Why Windows is Less Secure Than Linux?

August 31, 2007

Came across this fascinating article on ZDNet, they say a picture is worth a thousand words and that’s certainly true in this case. The first show’s the system calls that occur in a Linux Server running Apache:

Google Tech Talk: One Laptop Per Child

August 31, 2007

The aim of OLPC is to change how kids learn.

Ivan Krstic, Chief Security Architect at OLPC gives a technical talk on how the laptop was designed and how they are going about building it. He goes to great length to explain why they are doing this, the rationale behind the project, and why this influenced many of the technical decisions.

How do you build laptops for kids?

The Original XO-1 laptop has the following spec:
Geode GX-500 1.0W, 366Mhz,16kb L1, cache no L2
128 MB RAM
512 MB NAND Flash

The newer version has the following hardware spec:
AMD Geode LX-700 0.8W, 433Mhz, 128KB L1, 128KB L2.
256 MB Ram
1024 MB NAND flash

The laptop has no moving parts which helps keep the power usage down. It;s peak power consumption is 4-5W, the standard consumption is closer to 1-2W. Compare this to a normal conventional laptop which is around 40 – 50W. One of the things that stands our for me in this talk is that the OLPC team and doing what is probably the most aggressive work in Power Management using Linux anywhere in the world. In order to conserve more power they’re goal is to suspend the machine every 2 to 3 seconds if nothing on the screen is changing. They actually target they have set is to be able to suspend and resume the machine at the edge of human perception which is ~100ms. That’s incredible!

If you set aside the social aspects of this project and focus purely on the technical goals they’re attempting to achieve, the OLPC project could radically change the way laptops are built. It’s well worth watching the talk, there’s a number of other unique advancements the project has made, and I for one will be keeping a close eye on its development.

Of course, they are using Linux:

Open-Source VS Proprietary Software

August 31, 2007

Since Linux hit the world with the open-source, there are so many aplications tailed with ‘open-source’ word. One of them is Firefox. Yes, this free browser has million of hits. Mostly defeated Internet Explorer.

I would like to appologize before. If I am allowed to give an opinion, I would like to say that few of open-source addicts are arrogant. They make some assaults (or jokes? :D) to Microsoft Corporation or it’s most products, by saying ‘Micro$oft’ or ‘Microshit’, and others. Also, they do their expression in images. There are so many, but some of them, you can see at pictures below:

Hahaha.. absolutely funny. Aren’t them? 😀 😀 😀

Internet Explorer for Linux

August 31, 2007

This is NOT fake. Yes, this is true. If you are IE addict and want to use it on Linux, so you are not to be worry. There’s a solution for you.

IEs4Linux is the simpler way to have Microsoft Internet Explorer running on Linux (or any OS running Wine).

No clicks needed. No boring setup processes. No Wine complications. Just one easy script and you’ll get three IE versions to test your Sites. And it’s free and open source.

Who is the target public?

WebDesigners that want to move to Linux but still need to test their sites on IE.
People who have to open IE-only sites

The IEs installations are smaller than usual because they include only the necessary files to have a good test browser (there is no Outlook, Media Player etc).

General instructions

IEs 4 Linux needs two packages: cabextract and Wine. You can install them using your Linux package manager (synaptic, apt-get, yum, emerge etc) or go to their sites.

After that, download IEs 4 Linux. Extract it. Run ‘ies4linux’. Follow the instructions.

In a terminal, you can do:
tar zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
cd ies4linux-*

Note: Please see these legal notices before using IEs4Linux.

Please, don’t use any of these IEs to navigate!! Get Firefox
