I'm the Fedora Cloud Architect at Red Hat.

I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong.

comment Can linux deal with ultra high resolution displays?
@goldilocks Yes; I haven't been following Windows very closely, but I assume that's also what's meant by "Samsung declared that only Windows 8.1 will be able to deal with this ultra high resolution."

@IgnacioVazquez-Abrams Even on Linux, many programs don't handle that very well, in the worst case scaling some elements and not others. Larger fonts help readability, but buttons and other things you might need to click can be left as comically tiny.

comment Is there a convenient small Unix virtual machine I can install as an Android app?
Can you be more specific about where on sourceforge it can be found? That's a big site.

comment Change name of em1 to eth0 in Fedora 19?
That other question shouldn't have been marked as a duplicate of a RHEL 5.5 question. It still doesn't have a proper answer, but is really the same question as this one.

Fedora 19 is significantly different from RHEL 5.5 as in the question this was marked a duplicate of, and the answer isn't the same.

comment What part of the Linux kernel determines the execution order of userland apps?
Do you mean at boot time, or do you mean what decides what will execute on a single processor when multiple processes all want to run at once?
