Dell to introduce Ubuntu for Desktop Pc's!

Dell has announced that it would include Ubuntu as one of the options for the users to select while purchasing the notebook/desktop from the Giant itself.This news has come out two years after the initial announcement made by Dell chairman and chief executive Mr.Michael Dell while addressing the "Computer Business Review " on May 2005. This was a major step taken by the Software Giant in order to bring linux into the Desktop environment.Linux as such is an open source software ,which can be edited in any way by anyone(unlike windows) and can be redistributed legally(More info on Ubuntu and open source on Ramanujam's blog).

When a question arised on what family of linux to be used,Ubuntu V7.04 was clearly the "one".So as of May it is expected that about 130,000 system will be Preloaded with Ubuntu and 95000 with openoffice and about 70,000 promotions for Firefox browser(open source).So this new step taken by Dell is to make people aware of the advantages of the open source technology.

USB sticks Legacy!!

Universal Serial Bus Sticks is "THE" founding of the century.Its small compact and portable which perhaps makes it the coolest one.It fits into a purse(where samba usually carries) and can be carried unnoticeable.USB sticks(storage devices) are referred to as just USB's due to the fact that these are the most frequently used devices of the universal bus family(remember USB which is a port is not the same as USB sticks).

Coming to the sizes of the Usb sticks ,they vary in sizes depending on the storage capacity of the sticks from 39x12x2 mm(which by far is the smallest in the world ) to the size of a handycam cassette(which can store upto 350 GB).Talking about the uses,I use it in my college to transfer movies that i download from college to my home(quite handy eh!!).One of my forum friends who lives in Canada was asked to visit the FBI office for some verifications there he happened to get hold of a computer and the next thing he did was plugged in his Usb and stole the "Top Secret Face Recognition Software which was developed specially for the FBI's" and uploaded it over the internet(how is that for an effective usage lol!).

Due to the recent craze for this little memory sucker there has been a steady decrease in the demand for DVD's which can be written only once unlike the sticks.The transfer speed of these sticks also very good and goto about 20mbit/s in very good computers ,and this is possible due to the introduction of USB v2.0 .
