ARM announces a development studio

,----[ Quote ]
| UK CHIP DESIGNER ARM has announced the Keil 
| Development Studio 5 (DS-5) Application 
| Edition for ARM Linux-based systems.
| ARM claims the DS-5 Application Edition was 
| developed as a tool suite designed to 
| simplify developing Linux and Android native 
| applications for ARM processor-based systems. 
| It was built to reduce the learning curve and 
| shorten the coding and testing cycle.



The New UI for ARM Based Ubuntu Devices

,----[ Quote ]
| ARM based platforms traditionally have a problem
| with graphics drivers and free software.
| Encumbered by licensing issues, many platforms
| only ship with 2D based drivers whilst the 3D
| driver-enabled offerings only frequent the
| poshest of circles such as Nokia's N900. There
| are exceptions, but its a painful reality at the
| moment.
| Vendors are trying to work around it, especially
| as there is the expectation of a ramp-up in the
| availability of ARM based hardware. Super long-
| life netbooks, low powered touch based computers,
| and even a flurry of smaller embedded devices are
| forecast to hit the market this year, many of
| which will be based on the Linux operating
| system. Ubuntu would be a great match for this.



programmers at work

,----[ Quote ]
|     Bricklin sent waves of laughter through
|     the auditorium by reading a passage from
|     Lammers' interview with Bill Gates in
|     which the young Microsoft founder
|     explained that his work on different
|     versions of Microsoft's BASIC compiler
|     was shaped by looking at how other
|     programmers had gone about the same task.
|     Gates went on to say that young
|     programmers don't need computer science
|     degrees: "The best way to prepare is to
|     write programs, and to study great
|     programs that other people have written.
|     In my case, I went to the garbage cans at
|     the Computer Science Center and I fished
|     out listings of their operating systems."
|     Bricklin finished reading Gates' words
|     and announced, with an impish smile,
|     "This is where Gates and [Richard]
|     Stallman agree!"
