Post-Christmas Sum-up

Christmas has been and gone, and as usual I’ve been terrible at keeping this blog up to date! Jess and I went to France for Christmas to see my parents. My dad celebrated his 70th birhday on the 24th, and Christmas Day was nice.

We’re now in Devon until the 6th of January, and looking forward to the New Year. We’re also hoping to see the new Chronicles of Narnia film at some point in the next few days.

Other than that, I’d say there’s been very little news here!

Why I don’t like Microsoft

Microsofties always wonder why I dislike Microsoft so much. Some may even understand me, along with the thousands, if not millions, of other people who share the same dislike. But I’ve never really been able to put my finger on why until now…

This latest story is an account of how Microsoft managed to have edited a UN document, removing references to Free Software and changing the stance on DRM. I’ll let you make your own mind up by reading the story (it’s quite short): The Complete Story of the Vienna Conclusions by Georg C. F. Greve.
