Quote of the day:
"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man." -- George Bernard Shaw


1. Editor's Note: Call For Entries: Reader Photo Contest

It's that time again. Last fall, prompted by some fascinating photography submitted by a reader, I asked for submissions to a photo contest that made your best photographic work accessible to the large audience of InformationWeek readers.

I got a wealth of impressive entries and all of you voted in favor of this as the top photo submitted by a reader.

So I'm running another contest. Send me the most interesting, offbeat, compelling, or scenic pictures you've taken in recent months. I'll sort through them, pick those that I think the most readers will enjoy, and ask all of you to vote on your favorite. No prizes, just the opportunity to let potentially millions of readers see your work.

Meantime, thanks to reader Bob Counts for the thoughtful reply below to last Saturday's featured newsletter review on converting an aging PC to Linux.

"Just read your article on "upgrading" an old PC to Linux. I am not a Linux fanatic, nor do I want to be. I use what works, with the limited budget I have available, ergo, I use Linux a lot. I read where Ubuntu didn't do it for you. As you wrote, there were other possibilities, but I have a question that didn't get reported. Did you try the Linux Live versions?

Ubuntu has such a version, so do Mandriva and Suse, to name a few. Sometimes running the live version will bring out incompatibilities that just a plain install would crash on, and the reason would be hiding behind a graphic screen.

Nevertheless, my hat is off to you for getting Debian installed. It has a reputation for not being the easiest distro to install. I enjoyed your article. If more people would try Linux, things could be easier all the way around."

Keep up the good work.

Bob Counts

Thanks, Bob, and have a great weekend.

2. Today's Top Story: Unifying Adobe and Macromedia Products

3. Last Week's Highlighted Coverage

Online Gambling Gone Wild: U.S. Crackdown Sparks Offshore Boom
Far from slowing its growth, a crackdown on online gambling has sent many sites offshore, and others underground. But it's a good bet that Internet poker will remain a booming industry.

Plus: Online Poker Table Images

T.J. Maxx Parent Company Data Theft Is The Worst Ever
The intrusion hands the retailer the dubious honor of surpassing the 40 million stolen customer record mark, something that only CardSystems had been able to achieve.

Toyota Plans Own System For In-Car Software
The move by Japan's top automaker is aimed at boosting efficiency and keeping an edge over competitors in key areas such as safety as automobiles become increasingly computerized and increased complexity drives up software development costs.

Citizendium Fancies Itself Wikipedia With Manners
With just over 1,000 articles, Citizendium isn't yet enormous, particularly in comparison with Wikipedia's 1.7 million articles.
