  • UPDATED: FSF Europe: SourceForge drifting (2001-11-12 22:08:44)
    "Over the past few months the SourceForge development facility, which hosts a large number of Free Software projects, has changed its policies. Features for exporting a project from SourceForge have been removed. The implementation used to be exclusively Free Software but is now based on non-free software. Finally, VA Linux has become rather underhand in their attempts to grasp exclusive control of contributors' work." [ SourceForge.net's manager, Patrick McGovern, has rebutted several of the points made in this article. Link within. -ed. ]

  • AListApart.com: Opera CTO HÃ¥kon Lie: MSN, Opera & Web Standards (2001-11-12 13:01:00)
    "Given this result, one might conclude that Microsoft is actively sabotaging the work of web standards and W3C -- or at the very least, demonstrating an almost unbelievable lack of competence. Microsoft points to W3C specifications when explaining why they lock competitors' browsers out of MSN, yet none of the documents published on MSN follow these W3C specifications. In any case, it will be harder for Microsoft to blame lockouts on standards in the future."

Funny that. Kinda the key idea behind Linux, but we digress."
