Pranav writes "Using semiconductor lasers, scientists from Takushoku University, Saitama University, and NTT Corporation achieved random number rates of up to 1.7 gigabits per second, which is about 10 times higher than the second-best rate, produced using a physical phenomenon. Future work may center on devising laser schemes that can achieving rates as high as 10 Gbps."
it's way too fuckin' hard to use. Period. Non geeks don't wanna mess with all this shit just to browse websites and create documents. So how much linux is "worth" (to them) is obvious; Not a damn cent.
