Amazon has the DVDs for sale sometimes, but they are region 2, so you'll need to use a multi-region player or rip them.
Let me guess
Why is it OK for tech companies to be run by psychopaths, but not banking?
Presumably because glasses will turn with your head / field of vision, whereas a tie will not.
I guess a hat would work too.
Getting rid of caps lock - awesome.
Replacing it with a search key - asinine.
You're just going to clip it accidentally and pop up some irritating search window.
Put ctrl back where it belongs - if you want a search key, put it somewhere out the way.
Because they're VMware and they don't have anything more useful to do?
I believe it's currently syslinux
Whilst I love grub for my desktop, it's not the best choice for an embedded type system where we want minimal code and maximum speed.
I'm looking to see if we can replace with lilo, and not have filesystem code in the bootloader
What on earth makes you think that an OS running a multiprocess browser has no scheduler?
This is a confusion about what "native application" means - Linux apps vs native code. It does support Native Client - http://code.google.com/p/nativeclient/
I'd suggest you start by comparing what's wrong with Linux and the benefit of fixing that vs the cost of developing a new kernel.
Also bearing in mind the cost and implications of making all hardware vendors produce drivers for all new hardware.
It's not really practical.
We're using ext3 because that's what the bootloader supports right now. The plan is to move to ext4.
Hate to rain on your parade, but just about all US houses have 220/240V as 2-phase, 180 degree opposed - they use it to run the range (cooker!) and dryer.
"then it would have been used against all the servers that support the world's webpages. Wikipedia's Ubuntu servers, for example, or getting deeper, something like Amazon"
You have an SSH account on Wikipedia? Amazon?
Surely a sledghammer, whilst local, is not a privilege escalation?
Which part of "local" are you not understanding?
