Subject: Why Is Google Not Supporting The Open Document Formats?
according to spiegel.de facebook is raising the fences to its walled garden... Apps which allow chatting across borders etc. have got locked m2m accounts now - are not useable anymore.
Cute. Did you notice that they made the "Try It" button functional? Even went another layer down with it...
I'm sure that the Google-haters will be in a big tizzy today over the announcement that Google will be forking the Webkit rendering engine for use in future versions of the Chrome browser.
The interesting thing is that Opera has decided to go along with them, and will be using Google's engine instead of Webkit.
Looks like Apple is on their own now. But does anyone actually use Safari?
Google always adds multiple layers to their april fools.
Also the reason google haters would state to be angry at this is because they see it as google taking over another open source project for their own uses, likely lowering support for the origional project, in favor of the google varient (which they are). I can't think this, as forking is part of the awesomeness of open-source. When your goals don't match the project goals completely, you can always fork the project. I'm not going to deny Google that just because they're the embodyment of pure evil.

otoh, seems like apple is going to "clean up" much of the google cruft too.
their architectures and thoughts howto proceed are simply diversifying to much to continue in one project; so imho that fork is ok.
Lets see what comes from this, phoronix is going to tell ;-)
1.10 is the stupidest thing I ever read. "It's not really open source because no one can understand the complexities of a rendering engine." Really now?
sophisticated -- even we can't handle it."

Man, I love Ernestine. Great character.
I mentioned her during one of my improv classes, and the instructor thought the reference was 'obscure'.
I guess I've become old now.
Sadly so - though hopefully we'll get a lot older still! My lead architect is 28. Far too frequently, he has no idea what I'm talking about when I quote various "classics", such as Princess Bride, Bukaroo Bonzai, When Harry Met Sally, Blazing Saddles, etc.
You passed IGgy becoming obsolete? How fast were you going?
