M$ âInventsâ Chroot

| Sorry, guys, weâve had that for years. 
| Another marketing guys ploy got in the way 
| of migration to â7â so they took away the 
| requirement to use virtualization. .
| Wake up! M$ is jerking your change. Chroot 
| has been around in the âNIX world since 
| 1982. They tried to get you to buy new 
| hardware to run â7â and XP by 
| virtualization but you realized your 
| present hardware was adequate. Donât 
| migrate to â7â, just because M$ wants more 
| money. 


Mac OS X 10.6.2 vs. Ubuntu 10.04 Performance

,----[ Quote ]
| For this testing of the latest Snow Leopard 
| and Lucid Lynx operating systems we used 
| one of our newer Apple Mac Mini systems 
| that had an Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 clocked 
| at 2.00GHz, an Apple Mac-F22C86C8 
| motherboard with NVIDIA MCP79 Chipset, 1GB 
| of DDR3-1067MHz system memory, a120GB 
| Fujitsu MHZ2120B SATA HDD, and NVIDIA 
| GeForce 9400 graphics. Mac OS X 10.6.2 uses 
| the 10.2.0 kernel, X.Org Server 1.4.2-
| apple45, GCC 4.2.1, and a Journaled HFS+ 
| file-system. With Ubuntu 10.04 LTS not 
| being officially released for a few weeks 
| we used a daily snapshot from 2010-03-28 
| with the Linux 2.6.32-17-generic 64-bit 
| kernel, GNOME 2.29.92, X.Org Server 1.7.6, 
| NVIDIA 195.36.15 graphics driver with 
| OpenGL 3.2.0, GCC 4.4.3, and an EXT4 file-
| system. Both the Mac OS X and Linux 
| operating systems were left with their 
| defaults.

Revive your old Mac G3, G4, or G5 with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Do you have an old Mac G3 or G4 lying around doing nothing? Did you know that
| old dinosaur could make a great server or desktop with the help of everyoneâs
| favorite open source operating system Linux?  Most people donât realize there
| are Linux ports for PPC. There are, and they will make that old machine seem
| like itâs younger and snappier than it ever did.
