unixfan writes "Georg Greve, developer of Open Document Format and active FOSS developer, has received a knighthood in Germany for his work. From the article: 'Some weeks ago I received news that the embassy in Berne had unsuccessfully been trying to contact me under FSFE's old office address in Zurich. This was a bit odd and unexpected. So you can probably understand my surprise to be told by the embassy upon contacting them that on 18 December 2009 I had been awarded the Cross of Merit on ribbon (Verdienstkreuz am Bande) by the Federal Republic of Germany. As you might expect, my first reaction was one of disbelief. I was, in fact, rather shaken. You could also say shocked. Quick Wikipedia research revealed this to be part of the orders of knighthood, making this a Knight's Cross.'"

Geminus (602334) writes "Yahoo news reports that on Friday the 14th SCO finally filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. SCO CEO Daryl McBride blames Linux. Apparently, NOVELL's impending $25,000,000 award will finally sink this lead laden ship out of existence. Since we all saw it coming, anyone want their money back for buying a SCO license?"
