+ - Congressman Orrin Hatch caught pirating software

Submitted by
Rocketship Underpant
Rocketship Underpant writes: "Orrin Hatch, the Congressman viewed by many as a shill for corporate copyright interests, recently stated that people who download copyrighted materials should have their computers destroyed as punishment. However, as Wired.com reports, Hatch's own website uses copyrighted software without permission — a Javascript menu system developed by a British company. Is Mr. Hatch accepting volunteers to go through his home and office destroying all his computers, or were his comments to Congress just a bunch of hypocritical hot air?"

+ - Collusion or Co-operation ZFS?

Submitted by Ageing Metalhead
Ageing Metalhead writes: With the announcement of Leopard supporting ZFS, is this a case of Apple following on from the best environment they can license for free, or collusion between Sun and Apple to take on the Microsoft with scalable storage? "We would not at all be surprised to see ZFS start to show up in other operating systems at some point in the not-too-distant future," Weinberg said.

Is Ubuntu or Redhat next to make ZFS the FS across all Unices?

Humanity has the stars in its future, and that future is too important to be lost under the burden of juvenile folly and ignorant superstition. - Isaac Asimov
