At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek; have another strange and wonderful show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!
In Segment One - Hot News: We will be covering the hot news that effects the Linux and open Source communities over the last few weeks. In particular we will discuss the Real Names saga (can we say we told them so), and how Microsoft once again let a company develop a market for them, then knifed them to death. Tonight we coin a new term for Microsoft's predatory behavior, "Corparicide". Check out http://www.teare.com/ for comments and details from former Real Names CEO Keith Teare. Keith will be joining us for the news segment(probably a bit extended tonight). People keep on saying we are spending too much time talking about Microsoft, but hey folks, look at what they are doing. DOJ WAKE UP!!!!!
In Segment Two - Codeweavers We are joined tonight by Jeremy White CEO and founder of Codeweavers, Inc. Codeweavers provides products and services that help users make the transition from the Windows OS to the Linux OS by making it possible to use Windows software on Linux. They are a primary proponent of Wine. Their business model is to help customers leverage Windows technology on Linux via Codeweavers expertise in Wine.
What is WINE?
Codeweavers did not "invent" Wine The Wine project started in 1993 as a way to support running Windows 3.1 programs on Linux. Bob Amstadt was the original coordinator, but turned it over fairly early on to Alexandre Julliard, who has run it ever since.
