There is only one Windows program that I have not found an adequate Linux replacement for yet: Quicken. That keeps me tied to my kids' Windows box. That worries me because that information is way too vulnerable in Win98 (not only to hackers but also to my kids). Gnucash is way too convoluted and user-unfriendly. At last I seem to have found a replacement: KMyMoney. As its name implies, it's a KDE app. While it's not a Quicken clone per se, Quicken users should feel right at home. It can import QIF files, but I decided to start from scratch at the beginning of the new year. I'm going to run both KMyMoney and Quicken concurrently for a month or so to make sure that KMyMoney is all it seems to be. It seems like I'm very close to divorcing myself from Windows entirely!

Linux Kernel to Remain GPL v2

Linus Torvalds made this post on the Linux kernel mailing lists, stating that the kernel itself will remain GPL v2 even when GPL v3 is finalized. I suspected it would be too big of a PITA to get permission from all of the authors. Plus, I don't see a ton of benefit for the kernel proper. Thanks Slashdot.
