How linux reduces Global Warming?

1.linux is less on resources i.e., it uses less CPU,MEMORY which means power consumption is less.
on an average windows 7 consumes 600MB of RAM,but,linux uses only 200MB means linux consumes 1/3rd of power that of windows consumes in case of RAM.

Helping out a FOSS brother.

Posted 06-17-2010 at 08:31 AM by rich_c

I overheard my managers at work discussing a CV (Resume for our transatlantic friends.) that had arrived for their attention in odf format. They were clearly perplexed as to what to do with it, suggestions including opening it in notepad... Fortunately for the person who submitted it, I was able to offer to convert it for them. Naturally, I also expressed my approval for anyone who submits their CV in an open format!

Cheap Keyboards and Mice

Posted 06-16-2010 at 10:05 PM by disturbed1

The keyboards for my main PCs are quite old. Purchased sometime between 1999 and 2001. They are not the cleanest of things, some ink on the letters have worn off, and a few keys have become a little difficult to press at times. The oldest one is a Logitec multimedia keyboard, the other is a nice HP model with multimedia keys from the only OEM PC I've ever owned. They still work, they just have years of dust and dirt build up.

This got me thinking about the reason I still have these...
