Subject: SCO is finally “Dead Parrot” dead

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

SCO, the company that started the Linux lawsuit madness, is now in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but the Linux intellectual property FUD lives on. SCO has ceased to be. It has expired and gone to meet its maker. It's joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-company. With apologies to Monty Python's Dead Parrot sketch, SCO, the company behind a series of foolish anti-Linux lawsuits, is finally really and truly dead.

Subject: This week at LWN: TCP Fast Open: expediting web services

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The speed of TCP data flows is dependent on two factors: transmission delay (the width of the data pipe) and propagation delay (the time that the data takes to travel from one end of the pipe to the other). Transmission delay is dependent on network bandwidth, which has increased steadily and substantially over the life of the Internet. On the other hand, propagation delay is a function of router latencies, which have not improved to the same extent as network bandwidth, and the speed of light, which has remained stubbornly constant. (At intercontinental distances, this physical limitation means that—leaving aside router latencies—transmission through the medium alone requires several milliseconds.) The relative change in the weighting of these two factors means that over time the propagation delay has become a steadily larger component in the overall latency of web services. (This is especially so for many web pages, where a browser often opens several connections to fetch multiple small objects that compose the page.)

Subject: Ubuntu may drop Nautilus 3.6 from Quantal!?

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

These are really interesting news that come directly from Ubuntu’s Sebastien Bacher in Launchpad Bug Tracker. Sebastian basically says that Ubuntu cannot follow Gnome upstream as Gnome lack to plan their work in advance or communicate enough with Ubuntu about their new features.Sebastian also says that Ubuntu might use Nautilus 3.4 or Nemo or Marlin. Ubuntu puts the pressure in Gnome for sure!

Subject: How YouTube lets content companies

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Lon Seidman knew he wasn't going to get rich from his three-hour video discussion of the Curiosity rover landing on Mars. The local media entrepreneur did a live Google+ Hangout about the event and posted the resulting video to YouTube, expecting it would earn him a few bucks and attract some new readers to his site, CT Tech Junkie. During the discussion, Seidman played a number of NASA videos about the Curiosity mission. He knew he was on safe ground because works of the federal government are automatically in the public domain. So he was surprised to find that no fewer than five other media organizations (mostly television stations, including some from overseas) had "claimed" the content of his video through YouTube's Content ID system.
