| This is how the first version of ABC 
| GNU/Linux arose, which was in trial phase 
| by April 2009. It involves a free 
| software-based distribution (Ubuntu), is 
| live as well as installable, and is 
| capable of automatically configuring a 
| cluster of up to 254 computers. Castanos 
| said, â100 PCs are purchased and my DVD is 
| inserted into one of these and booted, 
| either from the DVD or installed in the 
| hard disk itself. This computer and the 
| rest of the machines are connected 
| together by a switch (a device that acts 
| like a router). When the rest of the 
| machines are booted, using a BIOS (basic 
| in/out system) specifying which device is 
| to be booted, they are told what to do by 
| means of the network card. All are booted 
| from the DVD itself -- or the hard disk if 
| installed -- registered, and connections 
| are created between them.â


Arch Linux 2010.05 arrives

,----[ Quote ]
| The Arch Linux developers have announced 
| the release of the project's official 
| 2010.05 installation images. Arch Linux is 
| a simple and lightweight Linux 
| distribution for i686 and x86-64 platforms 
| aimed at Linux users who want to create 
| "their own ideal environment" and install 
| only what they need.


Zippy, cloud-based Linux distro off to fast start

,----[ Quote ]
| A new fast-booting, cloud-oriented, 
| "Peppermint OS" Ubuntu variant has been 
| downloaded 25,000 times in its first week. 
| Meanwhile, the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
| clone CentOS has been released in version 
| 5.5, adding features such as improved KVM 
| virtualization and expanded WiFi support, 
| and pioneering Linux distro-maker Mandriva 
| is up for sale.



Arch Linux + KDE 4.4.2

,----[ Quote ]
| After about an hour or so of automated
| downloading and installing in pacman, I was
| rewarded with a beautiful state-of-the-art
| desktop that nearly puts Windows 7 to
| shame. Its file management and multimedia
| applications have all the function and
| polish of Mac OS X, and its desktop widgets
| are in a class all their own. From a side-
| scrolling menu, you can select widgets to
| view folder contents, CPU load, network
| connections, battery status, and more.
| Additional widgets can be downloaded by
| clicking a button from the widget browser.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
