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...

Bob Young to Darl McBride

"Many smarter people than me have demolished your arguments around the idea that anyone has knowingly stolen any property from you. Yet you continue to refuse to tell anyone what it is that you claim has been stolen. So your arguments against others ring very hollow. It is like my claiming you broke into the trunk of my car and stole something from me. But then I refuse to tell anyone, the police or anyone else, what was stolen, or even allow anyone to look in the trunk of my car. Your strategy would be laughable if it were not costing everyone involved huge amounts and of time and effort to correct your errors and respond to your lawyers."

maddog: "It's cheaper to use the GPL model"

"In times past when creating computer programs meant access to a machine that costs six million dollars, fitted to a large air-conditioned room that used kilowatts of power, more investment of money was required due to requirements for funding. Today really good software can be produced as a byproduct of solving a particular problem on already existing computer systems, and the owner has no real need to keep the software proprietary. Indeed, some people find that it is cheaper to use the GPL model and hope that others help them develop and improve the code than it is to go the traditional model and have to continue to develop the code themselves."

Behlendorf: Open Source is at "The Tipping Point"

"My claim is right now, we are at the tipping point with open source."

Groklaw: "SCO has incompetent security" claim stands

"In the face of third party evidence that the attacks did happen, Linux users retracted accusations that SCO was lying. But Linux and security experts stood by their statements that SCO's description of the attacks make no sense, and that competent network administrators can easily protect themselves against the type of attack SCO says happened to it. ...Linux advocates claims that the attacks didn't happen were undercut by a report from the Cooperative Association for Internet Data Analysis (CAIDA), which issued a report Dec. 11 confirming that the attacks occurred. CAIDA said the University of California San Diego Network Telescope, which monitors distributed denial of service attacks worldwide, detected evidence of the DDOS against SCO. Groklaw posted a message on Friday afternoon retracting the accusation that SCO is lying, but stood by its assertions that SCO's network outage demonstrates the company has incompetent security."

Post-Acquisition, Novell Upbeat About SuSe Linux

"With the acquisition of SuSe for US$210 million recently, Novell looks to make a stronger impact in the Linux arena. In an exclusive interview with ChannelTimes, Ashit Panjwani, national manager, alliance & marketing, said, "SuSe didn't have direct presence in India, but with this acquisition it will help them to increase their presence. It will help us gain technical superiority, as Linux can be best distributed with the existing infrastructure of Novell. This, in turn, helps speed up deployment of SuSe Linux.' "

Praise for Sun's (Linux) Java Desktop System
