This week in open source, Microsoft apologized for its Sandcastle project, an OpenOffice vulnerability came to light, and the new iPhone is proving not much friendlier to open source developers.
This week, in case you missed it, Microsoft apologized to the Open Source Initiative over its Sandcastle project and Jack Wallen wrote about Linux server security for the 10 Things blog. I don't know if you were following the Hans Reiser drama, but it looks like he's now trying to cut a deal to serve less time for killing his wife, by leading police to the body. Yikes! Plus, it looks like iPhone is still treating open source developers like the black sheep of the tech family.TechRepublic
