"All great masters are chiefly distinguished by the power of adding a second, a third, and perhaps a fourth step in a continuous line. Many a man had taken the first step. With every additional step you enhance immensely the value of your first." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Firefox 3; Linux not about choice; Respect please!

Friday 11th January 2008

Category: News

First up is another post on improvements in Firefox 3 on Linux.

Next is a post on a Fedora mailing list stating Linux is not about choice, despite many crowds stating this time and again. Perhaps it's just more accurate to say that choice is a pleasant side-effect?

A post by Bruce Byfield on conspiracy theorists and free software, has stirred parts of the community somewhat, with some requesting a little respect.

Finally, a couple of articles from El Reg - Becta warns against Vista and Office 2007 in the classroom, while from New York a couple of doctors warn against Java, although oddly praising the close relative C++.
