Podcast: SCO's nosedive, XenSource's new home, Twitter and more...

Summary: This week on the Dan & David Show we discuss the latest twist in SCO's effort to claim ownership of the Unix copyrights. The court ruled that Novell, not SCO, owns the rights, which means the Linux community can breath a sigh of relief.

This week on the Dan & David Show we discuss the latest twist in SCO's effort to claim ownership of the Unix copyrights. The court ruled that Novell, not SCO, owns the rights, which means the Linux community can breath a sigh of relief.

We also analyze the acquisition this week of XenSource by Citrix for $500 million, VMware's rocketing IPO and how it all impact Microsoft's virtualization and hypervisor plans.

In addition, we talked about the greening of datacenters and utility computing, and David explains why he thinks Twitter and its 140 characters presents a challenge to Bloomberg's financial news and data service, or even Reuters and Dow Jones. I'm not convinced.

  • Not cool for hearing impaired people

    One might think podcasting is cool. But definitely not if the recipients are hearing impaired. They are the one being discriminated in the world of podcasting.

  • Add the time-impaired too

    Podcasts may be fine if you want a "show" but I want information. I never listen to these podcasts, because I have to take the time to download them and listen to them. I'd rather read a transcript... and then, I'd even prefer an opinion or news editorial since they are less chatty. I like to chat with my friends, but don't need chattiness in my tech news.

  • If podcast it's searcheable it means you have a transcript

    Gee, I enter a keyword and it tells me the position where that word is on the podcast.

    ...the it means you have a transcript of the podcast! only that you're not letting us access it, only using it as an "indexing" of the spoken words.

    What a waste of time for us!.

    No really, why not provide us with a link to the transcript?. Those who prefer to listen to your beatiful voices can still do it, if they have nothing better to do.
