World, 2008-05-05.

We are close to dedicate 14 years to Linux business, and we want to dedicate another 10,000 years. Of course we want to help the community, based on our experience.

What means the Linux success? ... The answer is simple. Windows become obsolete and Linux is in over the 50% of Desktop systems. (This will be also complicated on the Office front, because Word is today, the de-facto Word Processor in the market).

I list here 10 obstacles to remove and where Linux companies may work [together]:
  • Real Sharing (Forget you are the best, or you are the winner).
This is incomplete task. While the release of Linux OS (like we call Personal) from Canonical is a success, releasing [K][X][E]Ubuntu, as well SuSE, Fedora and others, this does not means that they share the software take cost time and money.

A little example comes from our FTOSX. I spend some time adding the necessary lines of code to support our Combo Monitor: SGI 1600 SW Flat Panel + Number Nine 128-T2R, in the hdata. Well, I don't see that this code belong to any other distro. So, when the systems boot, few distro support really this hardware. Of course, there are thousand of these combinations.

Solution: All the software development, may be in 'svn'. So, if some programmer worldwide will add a line of code, this line will be shared ... worldwide and belong to any distro.
  • Design and adopt standards ... also for real life.
LSB is also a success, however not all the companies works and adopt it, or discuss. More programmers suppose a standard is tedious.

Linux need for example a free and good graphical installer, like install shield is under the commercial Software. What is funny, is that if you install Free Software for Windows, you will found graphical wizards ... but not for Linux. SeaMonkey and others offer graphical installers based on Java.

Solution: Standards for real life.
  • Remove the Ego, in any sense.
It sounds bad, when a Linux company said: "We are the best", "or remove our logo, because you have no authorization", or "offer a picture or the boxes that you will ship from orders you receive". All this is ego, that destroy and break the Linux development. No more wars between 'rpm' and 'Debian' based distro. This is the point.

Another obstacle is the 'Linux is the best lemma', where some programmers, does not want to use non-Linux OS, like Windows, the Mac, DOS, BeOS, or others. They reject the idea to sit and use a non-Linux OS. This is a bad ego and offensive for 'normal' people.
  • Still more simple
KDE and Linux had released really advanced and 'rock-solid' desktops. However, there are still a lot of share-marketing goals to accomplish. Linux is getting respect from Software Industry leaders like Adobe, Sun, SGI, IBM and others.

Basically, the grow is positive ... but is necessary that people understand that must work together, not challenge others.

Sincerely, I AM and remains yours,
Giovanni A. Orlando.

Sometimes you are working on Windows and want to watch an original DVD movie ... and ??! RealPlayer ask for additional software like Windows Player. What Windows Player 9, 11 ... or what? ... What disaster?! ... I want to watch my movie ... hear Mozart. How to do?

There are a new program, that is free and called 'vlc' that runs on Windows, Linux the MacOS capable to support any video format: from QuickTime to DVD movies, to MPG to MP4, etc.

It is simple and effective and is free software.

Suppose you want to investigate the DNA code ... Well also this is possible using Emboss and KDE, as well Kaptain a simple KDE program. Check this excellent article: http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/~sgmd/


... Suppose you want to solve the Galois Groups from

Il Nucleare è la soluzione più complicata ... PDF Print E-mail

Le persone intelligenti non cercano le soluzioni più complesse ed inutilmente complicate.

Il Nucleare non è la soluzione più adeguata ... per produrre Elettricità ... sotto quasi alcun punto di vista.

L'Elettricità può essere prodotta in moltissimi modi, molto più semplici e senza l'uso di tecnologie super complicate come il Nucleare.

I Solenoidi di Tesla (Nikola Tesla) possono produrre, ad esempio 250.000 Volts, 500.000 Volts e 1.500.000 Volts. ...

Il Solenoide sottostante produce 250.000 Volts è costa intorno ai 500 US$ ...

Pensate che nessuno possa costruire questo solenoide ... in Italia?

Of course with the publication of all these courses we are becoming a formal OnLine University.

We are listing here some planned courses:

  • English
  • Calculus (in one and several variables)
  • Classical or Sacred Geometry.
  • Classical or Newtonian-Galilean Mechanics
  • Number Theory (Here we will comment old solved problems as well actual open problems)
  • Differential Geometry.
  • Real Analysis.
  • Complex Analysis.
  • Differential Equations
  • Partial Differential Equations.
  • Quantum Mechanics
  • Elementary and Linear Algebra.
  • Galois Theory
  • Topology
  • Astronomy
  • Linux Basics (... to be included in FTLinuxCourse BASE)
  • Graphical Programming under Linux using C++, Qt and KDE ... all these courses will be published at FTLinuxCourse.com
  • Special Theory of Relativity and Gravitation
  • Electromagnetism (I want to call your attention here. We will not comment classical electromagnetism, because there are mistakes that several physics did, like for example Mr Lorentz when the Maxwell equations where re-gauged, discarding what offer energy to any circuit. So it is not the battery that offers electricity to the circuit, it is the an chemical reaction that moves the electricity from the vacuum to the circuit)
  • The Human DNA
  • The Electromagnetic Human Field.
  • ... and others.

Of course some of these courses require others and people can join from any level, including high-school students, that are our real deep inspiration.

For them we have just one propedeutical course: A Basic Course on Mathematics (Here the student will learn how to use mathematics in real daily life and basics).

We plan to offer a monthly price. So, you will be able to learn and access all the courses for a fixed prices. We are planning to offer the monthly fee for US$ 50.00 for worldwide customers (not-European) and Euro € 50,00 for European customers.

The external material ... like companion books will be included in Learning Kits, FTLearningKits ... and will for free download.

US English is the primary language, but we will support also Romance Language like Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese and French. Other languages will follow. 

A complete and detailed program will be published soon, including all courses.

FT Sales.

Would you to learn Russian in the path to learn Sciences? PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Tuesday, 22 July 2008 08:51

A old woman from Saudi Arabia tell me when I was a young, "Giovanni, ... each language you know, you will be another person". And that is true.

... Now, we can include English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Italian and up to Portuguese ... So, what about Russian?

Like probably you know from around 1963 when John F. Kennedy ruled United States the world stay close to a world war, between the Russian Empire and the United States of America. Then like you know, Mikhail Gorbachev invented the Perestroika, and communism remains in Cuba, and some other places where people does not generally uses their brains, like "Cuba" and others.

However, the Russian approach to Science ... is simply great. Not only they generally develop excellent books, but also translate others from other languages to Russian ...

Take a look on these:

  1. Diofant Aleksandrijskij. Arifmetika i kniga o mnogougol'nyx chislax (Nauka, 1974)(KA)(ru)(600dpi)(T)(328s)_M_.djvu
  2. Kartan A. E'lementarnaja teorija funkcij kompleksnyh peremennyh (ru)(T)(298s).djvu
  3. Smirnov V.I. Kurs vysshej matematiki, tom 2 (Nauka, 1974)(ru)(600dpi)(T)(656s).djvu (There are 4 Volumes, this is only Vol 2)
  4. Gel'fand I.M., Shilov G. Nekotorye voprosy teorii differencial'nyx uravnenij (Obobshchennye funkcii, vypusk 3)(Fizmatlit 1958)(ru)(L)(T)(140s).djvu or
  5. Perel'man JA.I. Zanimatel'naja fizika 1 (ru)(html).rar
  6. http://www.eknigu.com/lib/P_Physics/PG_General%20courses/Landau%20and%20Lifschitz/
  7. Lorentz G.A. Teorija e'lektronov i ee primenenie k javlenijam sveta (2e izd., GITTL, 1953)(150dpi)(ru)(T)(458s)_PE_.djvu

The first book is a free edition of the Diophantus of Alexandria, called "Aritmetica". The same book where reading by Pierre De Fermat, a mathematical French amateur, let him to stabilize the so called "Fermat Last Theorem", that is "The solution of the equation x^n + y^n = z^n, is impossible for n>2". The case n=2, is the Pythagorean Theorem. Do you will like to read in Russian?

The second book is the Russian translation from French of the Classical written by Henri Cartan. The title in English is: "Elementary Theory of Analytic Functions of One or Several Complex Variables" . The Original title in french is: "Théorie élémentaire des fonctions analytiques. D'une ou plusieurs variables complexes".

Henri Cartan is still alive, we wish him long life. He belong to the Bourbaki Group. I use this book in french in the italian degree in Mathematics.

The number 3 is the serie of books written by Smirnov in their original language. The 4 is new for me, a little bit old, but written by two great Russian mathematicians. The 5 is a classical. The original title is "Recreational Physics". I take it in my hands when Russian books arrive to Venezuela, and I stay in the University there. It is a shame that today, those efforts ... in some sense get stable. The Venezuelan country ... seems China under Mao, ... but really dirty and unusable.

The number 6 are a serie of all the Volumes written but Lev Davidovich Landau, in Russian and other languages. I have personally the first two volumes in Italian. The others I get from this Website in English, but there are all ... in Russian.

The 7 is another classical written by Prof. H. A. Lorentz. when he regauged symmetrically the Maxwell-Heaviside equations, missing and important component ... This is a real big problem I cannot comment here.

(This is the same Lorentz that create the transformation used by Albert Einstein in him theory. That Lorentz was a mathematician called Hendrik Antoon Lorentz.)

... Well, I plan to start to learn Russian for this and other purposes?

Do you want to join to us?
