[News] Activists Help Schools & Environment with GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Linux green activists unite!

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux enthusiasts are really good at pulling together for the good of the 
| community, so here’s hoping they’ll be into the Installfest-for-Schools, a 
| green tech event that is going to be held by LinuxWorld and Untangle come 
| August.   


Why Linux Frightens Both the Software and Hardware Industry

,----[ Quote ]
| Desktop Linux and to some extent, the open source movement, has yet to burst 
| through the glass ceiling known as the mainstream media. Even when you 
| consider the fantastic power of user generated media on the Internet today, 
| in the end, the mainstream media remains in the driver seat.   
| Until you see more mainstream entities supporting Linux and open source 
| software alternatives, the world will remain in the dark as to a lower cost 
| alternative to what they are currently being asked to buy today.  



Windows, Linux vie for honours

,----[ Quote ]
| Projects include the "tickles kernel" which enables the processor to sleep 
| between tasks and better power management to USB peripherals.

| That lightness had also allowed Linux to become a strong player in the 
| embedded market, where energy efficiency was critical to success, Mr King 
| said.  


Linux, Windows duke it out over energy efficiency

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux appears to have an advantage at the moment: Companies are becoming 
| increasingly open to adopting the platform both in the server room and on the 
| desktop. Big-name vendors like IBM, HP, and Novell are giving the penguin a 
| push in the datacenter, framing it as a flexible and energy-efficient 
| platform. The fact that Linux offers greater virtualization opportunities 
| than Windows (a sentiment recently expressed by the VMWare CTO Mendel 
| Rosenblum) only strengthens the platform's green standing.      


GNU/Linux is the most power-efficient OS on Intel hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a keynote given at OSCON, Intel's PowerTOP application has 
| allowed developers to get a close-up view of what is sucking power in a 
| GNU/Linux system. Apparently they've gotten so much feedback and patches that 
| they've been able to extend battery life by an hour since the first release, 
| making GNU/Linux the best OS for power saving.    


Report: Linux, open source greener than Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| A new report from the U.K. Office of Government Commerce about Open
| Source Software Trials in Government, has found that servers running
| Linux could combat the rising problem of e-waste because they last
| up to twice as long as machines running Windows.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
