The Atlantis release is in orbit

  • The Atlantis release is in orbit

    Yes, as you might have noticed in the title, we have started to name our releases and we are more than proud to present you our latest one, Atlantis.

    The reason why we started naming the releases has to do with us changing our work method. Our team has grown since the last release and in order to give each team member time to do their task, we now freeze the ISO development at a certain point and to try to avoid confusion by calling it the December release, while the ISO has a November date in its name. Also, it emphasizes the fun factor in this project. Like you, we are just having fun creating and sharing our work with you.

    To stay in the space theme, we named this release by Endeavour’s older sister Shuttle Atlantis and our future releases will carry other spacecraft’s names… And no, there’s not going to be an Endeavour release, nor one with the troubled Space Shuttle names like Columbia or Challenger in case you’re wondering…

6 Reasons to Pick Linux Over Windows

Almost all students do their work on laptops and PCs that run on Windows. Of course, some of you are lucky enough to afford something that runs on Apple’s macOS. While Windows is a popular OS, it’s far from being perfect. Few students are even aware that their PCs and laptops can run on various operating systems.

One of the alternatives students often overlook is Linux. Many believe that this OS is hard to manage. That’s why they prefer to either buy or, in some cases, pirate Microsoft’s creation unless it comes pre-installed on the device, of course.

It’s true that Linux is harder to install than its counterpart. But it has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. So, what exactly sets it apart?

    It's Brian Kernighan discussing the formation of Unix, starting from the back story of the creation of Bell Labs, including predecessors CTSS and Multics, and C predecessors BCPL which was modified to become B, and why Dennis Richie added types to B to make C.
