Who wins if AOL swallows RedHat?

It's hard to imagine of a deal that would allow Microsoft to pose as a champion of choice and plurality, but the acquisition of the leading Linux company by dismal media conglomerate AOL/Time Warner may just do the trick.

Borland's Dead C Scrolls

Historic computer documents are often lost in the mists of time. But not always - and it's with great pleasure that we can offer you a manuscript of great antiquity that's never been seen before. It's actually a prequel to Verity Stob's Borland old testament histories we linked to here, and carbon dating has confirmed that it was written in AD 1996, shortly after Anders Heljsberg left to join Microsoft.
