Red Hat Release 8

This is the latest in a series of strong releases that are just getting stronger.

Red Hat has begun an effort to use its position as the dominant seller of the Linux operating system to try to smooth over a long-running divide about the look and feel of the OS.

###Users are King

Red Hat’s Bluecurve airbrushes out some differences between KDE and Gnome, altering icons and menu selections KDE or Gnome users would otherwise see and making them look the same.

This is key to the success of linux… too many choices is a bad thing.

Congrats Europe

What happened to the vaunted US team?

The European team called it “doing a McGinley” when a few of the members teased Captain Sam Torrance and said he had outsmarted himself.

Torrance may have made the bold play, but it was Paul McGinley who showed the wisdom in his captain’s decision as the Europeans wrested the Ryder Cup from the favored Americans on a sun-kissed Sunday at The Belfry.

It was a wonderful [[Ryder Cup]] this year.
