+ - Red Hat announces desktop Linux on whitebox PCs

Submitted by Tookis
Tookis (666) writes "The world's largest Linux vendor Red Hat will release a pre-installed desktop version of Linux globally in September. The new Red Hat desktop targeting primarily small business users will be available on cheap whitebox Intel PCs and, according to Red Hat, will not try to be a Windows clone. The move contrasts markedly with Dell's Ubuntu desktop push. Distribution will be global through corner store whitebox vendors rather than brand name PCs. http://www.itwire.com/content/view/13876/53/"

frooge writes "With the recent release of iD's catalog on Steam, it appears DOSBox is being used to run the old DOS games for greater compatibility. According to a post on the Halflife2.net forums, however, this distribution does not contain a copy of the GPL license that DOSBox is distributed under, which violates the license. According to the DOSBox developers, they were not notified that it was being used for this release."

+ - Corporate CEO targets teenage blogger 3

marylouluddite writes "A corporate CEO named Patrick Byrne, who runs a company called Overstock.com, has sicced his Director of Communications, Judd Bagley, on a teenage blogger who lampooned him.

The blogger's name is Zac Bissonnette, a college freshman and 19 years old. Zac blogs on stocks at AOL, and also has a parody website, wwww.hedgefunnies.com.

One of his items lampooned Patrick Byrne, and he has also been critical of Byrne in Blogging Stocks. See http://hedgefunnies.com/2007/07/30/patrick-byrne-u nveils-irrefutable-proof-of-naked-short-selling

Byrne struck back by having Bagley attack Zac on Wikipedia, and by threatening to do an item about him in antisocialmedia.net, a website dedicated to attacking critics of Patrick Byrne.

An investigative reporter, Gary Weiss, has the scoop on his blog: http://garyweiss.blogspot.com/2007/08/overstockcom -sinks-to-new-low-targets.html

It's really a shame that a big company is so paranoid and sensitive to criticism that it has to chase after a teenage blogger."

Badges? We don't need no stinking badges.
