Tracking Satellites with PREDICT
Development of PREDICT continues on an almost-daily basis after having been released as open-source software under the GNU General Public License last year. Through the development of PREDICT, the Linux operating system has clearly shown itself as being a superb platform for the design, development and implementation of applications relating to science, engineering and education. The free exchange of ideas, the open scrutiny of those ideas among peers, and the constructive feedback gained from such open discussions is not unlike the long-held traditions of the science and engineering fields. This environment will surely contribute to the continued success of Linux, not only in the fields of science and engineering, but in many other areas as well.
John A. Magliacane has been using Linux since 1.1.59. He holds an advanced class FCC amateur radio license (KD2BD) as well as a commercial FCC radio operator's license. His interests include satellite communication systems, Linux software development and hardware design. John may be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via the KITSAT-OSCAR-25 satellite.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
