    Yeah, whoever Photoshopped that picture did a rubbish job with the feet. :)

    They are Alterran feet, so it's to be expected.

    What is dead may never die: a new version of OS/2 just arrived.

    At least OS/3 by now Shirley

    Interesting divide-and-conquer approach, that.

    Probably not suitable for a wide range of problems, however. I suspect that the most common way of dealing with extremely large data sets has been the same for the last 50 years--"throw most of it away".

    Yup, and/or Monte Carlo it and hope to get lucky!

    OS/2 isn't dead. It just smells that way.

    Mostly just a shuffling of licensors. It's still basically Warp 4 (as sold as eComstation) under the tinfoil.

    Used to be that most bank ATMs ran OS/2, so there's probably still a market out there. The good thing is that if you're a purveyor of malware, OS/2 represents an infinitesimally small segment of the market; so a nearly invisible target.

    Fun stuff. Progress since the nineties, but still it seems photonics will be ancillary to electronic computing. To make real logic gates you need large (compared to transistors) nonlinear integrated optical devices. The diffraction based computation they suggest only handles linear operations like the Fourier transform, AFAIK. But for hauling data, modern hundreds of channels integrated optics ROADMs look pretty impressive. I'm curious about this superduper optical memory they mention.
