Show us the code!

February 27, 2007

Show us the code!

Yes, this is another campaign from the Linux community against Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer, for his bluffs that Linux has stolen some code from Microsoft.

Microsoft is claiming from the day they had deal with Novell, that Linux has been build using some stolen code from Microsoft. These claims are just like crying like a baby for having no love from others, because the other baby (Linux) got all the love :P.

Do you think your code is good enough that some one even think about stealing it? If you really think Linux has stolen your code and then can you please point out, where is that code used in Linux. Oh, I’m sorry! But please hire a C Programmer for finding that one out. Because Linux is not written in C#, VB or any other .Net framework :P.

Make your contributions, and it’s not only for Linux users. If you use Windows only, you should also ask them to show us the code.

Anti Internet Explorer Campaign

February 4, 2007

WordPress.com is vert strongly supporting browsehappy.com, the site browsehappy.com is making people aware of security issues in Internet Explorer.

The home page of browsehappy.com claims that, “Internet Explorer can make your computer unsafe. Why not switch to a browser that’s more secure?”. Many people have shared their stories on the site. If you are being victim of Internet Explorer vulnerabilities and have made a switch to any other browser, then you must share your story too.

The site is promoting 4 popular browsers (Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Safari).


How do others take this campaign… “Anti Internet Explorer Campaign” or “People awareness campaign”…

Update: The logo will be shown when you’ll be accessing the admin area of your blog using an insecure browser (you know it) 😉
