It's called "MinGW".
Why not just make the initial user account unprivileged?
In my limited testing, working as a regular unprivileged user is pretty smooth. When I want to do an administrative task, UAC asks me for Administrator password. I don't understand why that can't be the default.
Copyright infringement it is
Actually, while I don't remember GPL being tested in a US court, another free software license was tested and has so far prevailed. I'm talking about the Robert Jacobsen vs. Kamind Associates case:
I'm sure the SFLC lawyers will be citing the Court of Appeals decision.
nVidia proprietary drivers
(...) Fedora 10 includes the latest stable version of X.Org, which means no more support for proprietary nVidia drivers.
That's not true. nVidia drivers repackaged by RPMFusion project are reported to work just fine. See http://rpmfusion.org/ for more details.
This is shaping up to be the best Fedora release so far. A big "thank you" to all contributors.

We have to get some concessions, because our energy is produced mostly from coal, unlike in any other European country. Yes, it's a consequence of the combination of natural resource (un)availability, fear of nuclear power (hence no nuclear power facilities) and the long years of communist regime. And our idiot president has agreed to the green package earlier, so we have to deal with that somehow.
Black helicopters, because you can't call the president "an idiot" in this country anymore...
