No, Linux is not a trademark. The Linux kernel is freely distributed and is not associated with any business. A trademark is a name used by a business to distinguish their product that has protection under copyright law. e.g. Windows Vista is a trademark of Microsoft, no one can use the name Windows Vista to describe a product that they are selling because that name has protection under copyright law.

Giant Snake-Shaped Generators Could Capture Wave Power 432

Posted by timothy
Roland Piquepaille writes "UK researchers have developed a prototype of a future giant rubber tube which could catch energy from sea waves. The device, dubbed Anaconda, uses 'long sea waves to excite bulge waves which travel along the wall of a submersed rubber tube. These are then converted into flows of water passing through a turbine to generate electricity.' So far, the experiments have been done with tubes with diameters of 0.25 and 0.5 meters. But if the experiments are successful, future full-scale Anaconda devices would be 200 meters long and 7 meters in diameter, and deployed in water depths of between 40 and 100 meters. An Anaconda would deliver an output power of 1MW (enough to power 2,000 houses). These devices would be deployed in groups of 20 or even more providing cheap electricity without harming our environment."
