IBM PC; GNOME Online Desktop; Perfect Code; Adam Curtis

First up is the Register going all the way back to 1981 to visit the IBM PC, complete with a 4.77MHz processor. Speedy.

Next up is a tour of the GNOME Online Desktop, which presents a different way of using GNOME. Some of the features seem handy, especially those related to package management - anything that helps users pick packages from the multitude out there is heading in the right direction - although I'm not sure that I'd enjoy using the sidebar. Of course, the sidebar is not obligatory, and there are plenty more parts to the Online Desktop that will hopefully work well.

There's also the question of whether perfect code exists, and the Register interviewing Adam Curtis.
