  • Slashdot: Linux Counter Drops 90.000 Users (2001-10-15 20:38:30)
    "Over the 7 years that the Linux Counter has been operative, a lot of people have registered who can no longer be verified. We do not want to publish false data to the world. So we have to remove the data when it is too old, and have decided to give two grace periods."

  • eWEEK: Red Hat Makes Itself More Available (Red Hat Linux 7.2 review) (2001-10-15 17:27:23)
    "...we were disappointed that there wasn't at least the option to use three features available for Linux: the ReiserFS file system (supported in the operating system but not the installer), logical volume management and file access control lists. The latter two are important for the enterprise, and we'd encourage Red Hat to move forward quickly in these areas. SuSE Linux AG's SuSE Linux is a good choice for those wanting a mainstream Linux distribution with a more aggressive development approach."

  • InfoWorld: Troublesome horizon (SSSCA & W3C) (2001-10-15 15:04:00)
    "So when you hear about open-source people objecting to the proposed W3C rules or ranting about the SSSCA legislation, do not assume they are merely leftist nutcases trying to subvert the rights of copyright owners. They are not. They are, however, fighting against proposals that may damage the structure of the Internet by crippling or destroying open-source software use."
