Microsoft up to their old tricks again?
And there we were believing that we could trust a vendor like Asus. The line they’ve spun to journalists in Australia about the Linux Asus Eee PC 900 being $50 more than the Windows version because it has more storage is a load of bull. Overseas, both models are the same price!

The Controversial Interview, from February 21, 2000
Q: First of all, thank you, Mr. Gates, for sitting down with us today.
Gates: No problem, Andy. I think your site is the best thing on the internet right now. By far.
Q: That’s very kind. I’d like to start by asking you to look into your crystal ball, so to speak. Where do you see computing five or ten years from now?

Just picked this up from the Gnome-Devel mailing list:
+ ndesk-dbus, ndesk-dbus-glib (external dependency)
- good from a security point of view
- need to be in a mono-specific section of the external dependencies
(because of the special rules about depending on mono)
Hmm, I wonder what "special rules" those would be?
Given Mono's encumbrance on Microsoft's poisonous "Intellectual Monopoly"®, that statement is both intriguing and terrifying.
