Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"This all started a couple of weeks ago when I finally got
around to putting the tv capture card I had picked up a year or two
ago into my computer. Happily like most things in Linux, it just
worked, that was a great plus. Sadly the software packages in
existence that I ran across were either too much or too little,
nothing was just right.
"What I wanted was to be able to open up a window, tack it to
the desktop in always on top mode, and leave it in the corner
taking up some but not all of my screen real estate. I also wanted
the ability to pause it, so that I could get up, grab a cup of
coffee, hit the head, or what ever. Guess what, this falls into the
"good luck with that" category of having had someone scratch that
particular." coding itch.
