  1. What positive happened the last six months in Linux? Nothing I cantell.

    This non-story by a Linux businessman is belied by the fact that I
    have not seen any change in Linux based on this group's postings.
    Same Old Stuff.

    Perhaps Shuttleworth, ironically a Space Shuttle tourist, is a UK
    citizen, which explains why the BBC is reporting on him, or perhaps
    he's just good at self promotion.

    Ubuntu 'reaping Linux dividend'
    By Darren Waters
    Technology editor, BBC News website

    The public perception of open source software is changing fast, said
    Mark Shuttleworth, who leads distribution of the Ubuntu operating
    system (OS).

    A new version of Ubuntu, a version of the Linux OS, is released on
    Thursday.

    Mr Shuttleworth said the success of the Asus Eee PC and the work of
    the One Laptop Per Child programme had driven awareness of open
    source.

    "There has been a sea change in the way people think of Linux, which
    is very healthy," he said.

    "We have seen a real shift in the last six months from folks seeing
    open source as either a super-specialist thing for people who run data
    centres or as an enthusiast thing, to something which is energising a
    lot of the straight commercial PC industry," said Mr Shuttleworth.

IBM said IDS provides continuous availability and disaster recovery features, including support for multiple secondary servers, and claims 99.9 percent availability.
