France Telecom Switches to Communicator

Great news! I'm not surprised they did this, and I would expect more companies (especially European companies) to make a similar move. IE5 is incredibly insecure; I can't imagine *any* company concerned with security wanting to standardize on it.

No URL for this news yet - let us know if you come across an article concerning the switch, and we'll post it here.

#5 Ok, fine, yes....

I've heard these three groups of "hackers" described as White Hat (the ones that break security so that it can be improved in the future), Black Hat (the ones who break security so that they can do evil things with our files), and Munchkins (the ones who break security because it's fun).

I think there were more classifications in whatever source I got these from, but I can't remember where that was. I'm fairly sure that it wasn't just an elaborate joke on Red Hat Linux...
