  3. Incredible story about dysfunction at Microsoft. Via Don Marti.
  4. I like this. I'm also pretty sad that Microsoft is the hero and not, say, GNOME. Bah.
  5. I will convert your Excel data into one of several web-friendly formats, including HTML, JSON and XML.
  6. What, Microsoft doesn't subscribe to the FSF's definition of "free software"?
  7. The hardware looks awesome. Too bad it's very likely to be locked down so that it does not run GNU/Linux. :-(
  8. Nice profile of danah, although a little weird it's in the fashion section and, y'know, focuses a ton on her fashion.
  9. I don't really see how this a new paradigm, but maybe that's just didn't because I didn't read the book yet.
  10. "Start using your PC right away: After installing Windows 7, we pre-loaded only the software you need and removed the trial versions and bloatware that you don't, so you don't have to spend hours setting up your PC—it's ready to run, right out of the box. Your PC has been performance tuned: By getting rid of redundant utility–ware that can slow down your PC, we've verified that the software you use most often works together seamlessly, and that your computer is running at peak performance."
  11. Syummary: Everybody sues everybody.
  12. Super interesting article on how Microsoft works with antipiracy efforts of the government to suppress dissent more broadly in Russian society.
  13. Via AaronSw. Awesome.
  14. If you're going to be a software counterfeiter, then please copy and illegally use Microsoft products. The above plea isn't from a posting on a hacker forum. Rather, it's how Microsoft business group president Jeff Raikes feels about software counterfeiters. "If they're going to pirate somebody, we want it to be us rather than somebody else," Raikes said.
  15. Article by Jeremy Allison about why mono is a problem. I think he's right.
  16. I don't think that's the most valuable lesson we can learn here.
  17. Jobs are needed to "to cope with the Windows 7 launch." Sounds about right. ;)
  18. I think that writing about a companies internally strategy is pretty risky but the idea that Google is putting its own interest over its users is an interesting idea that meshes pretty well with the whole antifeatures cocept that I've been throwing around.
