WorldWatch Week in Review
We covered a significant announcement about a new open-source search engine, called Nutch. Although it is not yet on-line, it is something needed as the Internet consolidates.
But the most significant announcement came from China, where the government has outlawed new purchases of Microsoft software for government use. We also noted an interesting article from the BBC about hidden information in MS Word documents; it's ironic that both appeared the same week, as China definitely is worried about security!
We also featured a guest editorial from David Sugar about a false prophet in the OSS movement. Of course, we couldn't resist posting some more about the famous SCO v. Everyone Else case; things seem to be winding down as the FUD is merely rehash, and new evidence is coming to light that weakens their case.
Willy Smith is Editor in Chief of WorldWatch and lives in Costa Rica.
