The BBC have launched a new radio programme called "Click On" on BBC Radio 4, dedicated exclusively to IT issues, the first of its kind. It is broadcast on Wednesday evenings at 21.00.
The first edition covered home networking, accessibility, and e-forensics, all from a layman's perpective. How long before it explains Open Source in a way that's understandable to all?"

On top of adding asynchronous SCSI scanning, multi-threaded USB probing, and many driver updates, the Linux 2.6.20 kernel will include a full virtualization (not para-virtualization) solution. Kernel-based Virtual Machine (or KVM for short) is a GPL software project that has been developed and sponsored by Qumranet. In this article we are offering a brief overview of the Kernel-based Virtual Machine for Linux as well as offering up in-house performance numbers as we compare KVM to other virtualization solutions such as QEMU Accelerator and Xen.
