Most, perhaps, but certainly not all... just need to look at how many games are "redistribution denied" in the World of Spectrum archive. Codemasters, Mastertronic and Elite spring to mind -- the former still very much in business, likewise the latter who also market retro Spectrum hardware and software of their own. (I presume Sega now own the rights to all the Mastertronic games, and I can't imagine they're especially keen to let randomers play them for free either.)
Yep. First day after the Sun deal closed, every member of staff on our Sun campus was told, in person by the local Oracle suits, "make no mistake, this is an acquisition, not a merger. Welcome to Oracle."
I'm sure his family and friends are asking all the questions that need to be asked right now. No need for a public investigation unless they don't get suitable answers.
Xbox Cloud Storage is definitely down as well (and presumably related) -- http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-live-status
You can switch on "Verbatim" mode on the results page when that happens, then it'll only search for exactly what you typed...
If you don't want people to see your photos, don't put them on the internet.
Sun never did any such thing. The only things in StarOffice that weren't in OpenOffice.org were license-encumbered features like commercial fonts and dictionaries.
Er, you obviously haven't heard how much Oracle are investing in SPARC, then...?
Exactly what "Java Based Crap" is present in OpenSolaris to be removed?
One of my university lecturers (Duncan Smeed at Strathclyde) also worked on it...
"It also has something you'd never expect to see on a Sinclair: a decent keyboard".
Eh? All Sinclairs from the 48K Spectrum+ onwards had that keyboard (or better).
Oh, and one of my lecturers at university co-designed the Dragon 32 :)
They will remove or mask any image you ask them to, within reason. However, since their software blurs all faces and number plates automatically by default, who's going to know they're your kids anyway?
Sun's model was never to make money selling open source software support, though. It was to sell big SPARC iron, which it did very successfully until companies stopped buying SPARC iron. And they were too late to the x86 server party-- or in fact, they were too soon, but fatally decided to walk away just before everyone else turned up. And then they turned up again just as everyone else had already paired off and started making out in the kitchen.
Mark Shuttleworth had nothing to do with most of the UI improvements you've mentioned. The network manager, device eject buttons etc. are all upstream changes that Ubuntu has just picked up in the usual way.
To be honest, I'd hardly call the new package manager the most interesting aspect of Indiana; there's nothing wrong with Sun's current SVR4 package management that a decent GUI wouldn't fix. The new installer, however, is wicked-- Solaris installations have never been for the faint-hearted, but now it only takes a handful of clicks.
Agree with your comment about Murdock, though, seems ridiculous that Sun have never produced a Live CD before.
