Submission + - Inside the Windows 7 Launch Party Pack (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: PC Pro has got its hands on one of Microsoft's Windows 7 launch party packs — yes, the one from *that* video — and can reveal all of the party goodness contained within.

Submission + - Linux startup wins MIT $100K (cnet.com)

Looks like a scrappy team of engineers can hold their own against the MBAs after all.
