Submission + - Cold Spring Harbor Suspends Chancellor Watson

mosel-saar-ruwer writes: We all knew that it was only a matter of time, and tonight, it's offical: Cold Spring Harbor has suspended its Chancellor, the Nobel laureate, Dr. James Watson. Watson now joins Harvard's ex-President, Dr. Lawrence Summers, among prominent academics who have learned that there are some topics which we just don't broach anymore. Oh well, so much for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and freedom of inquiry. By the way, there was some worry earlier this week that Dr. Watson might actually be arrested in England, for having violated the British "hate crimes" laws; here's to hoping that he at least makes it home without being imprisoned.

This is already available in Linux:

  • hit ctrl-alt-F[1-6] to get out of the current X session to a virtual terminal
  • login with other user
  • xinit -- :1

Now you have two completely separate X sessions running at the same time. I've no idea if there's a point-and-click (x|k|g)dm way to do this, but the capability is there.
