One Week: No Mouse, Just Keyboard

Andrei D Re:Too extreme (364 comments)

To put it another way, the mouse is a device you can use to point to a virtual terminal in which you wish to type.

Internet Explorer Antitrust Case Set To Expire

Andrei D Re:Expired and stagnant. (176 comments)

I still remember that, in my early days as a Linux user (circa 2000), I had a relatively decent machine. I was using Red Hat 6.2 with XFree86 and Window Maker at the time. Netscape was indeed slow, so I clocked it to see how long it takes to start (display the home page): 51 fucking seconds.

Pakistan Court Orders Facebook Ban Over Mohammed Images

Andrei D Re:Seems reasonable (949 comments)

After all, I don't know how much value have rational reasonings to someone who believes in sky pixies.

Well, it's really not that hard to find. You can start by checking these freaks on Wikipedia: Renee Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Thomas Aquinas, Henri Bergson, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, etc.

Supermarket bans Jedi Knight

Andrei D Re:Jediism, a.k.a. $CIENTOLOGY..... (169 comments)

You only prove that you are completely clueless. No matter what you think about Christianity, comparing Jesus to this Jedi clown or Joseph Smith is just plain stupid. Try to spend less time on Slashdot and read some books. Maybe something written by C.S. Lewis or G.K. Chesterton. Like you, they were also firm atheists, but they managed to use their brains and understand their errors. Get smart, will you?

A Screenshot Review of KDE 4

Andrei D Re:Why is KDE still not the mainstream? (274 comments)

I see KDE as a very good, highly configurable and modern desktop environment but still wonder why it is not yet the desktop environment of choice for the "major" distros. Why?
I think one of the top reasons is that some distros appreciate that Gnome has a stable release cycle. As I understand, KDE will follow this model as well (releasing a stable version regularly) so hopefully more distros will include it by default. We'll wait and see.
