Few days ago I've been into some C coding and again got impressed by how greatly linux is organised! Dependencies are written the clear way. The "./configure" script is a standard. The "Makefile" is a standard. and so on... they aren't strictly linux-related but I mostly work in Linux environment... I actually refer to UNIX standards I guess. It is so simple to create and redistribute own application using standard utils, making it easily-installable! I love this!

I started Experimenting with it and the Interest Got Me Join a Computer Institute "SSI" - A Computer

Ads on some Linux related websites...

Posted 06-22-2010 at 05:30 PM by rich_c

Some sites seem to pay no heed to what ads are displayed on their pages! If I had 1 for every time I'd seen a M$ related ad on a Linux/FOSS related site, I'd have quite a lucrative ad derived income...

As most people are aware Adobe has stopped support for Flash on 64bit, no one knows for how long. Do not use the 64bit flash beta, it has major security problems.
