Oh... You forgot the joke icon. That was what threw me.
If the omission of the joke icon was by design and appropriate for your intentions, I suggest you compare your internal definitions of Virtual Machine and Operating System with the ones that the rest of the world uses.
With all words of computerese, their meaning changes every five minutes (or every 200 blog revisions, where there are 2400 blogs), so just pick a definition of any word, and stick to it -- until some blog or book redefines it with a meaning that you prefer.
"Virtual" is one of the words that's had the most (and the most contradictory) meanings.
With Java, though, the whole "You can run any Java program on any machine on which Java is installed" is about as meaningful as "You can open any MS Word document on any machine on which MS Word is installed".
The biggest difference there is that you can write programs in .NET, within the MS Word about-as-much-of-a-VM-as-Java, so you don't have to get your hands and brain all dirty with Oracle products.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
We are about to receive our optical fiber connection and will go from a Vodafone Wireless Router (which is cr#p) and from a 800kb of download speed to a brand new optical fiber router at a great and symmetric 100mb!
The only drawback is: it has no WiFi so our cell phones and laptops won't be able to access our network...
I'm thinking on getting a couple of access points to allow any of those devices to access our network, and I was thinking on getting two Linksys N300 DUAL BAND WAP300N devices...
Our current router reaches half of the company, I would like to replace it for an access point and have another one placed in the other side of the company.
Any recommendation or something to consider? any preferred brand? I don't plan to spend a lot of money with them, but I would like to have a good performance and range.
Go read some articles. There are plenty of cracking ones here, and you could actually spend your time productively learning something new
Infinite Upvote!!! And now, a story...(for The Bored) I worked at a place where two devs fought to be the leader of the team for an entire year. While this was going on there was a re-org battle going on at the level above us.
These battles took more than a year to get resolved.
During that year I worked on one project which took 6 weeks and was shelved anyway.
During that year, I read tech books online. One day about 3 months into the dolldrums, one of the two devs fighting to be manager was entirely bored and watching an adult cartoon which I hate. Anyway, he came to me and said, "How do you stay sane?! I'm so bored!!"
Keep your mind busy and think about your own future.
It's your mother-in-law, you dimwit. Who do you think it was the Pope? You forgot that we're coming this weekend, didn't you? Now, turn off that computer thingie of yours. You'll be painting the whole house in a different color we picked from a catalog earlier with our daughter, you lazy bum.
