Itís surprisingly hard to find a definitive answer to the question of what happens with Linux block device names when you get past drive 26 (ie. counting from one, the first disk is /dev/sda and the 26th disk is /dev/sdz, what comes next?) I need to find out because libguestfs is currently limited to 25 disks, and this really needs to be fixed.
Here's something interesting, but all of the details are not yet known at this time as the official announcement doesn't seem to have been issued yet. TransGaming, the company behind the Cedega software for running Windows games on Linux, is going to be replacing the Cedega Gaming Service with something now called GameTree Linux.
First, letís get the niceties out of the wayÖ the Mageia team would like to wish you all a very happy New Year, for you and your families . We really hope that 2011 will be the Mageia year for users, contributors and partners so that we can propose and promote a rock solid and innovative open source environment.
While we are speaking about the future, the new year comes with the start of the real work!
Iíve always loved to tinker with things. The Teddy Ruxpin doll I had when I was younger, the first home PC my parents bought for me and my brother, and eventually Linux (thanks to my awesome brother, Eric, who got my video drivers working back when I didnít have a clue what was going on). Over the years in Linux Desktop land Iíve always seemed to gravitate towards the Gnome desktop environment. It was simple, functional, fast and well thought out. Over time, my lust for customizing every aspect of the desktop to fit my liking went into hibernation as I started to work on projects and divert my attention elsewhere.
Walmart lost interest in GNU/Linux on netbooks for some reason but welcomes it again on tablets. Funny how that works, eh? Small cheap computers and GNU/Linux go together well, that other OS does not fit and M$ cannot justify tinkering with the market. Chuckle.
