Homebrew Wii USB Loader gets demoed on video (Engadget)

Mar 30th 2009 6:01AM ...Wait, again? Man, this guy needs to find some testers who won't leak his software.

But, as far as I know, they haven't released their themes yet.

The hardware manufacturers are no making their own themes because that would defeat the purpose of Android; that is, the hardware guys stay in hardware.

Windows 7 or KDE 4? (Download Squad)

Feb 7th 2009 12:28AM WINE is NOT an emulator! The programs do run natively. It's as much as a go-between as one that allows you to run 32-bit programs to run in 64-bit Windows/Linux (dynamic recompiler + libraries).

Linux itself is a testament to why you don't need major software makers to have good software. Besides, if there were major software makers on Linux, there wouldn't be an incentive for programmers to write alternatives (that are FREE and can be ported to other OSes).

Now all MS needs to do (or needs to be forced to do) is to add a friendly GUI and let 3rd parties contribute to a "repository", where the package manager gets its packages from. Think of it as an App Store for Windows.

This isn't a new thing; Linux has really good package managers. Theoretically, Ubuntu can come without Firefox and still install other browsers.

Microsoft accused by EU of harming web browser competition, again (Engadget)

Jan 7th 2009 11:06PM "Cheaper than the iPod Touch"? "microSD expansion" (I have a ton of microSD and microSDHC cards lying around)? SOLD! I'm glad I didn't get a iPod Touch. But I wonder what kind of processor power it has.
