Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade

Dogers Re:Or another interpretation (570 comments)

Hmm, it's a (admittedly small) jump to go from that to subscriptions though..

They have wanted to do it for ages now :(

Where is this? I can't find it on the couple of Ars articles and none of the other sites have said such a thing..

Ask Slashdot: Handling Patented IP In a Job Interview?

Dogers Re:You guessed it: It depends (224 comments)

For example, what happens if you build a system whose maintenance relies on continued use of that IP after you leave? Are they forced to abandon the system that you built for them as part of your job? Since you could (or should) have known about this in advance, your voluntary use of this IP could possibly- if not probably- be construed as some form of implicit offer and/or agreement. What if they then want to sell that system commercially? What if they *only* want to sell it commercially because it lets them use- and build upon- your IP on the same terms as a work for hire?

You sue them for not having a license!

That seems to be how things work in the big industry world..

Ask Slashdot: Practical Alternatives To Systemd?

Dogers Re:I've been toying with rolling my own distro (533 comments)

Does it have anything along the lines of yum verify (http://bencane.com/2013/12/23/yum-plugins-verifying-packages-and-configurations-with-yum-verify/) or yum history (http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/yum-history-command/)?

Genuine question! Last time I properly used FreeBSD I don't think pkg_add even existed? Have downloaded the 10-current ISO and will give it a try in a VM over the weekend..

Heartbleed Coder: Bug In OpenSSL Was an Honest Mistake

Dogers Re:Not malicious but not honest? (447 comments)

I know what you're saying, but to me if you're coding to a specification (even if he wrote it himself!) which says "if X then Y", surely you should create a test to ensure it meets the spec..?

Or okay, he didn't create the test, but perhaps someone else should have before integrating the patch. But yeah, hindsight, 20/20, etc :)

Dogers Re:Not malicious but not honest? (447 comments)

If the RFC says the request should be dropped if the length doesn't match, surely that would be a specifically required test case?
