Although the OS isn’t actually a product yet, only an announcement, we’re incredibly excited to see what Google comes up with for their first real launch into the OS market (Android notwithstanding). All we really know about this Linux distro is that Google aims to build a real “cloud OS” where web applications run in the company’s Chrome web browser. We also know that their goals include a fast boot time to get you on the web quickly and an OS which is safe from malware and viruses. But whatwe don’t know about Chrome OS could fill a room. According to Google, this OS will make its debut in the second half of 2010. We’re not sure if we can stand the wait. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 4. Ubuntu Netbook RemixThe Ubuntu Netbook Remix is a netbook-friendly version of one of the most popular Linux distros, Ubuntu. This OS features a customizable Ubuntu Mobile Edition (UME) Launcher which basically serves to replace the desktop for easy access to applications and system settings. Categories on the left display related icons when clicked and a “Favorites” category lets you store your most frequently used applications for quick launching. Remix also offers a unique window switcher which lets you move between programs similar to how you switch between tabs in your web browser. This version of Linux is available for download now from here. center_img Late last year, we boldly proclaimed that your next computer might be a Linux PC. Thanks to the ever-growing market for the low-end machines dubbed “netbooks,” this seemed like a real possibility at the time. But then, MSI’s U.S. sales director Andy Tung had to come along and burst our bubble saying that the Linux machines were seeing a higher return rate than their Windows counterparts. For a while, that seemed it would be the end of hope for this next big “Linux for consumers” push. Or it was at least until this month, when Todd Finch, Dell senior product marketing manager, made a very different claim. He noted that return rates for Linux machines were about the same as those for Windows. Is this a second chance for the Linux netbook? Perhaps.  All that being said, you don’t have to buy a netbook with Linux pre-installed to enjoy what this “alternative” OS has to offer. There are several versions out there which you can try today, no purchase required. And there are even more soon-to-launch distros which really get us excited. 1. JolicloudThe netbook OS getting the most buzz today is one that doesn’t scream “I’m a Linux distro!” Instead, Jolicloud’s internet OS provides easy access to all your favorite applications whether those are online apps like Gmail and Facebook or desktop apps like Skype and Boxee. A bar at the top tracks all the applications you’re currently running for easy switching between them. However, the most unique element to this netbook OS is the social component which lets you “subscribe” to other Jolicloud users so you can see what applications they’ve installed and vice versa. Jolicloud is still in private alpha, but those who signed up to try it are starting to receive their invites now. You can request one too from the Jolicloud home page. 2. gOS’s Cloud 1.0Most people remember gOS as the distro that tried and failed to make it big by way of a deal with Walmart. The company was the pre-installed OS for the low-end Everex machines sold at the American superstore. But that failure shouldn’t count gOS out of the running just yet. For one thing, the Everex machines were boring, cheap desktop computers sold without monitors. Plus, the Walmart shoppers…well…let’s just say they probably didn’t know what they were getting into. While the original gOS is still available for download today, we’re more intrigued by the company’s upcoming Cloud 1.0, an OS optimized for notebooks. This new version boots straight to a web browser (one that looks just like Google Chrome, in fact). Cloud is supposed to go into private beta this year. You can sign up here to be one of the first to try it. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 3. Moblin 2.0Moblin 2.0 is a netbook OS which is publicly available right now. Designed for Intel Atom-based netbooks, this Linux distro focuses on aggregating your social networking activity and media content. A dynamic start page called the “Myzone” is the centralized area where you can get instant access to files, tasks, your calendar, updates from your social networks, and more. Unfortunately though, when it comes to social networks, only Twitter and Last.fm are supported at this time. If you’re not sure if Moblin is right for you, there’s a “test drive” available as a downloadable live image. Once you’re ready to install it for good, you can grab the full download. sarah perezlast_img read more

And with the ballooning debts in Europe, many have suggested that these opportunities in Europe are even more restricted.But is the U.S. really in better shape than Europe for entrepreneurship? According to an infographic created by Grasshopper, the differences between the regions aren’t as great as one might imagine.The infographic compares what it takes to become an entrepreneur in several Western European nations with what it takes in the U.S. The U.S. leads with entrepreneurial activity as a percentage of GDP: 11.3% in the U.S. as compared to the next closest competitor, the U.K. 6.3%.It’s not that the U.S. has the lowest barriers to starting a business. Sweden, the U.K. and the Netherlands all have fewer barriers, according to the infographic. Nor is it that the U.S. has proportionally more immigrant entrepreneurs.But the U.S. does have proportionately more entrepreneurs, and according to the infographic, they are among the most optimistic and least fearful. And perhaps this, rather than any legal or economic circumstance, is what makes the difference. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgThe pool at the Commonwealth Games Village has gathered impurities due to the incessant rain in the Capital over the past few weeks and has forced the Indian aquatics squad to delay moving in to the facility until Monday. The Indian team has been in the Capital since September 6 but has not shifted to the Games Village which was opened for athletes on Thursday.The team is currently staying at a hotel in Karol Bagh.”We have had a lot of rain in the past few weeks so the water at the swimming pool in the Village wasn’t good enough for the swimmers to use,” India Chef de Mission Bhubaneswar Kalita told MAIL TODAY on Sunday ” There are two pools at the Village and although both of them have been cleaned, we needed purification certificate so that they can be used.”We have already got it (certificate) and the Indian team will move into the Village tomorrow at 10 am,” he added.Kalita said the squad itself sought permission from the Organising Committee and him to stay at a hotel that is closer to the Shyama Prasad Mukherjee aquatic complex where it goes twice a day to train.”The swimming complex is closer to the hotel where the team is staying so they preferred to stay there until we are fully ready with the pool at the Village,” he added.However, sources within the Swimming Federation of India ( SFI) claim that it was the OC which asked the team to stay at the hotel until it was asked to move in. While the majority of the team members were in the Capital much ahead of the Games, Virdhawal Khade and Sandeep Sejwal arrived on September 19 from Bangalore with coach Nihar Amin.advertisementAmin said his wards are at the peak of their form and would come up with good performances when the Games get underway. ” They have been training very hard and their performance has also improved over the past one year.We have stiff competition in the Games with swimmers from Australia, England, Canada and South Africa, and I don’t want to predict the outcome at this point,” Amin said. ” At this point, I can only say that they are injury free and are well prepared for the challenge ahead.”last_img read more

first_imgNursing her ambition of still becoming Himachal Pradesh’s chief minister, Congress’ most enduring and much loved veteran Vidya Stokes – who says she has lived on a non-cereal diet for 50 years – hopes to finally achieve the goal in what could be the last fight of her over four-decade-long political career.But in a male-dominated state, where even past royalty is revered, Stokes, a long-time Indian hockey administrator and the daughter-in-law of an American missionary, is still looking to score that master stroke in politics.At 84, the oldest candidate in the Himachal Pradesh assembly polls, she is still in the field and welcomes the younger party aspirants in the electoral fray.”I am happy to see the younger lot in the fray. For me they are not a challenge. Our aim is to bring the party back to power in the state at any cost,” Stokes, a seven-time legislator, including five stints from this constituency in Shimla district, told IANS in an interview.Stokes stressed that throughout her political career, she has remained loyal to the Congress.”I have not demanded or bargained for any post from the party. Whatever the party offered me, I accepted it with grace,” she said.On the race for chief minister’s post if the party returns to power, Stokes, who is known for her proximity to the Gandhi family, said: “I think at this point in time, our objective is to bring the party back to power and get rid of this corrupt (BJP) government.”She said she has no qualms that she was never offered the top post in the state despite being active in state politics since 1974, after the death of her husband Lal Chand Stokes.”Look, when you are working in the party, serve it as a foot soldier. For me becoming chief minister is not important. Leave it for the party leadership to decide,” said Stokes.”If I couldn’t secure the top berth (in the state) that doesn’t mean the party has not taken care of me well. I was offered a (governor’s) post back in the 1990s, but I preferred to stay back in the state politics to serve the people,” she said to a query whether she was recently offered a gubernatorial berth.Political observers believe Stokes, a prominent apple grower, was always chief ministerial stuff but the personality of Raja Saab (as five-time chief minister and present state unit chief Virbhadra Singh is popularly known) has always overshadowed her.An observer said, “Every time when the Congress came to power, Stokes, being the seniormost leader in the state, made a serious bid for the chief ministerial post but Virbhadra Singh managed to get it. This time too he has not given up his hopes for a comeback.”Interestingly, Stokes and Virbhadra Singh, who have been at loggerheads for the last two decades, have joined hands before the elections and, unlike the past, the latter is also campaigning for her.Stokes is also known for being on a non-cereal diet for the last 50 years. During her long backbreaking campaigning in this constituency which she represented five times – 1974, 1982, 1985, 1990 and 1998 – she prefers to eat only salads and vegetables.In the last two assembly elections, 2003 and 2007, she represented Kumarsein, a seat scrapped in the delimitation exercise and its areas merged with Theog and Shimla (rural). She is now back in her old constituency.Throughout her political and sports administrator career, Stokes never courted any controversy. “One should remain sincere with one’s work; nobody will dare to harm you then,” Stokes advised the IANS correspondent.Stokes is known for not taking even a penny of her salary, be it as a legislator or as a minister, throughout her political career.Stokes’ father-in-law Satyanand (Samuel Evans Stokes Jr), an American missionary, first introduced high quality apples in the Kotgarh-Thanedar belt in upper Shimla in the early 1920s. Stokes now manages most of her family’s orchards.On being asked what career she would have chosen had she not been in politics, she said: “I would have been a successful banker.”Before venturing into politics at the age of 36, I was the youngest State Bank of India woman director,” said Stokes.advertisementlast_img read more
