>I have a concept for a new computer lab. Similar to LTSP except with no server. The clients are the server.
Using Linux Virtual Server you make the entire lab 1 virtual server. Then you install X, magically*.
Network is faster than accessing the hard drive. So why not have 2 computers store the memory requirement for some app and then send it to the computer that needs it. P2P computing. Less swapping or redefined swapping.
Magically* might be 1 crazy many input / many output X driver or run X “twice”. Once on the virtual server and once on the clients.
Thank you for reading another one of my crazy ideas.
>I consider the OpenOffice.org program bloated, especially on startup time, memory usage, and code size.
Easter Eggs in OpenOffice.org [http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Easter_Eggs]
- Space Invaders I personally think Space invaders has no place in a spreadsheet program.
- Frogger I couldn’t get it to work, maybe already removed?
- Tic-Tac-Toe It can stay It uses the spreadsheet
- Space Invaders – Alt-F2 then “gegls from outer space”
- Minesweeper – actually I suppose its not an easter egg because it’s clearly labeled in the menus, it still makes me a little uneasy though
How many Space Invaders do we need? Perhaps Space Invaders should be included officially in gnome-games and not hidden in Gnome and OpenOffice.org.
What’s your perspective on easter eggs?
>Today I wiped my test box and put openSUSE 10.3 to the test
My initial impressions are:
- openSUSE asks a lot of questions on the install (bad)
- openSUSE has a GUI configuration tools for a lot of things, by default (good)
- openSUSE confuses me with their software repositories. Too many different GUIs
The Desktop Rocks
- Oh. and NONE by default.
- And it seems to be very slow
- Earlier versions I just gave up on getting it to work
- Except for the fact that when clicking on “Computer” and bringing up the coolest part, you can’t take a screenshot
- Speed (except package management)
- Boots faster than my main machine
“Feels” very responsive over all
Unlike reports I’ve heard Searching is fast and doesn’t seem to slow the computer down
- This might be my fault on said machine
- Definite speed improvement since last SUSE
Of course I think I’m just going to customize Ubuntu a bit to get most of the cool results I saw. Yast is of course difficult to replicate.
>Bye GnuJersey, It’s been fun. Thank you to David Harding for putting up (with) my blog and maintaining the site. I always found gnujersey.org so much more catchy than nj.ubuntu-us.org.
I am hoping GnuJersey will reemerge one day, it’s too catch a name to go into oblivion (as something other than a news source).
Hello http://nj.ubuntu-us.org/planet/ Although I’ve been aggregated on there for a while, I find it annoying to read the same blog posts 2+ times.
>Such a badly defined thing. It’s defined as when Linux wins.
I will make this much of a prediction though:
Linux will overtake Windows 98 on this *site by the end of this year. That might not sound that amazing so I’ll make it better. Every year after this one, Linux will displace another OS (until it can’t displace any more).
