Submission + - Google offering free web fonts! (blogspot.com)

dclozier writes: Google has announced a collection of high quality open source web fonts in the Google Font Directory, and the Google Font API to make them available to everybody on the web.

Google has been working with a number of talented font designers to produce a varied collection of high quality open source fonts for the Google Font Directory. With the Google Font API, using these fonts on your web page is almost as easy as using the standard set of so-called 'web-safe' fonts that come installed on most computers.

The Google Font API provides a simple, cross-browser method for using any font in the Google Font Directory on your web page. The fonts have all the advantages of normal text: in addition to being richer visually, text styled in web fonts is still searchable, scales crisply when zoomed, and is accessible to users using screen readers.


Submission + - Novell beats SCO in court, again! (novell.com)

dclozier writes: Novell has beat SCO again. Does this mean SCO is finally dead? As posted on Novell's website:

Today, the jury in the District Court of Utah trial between SCO Group and Novell issued a verdict. Novell is very pleased with the jury’s decision confirming Novell’s ownership of the Unix copyrights, which SCO had asserted to own in its attack on Linux. Novell remains committed to promoting Linux, including by defending Linux on the intellectual property front. This decision is good news for Novell, for Linux, and for the open source community.
