Can the Linux Foundation set up a definition where things just have to be in certain locations, regardless of distro, and certain commands that just have to work, regardless of distro?
If you think that zero is Egyptian, than why not claim it is prehistorical? Indeed the first cave men already had the concept of nothing, zero wife, zero food but zero lions in sight. The Egyptian zero is "just" a reference on a distance scale; it marks the transition from zero meaning "nothing" to zero meaning "the reference"; great stuff but not yet there.
The digit zero, used in positional notation, is indeed Indian, as you correctly but partially quoted later. It is a fundamental advancement as it makes algebraic computation dramatically easier. Its actually what allows the transition from geometry-based mathematics, like in ancient Greece, to algebra-based mathematics, like in the Arabic world during the middle ages. And then all the way down to the Turing machine, which performs a minimal set of read/save and algebraic operation necessary to solve any decidable problem.
Sorry, the number zero was an created 3700 years ago, and not in India.
Sorry, but you're wrong, racist, and fat.
I'm trying to think a India's business, or cultural contrabutions (sic) to humanity in general;
Like, literally, the number zero. Half of the binary digits where invented in India. The other half in Africa.
and then they offered server side "rendering"
There are actually two features.
The first is actual server side rendering, where they would send you some kind of compressed image. This method is used by Opera Mini for android, "feature" nokia phones and I guess even iphones.
If you want to know what you're installing you cannot know how long it ill take.
More accurately: The uncertainty of installation time multiplied by the uncertain of package content is greater than or equal to the reduced Plank constant.
(I found about about Google via an Scientific American article.)
I found it on altavista, while looking for something else
I had the displeasure of having to use libre office and open office and I can say that I would rather pay for Microsoft Office which I don't, then use free Libre/Open office.
Fixed that for you
