SCO has finally revealed the lines of code it feels were stolen and inserted into the Linux kernel, while OpenSUSE 11.3 is here. Well done Novell! Even better news comes from Opera when it announced the release of version 10.60 of its super browser, featuring embedded support for Google's WebM video codec and lots of speen improvements.
- Discovery of the week:
- 'sudo -K' clears the sudo password cache.
- Micro USB looks confusingly similar to mini-USB, in a good way.
LiveCDs are great for partition management with GPartEd.
- Get knitting with Knitter 0.5.5. It's most excellent because it produces a 3D representation of a knitting pattern and supports KnitML.
- Closed Ballot:
Do the likes of Red Hat, Novell and Canonical contribute enough back to the community?
