screenshot of jDownloader running under Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04):
Short description (by myself):
- All-in-one open source file sharing downloader.
- Works on Linux, Windows and Mac using Java Virtual Machine.
- Works whether you have FREE or Premium file sharing account.
- What I like most: scheduling and sequential downloader, no need to enter captcha for Megaupload and resumable download for free account on Megaupload.
JDownloader is open source, platform independent and written completely in Java. It simplifies downloading files from One-Click-Hosters like Rapidshare.com or Megaupload.com - not only for users with a premium account but also for users who don't pay. It offers downloading in multiple paralell streams, captcha recognition, automatical file extraction and much more. Of course, JDownloader is absolutely free of charge. Additionally, many "link encryption" sites are supported - so you just paste the "encrypted" links and JD does the rest. JDownloader can import CCF, RSDF and the new DLC files.
- Platform Independent. (Windows, Linux, Mac, ..)
- Runs on Java 1.5 or higher
- Complete Open-Source (GPL)

Opera has recently announced a new software/service offering called Opera Unite. This is included in a beta version of the Opera 10 browser that you can download directly from the company's website. With Unite Opera plans to help you bring a piece of the cloud home with you, by allowing you to simple and almost effortlessly host content for public consumption, within your own computer.
Opera Unite will work as a platform, allowing new services to be added to the browser and thus adding new functionality for the end user. What interest this platform will stir up amongst developers is still too soon to tell.
While the concept is rather interesting whether or not the implementation will prove to be useful, or even usable, also remains to be seen. The main drawback to proposed approach is that while more and more people have permanent broadband connections to the Internet, even more people have notebook computers which they carry around all the time and which are thus unavailable to serve content on-line. This can, however, prove to be a powerful tool for people working in small distributed groups or that are part of tight communities such as college students.
My first contact with Unite has me interested but not yet overly optimistic about its usability. I will continue to follow the product's development, and even more importantly to follow what new services are added to this platform Opera is introducing.
What do you think of Opera Unite?

- Wimax is also similar to Wifi but Wifi covers small distance
- Wimax covers large distane
- Wimax does not conflict with wifi but actually complements it.
- WiMAX is short for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access
- IEEE name 802.16.WiMAX
- WiMAX could replace cable and DSL services, providing universal Internet access
- WiMAX could potentially erase the suburban and rural blackout areas that currently have no broadband Internet access
- System consist of two parts
- WiMAX tower can coverage a very large area — as big as 3,000 square miles.
- It can connect directly to the Internet using a high-bandwidth, wired connection.
- It can connect to another WiMAX tower using a line-of-sight, microwave link.
- The receiver and antenna could be a small box or PCMCIA card.
- They could be built into a laptop the way WiFi access is today.

Most of them not understand about difference between Linux and Microsoft
There are lots to say about the history of linux but it goes for a long so just have a look at of overview.
History of Linux
- In 1993 Linux was introduced by Linus Torvalds, a student in Finland. Who post to the comp.os.minix newsgroup with the words:
"Hello everybody out there using minix -
I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones."
- Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, chose Larry Ewing's design simply because he likes penguins. It is said that the name Tux was the winning entry in the 'Let's Name The Penguin While Linus Is Away Contest' with the 'T' standing for Torvalds and the 'U' and 'X' for Linux.
- Torvalds announced in 1996 that there would be a mascot for Linux, a penguin
- Alan Cox - Has made major contributions in coding the Linux Kernel.
- It is Open Source
- The largest part of the work on Linux is performed by the community: the thousands of programmers around the world that use Linux and send their suggested improvements to the maintainers.
- Then some of the organization came forward to improvize the standard of Linux and the first one is Red Hat Linux introduced on 1994
- KDE(K DESKTOP ENVIRONMENT) is started to be developed by Matthias Ettrich
- Now there are lots of organization like Fedora,Ubuntu,SUSE,Debi, released Linux by modifying little structure and adding new features

Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have created a model that can generate picture-perfect images of lunar eclipses. Professor Barbara Cutler assisted graduate student Theodore C. Yapo with configuring and combining models for sunlight, the solar system, and the different layers and effects of the Earth's atmosphere to simulate and render a visualization of a lunar eclipse. The tool can show how famous eclipses in history look, how future ones will look, and how they would appear to someone in New York, Rome, or from any other geographical location on Earth.
Cutler and Yapo say it is almost impossible to distinguish the computer-generated images of eclipses from actual photos. "Other researchers have rendered the night sky, the moon, and sunsets, but this is the first time anyone has rendered lunar eclipses," Cutler says. "Our models may help with investigations into historical atmospheric phenomena, and they could also be of interest to artists looking to add this special effect to their toolbox."
