Ask Slashdot: System Administrator Vs Change Advisory Board
Dr. Seuss: “Oh, the jobs people work at! Out west near Hawtch-Hawtch there's a Hawtch-Hawtcher bee watcher, his job is to watch. Is to keep both his eyes on the lazy town bee, a bee that is watched will work harder you see. So he watched and he watched, but in spite of his watch that bee didn't work any harder not mawtch. So then somebody said "Our old bee-watching man just isn't bee watching as hard as he can, he ought to be watched by another Hawtch-Hawtcher! The thing that we need is a bee-watcher-watcher!". Well, the bee-watcher-watcher watched the bee-watcher. He didn't watch well so another Hawtch-Hawtcher had to come in as a watch-watcher-watcher! And now all the Hawtchers who live in Hawtch-Hawtch are watching on watch watcher watchering watch, watch watching the watcher who's watching that bee. You're not a Hawtch-Watcher you're lucky you see!”

Russian President Interested In Funding ReactOS
There are OS projects that are not clones of existing systems, but they never gain any traction because the applications are just not there. The whole point of ReactOS is to come up with something that will allow the use of a big chunk of existing applications.
The only chance of getting a new OS off the ground is to start it on a new type of platform, and even that is dicey at best. WebOS hasn't exactly taken off.

Sad. Not only that, but it's likely that more Americans can name the Steelers offensive line than will ever even hear the name Wernher Von Braun. You see, our stupidity knows no borders.

Fedora Infrastructure Compromised
Or digging further:
# Push access to packages in the Fedora SCM.

Gmail Creator Says Chrome OS Is As Good As Dead
People keep saying this kind of thing. I remember predictions of the failure of the ipod too. And Ken Olsen from DEC said in 1977 "there is no reason for any individual to have a computer at his home."
Smart companies are going to dig into this kind of r&d to help meet the needs that we can't predict from where we are. If all a company does is make things that are obviously necessary or immediate successes, then we don't really make much progress.

Amazon Fake Products and Fake Reviews
Caveat emptor. For everything, from anywhere.
If you're depending on reviews from a single source to save you from risk, you deserve everything you get.
Make sure the return policy fits your needs before you buy or just don't buy.
