Off of Techdirt. Yahoo Blocking Trillian Again -- This Time They Say They're Serious In the ongoing battle to keep their markets smaller, rather than as large as they can possibly be, the various instant messaging platforms still refuse to come up with a single standard to communicate across systems. Every time I complain about this issue, someone says "just use Trillian." That would be a great solution if the various IM providers didn't keep blocking Trillian. Yahoo has now announced that, not only ......

Microsofts new offensive on Linux

I scooped this article off my newsreader.

It may seems as if Microsoft has had enough of all the slandering with regard to security comming from the Linux camp.
