top LLVM Clang Compiler Now C++11 Feature Complete
The standard library has the right to throw an exception if threading is not available and you try to create a thread. It actually happens like that on Linux if you forget to link to pthread. For the concurrent memory model it is just hardware specific.

top Gnome Founder Miguel de Icaza Moves To Mac
And it sleeps in a drawer.
I would put the fault on the fragmentation of packaging distributions like Fink, MacPorts, Homebrew, etc. Also videogames that supposedly work on Mac usually just do not even start because they are not compatible with the hardware.

Have you read that section?
Instead of combining all immigrants, or all foreign workers, this report will focus mainly on immigrants who first entered the United States as foreign students.
Makes more sense about the results.
top How Can Wikipedia's Visual Editor Top Other Word Processors?
I think LyX is the best. It needs clear sectionning. Forbid people to do stupid things just because THEY think it looks better. Etc. A word processor would actually completely mess up Wikipedia.
top Parents Not Liable For Their Son's Illegal Music Sharing, Says German Court
That court said the parents could have installed a firewall on their son's computer
For sure, all parents should be able to know how to configure multiple accounts with correct right management so that the other users cannot modify the firewall configuration, and configure a firewall to disallow all programs to connect to anything other then 127.0.0.1 except a white list. Oh and they have to find a way to disable websocket from the browser.
as well as a security program that would have made it possible to only allow the child to install software with the consent of his parents.
And of course a 13 years-old kid is not capable of cracking that kind of crap.
They could have also moved to China.
top Italian Supreme Court Accepts Mobile Phone-Tumor Link
In France in the 90s I remember that a judge decided to grant compensation to people who got multiple sclerosis who claimed that it was linked to hepatitis B vaccine. Of course the scientific community completely debunked that link. The only reason some people who got it after vaccination was that tons of people got that vaccination at the same time, so coincidences were very very likely to happen.
Anyway, it is good thing for "equality of chances". If you sucked at school, you can become a judge.

top Ask Slashdot: How To Fight Copyright Violations With DMCA?
I think he would have to do this if Turkey had compulsory license provision in its copyright laws for Youtube video. And I doubt that. So I would not send them a bill for licensing, which would allow the other to continue to use the video. A proposition of settlement for damages would be better. Though I do not know if I would agree on the approach.
