During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn’s latest test beta –for the first time ever– this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

The HP company might start the production of PCs with preinstalled Linux system. However, the vendor’s global initiative is not yet relevant in Russia. HP’s Russian office said there is not much demand for open source OS in this country.
HP has been cooperating with Linux programmers in server solutions, PCs, notebooks, and thin clients for a long time. “Earlier personal computers with preinstalled Linux SuSe distribution 9.2 as well as Free-DOS, Windows XP Home, Pro, Vista were among the computers produced for Russia. Due to insignificant demand for Linux-running computers only systems with Free-DOS, Windows XP Home, Pro, Vista in our product line. Our policy here is determined by the market. If there is sufficient demand for Linux-runing computers, we will resume deliveries to Russia”, Dmitry Efremov, Manager of Desktop Computers Department of HP Russia told CNews.
Generally speaking, there is a certain demand for PCs with open source OS in Russia. Yet, it is currently insignificant in the total volume of PCs sold, HP said. Such operating systems are mostly used in business rather than home use.

Linux_On_Ipod

Can you believe?This is a strange picture of an ipod with linux loaded.Will it happen?Wait and see.

While looking around the internet i came to read this news from winspin .
Nintendo, the most family friendly of the gaming companies, may be opening the door to interactive porn. Specifically, the launch of the Wii remote has caused a chain reaction of innovation in the market for porn. In addition to adult sites creating Wii friendly navigation, there’s also a Wiibrator, activated by USB and bluetooth.

Ozgur Alaz reported on PSFK, “The last buzz about Wii is that it could begin a new generation of porn industry. “Wii Mote Strap” gives players the ability to give pleasure to computer women in matured themed games.”

“So shortly after getting the trial version of opera on the Wii I went to a free adult site Tiava.com to look at some photos. Yesterday I went back and… well apparently either the site maintainers are Wii enthusiasts or I’m not the only one. The site has added a “Wii friendly” interface for browsing their content. I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised the adult industry seems to always know where technology is going, but I’m surprised to see it so quick. The browser hasn’t been available but for a week now.” (arstechnica)

This is a news published in cnet.
Applications that test bandwidth speeds have been around for years, but Speedtest.net takes the concept a step further.

The site allows you to select servers to ping from around the country on an interactive map and graphically displays connections as they travel with varying speeds along the way. It also lets you store results of tests for your computer and sort them by date, time, speed and distance.

Finally, Speedtest provides a simple way to share your results with others–taking the practice of monitoring bandwidth into the Web 2.0 realm.
