1. Ubuntu 11.04 beta testers divided over Unity. Which camp do you fall under?

2. Ron Miller’s convinced that a 10,000 core computer proves cloud scalability. Are you?

3. Updates are great, but Wendy Schuchart wants to know what it means for the older residents of your computer and asks, Are the Mozilla Firefox 4 and IE9 releases wreaking havoc on your old apps?

4. Not able to make it to the Linux developer community meet-up in San Francisco? No worries, Leah Rosin has the top 5 takeaways from the 2011 Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit.

5. Shamus McGillicuddy was right on several accounts in his initial reaction to a leaked Cisco memo a week ago: Cisco’s troubles – start talking to more network engineers.

6. IT gets all mixed up in politics, and Sharon Fisher teaches us when we shouldn’t destroy hard drives by asking Mike Huckabee.

7. Looking for a chuckle? Mrdenny’s to the rescue with a SQL Server job opportunity and a job description that must be shared.

8. If you’ve been upset by VMware’s treatment of its certifications, Beth Pariseau has VMware’s response to VCDX certification concerns.

9. Save the drama for your…IT company? Barbara Darrow’s afraid so: HP sues Adrian Jones as the war with Oracle rages on.

10. Barbara Darrow’s precursor to the chaos above: Adrian Jones surfaces at Oracle.

    I'm bothered a little that [A href=""]Stuxnet at[/A] wasn't listed (nor was it listed a week ago). It couldn't be much shorter. The subject can't get much more interesting for a tech site. And I'm not sure the possible implications for the next decade could be much scarier for tech readers and for general life. Tom

    Hi Tom, These lists are compiled by the most-viewed blog post pages across the site rather than the editors' opinions. Thanks for sharing an important post that readers should see. Best, Melanie

    [I]These lists are compiled by the most-viewed blog post pages across the site...[/I] I understood that; and that's why it bothered me. The subject was important enough that every one of us ought to have it in mind, yet members didn't go there as often as at least ten other blog posts. When that level of technology is shown both to exist and to have been used live, and not to mention that it is "generic" in its structure, almost anything and everything connected to any network (even isolated segments) become at risk. And theoretically, it's our job to see that it doesn't happen. Tom
