Submission + - Only Novell can (legally) distribute moonlight. 1

vexorian writes: Although moonlight is said to be an open source project, but there's more than meets the eye. In reply to a blog by Matt Asay, Bruce Lowry of Novell's PR team issued a clarification

"You state in this piece that the only Linux Silverlight will run on is SUSE Linux Enterprise" ... "It's true that, under the terms of our agreements with Microsoft, only SUSE Linux Enterprise will be able to bundle Moonlight into the distribution. However, users of other distributions will be able to run Silverlight on those distributions, if they so desire."
Censorship

Submission + - Top 25 censored stories of 2007

Vexorian writes: Is there direct or indirect censorship in the media towards delicate but important topics? Project censored lists 25 stories that did not seem to get the required attention by the media: From the article: "Throughout 2005 and 2006, a large underground debate raged regarding the future of the Internet. More recently referred to as "network neutrality," the issue has become a tug of war with cable companies on the one hand and consumers and Internet service providers on the other. Yet despite important legislative proposals and Supreme Court decisions throughout 2005, the issue was almost completely ignored in the headlines until 2006.1 And, except for occasional coverage on CNBC's Kudlow & Kramer, mainstream television remains hands-off to this day".
