Tech Word of the Day - BogoMips

So here is one of the things I learned in my Linux class the other day.

To sum it up, it is "the number of million times per second a processor can do absolutely nothing".
Invented by Linus Torvalds in 1993

It seams that the higher the number, the more capable your CPU is to complete tasks. This number is calculated from a busy loop created by the Linux kernel when it has been booted up.

You can also look at this like potential energy of an object where the object has the potential energy to complete x amount of work but has not yet done so.

Just though I would share that small fact I learned yesterday.
