Red Hat wastes time on social networking
You're not the only one whiling away the hours on the likes of MySpace when you should be working. It turns out that Red Hat, the Linux distributor, has been frittering away valuable time developing a new social-networking website called Mugshot, which launched Wednesday. Red Hat has released the service's code as open source to make it easier for developers to include photo- and video-sharing features in other software applications, but that's the only tenuous connection to the Linux vendor's day job. Ars Technica comes down hard on Red Hat for putting its engineers' efforts into this questionable side project when there are serious flaws that need fixing in Linux's built-in desktop and email software.
