[News] More Free Software for Science: RKWard (for R), 3D Landscape Generators

Hash: SHA1

RKWard - Advanced Free Statistical Data Analysis Tool

,----[ Quote ]
| RKWard is a graphical user interface to R, with the objective to provide a 
| user friendly statistical analysis tool with advanced graphics capabilities 
| for documentation and publications. Through RKWard the user has access to all 
| of R's functions. When starting up the software lists recent projects and 
| data.    


Open Source 3D Landscape Generators

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently noticed two free 3D landscape generators and thought to myself: "I 
| bet there are dozens of never-finish terrain generators for games and vr 
| apps!" I was wrong. In this article, I will introduce the handful of floss 
| scenery generators and editors that I was able to find.    


Scientists vote for GNU/Linux.


Shazam! Oak Ridge Supercomputer Now World's Fastest For Open Science

,----[ Quote ]
| Each node runs Cray's version of the SuSE Linux operating system, and Cray
| has tuned the Linux kernel so that it removes unnecessary services from the
| compute nodes. This means that the operating system minimizes interruptions
| to the application codes running on the system. The SuSE Linux operating
| system on the nodes combines with the system services, networking software,
| communications, I/O and mathematical libraries, as well as compilers,
| debuggers and performance tools to form the Cray Linux Environment.



Linux still super in Top500

,----[ Quote ]
| In the June 2008 Top500 list, Linux still lives large with a role in 92% of
| systems (It is the only OS for 85.4%, but when considering all distributions
| (SUSE, Red Hat, CentOS, and general ‘Linux,’ as well as mixed uses that
| include Linux, I figure the share is more like the 92%).


World's biggest computing grid launched

,----[ Quote ]
| The world’s largest computing grid is ready to tackle mankind’s biggest data
| challenge from the earth’s most powerful accelerator. Today, three weeks
| after the first particle beams were injected into the Large Hadron Collider
| (LHC), the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid combines the power of more than 140
| computer centers from 33 countries to analyze and manage more than 15 million
| gigabytes of LHC data every year.

Computer viruses in space!!

| Maybe they should run Mac or Linux.  Then they would have nothing to worry
| about at all, right?


NASA Uses Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| He and I walked back over behind the guy to look. I pointed out the little
| bit of the heron you could see at the bottom of the screen, and he said "yep,
| it's Hardy." Then he added, "look what else he's running." "What?" "Compiz.
| You can see the shadows on the panels."


Fedora on the Final Frontier

,----[ Quote ]
| There has been a long standing rumor regarding NASA running Fedora which all
| of us in the Fedora community have been always intrigued by. Is it true? What
| are they doing with it there? Why don't they run RHEL. Fortunately enough, a
| couple of weeks ago, I got to experience NASA behind the scenes, first hand,
| and hang out with the coolest members of the Fedora community, and find out
| the answer to these questions and lots more.


Large Hadron Collider - powered by Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| The most powerful physics project in the history of the known universe - The
| $10 Billion Large Hadron Collider (LHC)- shot its first light speed beam this
| morning around its 27 km circuit. Beyond the 20 years it took to build and
| half of all the world's astrophysicists, it also takes another key ingredient
| to make LHC work -- Linux.


VMware Fusion Helps CERN Physicists Analyze Data From Coolest Place on Earth

,----[ Quote ]
| VMware, Inc., (NYSE:VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from
| the desktop to the datacenter, today announced physicists at CERN, the
| European Organization for Nuclear Research and the world's leading laboratory
| for particle physics, use VMware Fusion to share Linux-based computer code
| via VMware virtual machines running on Apple hardware.


Scientific Linux 5.2 Live CD Works in Persistent Mode

,----[ Quote ]
| Compared with the previous version, Scientific Linux 5.2 Live CD/DVD works in
| persistent mode, which means that it will store/restore your settings if you
| run it from an USB flash drive. Also, this new feature will allow you to
| carry the USB stick with you, and boot from it whenever you need a stable and
| reliable operating system.
