ZDNet used to be good some time back, but gradually they have aimed their content
more and more at the "suits" that this guy describes in his article. In other words they
reduced the technical bias and increased the marketing hype and faffy talk. I finally
gave up and signed off their various mailing lists (which *used* to be usefull for keeping
up to date) when they published some headline article about scary viruses. It may as
well have been written by one of the anti-virus vendors. It was the type of thing which
gets management-types to come rushing into the department demanding to know
exactly what anti-virus precautions the company takes.
Still, their magazines are good, and they do have some usefull associate sites.
