Samsung EX1 compact camera

Kevin Aquilina

F1.8? So 10 years ago!

10 years ago my Olympus Camedia 3040Z 3.3MP compact had (well, still has) a 1.8 lens so Samsung's claim for fastest lens on a compact is false. I'm not bashing the Samsung cam but apart from the pixel count and better shutter delays today's cameras are offering nothing new it seems.

Tocco is.....

Italian for "I touch" so maybe its not such a bad choice for a touch-phone name after all.

Linux-guru's conviction fuels ReiserFS debate

Not only the file systems are affected

I remember once I had a problem with a Raid controller driver. I tried to contact the author and unfortunately he had died in a helicopter crash. Help was not forthcoming from anywhere, not even from the OS vendor with whom we had a maintenance agreement. So for me, these particular raid controllers died with the author (In the case of Linux).

What this means is that if you rely on community support and it is not available after the author's gone, you're in trouble. At least I understand that this shouldn't happen in commercial s/w. If the author of some software leaves a company, he is replaced and support continues. It's not always the case with Open Source, much as I've come to depend on and love it. :(
