Submission + - Is Solaris a bright choice for developers?

anilg writes: "The register writes about the emergence of solaris as a Developer platform

So, why wouldn't you use OpenSolaris as your developer desktop, perhaps to work up "proofs of concept" in your own time — to sell to your CIO and thus help to develop your career. I'd be interested in reader feedback as to why any people thinking of Linux aren't also thinking of OpenSolaris. Or perhaps they are...
With Sun studio with sun's compilers and Java, Sun is looking to open itself to developers. And, its giving away DVDs! FD : anilg works on LiveUSB and BeleniX, an opensolaris distribution, in his spare time."

Submission + - Isohunt.com shutdown by MPAA

anilg writes: "http://isohunt.com/ , THE search engine for torrents is temprarily down. From the webpage:

Lawyers from our primary ISP decided to pull our plug without any advance notice, as of 14:45 PST. No doubt related to our lawsuit brought by the MPAA, but we don't have more information at this time until people responsible comes to work tomorrow. We will be back in operation once we sort out this mess with our current ISP, or we get new hardware ready at our new ISP.
They also note:

FYI, since this is a common topic, no, moving to Sweden or Sealand isn't going to help. I have no intention of hiding. BitTorrent was created for legitimate distribution of large media files, and we stand by that philosophy as a search engine and aggregator.

It's funny.  Laugh.

Submission + - FSM scandal : First person to be touched is me!

anilg writes: "In a scandal that looks to blow FSMism apart and test the faith of pastafarians all over the world, reports have emerged of the first person to be touched by FSM was actually NOT! [1] contains irrefutale and concrete evidence in this regard. Also the first pastafarian to ACTUALLY have been touched is reported to be on a wild ego posting frenzy, which is excusable, as pirates have long been known to possess this habit.
