Microsoft and the National Health Service

Posted 07-19-2010 at 04:43 PM by rich_c

I saw a ĎThe Registerí article late last week regarding the rebate deal between the NHS and Microsoft coming to an end. I didnít think too much of it apart from hoping that alternative (FOSS) solutions will get proper consideration. The benefits being cost savings, which would seem to be a very high UK Government priority and avoiding a situation in the future where a monopolistic vendor might feel they can feather their nest with an initial generous deal followed by less favourable terms once...

Linux Boot Process

Posted 07-19-2010 at 06:21 AM by QueenZ

The beautiful thing about Linux is that you can actually get to know it. Iím writing my own Desktop Environment right now so it should be really great.

Pretty nice, isn't it?
How did I do that?
I got a good karuma. haha.

By the way, I was watering the rose and sakura seeds while wondering why the sakura seeds don't begin to sprout.
Guess what. I found the reason!
