I wonder how many other businesses are experiencing the same problem. I'm keen to start a conversation about how others fair when selling FOSS solutions and whether its time to get together again and think again about a re-branding that will have my prospective customers asking, "OK tell us more" rather than "open sounds insecure". To that end I would like to nominate a brand new name that I have seen used in FOSS communities as a suitable candidate... Community Software.
Reddit: Linux program like system monitor but will prompt you when one program takes too much cpu / memory
Is there a linux program behaving like a system monitor that will prompt me when one program takes too much cpu or memory (preset limits, i.e. more than 50% cpu, more than 60% memory usage) then prompt me to either Abort or Continue... Because whenever my linux feels a little slow, i try to find the culprit using Kde system monitor, then kill it from there... thank yousubmitted by forgotpasswordhere

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass.
The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
