Who says Linux isn't ready for the world?

H/T +Jan Wildeboer
 
The new top500 list is out, here is what I found interesting:

- Compute accelerators startig to die: there are a couple of new NVIDIA Tesla systems, but overall the numbers are shrinking: Xeon PHI is down from 29 to 23, NVIDIA is down from 68 to 63, everything else is stable but irrelevant.

- Xeon PHI as a processor (rather than an accelerator) has finally appeared in one system.

- As expected, the latest Intel Xeon E5 systems are the ones taking over almost all of the spots of the systems that drop out, but there are also a couple of new Xeon E7.

- The only other CPU architecture that gained new systems is ShenWei/SunWay, which doubled the number of installed systems (now there are two) and holds the top spot but apparently missed the 100 petaflops goal they set by a few percent.

- The last Intel Core system (Xeon E5450) is gone, as expected.

- The seven SPARC systems are all still there, most of them were installed in 2015.

- Similarly, the 19 BlueGene systems from last time are all still there (and fairly high up the list), which is surprising given their age.

- Non-Linux systems are down from six to three. All of them run AIX on POWER7 (one additional P7 runs Linux) and are currently at #282, 283 and 417, so it will still take some time before the first two (both installed 2014) fall off the bottom of the list and everything runs Linux.

- While almost everything is a cluster, Cray managed to sell five new MPP machines that made it into the list, and the new #1 is also MPP.

- No POWER8 and no ARM to be seen anywhere, or any other architecture.

Alles wat in de bijbel staat is waar! Behalve die dingen die bewezen zijn door de wetenschap, die mag je niet letterlijk nemen
Goe bezig, religidioten!

Er is tegenwoordig veel discussie over de interpretatie van heilige teksten. Wist u dat een priester de "big bang"-theorie uitvond en dat kon verzoenen met zijn geloof en de bijbel? Theoloog Mettepenningen herdenkt Georges Lemaître omdat hij 50 geleden stierf.

I feel small. Yet in awe...
 
Scientists at LIGO have found more gravitational waves—another signal from two black holes, 14 and 8 times the Sun’s mass, that collided 1.4 billion years ago.

I bought a laptop that allows the screen to be folded back so it can be handled like a tablet.
Is there a way to check for this kind of events? I know the state of the lid can be found in /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID0/state , but it only returns closed or open...
Any clues?

Apparently KDE detected the orientation out of the box, but it lacked a decent on-screen keyboard.
So I gave Gnome 3(.18) another shot. Every reason I hated Gnome for, suddenly made sense... Gnome is made with tablets in mind!
I Guess I'll be sticking with Gnome for the forseeable future!

Werklozen kunnen in het buitenland wonen en online toch stempelgeld aanvragen, ook al mag dat niet. De privacywet staat niet toe dat adressen van de computers gecontroleerd worden.

"This monkey is going to heaven" by Pixies was playing in the background this morning.
My oldest son (4yo) turns to me and says: Daddy, this is really good music!

Interesting read from the 'other' Open Source evangelist.
 
Where have all the MacBooks gone at Linux conferences?
The days of open source people using MacBooks and running Mac OS seem to be ending.

La Stanza staat (zoals altijd) garant voor qualiteit. Je proeft gewoon dat de producten dagvers zijn, en de pasta zelfgemaakt is. Alle producten zijn met zorg uitgekozen en voorbereid, inclusief de uitstekende wijnkaart.
