- A guide to ripping and encoding music
Good reference and history of mp3 et al
- Honeypot Project: Unpatched Linux Systems Last Longer than Windows
I know more hackers are gunning for Windows, I know more desktops use Windows than Linux, but a few months is still better than a few minutes.
- How Open Will Open Solaris Really Be?
I keep forgetting, who exactly asked Sun to open source Solaris? Wasn't there something else we wanted Sun to open source? :-)
- Microsoft Versus Mozilla: Internet Explorer's Share Down To 90 Percent
Ok, you know I like FireFox. It's nice to see some competition and innovation in this space, and it's coming from the open source camp. By the way, the cover of the latest Wired magazine is about Blake Ross, the leader of the FireFox effort.
- Amazon Web services fan out
More global enablement of web services.
- Q&A: EMI exec on SOA integration of Web sites
Web services are everywhere! What's critically important here is for there to be music industry-wide standards to share information. We can applaud EMI but we'll applaud even louder when all the companies use the same WSDL descriptions for their services.
- Slew of Fears Slows Open-Source Uptake
HEADLINE ALERT! Take this with a grain of salt: we did a study and there is a problem, but don't worry, my company can fix it for you. Many (all?) vendors do this, but you should recognize it when you see it.
- Microsoft: Let My NT Go!
Bets on MS open sourcing NT, anyone? Incidentally, commercial software products often contain bits that are licensed from other people. You can't just take all your code and give away intellectual property that belongs to other people. So even though someone announces they will open source something (Solaris? I don't know) it can be months before they scrub and rewrite the bits that came from other places.
