BeOS - The King of Recycling
With the current trend towards recycling, conservation, and "green" PCs -- BeOS has the ability to save tons of computers from the landfills. It's really just a matter of logic. What runs best on hardware from the early 90's? Well, an operating system from the early 90's of course!
"Really, it's just a matter of ignorance." Says Arnie McDougal, landfill coordinator for the Arizona Municipal Waste Department. "If software companies would only look at the Pentium I computers we get daily, they'd see the untapped marketplace just begging to be filled."
Let's look at some of the advantages BeOS offers:
* Optimized for 486 instruction codes
* Runs exclusively on legacy hardware
* Low memory footprint
* Tried and true applications, which haven't needed a patch in over a decade!
* Backwards compatibility with 386, and even 286 hardware
* Stylish 1990's color schemes
* Support for ISA expansion cards
BeOS is more than just an operating system. It's a choice. A choice for the future, and a choice for the environment. So the next time you're at the landfill looking for computers, dont' forget: Go Green! Go BeOS!

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 The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model.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
