Submission Tell Lenovo the Trackpoint is Important->

larsl writes: "The Thinkpad is still the de-facto official laptop of Linux and BSD users. Lenovo's VP of design David Hill is running a survey to find out how important the trackpoint is to people. This is frightening, considering the previous give-up-on-trackpoint post from Lenovo's anti-linux blogger Matt Kohut."

Licensing an Abandonware Game? 148

WolverineOfLove writes "I'm recreating a 1980s abandonware game with copyrights that have been seemingly unused for the past 18 years. The situation is detailed further in a Slashdot journal entry I just wrote, but in short: Is it worth dealing with all the copyrights and paying money if I want to recreate an abandonware title as an open source game? I know there are legal implications to certain decisions I might make, but there is a real possibility that this game's copyright holder will do nothing with the rights, and I'd much prefer preserving it for others than letting it fade away."

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
