In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Race Begins For Top @linux.net Addresses
Race Begins For Top @linux.net Addresses

Linare's CEO Soma Sundaram is saying that from next week folks will be able to take advantage of a new (and free) Web mail service...one that brings them an @linux.net e-mail address!

6MB of storage space will be free.

The Linux world has Fred N. van Kempen to thank. (He's the Dutch Linux hobbyist who sold linux.com in 1999 to VA Research, now known as VA Software.)

In 1999 when he sold it, van Kempen revealed that he also owned linux.net but insisted he'd retain it so that it could serve as an umbrella URL for Linux users groups. The Linux .world changes fast, it seems, and four years is a very long time. Neither party is disclosing the financial terms of the transfer.

Some pundits are already saying that, just as Linux.com tried to offer free e-mail addresses and it failed, the same thing will happen with this new service, arguing that Linux users just seem to not be interested in self-promotion that way. LinuxWorld.com has a more open mind. Let us wait and see.

Well, I think this is a great idea .. Being
in the Linux community, every one should support
this idea...I am getting a feeling if linuxworld
is getting funded from Microsoft ???

Buyers of these computers though might appreciate having what we hope will be a lifetime email address independent of their ISP. Most of use long-time users of GNU/Linux already have email addresses and in some cases have set-up auto-forwarding to one or two main accounts where we collect all our email. However, if this service goes ahead I beg this vendor to close the open relay on outbound email and require user authentication before allowing any outbound email.

It's not that Linux users aren't interested in self-promotion, it's that most of them don't NEED another email address. They have plenty already.
