Sure the NUC is, but the point of the article seems to be the next generation of Intel processors.

If he actually meant the NUC the core of the NUC is a kit for OEM's to create prototypes for embedded systems and hobbyists to do the same. The BIOS by default is Intel Visual BIOS which is designed for configuration even of things like fan speeds and clocking. And of course that BIOS can be blown away and replaced easily by design. So I'm not sure how that makes the problem of ignorance any better.

The temperature last June was -135.4 degrees below 0. Laugh at that. Its just .3 of a degree within being the coldest temperature ever recorded on the planet. Or how about this "scientist", Dr. David Viner of the Hadley Climate Research Center: "We have seen our last snowfall. A snowfall will become a rare and exciting event. Children will just grow up not knowing what snow looks like."

That was in the year 2000. 15 years later with winters colder than ever we see that his "science" was wrong. The number of people freezing to death has not gone down. The number of snowfalls in Florida has not gone down (it snowed there in January). Now if you still believe in whack-jobs who are doing politics and not science then just keep supporting them and not requiring to disclose where they came across this new-found alien science that no one knows about but the Environmental Quacks and no one can see but them. That is how we wind up with anti-vaxxers and the zealots behind the GMO hysteria.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the clearest demonstration of the anti-climate-change camp's lack of understanding about the difference between weather and climate and the total lack of understanding of the concept of an average.

Oh man sweet an unbiased report about the importance of Linux certifications! From a job board and a organization selling Linux certifications no less. I bet this report is totally legit and has hard numbers to back up all of the claims. I'm probably not going to be disappointing from some obvious slashvertisement.

Mommy, what happens to your files when you die?
