A few weeks ago I took a look at how Ubuntu 7.04 handled proprietary file formats such as MP3, WMA and QuickTime movies. Overall the support was good (although I couldn't get QuickTime 7 movie support working) but it seriously bothered me that I had to resort to downloading and making use of codecs which are, well, to be blunt, illegal to use.
We can argue all day long about the technical superiority of Windows versus Macintosh vs UNIX/Linux but, when all is said in done, if they won't use it, there is no reason for us to support it.
Apple Macintosh and Linux users will have one less excuse to pay the taxman when development gets underway on an improved e-tax application compatible with any computer system.Commissioner of Taxation Michael D'Ascenzo announced yesterday the plan to make the eight-year-old application, which allows taxpayers to file their tax returns via the Internet, more widely available to computer users.

The latest release, version 184.108.40.206 includes security fixes, and promises to address some of the long-standing memory leaks that have been a source of concern for many users.

As of November 22nd, Microsoft will sell you TV shows and let you rent movies, both in SD and HD formats, through XBOX Live.

comment A headline like that is bound to draw the ire of the Macintosh faithful. But might an operating system like Linux possibly spell trouble for Apple?
commentary A headline like that is bound to draw the ire of the Macintosh faithful. After all, since Microsoft, which can marshal its forces and target competitors at will with lethal precision, hasn't finished-off Apple after all these years (and I'm not saying that this was necessarily a Redmond goal), how on earth can an operating system like Linux spell trouble for Apple?
Sophos' anti-virus chief, Jan Hruska, says the race to perfect "on-access" virus scanning technology for desktop versions of Linux and FreeBSD has the company's Unix developers "tearing their hair out". The development of on-access scanning for Unix would give Linux users the same the type of technology that protects Windows and Macintosh users when they inadvertently double-click or otherwise attempt to open files infected with viruses such as those bundled into some e-mail attachments.
