerds with a weird hobby. Feel free to taunt us about it, if you like. The SCO saga is sort of like a soap opera for geeks. The plot's ridiculous, the acting wooden, and the production values laughable. But you still keep tuning in to see the next day's episode anyway. You just never know what sort of crazy off-the-wall crap will happen next.
- Ok, now GL's got a new piece up about tomorrow's PSJ fiesta. Tomorrow's hearing really is a big deal, and some of the key issues in the case may get resolved as a result. But let me be the very first to go wayyyy out on a limb and predict nothing's going to be resolved tomorrow. We'll get some fun transcripts to read, but it'll all be taken under advisement, and we won't hear anything more about it for months and months. I'm just basing this on what's happened just about every single time in the past, so I guess I could be wrong.
- Speaking of travel, the FAA is thinking of ditching WIndows in favor of Linux & Google apps.
- Schools in Japan might make the switch too, mostly upgrading from Win98/Me. C'mon, you diehard Windows fans out there, just try to tell me that junking WinME doesn't count as an upgrade.
- Even the city of Birmingham (uk) may finally sort out its ongoing Linux woes, just maybe.
- An interview with a Novell exec including some enthusiastic happy talk about desktop linux. I'm not 100% sure it's on the mark, but if it makes the Y! trolls angry, it's done its job.
- One reason why I'm not 100% sure about the desktop thing is that people are still writing articles trying to dispel myths about Linux.:
- HardOCP's Consumer column spends 30 days with Linux.
- Yet another Linux item, the last for today, I promise. This one's the latest news about Linux on Atmel's AVR32 CPU family.
- Today's Xbox 360 item concerns the console's legendary reliability, or the lack thereof.
- And finally, McSweeney's offers a choice selection of jokes made for robots, by robots.
