Need for Speed SHIFT - coming soon

The EA Games announces 3 new games from the Need for Speed series: Need For Speed Shift, Need For Speed Nitro and Need For Speed World Online. Only NFS and NFS Online World Shift will be available on PC and NFS Nitro will be available on Nintendo Wii console and Nintendo DS.
Need for Speed World Online will be a "Free Game" in which you can only play with friends and you can choose what car you want without having to carry out tasks or win races.
Need for Speed Shift is based on the idea of the simulator, providing a drop of realism of this game, having the opportunity to see inside the car. Graphic will be enhanced, and the vehicle control will be drastically revised and closer to reality.
Electronic Arts has sent a press release that officially confirms the three new Need For Speed titles and announces the approximate release date. Thus, Need For Speed Nitro and SHIFT will be available this autumn, while Need For Speed World Online will be released on the Asian market this year during the summer and in the U.S. market during the winter.
I am amazed by the EA Games speed when it comes to new names in the NFS series. It was like yesterday when Undercover was released and now they are announcing not one, but 3 games. Hardly wait to play them.

Save the software developers ! Do not kill the web !

Therefore, please use a browser based on open standards!
Somewhere around the beginning of the year, I found two interesting sites. I am talking about Kill Bill's browser and Explorer Destroyer. Today they are not existing anymore.

It seems that behind the site were the same person. Perhaps some of you are aware of.

A banal example: Google pays $ 1 for each user click on an AdSense banner via Firefox, download and install Firefox for the first time on the computer.
Another campaign, more fresh, less aggressive is SaveTheDevelopers. I felt good when I saw the list of sponsors and are two sites in Romania. Probably are more, many have found it in 30 seconds what it took to take a look over those logos.

Personally I can not accept anymore to build a site and to be forced to make all kind of compromises in order to achieve a decent show on IE6 and other browsers. IE 6 digest the most difficult and CSS code and simply makes life awful for people. You say that a real web designer will know what to do. Okay, but I must admit that the web designer is trying hard to do things to look good in any browser.

Edge Software & Ubuntu

Edge Software has managed to move a client on Linux completely. The used distribution is Ubuntu. Day to day activity of the company was last online on Linux servers, with the possibility of moving on client's network upon his request. The transition was made baed on some tests made in advance (1 year ago installing a laptop with Ubuntu). Now you can see immediate benefits: no viruses, no trojans already and the result was an increased confidence in computers.

Morale is good and joy of the start up is big. Time will tell if our vision was good.

PS: Edge use Ubuntu Software for production activity...
