Is Open Source Different In Europe Than In the US?

MartinB Re:Primary vs Secondary (399 comments)

This isn't an XOR problem, so who cares which is "more important", especially when the result for using Open Source is the same either way?

Well, if you're trying to persuade someone/a group of people to adopt OSS, and you don't have the information about each individual's motivating factors, understanding which are the more likely is useful, no?

Particularly if you're spending money on communication channels, remembering the old quote of Half my ad spend is wasted. I wish I knew which half.

IBM Roadrunner Flips through Petaflop Barrier

MartinB MartinB writes  |  more than 6 years ago

MartinB writes "IBM's Roadrunner Supercomputer has achieved petaflop speeds at Los Alamos. Built from 6,948 dual-core AMD Opterons and 12,960 Cell engines and running Red Hat, Roadrunner outpaces the current Supercomputer Leader: Blue Gene/L (also at Los Alamos), which runs at a pedestrian 478.2 teraflops. Roadrunner will primarily be used for national security, but will also help scientists perform research into energy, astronomy, genetics and climate change. (Disclaimer: I work for IBM, but no priviledged information was used to produce this post)"
