Vmware Server Console
The majority of Linux users have gotten used to keeping more than one operating system on their hard disks. Most frequently the second system is a version of Microsoft Windows needed for running some application WINE refuses to start. Constant switching is irritating. Fortunately there is another option. Virtualization technology allows us to run several systems on the same computer, at the same time. My examples are based on the Vmware Server Console v. 1.0.3 (distributed free of charge).

The beauty of LaTeX
Nice look at LaTex.
"There are several reasons why one should prefer LaTeX to a WYSIWYG word processor like Microsoft Word: portability, lightness, security are just a few of them (not to mention that LaTeX is free). There is still a further reason that definitely convinced me to abandon MS Word: you will never be able to produce professionally typeset and well-structured documents using most WYSIWYG word processors."
