  Erik the Red Summary
The second crime Erik was held accountable for occurred when Erik insisted upon revenge for the deaths of his slaves who had "accidentally started a landslide" on Valthjof's farm.
Then on the timeline comes Erik who traveled around the southern tip of the island, soon to be called Cape Farewell, and eventually reached a part of the coast that for the most part was devoid of any ice and subsequently had conditions similar to those of Norway that promised growth and prosperity.
Erik himself remained a pagan, unlike his son Leif and wife, who built the first Christian church in the Americas on their farm (though despite speculation, it is unlikely that Leif was the first to bring Christianity to Greenland).

Then on the timeline comes Erik, who traveled around the southern tip of the island (later known as Cape Farewell) and sailed up the western coast.
Erik purposely gave the land a more appealing name than "Iceland" in order to lure potential settlers.
After spending the winter in Iceland, Erik returned to Greenland in 985 with a large number of colonists and established two colonies on its southwest coast: the "Eastern Settlement" or Eystribyggð, in modern-day Julianhåb, and the "Western Settlement" or Vestribyggð, close to present-day Godthåb.

Red Hat Desktop is targeted at Microsoft customers currently running Windows 98, NT, and 2000 who are looking at the end of support for their platforms.
In the span of a week, Sun called Red Hat “proprietary,” and Microsoft said Linux is “not open source.” I am certain that the Linux camp — and Red Hat in particular — appreciates all of the free publicity.
Regardless of how silly it is to call Red Hat proprietary and to say that Linux is not open source, Linux is now driving the technology debate agenda.

 Salon.com News | The Red Wings in 5
The Red Wings are coming off a Game 7 thrashing of the Avalanche in the semifinals, a 7-0 embarrassment that was the dud anticlimax -- for those of us who don't live in Detroit -- of a classic series.
But there isn't, and now the Red Wings find themselves in the same position as the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals: As champions of the vastly superior Western Conference, they're prohibitive favorites over the Eastern champs, who, in the West, would be just another team, in this case not even a playoff team.
Anyway, the BBC Line, center Rod Brind'Amour and wings Bates Battaglia and Erik Cole, is complemented by team captain Ron Francis, a 21-year veteran, leading goal scorer Jeff O'Neill and three solid tandems of defensemen.
