Topic: Cairo operating system


  
  Cairo Encyclopedia Article @ Assuredly.net   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Cairo is the mosques in the world (the 10th according to 2004 statistics).
Cairo is at least twice as old as List of churches in Cairo, 7 times as old as 3.7 Economy, and 15 times as old as 4 Cairo Problems.
The Cairo Geniza is an accumulation of almost 200,000 Jewish manuscripts that were found in the genizah of the Ben Ezra synagogue (built 882) of Fostat, Egypt (now Old Cairo), the Basatin cemetery east of Old Cairo, and a number of old documents that were bought in Cairo in the later 19th century.

 Cairo (operating system) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cairo was the code name for a project at Microsoft.
Cairo was announced at the 1991 Microsoft Professional Developers Conference by Jim Allchin.
It was demonstrated publicly (including a demo system for all attendees to use) at the 1993 Cairo/Win95 PDC.

 Cairo and Its Water
When building water system infrastructure, the role of the international donors is essential in terms of finance and technical know-how, but they need to have information about the local circumstances, too; e.g.
Cairo is one of the main industrial centers in Egypt: 50-64 per cent of industrial activity is mainly located to capital.
While most of the discharges to the sewage collection systems are from domestic sources, also industries in Cairo discharge 56 million m3 annually to the collection system, in many cases without pretreatment: only half of the industry had in 1992 some type of effluent treatment before discharging to the collection system.

 St. Allchin On The Road To Cairo
The key new piece of object technology in Cairo will be its Object File System-an extensible directory of all operating system objects that will function much like a database, permitting searches of object properties, such as the state of all color printers, and extending to documents.
The distributed file system expected in Cairo would seemingly need to be based on a new, distributed version of OLE that would let applications interact, whether they are on the same system-as occurs today-or on multiple Microsoft-based systems.
A long-term distributed computing goal for Cairo, says Gary Voth, SQL Server's group product manager, is to rely on a single "replication model for all of our products." Another is a single system of hierarchical storage on the network so that it doesn't matter where mail, user documents or other data are stored.

 New Windows could solve age-old puzzle | CNET News.com
Replacing its antiquated file system with modern database technology should also mean a more reliable Windows that's less likely to break and easier to fix when it does, said analysts and software developers familiar with the company's plans.
While the Cairo project eventually resulted in Microsoft's Windows 2000 operating system, the file system work was abandoned because of complexity, market forces and internal bickering.
The operating system is expected to debut in 1994.

 Fog clearing over Cairo | CNET News.com
Cairo was a code word for the next generation of Windows NT, a single upgrade of the operating system that each year was due about one year later.
With customers demanding the latest features as soon as possible, Cairo gradually evolved into a term for a set of technologies that would be rolled out over the course of months or years in separate NT upgrades.
Edwin Rutsch, president of the Bay Area Windows NT User Group says that the operating system is making "small, progressive improvements." First, Microsoft added a Windows 95-like user interface and then a Web interface.

 WinFS
WinFS is not a file system, but a file storage subsystem that will run ontop of the NTFS file system, indexing the content of the drive.
In 1992, its precursor was called the Object File System (OFS) and was planned to be a part of the Cairo operating system.
The system is loosely based on a combination of the next version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005, codenamed Yukon, and an underlying NTFS filesystem, and will provide access to data through both traditional file-based APIs and new object-based approaches that take advantage of the new features.

 LWN: The Cairo operating system
In short, you seem to be advocating that cairo drops a perfectly reasonable compile-time method for controlling which backends are installed, and goes to a runtime mechanism with some disadvantages for desktop applications, just because your distro doesn't provide a decent selection of packages without the backends you don't need.
Cairo is not like a new RSS aggregator that we can just delete from our computer, if we feel uncomortable with it.
If you never use anything other than the SVG backend for Cairo, the other backends and their associated libraries won't be used in memory at all, and disk is even cheaper than RAM (which you're happy to burn).

 GTK+ Goes Cairo; Owen Taylor on X/Cairo/GTK+ Integration - OSNews.com
GTK+ is now the first major toolkit to depend on the Cairo vector graphics library which is designed to provide high-quality display and print output.
Some might argue that Cairo should have been integrated to X instead (as an extension or as part of the core), so all toolkits would get the benefits, transparently (if enough engineering was to go into this).
Yes, there is some temporary pain (which build scripts like jhbuild [gnome-building script] can make a lot easier), but in the long run, these packages will get incorporated into operating system distributions and users won't have to worry about the number of individual packages someone building from source would have to download.

 Sudan Human Rights Organization   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The achievement of a just and lasting peace is a prerequisite for the realisation of women’s rights.  Strong women’s movements, operating within an empowered and vibrant civil society and a democratic political system, in a peaceful Sudan, will ensure that women can make the best progress towards the full realisation of their rights.
The achievement of peace should also entail democracy and a plural political system in which the rights of all are guaranteed as against the existing monolithic partisan system.
Sudanese women call for a political system in the country that will ensure that all are respected and the participation of all is guaranteed.

 From Chicago to Cairo
If you are going to put these systems out where the public is allowed to use it, there is always the smart alec that knows enough about computer systems to start twiddling with menu settings and resizing windows and maybe shutting the whole system down and starting up solitaire or something.
With an NT system, these features can all be locked out of the account that you give the public, but you can still retain access to them yourself when you need to do maintenance to the system.
My 486 NT system responds at about the rate of a Windows 3.1 system on a 386 16Mhz platform with 2MB of memory, and I can say that with some authority, because the first time I installed W3.1 on a computer, that was the configuration, and off it came.

At the time, the reason for the removal of NSS was because the HFS (Hierarchical Filing System) capabilities of Windows 2000 clashed with NSS - HFS worked at the whole file level, whereas the raison d'etre of NSS was to work at the sub-file level.
Cairo utilized distributed computing concepts to make information available instantly and seamlessly across a worldwide network of computers.

This is not an easy task because security is found in operating systems, in databases, in networks and in application software and all of these components constitute a single system ultimately.
Further, security should be considered throughout all phases of the systems development life cycle to ensure that software security is properly integrated into software, and not merely patched on at the end.

Building on NT, Cairo would have an object based file system, and would be the basis for distributed objects.
Eventually, Cairo became a "technology" rather than a "product", then disappeared altogether, with some half-finished portions working their way into Active Directory and exchange server, although Bill Gates' enthusiasm for making the file system the database remains unabashed.
It deals with appearance, not data exchange, and that he sees DesktopX as a Cairo which still needs an object based file system, or something resembling a layer on top of the file system that lets you locate information without digging into the file/directory tree.
