Kaitnieks Re:Constructive dismissal (242 comments)

Maybe the main thing the game companies look for in job interviews in candidates is fear of taking a legal action.

Can Ubuntu Save Online Banking?

Kaitnieks Re:Poor customers (462 comments)

Try Dell vostro 1500. It's personal experience. Although it might have been Ubuntu 8. Are you going to tell the banking customers "sorry, since you're too stupid to use linux, you can't use our bank"?

Can Ubuntu Save Online Banking?

Kaitnieks Poor customers (462 comments)

Too bad their network won't work because of missing drivers for wifi card as it usually happens on Ubuntu. Maybe the fact that internet won't work for customers is the ultimate security feature.

Old Operating Systems Never Die

Kaitnieks IS-DOS for ZX-Spectrum (875 comments)

I don't think anyone uses IS-DOS for real life tasks. IS-DOS was a somewhat weak DOS clone made as replacement for TR-DOS but it seriously suffered from the low resources of Speccy.

Apple Bans RSS Reader Due To Bad Word In Feed Link

Kaitnieks Re:This is why (254 comments)

I think they're both control-freaks. The difference is that stuff released by Microsoft is pretty open at first. Later they realize - oops, we should have implemented some kind of control mechanism. They try to add DRMs, genuine validations and loads of other shit with poor resluts. It's different with Apple because the first thing they write is the control, be it hardware or software, and only then they build a product around it.

Harsh Words From Google On Linux Development

Kaitnieks Re:Right (948 comments)

I think it might work, if w3c was doing that part (or some new division w3c+, which handles non-web stuff as well). I mean everybody in OS community is just obsessed with w3c standards and implementing them correctly so I seriously think it might work.

Kaitnieks Re:I'll Be Damned (504 comments)

Don't you dare calling me and disturbing my trail of thoughts with simple, non-urgent questions! I hate when people do that. Makes it impossible to work. Calling should be the last resort.

Second Android-Based Phone Announced

Kaitnieks Re:android compliance (204 comments)

Apparently Google doesn't care much. I talked to a guy from Google in some unconference and they think that market will force manufacturers to implement the whole spec but somehow I doubt that. I imagine nightmarish tracking activities for Android app developers to keep their "my application is compatible with following Android phones" list up to date once the new Android based models start rolling out massively.
