Every day I come to work, I get excited about the possibilities of the power of participation: to solve complex problems, to share knowledge, to bring people together. I believe together we can solve many of the most complex problems our world faces.
Part of my job is finding and testing open sourced solutions for already prominent commercially available software. The concept is simple: If it's open sourced, it can be customized, be platform independent, and it can be free. In the business world, this poses two key benefits.
Really I guess Linus doesn't see the Linux development model as being very unique in the open source world, even though it is. Or maybe Linus is a bit like the Douglas Adam character who considers his house the "outside of the insane asylum" and the rest of the world the "insane asylum" - we're all just crazy.
I’ve only been providing the community with problems i think should be solved, but not actually providing real solutions. With this article I will spread these solutions and make sure something is done about them.
Software engineering tends to be an evolutionary process. Problems are addressed with solutions that can create new problems and subsequently new solutions. Ideally, the new problems that are created justify the original solution. The technology discussed here is one of the secondary solutions to a problem created by server virtualization.
Robots can be about as complex a machine as you're ever likely to encounter, but roboticists spend a lot of time solving mundane problems that have already been solved countless times by other robot makers.
I have collected some common problems and solutions for Nvidia restricted drivers after Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) Upgrade.I really thank for those users and ubuntu forum members who posted the solutions.I hope this will be useful for some users to fix their problems.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office grants patents for vague ideas, obvious processes and usage models and even the most mundane software user interface conventions.
A true wizard doesn’t just run processes, a true wizard knows how to communicate with those processes through signals to stop, restart, and even kill processes. This may sound like arcane and obscure knowledge, but if you follow along, you’ll be managing your processes like an adept in no time.
