Julia Gillard, question from an American

I've made some Aussie friends, and as a result, gotten more interested in Aussie politics. Particularly Julia Gillard.

Was she forced out mainly because of sexism and misogyny ? To my American eyes, she seems like a pretty decent human being.

Thanks for tolerating my sincere question.

Be happy for us, northerners, Canadians, Aussies, Brits, etc ! Yea yea, I know 1) fall officially started weeks ago and 2) many in Florida hate cold weather. I like a touch of cold, before we go back to endless summer.

UPDATE 1-Microsoft names next operating system 'Windows 10'

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/09/30/microsoft-windows-idUSL2N0RV1RF20140930

Huh ?


(Reuters) - Microsoft Corp announced its 'Windows 10' operating system on Tuesday, skipping a number, to replace the largely unpopular Windows 8 from two years ago.

The next version of Microsoft's flagship product, which still runs the vast majority of personal computers, is aimed at recapturing the lucrative business market, which generally ignored the new-look Windows 8.

Windows 10 will be "our greatest enterprise platform ever," said Terry Myerson, Microsoft's head of operating systems, at an event in San Francisco.

He said the new Windows, long known by the project name 'Threshold' internally, represented a new type of system for the company. The name represented that leap, he said.

Linux, Mac OS X, Security Matters

A serious security issue with the Bash shell a major component of both most UNIX-like operating systems has been discovered, with significant implications for computer security worldwide.

The issue is present in all versions of the Bash scripting language up to version 4.3, which effects a majority of Linux machines, and the entirety of computers running OS X. and can see an attacker exploiting this issue to launch their own code.

Curious about how it works and how to protect yourself? Read on for more information.

What Is Bash?

Bash (standing for Bourne Again Shell) is the default command line interpreter used on most Linux and BSD distributions, in addition to OS X. It is used as a method of launching programs, using system utilities and interacting with the underlying operating system by launching commands.
