Remzi talks about the free operating systems textbook he and Andrea wrote over the past few years. A good read!
 
Some thoughts on free, online textbooks (FOBs), given our initial experiences:

A surprisingly persuasive argument for why a college education should be completely 100% free. Bonus: a scheme to fund it.

Here's another shot from my recent Beijing/China trip. This one was taken atop the Beijing TV tower and facing some brilliantly lit buildings.   On the right bottom corner here, the dark area is a construction zone. I can't wait to see how this area changes as new buildings are completed. The last shot I shared here was taken from the same location, but looking in the opposite direction.  *Note:* I uploaded this one in full resolution, try zooming in and looking at the detail. Pretty nifty :)

NSF's PRObE is open for business.  It has 4 clusters, the largest of which has 1000 nodes, for research experiments in systems.  You get to take over a real compute cluster for a while, and do whatever you want to it; although supported by Emulab, you get unfettered access to the machines and the network.  Think of it as like high-power telescope for systems researchers.

In addition, there will soon be a 34-node system with 2000 x86 cores and a total of 84,864 NVIDIA K20 GPU cuda cores.

Come and kick the tires!
