Yay for more +OpenSource in Education!  Note that the school featured here are running +Ubuntu  in fact, on these PCs.  See Unity at 3:07 and 4:35.  Beautiful promo video, +Red Hat.  Here's an article from March 2014: https://insights.ubuntu.com/2014/03/25/an-ubuntu-pc-for-everyone-in-penn-manor-school-district-pennsylvania-usa/

"Because we’re mapping addresses algorithmically, we avoid any need for a database of overlay addresses per host. We can calculate instantly, with no database lookup, the host address for any given container address.". The Fan networking, ready for testing in +Ubuntu​ images for AWS and GCE.
Watchful observers will have wondered why “W” is yet unnamed! Without wallowing in the wizzo details, let's just say it's been a wild and worthy week, and as it happens I had the well-timed opportunity of a widely watched keynote today and thought, perhaps wonkily, that it would be fun to ...

+Jay Wren​ to be honest, I'm not sure. I guess the COW only works, if you spawn multiple processes off the same binary on disk.

This is absolutely mind blowing...
We all agree, past events can affect the present. And present events affect the future. But few would credibly argue that future events can affect the past.

Quantum mechanics ie schrodingers equation, is an eigenvalue problem in space and time. In space such a solution is easy to contemplate. Waves run back and forth until only eigenfunction solutions which reproduce themselves or are self constant remain. The same happens in time in quantum mechanics. Waves run forward from particle/wave creation and backwards from measurement. The only self consistent solutions are time like eigenfunctions which are consistent with the boundary conditions. Hence particle/wave creation has to consistent with its eventual measurement. This self consistent propagation eliminates the-kill-your-parents paradox of backwards time travel.
