+ - Cooliris Releases Linux Plugin!->

Yi Ding writes: "Cooliris featured in a New York Times article last year, has just released their plugin for linux. It is one of the most popular addons for firefox, and in my opinion among the most innovative. It brings a coverflow-like 3D interface to the web. Just another example of what ISVs can do building on open source software."

IQ150 writes: Open Source software is not inherently bad, but the way that it has been brought to the world, with horrible licenses such as the GPL make it appear to be bad.

How Often Do You Replace Your Hard Drives? 254 254

Telemachas asks: "I recently purchased a Dell P4 2.8 GHz swap meet computer with a 200 gig hard disk for a good price and all is working fine. It does not seem prudent, however, to trust my data on a swap meet item. For another @ $ 75.00 each I can purchase new 200 gig HDDs. I would also like to do my first RAID system. I am now wondering how often, if at all, do Slashdot readers replace their HDDs?"

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
