Richard Stallman Answers Your Questions

Bander Re:Um... (394 comments)

Most liberals I know are against the war on drugs. It's really more of a conservative cause. Championed by Ronnie Reagan and his handler^U wife, supported by the for-profit prison industry (not run by liberals, I'm pretty sure), and so forth.

I'm not disputing your definition of political correctness, which I think is technically correct (the best kind of correct!). Just your example.

Doctorow: the Coming War On General-Purpose Computing

Bander Choices... (439 comments)

The popular success of iOS and other closed systems doesn't mean there aren't choices out there. I have an easily-unlocked and rooted Android phone, and I love it. Would my wife appreciate the command-line access and Python scripting facilities? Probably not -- she didn't even want a feature phone -- even an iPhone would be overkill for her use cases.

HTC just announced that going forward, all their phones will have unlocked bootloaders. Not everything is going closed.

In the case of Java, it's both.

Java: All the restrictions of a compiled language, plus the inconveniences of an interpreted one!

Oracle is welcome to contact me, my services as a slogan-writer are available and quite reasonably priced (by Oracle standards).

Chinese Govt Spyware Puts Computers At Risk

Bander What are you calling a "flaw"? (110 comments)

I hardly consider the lack of Mac or Linux versions a "flaw". In fact, I consider that one of the few positive aspects of the software.

I would mod you up... I signed up for the Foxmarks beta, waited for my e-mail, and now I'm happily using the beta. It does what it says on the tin. Thanks for the pointer!
