Several months ago, some gormless weasel from somewhere stirred up a fuss when he wrote an essay on one of the Nixer sites asking whether the Slackware distro mattered any longer. Its not really worth googling to find the author and the site where it ran, since it seems to have created an inadvertent meme in the Linux community as advocates, fanboys and editorial writers picked up upon the concept of Slackware 'mattering.' Misguided and myopic as the essay was, it certainly provoked a reaction. For a number of very good reasons, the question stuck in many a craw, and triggered a defensive barrage of articles telling the clueless author just why Slack remains a vital distro and a necessary flavor option in the distro hit list, despite the fact that most other distros are moving on to DVD size releases and trying to outrace each other to be latest and greatest..

NVu, an HTML editor now in beta release, has the potential to be the next great WYSIWYG HTML editor.

have a dirty little secret. When I started to build my first Web site a few years back, I used Microsoft's FrontPage. The main reason I chose to use FrontPage was its WYSIWYG facility. It made creating tables, changing the look of the text, renaming HTML pages and many other tasks a snap. For the professionals among you, this may be heresy, but after cleaning up the generated code, I had a useful site. For a number of years, I have been looking for equivalent Linux products. The wait may be almost over.

Although nothing yet approaches FrontPage's ease-of-use, we now have a number of products that are truly WYSIWYG editors. They may grow into something much more.

? Bruce Schneier has linked to yet another study that shows that people don't securely delete data from drives before selling them. This group purchased 111 supposedly clean hard drives and recovered a lot of sensitive information including "national insurance numbers, evidence of a married woman’s affair and detailed biographical information about children." I think the major issue is that your common guy thinks that formatting the drive is the solution to erase data, and anything more sophisticated than that is too difficult or expensive. Here I'll show you how to easily shred a drive using free Open Source tools.

REDMOND, WA -- According to a "massive" study conducted by the impartial Microsoft Marketing Department, Windows 2003 servers outperform Red Hat Linux in every possible configuration.

"This was a real eye-opener," explained Microsoft spokesperson Harold Fudd. "There was simply no competition between the two. We can only conclude that people still clinging to the legacy, mediocre Linux platform have absolutely no clue."
