My PC [PIII,500MHz],Bellow are the Processes that are currently running,
-APACHE [HTTP server,at background]…Mysql [Database server at background]
-XawTV [Running top of all the windows in a small window]…Mozilla [With 13 tabs]
-2 Mozilla composer windows[for html editing]…Konqueror [1 window under SU mode]
-Two konqueror windows [Normal user mode as file manager]…Konsole [2 tabs..Terminal]
-GIMP for quick image manipulation…And many more system processes………
*Observation, sometimes when I click close button[i.e,"X"] of GIMP
suddenly PC stops responding for about 3 sec but never HANG !…Obviously I can’t expect MORE from My PIII 500MHz
So I came to the conclusion that LINUX is not stable(‘;’)……..Infact ROCK SOLID !
Today I got the reply from root@beigetower. And they have given me an account.So letus start setting up the Photo gallery using COPPERMINE.
Finally I created this Logview-1.0 A simple Super Karamba Theme for KDE 3.X which displays System Logs on the Desktop itself.
Yaa..Finally Mandrake Linux 9.2 is out.I cant see any such New Features, but worth having a set. A FIRST LOOK from ofb.biz.Some quotes
“…Four release cycles after MandrakeSoft first seriously took aim at the corporate desktop, it is my opinion that they have overwhelmingly succeeded. Mandrake Linux 9.2 exhibits a level of refinement that we have not previously encountered with a GNU/Linux distribution from any developer…. ”
The Sharer - a NY Times Magazine interview with Linus Torvalds. This is a vary short interview, but worth reading.The best piece out of it is #
NY Question : People position you as the nemesis to Bill Gates…?
Linus:…”from a technology angle, Microsoft really has been one of the least interesting companies. So I’ve never seen it as a ”Linus versus Bill” thing. I just can’t see myself in the position of the nemesis, since I just don’t care enough. To be a nemesis, you have to actively try to destroy something, don’t you? Really, I’m not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect. “
For those without a NY Times account Try Here.
And THIS is for slashdotters.
