2005/02/20 994 Security research suggests Linux has fewer flaws
The Linux operating system has many times fewer bugs than typical commercial software, according to an upcoming report. The conclusion is the result of a four-year research project conducted by code-analysis company Coverity. The project found 985 bugs in the 5.7 million lines of code that make up the latest version of the Linux core operating system, or kernel. A typical commercial program of similar size usually has more than 5,000 flaws or defects, according to data from Carnegie Mellon University. "Linux is a very good system in terms of bug density," said Seth Hallem, CEO of Coverity, a San Francisco company that makes flaw-detection tools for software written in C and C++ programming languages.

Tim Berners-Lee, the man credited with the creation of the World Wide Web, received a knight by Queen Elizabeth. Berners-Lee, 48, was knighted in recognition of his "services to the global development of the Internet" for helping to invent the Web. Berners-Lee is a British citizen who lives in the U.S. and serves as director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), which he also helped found. He was officially made a Knight Commander of the British Empire (KBE). The rank of Knight Commander is the second most senior rank of the order of the British Empire. The London-born Berners-Lee graduated from the Queen's College at Oxford University, England in 1976. Berners-Lee sowed the seeds of the Web in 1980 where, working as a software engineer for the European Particle Physics Laboratory in Geneva (CERN), he wrote "Enquire," a program for storing information. This program formed the conceptual basis for the Web. In 1989, he proposed the Web as a global project designed to allow people to work together by combining their knowledge in a Web of hypertext documents. In October 1990, Berners-Lee wrote the first Web server, "httpd", and the first client, "World Wide Web," a what-you-see-is-what-you-get hypertext browser/editor which ran in the NeXTStep environment, according to his biography. He is credited with spearheading initial specifications of the Web's fundamental protocols, URI (define), HTTP (define), and a markup language for linking documents and Web pages, HTML (define). He later documented the Web's birth and evolution in the book "Weaving The Web," published in 1999

2003/12/02 628 Cable firms bet on broadband speed, not price
At the end of 2002, there were 5 million DSL subscribers in the United States, compared with more than twice as many--10.5 million--cable broadband subscribers, according to market-research company In-Stat/MDR. By the end of 2003, the gap is expected to remain, with 7.5 million DSL subscribers compared with 13.3 million for cable, In-Stat/MDR estimates. However, the researcher said its projections don't take into account the latest round of DSL price cuts and warned that it may revise its numbers.
Cable companies offer temporary discounts to first-time broadband subscribers that can cut monthly fees by more than half for the first six months or so of service. Ultimately, though, they don't want a price war. Instead, they hope customers will pay a normal price of between $45 and $55 a month for speeds up to 40 times faster than those available with standard dial-up connections.
In contrast, $26.95 a month gets subscribers to SBC Communications' industry-low promotional DSL plan speeds that are about five times those available through America Online's $23.90 a month dial-up service. The SBC price applies for the first year of service, then rises to the normal rate of $39.95. ZDNet 2003/10/14

And if local economies grow, it could mean new markets for the goods and services of U.S. businesses.
