Some updates from the August 2002 issue of DeveloperIQ www.developeriq.com

	* LINUXmag section has a special article on how to
	  compile your own Linux kernel, by Philip de Groot.Get
	  better hardware support by compiling your kernel... or
	  move to a more faster and stable kernel.

	* On the CD: Corel Photo-Paint 9 for Linux.

	* Editorial: Microsoft is learning a few tricks from the
	  Open Source space (by Ramdas S ramdas@developeriq.com)
	  "You would not get the source code of any Microsoft products
	  at least as of now! The strategy is to offer free products
	  in space where the competition from Open Source is strong
	  to match in offerings. The new ASP.Net Web Matrix, which
	  supports ASP programming, is now freely available.And 
	  Microsoft is backing it up with support, unlike the
	  Open Source Community." (Whatever this is supposed to mean!!!FN)

	* Ramdas says: "At the point of writing, we were trying to
	  figure whether we could connect it to MySQL on Windows
	  instead of the more expensive MS SQL server..." (So, the
	  freedom of affordability is important too ;-)
