German Company To Install Linux On 10,000 PCs
I'm skeptical about the frequently discussed difficulty of adoption if it's well planned. If most of the companies tools are web-based (and not forced to use MS due to dependencies on ActiveX, and the like) then it's entirely feasible that you wouldn't need to retrain employees much at all.

Court Returns Stolen Stargate MMO To Founder
TFA uses 'it' so many times between 3 companies I have no idea what's going on. It sounds like a kindergarten argument over possession of a sandbox - where the sandbox is assets and IP.

Why Are Video Game Movies So Awful?
I liked Max Payne, and for the most part Hitman. I found Resident Evil hard to follow, and a little shallow, but it wasn't all bad. Silent Hill was good for a horror movie.
