Μιλήσαμε πρόσφατα για ένα γράμμα από τον κ. Γκέιτς για να προστεθούν χαρακτηριστικά στα έγγραφα γραφείου που να κάνουν δύσκολη τη πρόσβαση από τρίτους κατασκευαστές. Θα μιλήσουμε τώρα για ένα ακόμα γράμμα από τον κ. Γκέιτς για να προστεθούν χαρακτηριστικά στο BIOS των υπολογιστών ώστε να είναι δυσκολότερη η λειτουργία από τρίτα λειτουργικά συστήματα. Μπορείτε …

Code of conduct και ελληνικές κοινότητες ΕΛ/ΛΑΚ

Ένα πρόβλημα με τις κοινότητες ελ/λακ είναι ότι μερικά από τα μέλη δεν ακολουθούν τους τυπικούς κανόνες συμπεριφοράς, και αυτό έχει το αποτέλεσμα να δημιουργείται συχνά ένα αρνητικό κλίμα.

Εγκατάσταση του Ubuntu 8.04

Ολοκλήρωσα πριν λίγο την εγκατάσταση του Ubuntu 8.04 (έκδοση 64bit). Περιγράφω παρακάτω τις επιλογές που έκανα και τα τυχόν προβλήματα που αντιμετώπισα. Αν και είχα Ubuntu 7.10, επέλεξα να κάνω εγκατάσταση από την αρχή, διότι έχω κάνει τόσες αλλαγές στο σύστημα που είναι πολύ πιθανό η αναβάθμιση να μη λειτουργήσει. Ωστόσο, ο πιο σημαντικός λόγος …
