Fedora 13 Could Be Segovia Or Commodus

,----[ Quote ]
| The list of name suggestions for Fedora 13 is 
| available on the Fedora Wiki. So far for 
| Fedora 13 we know that it will likely carry X 
| Server 1.8 support, NFSv4 support, greater 
| DisplayPort monitor recognition with the 
| open-source drivers, and other features. 



- From Fedora 11 to Ubuntu 9.10

,----[ Quote ]
| Bottom line: I don't think Ubuntu is really
| any better than Fedora. Setting up ANY Linux
| distro to navigate codecs and video/audio
| formats is a pain. But for both key distros
| (Ubuntu and Fedora), it's the sort of thing
| you mostly just do once. Call it a couple of
| hours -- but less than five minutes of
| typing. I kind of like the idea of the new
| Ubuntu One program -- free online storage
| that promises to sync across systems.

"out" and "in out"
Hi i found the following explaination: In Ada, "in" parameters are similar to C++ const parameters. They are effectively read-only within the scope of the called subprogram. Ada "in out" parameters have a reliable initial value (that passed in from the calling subprogram) and may be modified within the scope of the called procedure. Ada "out" parameters have no reliable initial value, but are expected to be assigned a value within the called procedure. What does "have no reliable initial value" mean when considering the "out" parameter? By c...
