LXer: DistroWatch Weekly: New SUSE and FreeBSD releases, wrecking the Internet, DSL Linux interview
 
Published at LXer:

Welcome to this year's 19th issue of DistroWatch Weekly. The long delayed SUSE Linux 10.1, which is expected to be released on Thursday, should be the highlight of the week, but FreeBSD 6.1 is also likely to hit the download mirrors within the next day or two. In other news, confirmation of the Debian "etch" December release date target, an introduction to an Ubuntu-based live CD with a collection of genealogy software, and an announcement by a project developing a range of Gentoo-based virtual machines for VMware and Xen. In the interview section, we talk with the two lead developers of Damn Small Linux about their new product - DSL-N. Finally, don't miss the chilling opinion piece by Robert Storey who appeals to all US citizens to fight against the newly proposed COPE legislation. Happy reading!

Wow. That article entitled "Wrecking the Internet: Turning Gold into Lead" was a real eye-opener for me. It appears, based on the article at least, that the Communications Opportunity, Promotion, and Enhancement (COPE) Act of 2006 would be destructive for all of us.

If you live in the US and value the freedom of the Internet as it currently is, you need to write your representatives in Washington and make it very clear that if they vote for COPE, you will be voting against them in the next election. They all have web sites and despite all appearances, they do pay attention to them. Don't use a form letter, it dilutes the message. However, do write and express your opposition to this bill, which permits nothing less than US telecom giants buying the Internet.

Complain, and complain loudly right now.
