Is this for real?

When I was in high school, during IT classes we worked with DOS, WordPerfect for DOS and BASIC. When my sister showed me her school textbook ‘Information technologies for gymnasium’, I was expecting tons of Windows screenshots. But, I was surprised.

Wow! Not only there are Ubuntu screenshots and big Wilber, no… The textbook explains what is Open Source, what are proprietary operating systems. You can even find words like FreeBSD, NetBSD, EXT2, EXT3, UFS Smile They equally provide space for Microsoft Windows Vista, XP and Ubuntu Linux (no MacOSX). Granted, in the office section, they explain how to work with MS Office tools, but they acknowledge existence of OpenOffice.org.

For real?

It's good to see that... Too bad my "gymnasium" days are over Sad

  • Powerful Command-line File Transfer Programs
    The desktop environment with its bundle of programs sharing a common graphical user interface (GUI) remains a firm favorite with users. Not surprising really given that a good desktop environment makes computing fun and simple. The graphical desktop environment has become so ingrained in almost everyone's computer activities that it might seem the command line will wither away. Yet, there is still an important role to play for the humble command-line interface (CLI).

New Google Nexus Leak Confirms 192-Core, 64-bit Apple Rival

Last September Apple AAPL +0.16% caused a stir when it announced iOS 7 and the accompanying iPhone 5S would support 64-bit operation. The move to this much faster architecture gave it the jump on 32-bit rivals Android and Windows Phone and brought Apple’s products in-line with desktop and laptop-class computing. But now Android has caught up and may well go speeding past. No less than three devices lead the charge: a teaser, a leak and an official announcement. Interestingly all come from HTC and the one which will attain by far the most headlines is the new Google ‘Nexus 9’ tablet – also dubbed the ‘Nexus X’ – which will do battle head-on with the iPad mini .
