Blackboard Buys Moodlerooms and Netspot
I don't see how this can kill Moodle, as they are not buying Moodle, just 2 of its partners. There are over 50 partners world-wide that provide funding for Moodle development. They will never get the largest Moodle partner, www.remote-learner.net, who are dedicated to open source.

Time To Dump XP?
Everyone at my company was still using XP until a few months ago when some management changed to Win7... doesn't look like the rest of us will be getting Win7 licenses anytime soon so I've decided to migrate to Ubuntu.

Besides, Wine can probably handle whatever issues come up.

I try explaining this to some people but they don't seem to get it and would still rather waste money on ink and glossy paper.
