Strange Ideas About Freedom of Speech

http://ever-increasing-entropy.blogspot.com

If you write something is the New York Times obligated to publish it? Must the Washington Post run a sharply worded op-ed? Can I compel Fox News to give voice to my liberal opinions? The answer to all these questions is an unequivocal no. Private media is permitted editorial control of their content. Websites and blogs are no different. They are simply a newer, different form of private media.

CentOS is NOT Dying, It’s Just Bad Reporting

http://boycottnovell.com

Media FUD about CentOS is refuted. Boycott Novell runs on a CentOS server, so it is painful to watch The Register and some other publications spreading FUD about the project.

Is Jupiter Broadcasting’s Linux Action Show Anti-GNU/Linux?

http://boycottnovell.com

THIS subject is not exactly new, but it is something that we never wrote about before. Vicious attacks on Richard Stallman have already come* from the "Linux" [sic] Action Show (Jupiter Broadcasting), so it is clear that the mentality over there is a little different from some.

CNET Senility of the Day: Sun Buying Novell

http://boycottnovell.com

It's hard to take CNET seriously. Megatrolls from CNET tend to include people like Don Reisinger, who generate outrageous headlines just to flame and receive attention.
