After looking at that, my brain hurts.

I don't really even know what exactly it is that I am looking at, but I am fascinated nonetheless.

It's a giant flow chart of every piece of the Linux kernel. The lines drawn in the smallest cubes tell you something about the code inside them (I'm guessing they break by code section to points, and the length of lines is based on how much of it there is)

The text next to the cube tells you what function(s) are being implemented.

And yet Linux geeks call Windows bloatware?

It's a simple kernel map. If you were to look at the kernel map of Windows, it would something like a black widow's web.

If you want to see what it would look like with boxes:

I wonder what a similar picture for Windows would look like?
Hmmm...

Here is the NT architecture:

The problem is that Windows is a mess of APIs and freaky crap that is built into the "Executive" that shouldn't be.

Hey boot20, I looked into Cedega some more, especially the games database, and most of the game I play aren't supported right now. I did get an Ubuntu live distro, so I'll be playing with that, and I'll be on the lookout for good games that work in Linux, but in the meantime I'll have to keep my Windows. Oh well, someday...

There's this thing on teh internets called a hyperlink

occasionalcontributer: Cool. What games are you wanting to play? The wiki sometimes has workaround.

Some good native games in Linux:
Doom3
Return to Castle Wolfenstien: Enemy Territory (free)
Neverwinter Nights
Privateer Gemini Gold (http://priv.solsector.net/ and free)
America's Army
Parsec

Have fun ;-)

Thus, the microkernel argument.


/mkLinux on my power mac 7200 was slow as a dog on the fog under a log.

That looks like the Access relationship map on one of the apps I maintain. I want to kill the original developer.

Of course, all of us hipsters know what the Mac OS looks like. Very shiny. Very smooth. and .... my God! It's full of stars!

/xp is the work-horse shiaznet!
/has to use a Mac at work. hates it

Yes boys and girls. Software is complicated. That's why we have machines to read it for us.

if you looking for a good game to run in linux check out www.wurmonline.com basically a civilization mmorpg. You have to make EVERYTHING to survive and gain skills in each area respectivly. Its based on a 16x16 km map of widlerness and is coded entirely in java. Most people form towns that they build from the ground up. Steep learning curve but very satisfying for some people.
