    Re: BIOS will be dead in three years

    There was a technical need, because it was a limitation of the 16 bit BIOS that it could only address 2.2 terabytes.

    In any case, the BIOS was long overdue for a recall - it was already a hacked...

    Re: Operating systems used in movies

    Tron: Legacy was pretty darn accurate with their Linux system that Sam Flynn uses to get into the grid. Only fail was running "#bin/history". It's just history. But they got simple ones such as...

    Re: New Computer, need advise

    That's a "Pentium". The reason you perhaps don't see a difference between the core2Duo and core i-series is because you don't really stress your system anyways? Other reasons could be that you had a...

  6. Re: Your next hardware upgrade, when will it happen? (tentatively...)

    Heavy IDE's benefit more from added CPU power: Linux is light on the RAM so I doubt adding more really makes much of a difference, unless you do lots of rendering/media applications. Then that will...

    The Das may be a fine piece of engineering, but it still looks up to the grandaddy of them all:

  8. Re: Do you raise your keyboard flaps for typing?

    I don't know about ergonomics, but it puts the keys at the intended typing angle. Keyboards always seem sturdier too when they have the flaps down. I always have the flaps down. It messes me up...

    Re: High School Computer Class Project?

    Show them just how much Linux is used in our daily lives - Stock exchanges, webservers, most of the internet, phones (ex. Anyone here have a Droid?),and so on. Also prove just how much more secure...
  10. Re: Your next hardware upgrade, when will it happen? (tentatively...)

    Bulldozer =/= APU. That's the Fusion processors you are confusing them with. Apparently they are getting great reviews. Bulldozer processors do not have embedded graphics like the Fusions do, and you...
  11. Re: Your next hardware upgrade, when will it happen? (tentatively...)

    Source...? So far as most of the public knows, Bulldozer is still dual channel for the Zambezi (the desktop bulldozer proc codename) CPU's. Some of the recent pictures seen at CeBit 2011 of the new...

    Re: Iron man JARVIS meet jaNET

    It's lack of money that stops me from buying one as well. The kinect is, however, apparently much cheaper than entry-level all-in-one light sensors/ir_sensors/microphones (which is what the kinect...

    Re: Iron man JARVIS meet jaNET

    Have you heard about the openkinect project and the stuff they are developing over there? Some hand-gesture stuff/movement recognition would be a neat addition to this project. Just an idea.

    It can be a written report, or a "show the class" type thing. Like I said, I am in (Canadian) grade 11 math, or 16-17 years of age. My mathematical knowledge does not extend much beyond that....

    It does not seem to be in the repositories, I have forgotten how to search for packages via commandline (due to me using arch all the time now), but a quick Google seach should tell you how.
