This is also the first release since being acquired by Apple.
manilastandardtoday: TWO weeks ago, I wrote about portable applications that you can carry in your pocket. Wouldn’t it be simpler if you could run the operating system right off a flash drive and bring the programs and data you need on the same stick?

linux-blog.org: Many people want to know how to get programs to startup immediately upon login. Now there are two ways to do this...kind of.
tgdaily.com: In this article we'll go through the entire process of setting up a virtual machine. You'll learn what software is required, what hardware should be used and, as a companion to the three-part article, why it is desirable to do so.
As I had no other choice but to come back on time to I don't know exactly what state things are at work I had to use a bus to come back to Ankara from Bodrum. At the last rest stop in Afyon I saw a bus number plate that tickled my fancy so much I had to take a photo of it to share with you.
