An interesting article on Reason (as always) asking why is polygamy illegal? True, it's kind of an outmoded law, but since it's a religious belief, should you allow people who believe in human sacrifice to do that to? Obviously not, but polygamy is just a relationship between consenting adults (a-la gay marriage for instance) which is okay, IMHO.
Also, there's a story on IDG (which I found via the excellent, all-knowing MoreOver) about Microsoft's 64-bit Windows and why it isn't likely to make much of a dent in the UNIX domination of high-end servers:
- It's Windows! It's the first version! It'll be buggy as shit!
- Itanium is released next week. Dell starts shipping Itanium systems in 3 months' time. How good is Microsoft at sticking to deadlines?
- High-end server == Valuable data == Security essential != Windows.
