- About Us
Love also talked to NewsForge's Jack Bryar this week about a wide-ranging list of topics, from Caldera's "world's largest" claim to the GPL to Caldera's place in the Open Source community.
Red Hat doesn't like Netscape
But this isn't the Caldera weekly news wrapup. Other news broke out, too. Linux distributor Red Hat announced this week it would dump Netscape for the Mozilla browser once Mozilla reaches the 1.0 version (maybe we should say if Mozilla ever reaches the 1.0 version). For the record, we should mention that the long-awaited browser did announce its 0.9 version this week.
Torvalds doesn't like software subscriptions
Linux father Linus Torvalds punched back at Microsoft this week after the Mundie speech. Torvalds criticized software subscription schemes, like Microsoft's software renting plan announced this week. Torvalds said software subscriptions are just plain bad for customers, although we all know, of course, that Microsoft would never do something to prop up its bottom line at the expense of consumers. (Note sarcasm.)
Also worth reading, if you didn't get enough of the Open Source community's response to Mundie last week, is Torvalds' comments in an interview with ZD Net.
