Submission + - Japan: A 7.1-tremor has attacked. (bbc.co.uk)

applematt84 writes: From the story: A powerful earthquake has hit north-east Japan, exactly one month after the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

The 7.1-magnitude tremor triggered a brief tsunami warning, and forced workers to evacuate the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

Submission + - Interstellar Software

applematt84 writes: I was thinking last night about the course of open source software and how patents and copyrights are threatening its' users and future. It lead me to wonder (because I'm an avid fan of Star Trek) if we ever achieve interstellar travel similar to the Star Trek universe, what software would be running in the back-end of these ships and controlling the every day lives of those aboard? I submit to you, slashdot readers, what are your thoughts on the best suited operating system that's available today (Linux, BSD, *cough* Microsoft, Apple) that might be around in the future to run these star ships and all their internal components?
