When I interviewed Richard Stallman back in 1999, he had some interesting thoughts on the subject of freedom:
I'm going to keep working on the free software movement, because I don't see who's going to replace me, and I don't see how I could do something more important in some other area. The issues of freedom that everybody's heard of are much more important than this - freedom of speech, freedom of the press, free assembly. The reason I'm not more involved with them is that I don't know what to do about them very effectively.

Today, Fibre Channel is the dominant enterprise storage technology, but as with all technologies, eventually something better comes along. If you're lucky, that something is also less complex and less expensive. For storage, that something may be ATA over Ethernet (AoE), a simple and open network protocol that allows storage to be accessed over Ethernet. Here's how you can set up a test server to provide shared storage using AoE.

FSMLabs announced support for developing and deploying hard real-time applications on Freescale Semiconductor's PowerQUICC III communications processors containing a PowerPC core.

The Bourne Again Shell's history mechanism, a feature adapted from the C Shell, maintains a list of recently issued command lines, also called events, providing a quick way to reexecute any of the events in the list. This mechanism also enables you to execute variations of previous commands and to reuse arguments from them. You can replicate complicated commands and arguments that you used earlier in this login session or in a previous one and enter a series of commands that differ from one another in minor ways. The history list also serves as a record of what you have done. It can prove helpful when you have made a mistake and are not sure what you did, or when you want to keep a record of a procedure that involved a series of commands.
