IBM's New Motion on Linux Aims to 'Call SCO's Bluff'

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1638009,00.asp

IBM is trying to use SCO as a punching bag this week as Big Blue fires 
off another motion for partial summary judgment in its legal slugfest 
over Linux and Unix copyright issues.

IBM on Monday asked the U.S. District Court in Utah to rule that it 
should win immediately on its eighth counterclaim, which regards 
copyright infringement. In that counterclaim, IBM asserts that because 
The SCO Group Inc. has sold Linux�which included more than 783,000 lines 
of code of IBM's copyrighted material�the court should immediately grant 
IBM summary judgment and a permanent injunction.

What's the difference between 'Build' and 'Publish'
Greetings....this subject might belong in one of the Visual Studio forums but it's so danged noob-sque.... I'm particularly confused by the 'Precompiled' term in the Publish operation. I'm interested in the path of least resistance between my VS project and my public IIS webserver. thx--steve...  Build means creating the assembly of the project ( .dll or .exe file) wich contains MSIL and a manifest file. When you publish your project u just produce the structure of your folder without producing a .dll file when you want to deploy your Web Project. ...

Red Hat's Fedora 11: So easy you'll forget it's Linux
Red Hat has taken heat over the past few years for allegedly neglecting the personal computer in favor of more profitable enterprise servers. It's a fair critique: Red Hat is an enterprise software company, a decision it made years ago, and to good effect. But anyone thinking that Red Hat has somehow forgotten consumer markets in its rush to win the enterprise need only try the final release of Fedora 11, its community-focused operating system for desktops and laptops. I've been evaluating Fedora 11 for the past week and find it polished and professional while meeting ...

Greetings to All from Au, Have a NetWare Perl 5.8.4 and wanted to tweak File\Spec\NW.pm to try and standardise on '/' separators. If I run a test script (t/uni/lower.t) with an unmodified NW.pm, it calls t/uni/case.pl, that, in case.pl, (when the path separators are '\'), the $file is '..\lib\unicore\To\Lower.pl' and the following code portion works, with $simple getting a returned table: sub casetest { my ($base, $spec, $func) = @_; my $file = File::Spec->catfile(File::Spec->catdir(File::Spec->updir, "lib", &qu...

I created an ASP:Hyperlink and set the ImageURL attribute so the link will be the image.If the image is missing, I would like it to display a 'missing image' pic that I have.  I know you can use the OnError attribute of the <img> tag to run some javascript to change it.Unfortunately I can't find a way to access the Hyperlink's Image that is inside it, so I can add an Attribute so the resulting <img> tag will have an OnError attribute inside of it.Any help?If my Hyperlink is called 'foo'....would I do...  ((Image) foo.Controls[0]).Attributes.Add(&...
