No, I am not referring exclusively to those female models hired to promote an OS (I won’t mention which one) wearing skimpy demon costumes.
I was truly encouraged to find that women from all backgrounds and ages were making up an increasingly larger portion of those attending such Linux conferences.
A recent study shows that Microsoft Vista is more vulnerable to malicious code attack than previous versions of Microsoft. Others argue that this is a misreading of the data. But those closest to Microsoft have a different opinion: The increased rate of malicious code attacks on Windows is the fault of the users (victims).

Thanks to a new joint effort between Intel and Wind River, you may soon be running Linux in your car.
The effort will run under the auspices of the Intel led Moblin.org effort and will deal specifically with the in-vehicle infotainment marketplace. The idea is to create a Linux based Open Infotainment Platform that will run on Intel’s Atom processor. According to a release issued by Wind River, BMW, Bosch and Delphi are among the companies that are already supporting the effort.
The actual open source code specification is not yet on the Moblin site though Wind River expects to make it available by August of 2008….
