Microsoft Pleads With Consumers to Adopt Vista Now

I for one am currently at torn between XP and Vista. I like XP because it doesn't crash, my drivers work. However, more people keep asking for help with Vista, and I haven't even logged into a Vista Machine yet. :(
Microsoft Pleads With Consumers to Adopt Vista Now - SlinkySausage writes "Microsoft has admitted, in an email to the press, that 'some customers may be waiting to adopt Windows Vista because they've heard rumors about device or application compatibility issues, or because they think they should wait for a service pack release.' The company is now pleading with customers not to wait until the release of SP1 at the end of the year, launching a 'fact rich' program to try to convince them to 'proceed with confidence'. The announcement coincides with an embarrassing double-backflip: Microsoft had pre-briefed journalists that it was going to allow home users to run Vista basic and premium under virtual machines like VMWare, but it changed its mind at the last minute and pulled the announcement."

AMA to Vote on Whether or Not Video Game/Internet Addiction is a Real Medical Condition. What about blogging?

I actually thought I was addicted to Video Games, but then I woke up one morning and started to install Drupal. Now my addiction has moved to playing around with Drupal and Blogging. :(
AMA to Vote on Whether or Not Video Game/Internet Addiction is a Real Medical Condition -

amaaddiction.jpg

The American Medical Association is taking steps to classify Internet and video game addiction as an actual medical condition. A vote is scheduled next week where members will decide whether or not to officially apply the “addiction” label. Bah, addictions are good for people. They help build character, at least the fun ones do.

In all seriousness, how many stories have we seen about some guy essentially giving up his real life to exclusively live a Second Life or to level up his Blood Elf until he passes out? Sure, this article points out that public scares like “they’re listening to too much rock music” or “rap encourages and celebrates the thug lifestyle” are common in American history, but video game and Internet addiction certainly seems to exist, at least anecdotally.

Red Hat Vows To Stand Up To Patent Intimidation

It looks like Red Hat isn't going to allow Microsoft to bully them into paying for Patent Protection. Microsoft has stated that linux is infringing on multiple patents and intellectual property. Red Hat provides an enterprise Linux operating system, when you're more or less purchasing continual and automatic updates and the option for Technical Support from RedHat directly. Red Hat previously provided their Variant of Linux for free, and then discontinued it. They now provide a free desktop version called Fedora there are also other variants of Fedora like CentOS which is more of an enterprise operating system very much like Red Hat but not affiliated with Red Hat directly.
