  • Linux is used for parallel programming. this is so because it has in built support and libraries for creating parallel programs. moreover, it's a multi user real time system. so programming can be done more efficiently on it as compared to windows nt.

  • I have no problem with that. In fact data provided is good.
    But a more professional way would be to put the thread as comment and not as question.
    And he has done this in innumberable instances, not only in this thread.

  • hey sumit, i've responded in many threads with correct answers, and nobody has marked them as answer. moreover, there are lot of lobbies going on who are just running for points. i  can't work alone in these kind of situation. that's why, i've started questions and them giving them replies and marking them as answer.

    if you still want to check it, go and check my responses. also check the lobbies running here. i'm not a part of lobby. if you've any troubles, you are free to write anything and i don't give it a damn. the reason is simple, i also want to be there in the toppers. for these much time, i've kept my mouth shut, and by your this comment, i've responded you. and you can also give answers. if they seem to be correct, i'll mark them. i'm not like other members.

  • hey!
    I too feel that there's a lot of "lobbying" going around. Me, again in the same situation as you are. The idea is this kind of relentless posting-replying wont take you anywhere if your aim is to be a MS student partner. If you simply want to be among toppers and go for Xbox or Windows mobile phone then I think this will do.
    For MS student partner they people check for quality of your posts rather than the no. of posts.
    So, try to stay clear of these kind of practices. After all you seem to have some knowledge to show, help others in there problems and that will be fine :). Also, the no. of posts count, no. of answers doesn't(for Xbox and all).

    best of luck (Y)

  • hey sumit,

    i'm ready to share my knowledge, and am doing it. but many persons are not ready to understand the reasons, and that's why, i've started this kind of threads.

    have a look at all my threads. i'm giving answers to them. this is the way, i'm trying to move out of lobbies. also, like others, i've dreamt for ms partner, but for that, i'll use all ethical ways, and not the silly ways of lobbying and creating proxy accounts. i'm a pure technical guy, and trying to participate in all technical threads.

    and thanks for your wishes.

    regards,

    Sanket T. Shah.

  • dear friend this is not an answer to ur question, but the discussion is really serious in above threads, really i also fell that there should have been some ways to control points flow and activities in the forum, i personally feel that this forum is doing good to no-one except in somne cases, i too fell prey to the threads like this before which u discussed, i wrote about it the microsoft, but no satisfactory response was given, lets see if rockstar mgmnt takes some early action on this (which i probably think no).

    and I really tell both of U  guys "SUMIT_DAGAR & SANKET" that you ppl have realy responded to my queries seriously, my previou display_name was "mr. dexter"

  • hey kanav,

    just tell me whether you are with us in this anti-lobbying drive or not. i'm also seeking help from ms persons for this, because it really irritates me a lot.

    waiting for your reply and suggestions.

    Sunday, March 18, 2007 6:18 PM
  • Well count me in.. and if possible than we should change the thread name to "ANTI LOBBYING"

    I suggest that microsoft should disallow to mark the post of ones self as answer.. this way we can get some control over the posting done by the people over here... Also the best is to erase the system of marking as answer... best is to have some hidden mechanism to give points to the people... this way people will try to reply more rather than running the race to start a new thread... Also the administrator should start forums or threads... so that more people will reply over there....

    Monday, March 19, 2007 2:09 PM
  • so we all are the persons who are really against anti-lobbying. thanks to all of you for being with me.

    i don't know what all we can do, but the best thing is, we can try to keep those threads live that are really good.

    Monday, March 19, 2007 7:57 PM
  • Now lets get back to the topic of the thread.

    please tell me which os you will prefer for parallel programming. i'm using linux. do you any idea for windows ? i want to implement in multi-user real-time mode, using semaphores, shared memory and message queuing.

    Tuesday, March 20, 2007 4:49 AM
  • DEAR SANKET.T. SHAH i am with u ppl, let me tell u that i got response from admin about this cheating but the reply was not satisfactory, lets see may be later he responds to our problem seriously.

  • parallel programming was and is still used in the OS like UNIX / Linux, where a process is created for each user when he / she logs in. It is also used to create multiple processes from a single process in Linux (only an example).

  • The last idea about admin posting threads is nice one varun.

    Some people are simply pathetic with no sense of writing. The pointless posts of these not only pollutes the forum but also creates a feeling of being cheated of displaying one's talent. I sometimes feel dejected to leave this forum once and for all, but it is people like you and others above which always inspires to be connected.

    Hey! the point is keep having fun and helping and being helped by others... leave the rest to admin (if he ever reacts).

    Well i have still not studied about the parallel programming so dosen know much about it.. can you please explain what is a parallel programming and how is it different from regular programming...

    By what you have written i m able to make out that you are trying to make a program which will work effieciently on a dual core as 2 instructions can get executed at the same time.. so its like you are making something for a dual core on a single core.. but then parallel programming is there from ages and dual core was just recently released.. so where did they used the parallel programming before???
