This sounds like the Gawker media method where they create starred commentators who can approve/reject posts from the masses.

Google Announces Chrome OS, For Release Mid-2010

jimand Re:Yawn, another distro? (1089 comments)

It's different because it's Google. I see your free email address is @gmail.com, not @hotmail.com. You've bought in to Google at least once already.

Asus Slaps Linux In the Face

jimand Re:Didn't plan on buying another Asus EEE anyway (644 comments)

I totally agree. I got my EEE in February and the included OS (Xandros) was running Firefox 2.10 and could only be updated using a command line, plus lots of other minor annoyances. Xandros hadn't upgraded their repository to Firefox 3 yet. If they can't keep FF up-to-date they I didn't have much hope for any of the other included packages.

I'm now running Easy Peasy 1.1 have access to all the Ubuntu packages. I haven't tried it but I assume the Ubuntu Netbook remix would be just as good.

jimand Bidding war? (324 comments)

I assume the Sun shareholders still have to vote on the offer. IBM can go away,sharpen their pencils to see if they can make money with a $9.75/share hostile offer. I wouldn't call it over yet.

Mozilla Donates $100K To the Ogg Project

jimand Re:Mozilla and Open Standards (334 comments)

I agree, sort of. Mozilla support of ogg may encourage it on websites but as long as there is a shortage of devices that play ogg (particularly ipods) it will never become as popular as .png for example.
