Time to catch up on some news, which is only... a month old. Ahem.

Firstly, some surprisingly good news from the Internet Explorer camp - namely, Internet Explorer 8 will be as standards compliant as possible by default, rather than emulating the behaviour of previous versions of the browser. This comes as Microsoft is fined $1.4bn by the European Comission, as well as reports of some of Microsoft's software being 425 years behind the times.

Finally, Matt Hartley lists the top 10 hurdles for Linux.
