People believe Apple famously avoids Blu-Ray? In 2005 they were backing it over the competing HD-DVD format. To quote their press release at http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2005/mar/10blu-ray.html

“Apple has a long history of technical innovation around DVD hardware and software, and their support of the Blu-ray Disc format is a testament to their commitment of ongoing innovation. The Blu-ray Disc format provides the immense capacity and the revolutionary functionality that Apple’s loyal customer base will be sure to enjoy,” said Maureen Weber, chief BDA spokesperson and general manager of HP's Optical Storage Solutions Business. “We’re thrilled about Apple joining our 16-member board, and we look forward to working with them on the development and promotion of the Blu-ray Disc format.”

+ - Microsoft withdraws Sysinternals source code

damieng writes "Remember how Microsoft acquired Winternals and Sysinternals back in July?

The official press announcement might have said "Customers will be able to continue building on Sysinternals' advanced utilities, technical information and source code for utilities related to Windows." but now the tune has changed.

Microsoft's migration page instead now states "Source Code: The number of source code downloads didn't justify the migration, support, and possible integration problems it might cause with other Windows components down the road."

So much for being more open."

A critical milestone in Mono development, the 1.2 release includes support for the Windows Forms API and features considerable performance improvements. Ars Technica comments: "[t]he inclusion of the WinForms API in Mono 1.2 significantly simplifies the process of porting .NET applications from Windows to Linux and other supported platforms. Developers can now use WinForms to produce cross-platform compatible user interfaces for .NET applications. Mono 1.2 could potentially facilitate broader deployment of existing .NET applications, and reduce development overhead associated with cross-platform compatible desktop software.""
