It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Any question that can be so completely answered by a single wikipedia link is an indication that you need to work on your google-fu – voretaq7 Feb 8 '10 at 19:14
You've simply reposted a very vague and possibly subjective question that has been closed so at least 5 people thought it was not good enough to keep open. And you've made no attempt to do any research, even going so far as to openly acknowledge that you weren't willing to search for some enlightenment first. – Helvick Feb 8 '10 at 19:19
Wildchild, don't take the closed question personally. In your other question you admit to eschewing googling for the answer; that's not really acceptable on the SO-trilogy. You need to put forth some effort and then if you still have a question show the work you've done. I would recommend deleting your little ad hominem in this question, clean up your grammar, and move on with your life. – thepocketwade Feb 8 '10 at 19:20
From my perspective it looks like you don't really understand these things. That's cool, we all start somewhere. However, it also looks an awful lot like you're not making an effort to understand them, and that's not cool. Plus your questions are smelling quite strongly of homework, which in general we don't like - we're busy people, after all. This one is going to close soon, but - if you want to ask again - at least show that you're trying yourself instead of just looking for a canned answer. – Le Comte du Merde-fou Feb 8 '10 at 19:59
Just show us in the question that you've tried, and if it's homework admit it straight up (otherwise reconsider your wording) and all will be fine. – Le Comte du Merde-fou Feb 8 '10 at 20:22
