Quote of the Day: “It’s not necessary to be anti-Microsoft if you consider yourself an Open Source advocate.” This door swings both ways, too.
Why would you rent software when so much of it available for free? Unless, of course, this means that Microsoft is going to open source Windows and charge a monthly service instead. Hmmm…. OK, so say Microsoft moves towards a services-based revenue model, and retains their OS/browser monopoly. It’s bad enough that we have to deal with the other service-oriented monopolies already (cable, electric, etc.), but to have to deal with Microsoft in the same vein would be horrific. All you have to do is look at the piss-poor security model the Windows scripting system has and you can see how bad an idea this might turn out to be. I’m not saying that Microsoft shouldn’t do this, I just think they need to fix their huge security holes before subjecting the Microsoft network computer onto the world.
An inside source just told me that X-Files will be coming back for another year, with both Mulder and Scully. Whoo-hoo.

In my latest Reel.com order, there was a flyer for this site. Too bad I already spent two weeks scouring Manhattan looking for some nice racks that can hold my growing DVD video library. I ended up getting some nice wooden racks from Straight From the Crate.
Those guys over at MacOS Rumors either make stuff up on-the-fly, or someone is deliberately feeding them false information. A couple of the “rumors” today are totally baseless.
