Why Microsoft Should Acquire Linux

  • CoolTechZone.com; By Gundeep Hora (Posted by gsh on Feb 26, 2007 8:28 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Microsoft
Alright, I’m going to say this. I think Microsoft should acquire Linux. Now, I understand that Linux is not as independent of an OS as Windows; it’s a movement towards the open environment for applications; therefore, the standard M&A process won’t work.

  • Story Type: Editorial; Groups: Microsoft
"Apple hasn't done any of those things." Bill, seriously, Apple has not needed to do any of the following as they do not make a practice out of egging on hackers to exploit their OS. That and Apple’s market share is not as large as Windows, therefore the time spent targeting you and yours offers a larger bang for the effort.

Abit AB9 Linux Motherboard Review

In this article we will be looking at the impact of CONFIG_NO_HZ/Dynamic Ticks, which will be found in the Linux 2.6.21 kernel. The option has been available as a patch for quite a while, but not until Linux 2.6.21-rc1 had it been merged into the upstream kernel. When enabled, there will only be timer ticks when they are needed. The end-user benefit is cooler-running processors and increased power savings. We have investigated this change with a notebook and desktop computer.
