Misc. Weekend News

By on
Back from a long weekend here (local holiday), here you have a few news tidbits I caught around the web:

[URL=http://61.175.211.198/vdown/newsinfo/win2004beta.htm]WinBeta.org[/URL] is hosting several leaked screenshots from Microsoft's next big thing, Windows Codename Longhorn.

Is Microsoft losing ground to Linux? at [URL=http://news.com.com/2100-1001-964310.html?tag=fd_top]CNet[/URL]. Report on the not so good press Microsoft is getting lately; not so uncommon being MS, anyway :D

OEM PC offerings alert... [URL=http://news.com.com/2100-1001-964360.html?tag=lh]Dell[/URL] selling PCs at Costco & Gateway offering a new [URL=http://news.com.com/2100-1040-964238.html?tag=lh]$399 PC[/URL] (after $100 rebate); it's a Celeron, not intended for the performance freak but would accomodate quite well as family PC.

Rumour mill: [URL=http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=6038]AMD[/URL] said to lay off around 20% of North American staff last Friday, just a rumour for the time being, though.
