SEC Looking into MS-SCO Connection?

Newsforge is reporting that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is looking into the Microsoft-SCO connection as well as some other SCO-related activities. It seems that the SEC has received a lot of complaints, complaints it takes quite seriously. This could prove to be very interesting indeed. Thanks Slashdot.

Mt. Rainier Support in Linux

Philips invented the Mt. Rainier specification to allow you to use CD-RWs or DVD+RWs as a big floppy. Linux is the first operating system to provide full Mt. Rainier support at the OS-level. I wrote up a HOWTO showing you how you can get Mt. Rainier support enabled. This HOWTO was looked over by Jens Axboe, the fine gentleman who got Mt. Rainier support in the kernel.

UPDATE 7:00 P.M. I made some minor additions and corrections to the article just now. If you read it earlier, please check it out again.

Eolas Patent Rejected

The U.S. Patent Office has rejected Eolas' patent of browser plug-in technology. Hopefully, this will lead to a reversal of their multimillion dollar lawsuit against Microsoft. The suit could also have had devastating effects on Mozilla and other browsers. Glad to see that some common sense has prevailed. Thanks Slashdot.
