Nvidia Engineer Asks How the Company Can Improve Linux Support
Well, the market they care about in this case is desktops, so all other niches are not relevant to the discussion.
Bionic Eye Patient Tests Planned For 2013
None of those are comparatives, so he probably meant the 'other ones'.
Whistleblower In Limbo After Reporting H-1B Visa Fraud At Infosys
That's true, but it wasn't Jesus who did that, it was the Bolivians! Ask Evo Morales! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnGCQGFt81Q
(skip to 30s for the relevant bit, but the whole thing is hilarious)

GPL, Copyleft On the Rise

Open Source Alternative To Dropbox?
TrueCrypt might not be the best option, if you plan on having the image mounted in several machines, due to sync issues as mentioned by sibling posts. If you're on *nix, encfs is a better solution, as it works individually on each file, and can handle the updates without remounting.
Google WebRTC: Can It Replace Skype?
i haven't much used the gtalk audio/video calls, but I don't think it has multi-party calls, screen sharing or PSTN integration, both for dial out and dial in (except maybe through Google voice? But even then it'd be US only).

Skype App Updated, Allows 3G Calling On the iPhone

Why I Steal Movies (Even Ones I'm In)
three words for you: stop, stop, play
How Smart Are You?
Probably you'd see a similar distribution, but shifted somewhat to the right. Although we have our share of stupid people making stupid comments here, head over to youtube, digg, or some other "wider audience" site and you'll find whole new levels of stupidity.
