| Trojanowski for the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group. This time Bart covers

| hour. In the second hour he walks thorough the Linux C and assembly code
| itself.


Spinmeisters taking over the Linux world

| Or as one publication puts it, Jim Zemlin: The New Center (sic) of Linux
| Gravity. Probably that's the impression the writer got.
| As I asked in April soon after the Foundation held its annual collaboration
| summit with people from the IT industry, what is important - the Foundation
| itself and its boss or the kernel which it claims to support?
| It looks like things have gone to Zemlin's head a bit; the man is now the
| story, not the kernel. The furious PR which he indulges in with gullible and
| willing US media organs to project himself and the Foundation is sickening to
| say the least.



Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that. Perhaps Google on that layer, although frankly speaking,
| most of what we have there is upside. We're small and they're big. (With)
| most things, we're big and the other guy is small, so we have more to lose
| than gain. In this case, we have more to gain than to lose with Google.
