Singapore's prime minister releases source code for his hand-coded Sudoku-solver
Singaporean prime minister Lee Hsien Loong has decided to reveal the source code of the Sudoku-solving app he personally coded.
The PM revealed he likes to program in his spare time last month and mentioned the Sudoku-solver. He's since taken to Facebook to announce the source code dump.
“The program is pretty basic,' the PM writes, “it runs at the command prompt, in a DOS window. Type in the data line by line (e.g. 1-3-8---6), then the solver will print out the solution (or all the solutions if there are several), the number of steps the program took searching for the solution, plus some search statistics.”
OpenStack Daddy Chris C Kemp says it's like Linux in 1996
Chris C Kemp, the former NASA CIO credited with originating OpenStack, has predicted stacks-in-a-box that make the cloud platform more accessible and easier to use aren't far off.
Speaking at CeBIT Australia, Kemp responded to a Register question about OpenStack usability by saying “in 1996 Linux was no fun either, but it provided a lot of value.” That value, and the fact the platform was open, led to innovation and the more polished Linuxes available and widely-used today.
Kemp reckons that cycle will repeat for OpenStack.
An introduction to Linux from Opensource.com
What is Linux? For many this seems like a question with an obvious answer, but the truth is there are a large number of people who would shrug their shoulders. Many have never heard of Linux (gasp!) or aren't confident in their answer.
Here at Opensource.com, we want to help answer that question in a manner that allows others pass it around and share it with the world. So, we created a new resource page which gently introduces Linux, the world's most popular open source operating system.
