Mandriva and Microsoft

Thursday 16th February 2006

Category: News

We start off today with an article from Newsforge - this time Newsforge publishes a person's account of Mandriva as a Desktop OS. Speaking of Linux, Google is planning to bring Picasa to GNU/Linux, albeit through Wine rather than natively. Still, the effect is supposed the same as having it run natively, so nevermind! [Picasa is an image program from Google]

Meanwhile, Sun has GPLed the latest incarnation of UltraSPARC, which should be a boost to the FOSS community.

Finally, the ever present Microsoft makes the news once again - this time because Gentoo Founder Daniel Robbins has quit Microsoft. Additionally, Microsoft and the EC are still arguing with each other.
