MC2 Blog: Can Koala Be A Window's 7 Killer?


Ubuntu's Karmic Koala

bares fangs at Windows 7


From The Register:

Review Ubuntu 9.10 - aka Karmic Koala - is taking the fight to Microsoft and its new Windows 7 operating system.

software installer, better disk encryption, online services,

and quite a bit more to the
popular Linux desktop.



Fast NEWS:

Costco begins accepting Food Stamps.


Walmart Begins Selling Coffins Online.

Reaping discounts
Wal-Mart has started selling coffins on its Web site. The move follows a similar one by rival Costco. Wal-Mart put up about 15 caskets and dozens of urns on its Web site last week, at prices from $999 for steel caskets to the Sienna Bronze Casket,
which sells for $3,199

Scary shopping

Sears says it will offer what it calls “Black Friday doorbuster” deals beginning this Friday, nearly a month before the traditional day-after-Thanksgiving sales. Sears says the offers will rotate each week and be available 7 a.m.-noon each Saturday. However, it’s kicking off the effort with a special markdown this Friday. Experts say Sears’ decision to start the sales nearly a month in advance shows just how worried retailers are about what’s expected to be a grim holiday season.
