Subject: Use "free" to monitor memory usage continuously

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The "free" command is used to display the memory usage info of your computer. But with the normal "free" command, you get the info only once. To use "free" to display the memory usage of your computer continuously, you can use the "-s" option with the "free" command.

Subject: Bugs: What you see is not always what it is

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

The “bug” existed back in the old times of the floppy drives. These drives seemed to fail very quickly on linux systems compared to MS DOS/Windows. Now, a normal observer would say linux had bad handling of the drives or was doing something messy that made these drives crap out ever so often. But as it turned out, the issue was the complete opposite.

Technical glitches can turn out to be expensive. Just ask Nasdaq, which first proposed a $40 million settlement for issues around the Facebook IPO, and recently upped it to $62 million -- and that still might not be enough.

Subject: Nokia is dismissing Meltemi, a Linux-based platform for feature phones

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Meltemi, a Linux-based platform for feature phones, was planned to replace Series 40, the platform that has been around since 1999. Series 40, which runs on some of the top feature phones in the world, has brought a lot of success to Nokia. However, the software was getting old, and Nokia reportedly felt that Series 40 needs to be replaced by something new and Meltemi was that something new.
