Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com.
At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Arne
Flones, Doc Searls, Russ Pavlicek and Jeff Gerhardt are back live
tonight. We have a great show lined up tonight on The Linux
Segment One- The News. We will cover
THE HOT NEWS of the week. The news segment will be
expanded to cover about 45 minutes. Because of our unusual show
last week, there is a lot of uncovered news. Tonight on the news:
Judge: File-swapping tools are legal, Balmer: Linux? What Me
Worry?, follow up to: "in search of Linux Laptops", DARPA Cancels

disney save us), and way way more.....
