With XP's End of Life, Munich Will Distribute Ubuntu CDs

Naosuke Re:Microsoft will pull back (426 comments)

Yeah! It's downright criminal that M$ won't continue to support an OS that came out before the Iraq war, or SARS, or the first US case of Mad Cow, or Gray Davis getting recalled, or Greenspan retiring from the fed, or Hurricane Katrina, or The release of three more operating systems from Microsoft.... Let's be reasonable. XP is four versions old at this point. It's time to put it out to pasture.

Naosuke Re:NatGeo channel's really gone downhill (305 comments)

Nat Geo used to have a show called Is it Real? that actually did some of this, and it was really interesting. Unfortunately they don't make new episodes of Is it Real anymore, it was great. They would usually have some proponent of whatever they were talking about that week (ghosts, UFOs, etc.) for the first 15 minutes or so, then would have actual scientists come in and explain why it probably wasn't for the next 30 minutes. I miss that show.

I also like how Minneapolis/St Paul was left out when it's a bigger metro area than Oklahoma City and Nashville combined.

WikiLeaks Calls For Assange To Step Down

Naosuke Re:And so it begins (565 comments)

And my point is that according to INTERPOL it isn't more broad then that. I will admit to not being able to read Swedish, or being a lawyer, but this is the first case that I have heard of where Sweden's rape laws would not be what most /. readers would consider rape. This seemed suspicious to me so I went to the best source I could find, and from what I have found the criminal charge or rape in Sweden is exactly what a /. reader would think it is. Julian may or may not have raped that woman, and I am going to wait for the criminal investigation to finish before I attempt judgement, but it is a BS argument to claim that these rape charges are less serious for being in Sweden as opposed to the US.

WikiLeaks Calls For Assange To Step Down

Naosuke Re:And so it begins (565 comments)

According to Interpol it is pretty much what I would consider rape. "Section 1 of the Swedish Penal Code 'A person who, by violence or threat involving or appearing to the threatened person as imminent danger, forces the latter to have sexual intercourse or to engage in a comparable sexual act, shall be sentenced for rape to imprisonment for at least two and at most six years. Rendering the person unconscious or otherwise placing the person in a similarly helpless state shall be regarded as equivalent to violence.'" Unless people consider rape to be something other than non-consensual sex, in which case I admit to being wrong, and I am kind of curious to see what you consider rape to be.
