In no particular order (other than Gentoo):
There is just nothing like it that I have used.
2. Sun finally realising they can't ignore Linux.
3. MS trustworthy computing
A leaked email informed the world of BG's new initiative. A whole
month devoted to finding security bugs. The result a security
advisory lumping a dozen or so security patches. Wow, it really
worked. Or did it? On close examination only a couple of the
bugs were found by MS. Trustworthy my arse.
4. MS admitting their SW was insecure and it would take years to make
their SW secure. Duh, tell us something new. At least they now
admit their SW is insecure.
5. Linux starting to make serious inroads on the corporate / government
6. Linux having 2 systems in the top 500 super computers.
7. SO and OO getting the recognition they deserve.
Playing DVD's from any region on my laptop.
Watching him being torn apart thread after thread.
I've enjoyed so many of the posts made by Linux advocates. The
standard of advocacy has never been higher even allowing for
the deliberate attempt of the wintrolls to disrupt the group.
11. '^begin '
Need I say more. :-)
12. The XBOX running Linux
13. MS Licensing 6
Shooting themselves in the foot. There again they had no choice.
MS are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
1. The total sellout in the anti-trust case.
MS were proven guilty of illegally using their monopoly status
on the desktop. Nothing done about the acts of perjury during
Gentoo 1.4 delayed until the new year. What am I going to do
for the next 2 weeks? :-)
3. Feeding the wintrolls
I'm as guilty as any M'Lord.
I know I have missed loads of things. It has beem a great year for
anyone who enjoys Linux.
2003 will be even better.
