    One thing I've learned from Windows 7 that might be relevant here is that it doesn't like being booted from GRUB. GRUB will boot it fine, but I've had eg. the installation of SP1 fail because Windows...

    I'd buy one if I had a need for a small ARM notebook, they look like a good use of the $250 price tag. From what I've read you won't be locked into the operating system:...

    Ironically the "Spherical Cow" is a jab at the notion that real life is nothing like how you might model it for eg. release management purposes :p

    So couldn't an attacker log on, grab K(t) from wherever it's currently stored, be evil for several hours, then go back and re-write the log verbatim until the start of K(t), then (with knowledge of...

    No, you need 2 display cards (eg. a built-in one on the motherboard and a discrete PCI-E graphics card or a laptop with something like an Optimus setup with 2 GPUs)

    What I want to know is if it's...

    Ok, so Mozilla want to focus on Firefox and a Firefox OS. What would be cool is if they wrote a JavaScript/HTML5 email client to compete with the Gmail interface. They don't have to host it, just...

    GOG is a distributor with ties into publishing, but they're not developers, so talking about winelib isn't really their territory. The best thing they can do for Linux is supporting it with their...
