Wargaming will provide financial support for free software.


Additional resources for development will receive Linux, Django and Wikimedia

23 in May 2013 - Wargaming, a leading developer and publisher of online games, will provide funds for the development of organizations engaged in the development of open source software. Financial support will be received by the Linux Foundation, the Django Software Foundation and the Wikimedia Foundation, the solutions of which the company actively uses when creating its projects.

The company hopes that, in addition to supporting current developments, the allocated funds will help organizations work on new tools.

“Development of MMO-projects includes not only the games themselves. It is also an impressive server part, and a lot of web resources. With the first we are helped by the Linux Foundation solutions, in creating the second we rely on the development of Django and Wikimedia, says Maxim Melnikov, Solution Architect. “These organizations have done a great job on their products, and we will be happy to assist them in their further development.”

    Already two years "sit" on Linux. For example, I have "Dewdrop". And it sounds beautiful and works faster than small-soft windows .. And I don't understand people who haut Americans, but they themselves use Windows, replenishing the US budget ..

          For Linux, you do not have to pay money, which then goes into the American economy.
          Such a story was: I chose a laptop with a resolution of 900x1600 (for normal operation you need at least 800 points in height) without Windows, and when I came to buy them without Windows, I had to buy them with Windows, I repent I gave the money to the Americans. Although in MS, in my opinion, 50 percent of programmers are Russian.

      Dear Sashka, are you sure that in Russia they pay for Windows? In addition to snobs and noobs, NO ONE WINDOWS WINDOWS !!!! IMHO. Normal Windows-user uses Microsoft software FREE, which causes moral and material damage to our opponents. (that's just legalists sometimes scolded for this angry )

        Well, thanks, I always use licensed software, not because I am a snob or a noob, but because I had a crap with a pirated Windows, there is a license and there are no problems, it updates itself, it does not hang, beauty is in one word, if there are any errors then they are corrected and there is no need to climb torrents and look for a more stable version, besides, I respect the work of the developers (from whatever country they are) like-buy, don't like-don't buy, then you will throw out your computer all American, or not to pay try in the garage itself proce quarrels to collect laughing pirate laughing Who is to blame for the fact that our oligarchs, instead of creating factories and companies creating microelectronics, prefer to buy foreign football clubs. We would have long since created joint ventures with Intel or AMD and would have released something of their own on the territory of Russia while earning huge money, since our market is now the most developing and promising. Won on sale in MO can get rich. There is no entrepreneurial spirit in our people, 90% just want to work and not go anywhere, and 10% simply want to get rich quickly no matter how.

          Fresh news on innovation in Russia.

          The Russian company ITFY has opened a microelectronics development center on the IBM hardware and software platform.

          Leonid Svatkov, President of ITFY: “This project is really significant in the context of Russia's innovative development. For a relatively short time, we have completed a huge scope of work. We are very close to implementing our global plans and in the very near future we will be ready to enter the market with a full package of proposals. Already in the medium term, we expect approximately 500 customer-users. "

          “We think that with the help of this project we will be able to make the Russian microelectronics industry competitive in the world market in a couple of years. - Michael Wirth, head of the IBM Business Development Directorate in Russia and the CIS, is confident.

          And more
          Russian Scientific and Technical Center of thin-film technologies in the energy sector at the Physicotechnical Institute named after Ioffe published the results of monitoring of regional power plants operating on the basis of solar energy. A group of specialists studied the annual indicators of photovoltaic (solar) systems with a total power of 350 kW.

          The main objects of research were the largest solar installations in Russia with a remote monitoring system: a roofing system on the building of Anapa railway station (installed capacity 70 kW) and a diesel-solar power station in the Altai Republic (100 kW), supplied by the project company RUSNANO "Hevel" .

          According to the findings of scientists, the actual performance of most objects were higher by 20 – 40% of the predicted values. For example, the specific electricity generation of an installation in Anapa was 1336,34 kWh / kW, which corresponds to the performance of installations in Rome (Italy). In addition, the solar power station, located on the roof of the station in Anapa, in the daytime fully meet the needs of the station complex in electricity.

            Hmm, where are Skolkovo and Rosnano? hi From them, no project has not seen finished. The government needs grants to allocate domestic producers and strongly support it. The first one who will assemble a fully domestic computer that is not inferior in x-kam to Western models will get rich.

              The R-1000 microprocessor is designed for high-performance computing systems, single-board computers, wearable and embedded solutions, mainly by order of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. Passed state tests and recommended for serial production.

              Computers based on the R-1000 processor are used in computing centers of the Missile Attack Warning System, as well as in cryptographic equipment. They are produced in small batches of dozens of sets per month, part of the processors for cost reduction are made in Taiwan according to Russian documentation, but exclusively domestic products are used in computer complexes of the SPRN

      And the point is not even that "Dewdrop" is old, but that Linux fans live in some other universe. Well, who told you, sick people, what are we paying for Windows?

    Cost

    The cost (price) of Windows 7 starts at $ 200 (USD) for a new copy that can be installed on only one computer. Even updating Windows will cost you $ 120! Except for a few commercial distributions, Linux is completely free! You can download it for free, use it freely and update it for free! Even the few existing commercial distributions (Red Hat) you can usually install for less than half what Windows costs. You can install the same free copy of Linux on as many machines and as many times as you like, at no additional cost! This is one of the many reasons business communities and governments around the world are switching to Linux, and they typically save millions of dollars on it! MacOS is a relatively inexpensive system, but it will only work on Apple devices that sell for sky-high prices!

        Actually, this is up to 6 years in prison. Let's respect the laws of our state. I work as a system administrator and have been following this rule for several years: Use either legally purchased or free software.

          Nevermind, you have lawyers in Russia, up to two in Kazakhstan, and not for using left-handed software, but for assigning copyrights. And for a scorched Windu, a maximum fine of 20000 tenge and confiscation of the carrier. I never heard to be fined physical face, and businesses are fined for a sweet soul.

          I do not know a single friend who would pay for Windu. In Organizations - yes, there are equalizations there. But, excuse me, who will scan my computer? To get to him you need to go into the house, but Sorry, PRIVATE PROPERTY. Without a court decision, all the inspectors - NAH * Y!
          I don’t know, maybe it’s possible to somehow calculate by IP, but this is not a proof, without presenting the PC itself with the Pirate system. And the courts do not really bother with this.

      In 1998, he assembled the first computer and never used a license!

      And I will not and most will not! There are no problems either to make a pirate or to find it!

      The real experience of my friends, relatives and acquaintances shows an OS that is constantly updated, running under the "BEST" protection in the world, will last a maximum of a year (I repeat a YEAR maximum), it happened to fall in a month and no protection will help!

      As for Linux, it’s not a bad OS, but in the light of the above I don’t see for myself any reason to leave the OS that has built-in support for almost everything and which manufacturers of almost everything (from games to hardware) are oriented to on the OS, after which I’ll climb firewood to search! ?

      one of the many reasons why business communities and governments of different countries are switching to Linux, as a rule they save millions of dollars on this!

      And then they go back as soon as they realize the cost of maintaining specialists who will support and administer all this

      and people are sitting at computers to relax and work, and not always dig into the manuals, as there from @ *% rush about and do something in Linux


      MacOS is a relatively inexpensive system, but it will only work on Apple devices that sell for exorbitant prices!


      With direct grows it will work on almost any normal computer, but she is ... for an amateur

        If, after installing the OS, you are torn by the desire to rummage through its settings, spend a couple of hours looking for drivers and realizing that they did not find the required versions, spit (x "% with it tomorrow I will finish it) with a sense of accomplishment, leave to drink beer!

      making such a network is not difficult, the question is who will pay for it. Advertising cannot pay for everything and paid services on sites are not very popular with us. Here’s the question, what to do?
