    Dell Inc. began polling customers about their software preferences on Tuesday as part of an effort by the struggling PC vendor to meet a popular request for desktops and notebooks that run on Linux instead of Windows. Dell posted the survey on a company blog, asking PC users to choose between Linux flavors such as Fedora and Ubuntu, and to pick more general choices such as notebooks versus desktops, high-end models versus value models and telephone-based support versus community-based support.

    After thirteen years as a loyal Red Hat and Fedora user, I reached my limit today, when an attempt to upgrade one (1) package pitched me into a four-hour marathon of dependency chasing, at the end of which an attempt to get around a trivial file conflict rendered my system unusable. The proximate causes of this failure were (1) incompetent repository maintenance, making any nontrivial upgrade certain to founder on a failed dependency, and (2) the fact that rpm is not statically linked -- so it's possible to inadvertently remove a shared library it depends on and be unrecoverably screwed....

    Traitors of Record: The Record of the New York TimesBy Fedora “. . .the most untrustworthy paper in the United States. . .” --President Dwight Eisenhower, referring to the New York TimesIntroductionLast week Senator John Cornyn criticized the New York Times for endangering national security with a James Risen story on NSA surveillance timed to coincide with a vote on the Patriot Act and, incidentally, with the release of a book by Risen. A review of the record illustrates that endangering national security through irresponsible leaks is nothing new for the New York Times. Some particularly outrageous examples are worth...

    Pinch Sulzberger where it hurts Fedora, a diligent researcher at Free Republic, documents the New York Times history of revealing state military secrets.   In his press conference today, the President indicated he believed an investigation has been launched into the latest, most serious of these leaks—the revelation of methods in NSA's surveillance of contacts between terrorists abroad and their cohorts here. It is time for those who advertise in the NYT and therefore underwrite , however unwittingly, this perfidy to take a stand: Are they for weakening the ability of the US to protect us (and their businesses) or not? I propose they...

    Red Hat is trying to ramp up its profile in the open source community by spinning off its Fedora open source project into an independent foundation and ramping up its patent reform efforts in the U.S. and in Europe. As part of the transition, the Fedora open source project will transfer development work and copyright ownership of contributed code to the foundation but Red Hat will continue to provide substantial financial and engineering support. The company makes its Red Hat Linux distribution available as part of Fedora and said this week that its newly introduced Directory Server and forthcoming Certificate...

    WHO did the Academy have in mind when they created this year's Official Poster? From www.oscars.org: Poster size: 27" x 40" Last year was about the history and elegance of our diamond anniversary. THIS year is all about the fun and excitement, the flash and pizzazz of Oscar Night. To capture that vibe, the Academy commissioned pop artist Burton Morris to create the official poster art for the 76th Academy Awards. Be part of the scene and order yours now. And, from www.drudgereportarchives.com: We report, you decide. :o)
