Need For Speed
I am not sure why anyone would want to change the speed limit, but we should just leave things as they are and get police to enforce the current law; ensuring that drivers respect the speed. Making the speed limits faster will simply allow those who break the law go faster. Also, if they are too slow, get off the highway. We should also get our politicians to build more roads like the 407 to ease traffic. If there are people who want to pay let them pay.
Note: I do not even think drivers know that trucks are limited to 100 KM. If you cut off a truck and they hit you, guess who walks away.

Need for Speed in Toronto
Speed limits on Ontario’s highways are too low, according to an Oshawa-based group. Stop100.ca is calling on the provincial government to boost existing maximum limits from the current 100 km/h by as much as 30 km/h.

Puppy, with a download as skimpy as 28MB, is well suited to older computers, thin workstations, and diskless PCs. This article looks at the value of Puppy Linux on normal PCs, and reviews its features, flexibility, capability to peacefully coexist with Windows, ease of use, and limitations.
With hundreds of Linux distributions available, how do you determine which one is right for you?
Start by listing your needs. What will you use it for? Which features are important? How would you prioritize them? Which features don’t you care about?
Once you’ve developed your “user profile,” measure it against the strengths of different Linux distributions. Linux is configurable and gives you the full control you expect from open source software — so theoretically you could probably tailor (or strong-arm) almost any Linux distro into meeting your needs. But with hundreds of distributions to choose from, it makes more sense to select the most suitable Linux distro for your requirements.
Puppy Linux is one of the twenty most popular Linuxes worldwide, according to the distro-tracking website Distrowatch. Puppy’s distinct personality makes it of interest to those who want a Linux that…
* Includes all the applications required for daily use
* Works right out of the box
* Is easy to use, even for Linux newbies and Windows refugees
* Runs fast and performs well — especially on limited hardware
* Runs on old computers, thin clients, and diskless workstations
* Installs and boots from any bootable device, including USB memory sticks, hard disks, Zip drives, LS 120/240 SuperDisks, CDs and DVDs, rewritable CDs and DVDs, and network interfaces
Unlike most Linux distributions, Puppy is not based on some other distro. It was created from scratch to meet these goals.
