Android 2.2: Google's Catchupgrade

TRoLLaXoR TRoLLaXoR writes  |  more than 4 years ago

TRoLLaXoR writes "Technologist Grant Hayes hacks at Android from a unique perspective: while it's a novel approach to the mobile operating systems platform, it falls down for users because it lacks parity with the competition (iPhone, Symbian, et al). Until Google can release competitive offerings instead of "catchupgrades," Android will remain on the back-burner for both tech-needful business folks and gadget-minded geeks alike."

Avoid Common Errors In Linux and Unix

TRoLLaXoR TRoLLaXoR writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Trollaxor writes "IBM published an informative, insightful document by Dan Cormany about how to avoid Linux and Unix development errors for newbies. "Have you ever wondered why you get the errors Execute permission denied or The parameter list is too long? These are just a few of the common errors UNIX and Linux novices receive that they may not know how to avoid. This article explains such errors and provides workarounds and resolutions to these and other errors that may crop up." That and more! Cormany's article is a wonder for new Linux programmers looking to burnish their skill."

NetBSD.org Asking US $60,000 For NetBSD 6.0

TRoLLaXoR TRoLLaXoR writes  |  more than 5 years ago

Trollaxor writes "Hot on the heels of their NetBSD 5.0 release, the NetBSD organization is gearing up for NetBSD 6.0, due in just under a year ("The sixth major release for the six month of 2010!"). To make that happen, NetBSD is asking its industry partners, users, and anyone with spare change to contribute US $60,000. Matt Thomas, of NetBSD's core group, says the money will allow for "network performance improvements and embedded and realtime optimization," meaning NetBSD can finally move onto specialized hardware, something it has struggled with in the past. So far, they have $40. Do Slashdot readers find $60,000 an appropriate amount to sponsor the BSD family's middle child, or does the price outweigh the upgrade?"
