Groklaw - Court Rules: Novell owns the UNIX and UnixWare copyrights! Novell has right to waive!
Topic: Computers 3:26 am EDT, Aug 18, 2007

Hot off the presses: Judge Dale Kimball has issued a 102-page ruling [PDF] on the numerous summary judgment motions in SCO v. Novell. Here is what matters most:

[T]he court concludes that Novell is the owner of the UNIX and UnixWare Copyrights.

That's Aaaaall, Folks! The court also ruled that "SCO is obligated to recognize Novell's waiver of SCO's claims against IBM and Sequent". That's the ball game. There are a couple of loose ends, but the big picture is, SCO lost. Oh, and it owes Novell a lot of money from the Microsoft and Sun licenses.

The top 20 IT mistakes to avoid | InfoWorld
Topic: Computers 12:47 pm EDT, Oct 10, 2005

We all like to think we learn from mistakes, whether our own or others’. So in theory, the more serious bloopers you know about, the less likely you are to be under the bright light of interrogation, explaining how you managed to screw up big-time. That’s why we put out an all-points bulletin to IT managers and vendors everywhere: For the good of humanity, tell us about the gotchas that have gotten you, so others can avoid them.

2. Dismissing open source -- or bowing before it

For better or worse, many IT shops are susceptible to “religious” behavior -- a blind, unyielding devotion to a particular technology or platform. Nowhere is that more true than with open source.

This is full of 20 tips and things to watch for that aren't entirely obvious but they are good things to think about. It was a quick read at least.

I just love the name of this thing.

I know I am behind the times on this but if you are using mozilla without them, you are me three weeks ago. :) If you have a middle mouse button or your scroll wheel can click then these are definitely something you need to try. The tab navigation and forward / back movements are great. I can't see me going back to a browser without them ever again. - optimoz: /gestures/index

Novell Forge : Help Requests
Topic: Computers 10:05 pm EDT, Jul 22, 2003

I really wish I could submit a few links in one post but this will have to do. Now many people know that I am a fan of Novell and do enjoy using their products. Earlier this year Novell announced that they will be adding support for Linux for many of their products. For this task they have started . They are in the progress of porting some of their software to linux and also attempting to take things from linux and put it into Netware.

I have already seen SSH and some other open source tools run on Netware. I can't wait to see where this is going to end. So if you have a few minutes take a moment to look through the project list and see if there is something you would like to play with.
