Unbundling Microsoft Windows

Globalisation Institute - Brussels' most popular think tank website - Unbundling Microsoft Windows
Computers in the European Union should be sold without a bundled operating system, according to this submission to the European Commission. It says that the bundling of Microsoft Windows with computers is not in the public interest, and prevents meaningful competition in the operating system market.


Maybe now linux will hit mainstream desktop, once people get charged $200-300 on their way out of the store with a new computer. And hopefully this will push developers to get linux truly desktop ready, like getting webcams to actually work and have manufacturers create drivers for devices etc.

Announcing openSUSE 10.3 RC1
Thursday, September 20th, 2007 by Francis Giannaros. After quite a few rebuilds and testing, the openSUSE team is happy to announce that RC1 looks brilliant and is now available for download. We consider this release to be feature complete, stable, and suitable for testing from any user. For more information on the release schedule, take a look at the Roadmap.
Since I'm so pissed at ubuntu right now, (gutsy gibbon sucks balls) I think I'm gonna try good old Suse, I've had some experience with them before so wth! let's see if they can make my ATI AIW 9600 work.

Fucking penguin


Compiz Fusion » Welcome
Compiz Fusion is the result of a merge between the well-known Beryl composite window manager and Compiz Extras, a community set of improvements to the Compiz composite window manager. Compiz Fusion aims to provide an easy and fun-to-use windowed environment, allowing use of the graphics hardware to render each individual window and the entire screen, to provide some impressive effects, speed and usefulness. The first Compiz Fusion developer release was Compiz Fusion 0.5.2 on August 13th 2007, shortly after Compiz 0.5.2 was released.
I just find it funny that Linux and its many variants are focusing so much on bling rather than actually much needed user function. I've used Ubuntu and Redhat for our servers at work, I even use it for my webserver at home. But one thing that really annoys me is the lack of webcam support and the fact that almost 90% of the time all this bling doesn't even work!

Vista at least performed well on my ATI All-in-wonder 9600 but Ubuntu fucking crapped out!!!! They say its the driver blame it on ATI blah blah, interestingly I tried Sabayon and on the fucking livecd it actually had the uber spinning desktop cube, but after I installed and it, the damn thing said something about direct rendering etc. fuck fuck fuck!!! What the fuck is wrong with this fuck, I spent like my entire evening trying to get this fuck working and nothing!

Linux ready for desktop, yeah probably by the time we send a guy to saturn or something.

Gravure Idol Minori Hatsune (初音みのり) to do AV? - Sweat Pig

Gravure Idol Minori Hatsune (初音みのり) to do AV? - Sweat Pig

The sweet and cute girl that was on the front page of SG before I switched the blog over to blogger.com

Apparently she's doing AV now instead of just being a lame gravure tease model :) Trying to download the torrents, although the one from Javtalk seems to have no seeders. The AV_nonsense file has some seeders, though not many.
