P = NP problem and the Valentine's Day Song

Here is a nice Song i found on the Net, which reminds us about the Famous Unsolved Mathematical Problem P = NP .

its a love story
of two strange people
who never knew they could
fall for each other
when they first met
they only ended up fighting
but slowy it became clear to them
that they sure shared something

a small problem happened
when pride overtook him
he thought she was
less smarter than him
she would solve a puzzle
and he would solve it again
he would tell her
that she was simply
an idea away from him...
he said that he always gets this idea
and then he does all that she can
and probably much more...

one day she decided
his behaviour had to be checked
she thought for a while and
then she said...
fine, then you sure
can do everything
but if you are strictly more smart
you have to do the following
think of some puzzle
that you can easily do
and then give it to me
to solve and lets see if
i can't do....

all the king's men and
all the king's horses
could not come up
with a puzzle like this
the duo got closer and
the world around more curious

today as it stands
the puzzle is still not found
and hence the duo
lives happily close bound
they two are well known
as simply, inseparable
P is the queen and
NP the king of our fable...

Hope you all enjoy it.......

This will extract the files into a folder  "hadoop-2.7.3" .

Step 3. I moved the file to /home/<username> folder (many suggest to move it into /usr/local but I prefer to keep it here, may be once I learn more about linux I might get into tha…
