I just received a funny link in an email. Apparently M$ is now into free software. Well, it’s actually not free as in free speech, but rather free as in free beer. Just wonderful how they are taking advantage of the ambiguous English language…
Here’s the link, you have to use a non-M$ browser to “enjoy it” (I’ve only tested it with Mozilla-based browsers).
Well, it sure looks like it. After reading Cory Doctorow’s posting about how UN is about to kill podcasts I can’t help but wonder where this world is headed. UN’s homepage greets you with “Welcome to the UN. It’s your world.” It’s increasingly looking like they are turning into yet another US lapdog. It’s a pity, because what the world really needs is a body with power that can stand against the short-termist and often idiotic thinking that the US seems to be filled to the brim with.
