Last year my isp without my knowledge were doing a trial run for "phorm". It's basically a way to snoop on my surfing habits so they can target me with adverts that will appeal to me (nothing appeals to me, I have a brain and I decide if I want something).

Gnome inches closer to microsoft (with mono)

Posted 04-06-2009 at 04:08 PM by Dubious Dave

I've been a user of Gnome since FC1 and just never had a reason to try another desktop. I starting using Linux initially, because windows was so infuriatingly bad.
