They'll all convene in the courtroom and then it will be read.Lots are live blogging, but here's The Verge http://live.theverge.com/apple-samsung-verdict-live/ , which historically has been the most complete with the details, if you want to follow blow by blow. And you don't have to update the page.

Subject: Google: No Paid Bloggers Here, Your Honor

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

Remember how last week the judge in the all-but-concluded case of Oracle vs. Google ordered the two companies to disclose whom, if anyone, they might have been paying to write about the case? Yeah, that.So anyway, today was the deadline for the companies to drop their filings, and, well, here they are. Short answer: Oracle reiterated what it said before, that it had retained the patent law blogger Florian Mueller, he of Foss Patents, as a paid consultant in the case, though this wasn’t exactly news since Mueller and Oracle had both already disclosed the relationship. It also mentioned an Oracle corporate blogger who wrote about the case while it was going on.Google for its part appears to have shrugged. “Neither Google nor its counsel has paid an author, journalist, commentator or blogger to report or comment on any issues in this case. And neither Google nor its counsel has been involved in any quid pro quo in exchange for coverage of or articles about the issues in this case.”

Subject: Apple v. Samsung verdict is in: $1 billion loss for Samsung

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

Apple's three utility patents, all found infringed, cover features like double-tapping to zoom and the "bounce back" technology that snaps images back into place. Apple's four design patents cover elements like the contours and shape of the iPhone.The jury also rejected Samsung's arguments that the patents were invalid. Samsung escaped punishment on only one of Apple's patents, a design patent asserted only against two Samsung tablets.Samsung's counterattack against Apple, using six of its own patents, went nowhere. The jury found they weren't infringed.

It's been quite the all-star cast of companies joining the Linux Foundation over the past year or so, and next week will see the addition of another doozy. Following in the footsteps of Broadcom, Nvidia, and Samsung--all of which joined the nonprofit consortium recently--none other than Twitter will announce on Tuesday that it is joining the foundation as well.

Sadly, even this latest release does not ship with a graphical package manager. All package management tasks have to be accomplished from the command line. Aside from that, I think this release has a lot of goodies to offer, and is what a detailed review.
