As a kid, I had similar project known as "solar cooker" at the time. I had found blueprint for the device in the "Galaksija" magazine, which was very popular science magazine in former Yugoslavia. But my device was quite simpler and less powerful, but it could boil 2l of water in about 10min. if it is properly adjusted on bright summer day. :)

+ - Is Linux at the End of its Life Cycle?-> 3

Submitted by Glyn Moody
Glyn Moody (946055) writes "That's what Nikolai Pryanishnikov, president of Microsoft Russia, seems to think. Quoted in the context of continuing questions about Russia's plans to create its own national operating system based on GNU/Linux, Pryanishnikov said [via Google Translate]: "We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is at the end of its life cycle." An off-the-cuff comment, or something more?"
