Peak Oil to help FOSS

In my studies this week I have read many (more than usual) articles on peak oil. One article I just read made me think about how the oil crisis might affect FOSS and the software market in general. Here's how I think oil is going to play out, soon after the midterm elections the price of oil will start back toward $65-$70 and it will be blamed on more people traveling for thanksgiving. In December (despite the lower demand of winter) the price will head toward $70-$75 and be blamed on holiday travel once again. This will set the stage for a good holiday season for FOSS since shoppers will want to save money on electronic devices and you can't get much cheaper than free.

Mepis Linux 6.0-1 live DVD

I've been a Mepis linux fan for a few years now and even after I try the lastest distro from distrowatch I go back to Mepis. I found the Mepis live dvd to be the best yet, however I still like freespire for the ease of CNR. I will wait for CNR to be open sourced so I can use it with mepis and/or any other distro I'm using at the time.

Yahoo and/or Google

Google is catching up with Yahoo when it comes to content but the layout is behind by a pixel or two. Google search, maps and video are better than yahoo but the layout lacking. Yahoo just looks better, what is your favorite finance.yahoo.com or finance.google.com? Yahoo has also allowed those of us with web pages to copy code for qoutes like google video does. Check out the embedded quotes from yahoo, and the embedded video from google on computersfor.us my site.

Myspace issues

I'm having trouble with myspace, I keep getting an error when I click on my profile to try and update it. My blog on myspace seems to update, but this blogger.com is a lot faster and they use LINUX servers instead of windows. Looks like myspace will lose eyeballs if they don't upgrade there servers to LINUX and APACHE. Has anyone else had slowdowns and errors on myspace?
