Time Event
M$'s Nuke v GPL


NOTE: Some of this may be a lil off read the article

This means that all of the programs you compile(and I know alot of you use gentoo, debian, etc) wont be able to run.

It works by the CPU needing a certifcation by the program. Intel and AMD have already started working on it. If it dosnt have the certification it wont run. If you dont buy the CPU that has this feature any server that has it you wont be able to connect to.

Im not sure but this may also mean that (home)programmers wont be able to code.

This is M$'s way to end there biggest threat, the open source community. THEY MUST BE STOPPED! Im going to try to organize something.

Current Mood: scared
Fun with archaic hardware
So, this is maybe slightly off topic, but I've been looking around and thought, if someone's gonna know it, it'll probably be in here.

So, I just recently got Yellow Dog Linux installed on my old Powermac 7500, and that's running great, fine and dandy. The other day, I got the idea to embark on yet another project, this time for no other reason to say that I did it. Seeing if I can get some sort of non Apple, open source OS on my Mac Classic.

It has a Motorola 68000, runs at a whopping 8 Mhz, has 4 megs of ram (wooo!), and a 40 meg hard drive. Display is a 9" 1 bit screen at 512 x 342. Also has a 1.4 meg floppy drive, and I've managed to make bootable zip disks with my zip drive for it (connected via SCSI).

Somehow I'm doubting my chances, but I figured i'd give it a shot. Won't someone please help encourage my mad scientist cravings? :)

Current Mood: hopeful
Pardon this question if it's too pedestrian for most users -- I'm brand new to Linux Land.

I am currently trying to get some sort of Linux equivalent to Windows' internet connection sharing feature to work on my system.

I am currently running SuSE Linux 8.0 and my internet connection is Earthlink DSL. Does anyone have any hints or ideas that could set me in the right direction?
