The perfect FOSS kernel: Hybrid Linux and GNU Hurd

Posted 09-25-2010 at 05:34 PM by Kenny_Strawn (Kenny the one-teen comittee to stamp out Proprietary $uckware)

The Linux/HURD debate has been going on since the dawn of the GNU project and there are benefits and downsides to both projects.

Advantages to Linux:
  • Is very secure and has grown very much since it was first released
  • Is very popular and is free and open source software
  • Has grown (thanks in part to Ubuntu and Mint) extremely easy to use

Disadvantages to Linux:
  • Monolithic kernel design means that the entire kernel must be rebuilt to add or remove features

Who has two thumbs and is always closing the web browser with pandora running ? This Guy !

So the answer I came across was pithos.

Pithos is a Pandora client for the GNOME Desktop. The official Flash-based client is a CPU hog, and Pianobar is a great reverse-engineered implementation, but is command-line

You have to abandon most of the old grub legacy way of thinking. I have a large data partition to convert from ntfs to ext4. I will then be totally linux flavored.

Took some poached fish I had and added some vegetables to make fish soup. Then made home made tortillas to go along with it. My gosh it was good.

Decided to use my portable drill for other things. Pulled the motor and set it aside.

The rom drives in the computer my brother gave me are bad. No problem I can tear them apart for parts.

Realised I had almost enough old dead hd's to have enough magnets for a wind generator.

Need to finish...

This is the first of a series of posts about social networking over the Web. The majority of what I post will be my own observations and conjectures rather than an exhaustive scientific treatment, so DO NOT READ IT AS ONE. Thank you.

There is this phenomenon in the realm of social networking that I call 'meshing' with the network.
From the standpoint of a person entering the network, it is the initial process of connecting with the rest of the fabric of the network. Under...
