About quantum computing: The Quantum Integrity Postulate

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

While in physics class today at school, reading about nuclear/quantum physics reminded me of several PC World articles I have read before about quantum computing and the horror stories about data decoherence.

First of all, let me tell you what quantum computing is: It's the ability to process large numbers much faster and more accurately than current-day computers through the use of quantum binary data.

Example of classical (current) binary data:

Well, after all that messing about, I've got ARMedslack on a SD card. Again, there was a little hitch with cfdisk, can't remember the actual wording, but it refused to do the partitioning. So I used gparted instead. Haven't decided what I going to use this SheevaPlug for, there's a few possibilities. I was more interested in installing ARMedslack, than any practical use. But I'm sure I'll think of something to do with it. Here's the obligatory screenshot (the white line isn't hiding anything, I...

Viva la difference. Again?

Posted 09-09-2010 at 08:34 AM by rich_c

Following on from a couple of other people’s blog posts debating whether the wide variety of available Linux distros is a good or bad thing, I thought I’d do a quick comparison of three fairly similar distros. There are subtle differences that might suit some users’ needs so that one is, for them, better than the others.

The three I’d like to compare are SimplyMEPIS, PCLinuxOS and Linux Mint (Debian). All three are arguably very similar in that they aim to provide an easy to use...

Shooting Themselves in the Foot?

Posted 09-08-2010 at 06:31 AM by dixiedancer (A Simple Kid's Opinion)

The latest versions of Ubuntu and Fedora seem to work alot better on newer machines than older ones like mine. In many ways that's good, but I wonder if Canonical and Red hat aren't shooting themselves in the foot somewhat. Here's why:

Ubuntu and Fedora are intended to be "newbie friendly," an ideal choice for those just starting out in Linux. But one of the main reasons people look for an alternative OS is because they can't afford a Mac, and the newer versions of Windows...
