HBO's A Song of Ice and Fire (2010-2014)

HBO now doing something very cool such as bringing the best fantasy novel series to television. Peter Jackson must've messed up. These are done in seasons with the first season "Game of Thrones" (book 1). Then a new book comes out in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. The books won Locus, Nebula and Hugo awards. The Song of Ice and Fire storyline must be pretty liberal for HBO to turn it into five miniseries.

Looking forward to it.

Why Solaris went open source: to not get compensated over by cheaper RedHat's ALC_FLR.3 !

Researching OpenSolaris 2010, a free System V UNIX, I come across a website that explains that in order to compete against Red Hat Linux in Government security requirements, they had to make the price point equal Red Hat's with only the customer service charges. So Red Hat was the first and one of three Linuxs to get EAL4 Augmented with ALC_FLR.3 including RedHat Linux, Oracle Linux, Suse Linux which is why the US Government is the largest buyer of Red Hat Linux. It only took OpenSolaris a year to be created after Red Hat accomplished this. The question is which one would you pick if customer service and patches were comparable with the latest Red Hat Enterprise Desktop? OpenSolaris has ZFS. I'm using OpenSuse BTW! Northrop Grumman likes Suse Linux too.

Central Committee comes from 'Comrade File Cabinet'?

In 1922, Joseph Stalin was General Secretary of the USSR. Joseph created departments of the Central Committee and other organs at lower levels that were responsible for the registration and appointment of party officials. That's the only Bolshevik thing the Republican Party and Democratic Party should do.
