    Bastien Nocera interviews Telsa Gwynne: "Gwynne was first brought to the light of the Linux community by her diary dubbed the other side of the story, in which she logs her whereabouts, making an accurate diary unlike her husband's, the kernel hacker Alan Cox. She took some time from the scheduled talks at GUADEC2 in Denmark to talk with me, thanks a lot Telsa."

  • IBM Websphere Homepage Builder 4.0 for Linux (Apr 22, 2001, 11:00)
    "Although the program was relatively easy to use and install I just can't recommend anything that was recycled from the MS Windows Platform using wine. If a version was compiled for Linux, cost under $70USD, and ran as well as this one did I'd probably go for it. IBM has version 5 out for Windows and it would do them good to have a native Linux version. Although I didn't find any bugs I'm sure that there are a few since it needs wine to run. If it cost only $35USD I'd probably purchase it. I personally didn't like seeing the infamous C:\ when I went to either open or save my website."
