The diff utility was developed in the early 1970s on the Unix operating system. diff will output the parts of the files where they are different.
Command-line lovers, allow me to introduce you to Xiki, the incredibly interactive, flexible, and revolutionary command shell. I do not use the word "revolutionary" lightly. The command shell has not advanced all that much since the ancient days of Unix. Xiki is a giant leap forward. If you're looking for the Next Big Thing in FOSS, Xiki is it.

Needless to say that setting up Light Weight X environment on Fedora 20 cloud instances is very important for comfortable work in VM's environment, for instance on Ubuntu Trusty cloud server just one command installs E17 environment `apt-get install xorg e17 firefox`. By some reasons E17 was dropped from official F20 repos and maybe functional only via previous MATE Desktop setup on VM
There are two major MySQL storage engines used: MyISAM and Innodb. MyISAM is non-transactional, and thus can be faster for reads, while InnoDB fully supports transactions (e.g., commit/rollback) with finer-grain locking. When you create a new MySQL table, you choose its type (i.e., storage engine). Without any choice, you will simply use a pre-configured default engine.

The latter, which is built around the Cortex-A8 based Sitara AM335x SoC from Texas Instruments, is now being extended with a Pico-ITX form-factor PhyBoard-AM335x carrier board, the first of a coming line of PhyBoard products.
Scheduling means different things depending on the audience. To many in the business world, scheduling is synonymous with workflow management.

A moving memorial to Internet whiz kid Aaron Swartz, "The Internet's Own Boy" may be the most emotionally devastating movie ever made about hacking and freedom of information. Documentarian Brian Knappenberger creates a spellbinding portrait of Swartz's life and political convictions — the promise of which was cut short by his suicide in early 2013 at the age of 26 — while posing powerful intellectual arguments about failures in the U.S. justice system, especially when it comes to the World Wide Web. Since Swartz has already been canonized online, there's likely a substantial audience ready and waiting for a well-crafted tribute documentary. The more salient question in the age of Internet piracy may be whether they're willing to pay to watch it.

If Ubuntu Linux is to prove truly competitive in the OpenStack cloud and Big Data worlds, it needs to run on more than x86 hardware. And that's what Canonical achieved this month, with the announcement of full support for IBM POWER8 machines on Ubuntu Cloud and Ubuntu Server.
This week, we look at Werner Vogels from AWS talking cloud security, the CIA info chief explaining why they're going cloud and could Linux container technology be a greener way of cloud computing.
In a large open source project made up of lots of interacting pieces developed by different teams, how do you decide what officially becomes a part of the core release and what stays outside?
