Sun promises agenda-free MySQL development agenda

@Matt Bryant

"Sun are going to tie it so tightly to Solaris it's gonna squeak!"

This seems pretty unlikely since the Java Enterprise System runs on Linux, Windows, and HP-UX, as well as Solaris. Never forget that, like Apple, Sun writes software to get people to buy their hardware, since hardware (and hardware support contracts) is where the big margins are. Once you've bought the server from them, they couldn't care less what OS you slap on it, but they would like to sell you some storage to go with it.

Did you just criticize Oracle for being proprietary and a monopolist, and then plug Microsoft in the same post? Wow...

@William

I believe that GMail ignores delete commands from POP3 clients. You have to configure this in the Forwarding and POP3 section of GMail's settings.

Oracle's got a giant Red Hat fork coming, says spaceman

re: Oracle need to worry

http://sources.redhat.com/rhdb -- Already been done. It's based on PostgreSQL, and from what I've seen it's pretty cool, but I don't think it has managed to gain much traction thus far.

Hacking WoW and the pursuit of knowledge

What's a hacker

People who prattle on defending "the true meaning of hacker" now irritate me even more than people who use the word incorrectly. The overwhelming majority of people don't know the difference between a hacker and a cracker, and perhaps more importantly, they don't care. It's over, you lost, the media won, choose another moniker for yourself. How about "amateur computer scientist" (unless you do it for a living in which case you should probably be calling yourself a computer scientist in the first place)?
