Oracle Sues Companies It Says Provide Solaris OS Support In Illegal Manner

aodash Re:Oracle will do just fine (154 comments)

Nonsense. I work for a fairly large university in the NE. We were an virtually exclusive Sun hardware/Solaris shop. Due to Oracle's behavior, we've moved wholly away on both hardware and software since they acquired Sun. Good riddance. I also know of an enormous urban school district (where I used to work and still know many people) that has done the same. While this is only an N of 2, I doubt we're all that rare.

I work for a University out west, and our story is the same as yours. We had a large Sun/Solaris presense... not anymore.

Opera Mini 3.0 Now Available

aodash Re:Opera Mini != spyware ? (110 comments)

Fair enough - I had forget that the primary market for Opera Mini is cell phones (I don't even browse the web on mine) and not the Wi-Fi enabled PDA I was testing it on. As such I didn't see the point of proxying the connection, especially when I may or may not trust who is proxying it.

Adobe fails to update flash repo, says its not a bug.

aodash aodash writes  |  more than 2 years ago

aodash (776554) writes "Roughly a week ago, Adobe pushed out flash version 11.2.202.235 to patch up a security exploit. Those Linux users that get their updates via yum may or may not have noticed that they were left out in the cold. After a user filed a bug report with Adobe, it was promptly closed as not a bug."

SeaMonkey 2.1 Released

aodash aodash writes  |  more than 3 years ago

aodash (776554) writes ""The SeaMonkey project is proud to present SeaMonkey 2.1: The new major release of the all-in-one Internet suite is available for download now! Building on the same Mozilla platform as Firefox 4, it delivers the latest developments in web technologies such as HTML5, hardware acceleration and improved JavaScript speed."

Additionally, KaiRo put forward a proposal (http://home.kairo.at/blog/2011-06/weekly_status_report_w22_2011) which would allow the SeaMonkey dev process to mirror Firefox's beta/aurora/nightly development process."

SeaMonkey 2.0 released

aodash aodash writes  |  more than 4 years ago

aodash (776554) writes "The SeaMonkey project at Mozilla is excited to release its completely refurbished next generation of the all-in one Internet suite today: SeaMonkey 2.0, now available for free download, melds the ideas behind Netscape Communicator with the modern platform of Firefox 3.5 to create one of the most compelling open source products for advanced Internet users.

The combination of an Internet browser, email & newsgroup client, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools, that has already established a wide user base in its previous incarnations, has been rebuilt on top of the modern Mozilla platform, featuring world-class add-on management among other things."
