Update Makes Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 More Scalable

Early on, the scalability of the Linux operating system--or more precisely, the lack thereof--was a hindrance to the adoption of Linux as a strategic platform for enterprise-class applications that needed more than one or two processors. But over the years, the scalability of Linux has been stretched such that it can span much of the very scalable hardware to which it has been ported. But, there's always room for more, and that is why Red Hat last week put out an update to its Enterprise Linux 4 to extend SMP scalability even further.

Commentary: Gates wants poor to spend $600+, not $100 or $200, for computers

I don't make these things up. I just read the news, in this case a Reuters article about Bill Gates expressing disdain for $100 stripped-down, crank-powered laptops running Linux while pushing a Microsoft-sponsored "ultra-mobile computer" expected to cost between $599 and $999. While I -- like many others -- have doubts that putting $100 ultra-basic laptops in poor children's hands will solve the world's problems, I resent Gates's attitude. I'd like one of the "$100 machines" myself, even if it costs me $200 or $300.

Q Re Gnopernicus Screen Reader - Members Only

My question in a nut shell then is this: if those guys can do a podcast of Groklaw automatically, why can't the same mechanism be used to podcast anything in text a blind person wanted read, preferably in Ogg? Of course, a person on his own computer doesn't need a podcast, only the file.

[Got an account on Groklaw? Know something about screen readers? Accessibility is an urgent need.]
