Yikes! New York has decided that a worker employed by a company in NY State can be taxed on 100% of their income in the state. What?! So my question is does the worker now get double-dipped having to pay income taxes in both his state of residence and NY? Be interested to see if the US Supreme Court takes an interest in this one. My suspicion is that it will definitely dampen employer enthusiasm for telecommuting.Wed, 16 Mar 2005
The new Knoppix 3.8 has added an interesting feature by incorporating UnionFS into the filesystem. What does this mean? Well it means I can modify a file in /etc without a problem. The underlying unionfs structure writes the mod to /ramdisk and the change is transparent.
In fact, any change can be made. Software can be added. And further, those changes can be incorporated with Knoppix's existing persistent home dir feature. So every time you boot it, it picks up your mods. Knoppix already has so many uses and so much functionality. And it keeps getting better.
First read about it on oreillynet.
