[2012] 25 Years of IBM’s OS/2: The Strange Days and Surprising Afterlife of a Legendary Operating System

On April 2, 1987, at twin press conferences in New York and Miami, IBM unveiled its plans to reinvent the PC industry, which it had jump-started less than six years earlier with the introduction of the first IBM PC. The company introduced four new computers dubbed the PS/2 line, including an $11,000 model that it said was seven times faster than current models. The new products were rife with advanced features, including 32-bit processors, fancy graphics, 3.5-in. hard-shell floppy-disk drives and optical storage.

And the new hardware was accompanied by a next-generation operating system, OS/2.

Les ressources académiques en ligne comme Sudoc, Biblio SHS, le catalogue général Bnf opale et les signets de la Bnf, sont de points de départ essentiels. Ces bases de données fournissent accès à des références académiques répertoriées par domaine scientifique et ainsi, facilitent à délimiter le sujet de recherche. Cependant, pour une recherche des références bibliographiques dans les domaines récents, transdisciplinaires et qui étudient les phénomènes technologiques ou informatiques à une vitesse d’évolution accelérée, comme l’Internet, il faut élargir ses ressources.

Le travail bibliographique a pour objectif de bien délimiter le sujet de recherche, souvent un peu vaste à son stade initial. Akinator, le génie du Web. Comment marche Akinator, le site qui lit dans vos pensées ? « Est-ce que votre personnage sort avec une brune ?

The need for clear data licenses

Users are more easily able to publish data through collaborative sites, or find and download data that they can use to remix, reapply, reuse, and extend. The trajectory of open data sharing and utilization parallels the development of open-source, where the potential magnified impact of open sharing and collaboration yields far great outcomes. However, unlike the open source world, the legal and cultural frameworks in which to share data have not yet emerged. In code, there are a gamut of well known and widely used licenses: GPL, BSD, MIT, Apache, and more. While each has unique characteristics, their overall meaning and implications are easily understood by developers and comply with business operations that wish to use open-source software.
