RKWard - Advanced Free Statistical Data Analysis Tool

,----[ Quote ]
| RKWard is a graphical user interface to R, with the objective to provide a
| user friendly statistical analysis tool with advanced graphics capabilities
| for documentation and publications. Through RKWard the user has access to all
| of R's functions. When starting up the software lists recent projects and
| data.


Open Source 3D Landscape Generators

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently noticed two free 3D landscape generators and thought to myself: "I
| bet there are dozens of never-finish terrain generators for games and vr
| apps!" I was wrong. In this article, I will introduce the handful of floss
| scenery generators and editors that I was able to find.


Scientists vote for GNU/Linux.


Shazam! Oak Ridge Supercomputer Now World's Fastest For Open Science

,----[ Quote ]
| Each node runs Cray's version of the SuSE Linux operating system, and Cray
| has tuned the Linux kernel so that it removes unnecessary services from the
| compute nodes. This means that the operating system minimizes interruptions
| to the application codes running on the system. The SuSE Linux operating
| system on the nodes combines with the system services, networking software,
| communications, I/O and mathematical libraries, as well as compilers,
| debuggers and performance tools to form the Cray Linux Environment.



Linux still super in Top500

,----[ Quote ]
| In the June 2008 Top500 list, Linux still lives large with a role in 92% of
| systems (It is the only OS for 85.4%, but when considering all distributions
| (SUSE, Red Hat, CentOS, and general inux,as well as mixed uses that
| include Linux, I figure the share is more like the 92%).


World's biggest computing grid launched

,----[ Quote ]
| The world largest computing grid is ready to tackle mankind biggest data
| challenge from the earth most powerful accelerator. Today, three weeks
| after the first particle beams were injected into the Large Hadron Collider
| (LHC), the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid combines the power of more than 140
| computer centers from 33 countries to analyze and manage more than 15 million
| gigabytes of LHC data every year.

Computer viruses in space!!

| Maybe they should run Mac or Linux. Then they would have nothing to worry
| about at all, right?


NASA Uses Ubuntu

| He and I walked back over behind the guy to look. I pointed out the little
| bit of the heron you could see at the bottom of the screen, and he said "yep,
