bzzzt Re:Now available (176 comments)

Yeah. I remember reading a magazine at the time claiming the cheat code was an acronym for "smashing pumpkins into small pieces of putrid debris". Easy to remember ;)

New Wii Menu Update Targets Homebrew Again

bzzzt Re:As a Wii Owner (258 comments)

Microsoft Office 2007 In Linux With WINE

bzzzt Re:Really, why? (224 comments)

It's not a question of "speaking" the proprietary stuff, but also of interpreting it correctly and making sure the software acts on the data in a useful way. Calendaring is a difficult problem and not really interesting to the "typical OSS hacker".
There's progress being made though, see http://www.openchange.org/

bzzzt Re:Silverlight (329 comments)

Microsoft supported Moonlight? All I've seen is some tech-demo thing which craps out on 90% of the Silverlight content I've found. At least Flash works...
