Airbus filed a petition in late August supporting Microsoft's appeal to overturn the EU's decision fining MSFT some $605 million (and use the money to subsidize French Farmers) over the Media player flap. Airbus said that, by the same logic, it could one day be forced to allow makers of galleys and seats other than its choice to outfit its new planes. The problem was that this was done in private. Only a few days ago it was made public.

Well yesterday Airbus said “oops we don't believe this was a good idea” and withdrew its petition.”

Yea Right. Mark my words, the European Commission pressured Airbus using the anti-US European governments that prop up Airbus to drop its brief via pressure from Airbus'  parent the (heavily subsidized) European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company.

These strongarm measures have to go. The EU should look up capitalism in the dictionary.

Aiming to reconquer Wall Street's heart after a 2 year long nosedive (and promote its new Solaris 10 operating system) , Sun Microsystems President and Operating Chief Jonathan Schwartz FINALLY took direct aim at rival Red Hat Inc.

Speaking today here at a conf in New York, Schwartz said Sun Microsystems is offering a 50% discount on a Solaris right-to-use license for customers who are frustrated with Red Hat's Linux operating system.

Sun has to embrace Linux, not try to fight it. Game over.

No.

But bloggers are better fact checkers than Dan Rather, so I guess you can say that bloggers are other forms of news sites, opinion sites, and technical resources.

At least Michael Moore admits he is biased.

Time to resign Dan.

Tech Ed is all over for me did three sessions:

SQL Server Notification Services

XML in Yukon

ASP .NET Cache

I had about 400 people in each session and the Notification Services session was one of the top ranked sessions so far with an 8.0. (More on Score Whores and XML this weekend when I get home.)

Now I start counting the days to Kilimanjaro....

We are all here and Clemens is not. So we got drunk and called him. Too bad for him.

Did two sessions today, SQL Server Notification Services and ASP .NET Cache Engine. Totally rocked about 400 people in each class. XML in Yukon is tomorrow.
