Monday, February 18 2008 @ 04:58 PM EST
Contributed by: sde

One distinction between the genders, allegedly, is the ability to multitask. Now, depending on who you speak to either women possess this or men do but I’m not bold enough to join that debate. What I can tell you, however, is that Linux definitely does. And, in fact, many systems may not be taking full advantage of it. Here’s why.

Using longer mnemonic options common in other Linux commands might have made things easier. Anyway, let's get to the meat of the matter.
