SUSE Linux 10.0 Beta 3 Released

“The openSUSE project has released SUSE Linux 10.0 Beta 2.
Something noticable about this beta, is that they now have a PowerPC version!
Yep that’s right folks SUSE has returned to the PowerPC platform.”

I have a friend who’s a Mac user, and really is hooked on SUSE’s YaST configuration tools, I really think this new development is great, because I think PowerPC is an interesting architecture, but also because now Mac users will have a very easy to use Linux distro, if they want to run Linux on their Mac, which I sure would love to if I had a dual G5 PowerMac!

Will Sun Kill Linux?

“If Sun gets very serious about Solaris 10 on x86 and the Open Solaris project that it hopes will nourish it, Linux vendors had better get very worried. That’s because, in the many areas where Linux is miles ahead of Solaris, Sun stands a good chance of catching up quickly.”

In my mind Sun will never “kill” Linux, they may offer some good competition, but that’s fine with me because competition is good for the industry in my opinion.

Personally I’ll always use either Linux or FreeBSD, beacause they are relativly vendor independant. The only major corporation, I know of, that offers support for Solaris just happens to be Sun themselves. If I used Debian Linux there are a lot of guys I could go to for support, guys like Progeny Linux, who’ve been working with Debian for years would be the first place I’d go, but if I didn’t like their service I could go to another support vendor.

Screenshot of the RIAA site hacked.

“Gotta love it. If you missed out on seeing it when it actually was hacked, here is a picture to let you know what it looked like.”

If you, like me, strongly oppose the RIAA and MPAA, you gotta check this screenshot out. It shows the RIAA site when it got cracked and replaced, with what seems like a warez site 😛

I certainly hope someone will do it again, and maybe even go a step further and add a BitTorrent tracker on their site while the cracker is at it! 😀
I’ll be laughing my ass off when I see that! 😉

Meanwhile, I’m sure the guys at the RIAA and MPAA are busy tossing salad on every single member of the US Congress.
