Former GM Product Czar: Tesla a "Fringe Brand"

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Tesla is worth 60% of GM ! (263 comments)

Actually, I believe they did get a government bailout. bail out by dept of energy

I believe they were about to go under and they got propped up by the DOE and the Obama Administration. They've already paid everything off and now they are of course doing a good job of keeping it going.

Former GM Product Czar: Tesla a "Fringe Brand"

Sri Ramkrishna Re: Yeah ... but ... it's true. (263 comments)

There are plenty of people who want to do the right thing they dont' all have to be treehuggers. And I commend some of them who have stopped logging and allowed us to use a more sustainable living. The fringe have their uses.

They'll do it too. The marketing guys tell me in Portland they are selling about 4-5 cars per marketing rep (at maybe 2 or 3 there) per week. (I think it was a week, could be a month) Teslas have become more and more common place in Portland.

GNOME 3.14 Released

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Good luck (248 comments)

I bet I could open it faster than fvwm or twm. GNOME 3.14 is even faster now than 3.12 when it comes to doing those overview searches.

GNOME 3.14 Released

Sri Ramkrishna Re:The hipsters need to go! (248 comments)

Most of the devs are still hte same people who made GNOME 2. There are no 'hipsters'. Let me add this little tidbit: SLED/SLES changed their default DE to GNOME. It's right there in the GNOME press release. You know why? Because more people are using GNOME than KDE. Here is something else, according to some folks within suse, opensuse also has more GNOME 3 users than other DEs, but they decided not to piss anybody off and didn't change the default. GNOME now has a full sweep of all the major distro except Ubuntu. Basically, people are finding that more poeple use GNOME than anything else on at least SLED/SLES and opensuse.

Debian Switching Back To GNOME As the Default Desktop

Sri Ramkrishna Re:How many of you are still using Gnome? (394 comments)

You're going to re-engineer your entire environment with a new distro because Debian changed the 'default' *back* to what it was 6 months ago? Why the hell would you create work for yourself? You know hating a project is one thing, but there is nothing in these install process that forces you to use GNOME.

Anyways, it is your work environment. But this mentality is pretty crappy. Your work environment should not be used as some kind of political statement to GNOME or Debian.

Debian Switching Back To GNOME As the Default Desktop

Sri Ramkrishna Re:Cinnamon (394 comments)

No, it uses all of GNOME's stack except for the shell. They originally forked gnome-shell and modified that and other parts of the GNOME stack. Now I think they have their own UI not based on GNOME shell. But the rest is still there. You can't create an entire DE with just GTK+. Even if it is just GTK+ it is still supported by the GNOME project since all the maintainers are all GNOME folks.

Uh.. you do realize that Cinnamon uses GNOME's codebase right? It's like wishing your upstream would go away so you would what? Take over development of everything instead?

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

Sri Ramkrishna Re:launchd (469 comments)

Yes, I know who Ted Tso is. I've met and argued with him plenty of times. He's conservative when it comes to operating systems and doesn't accept change that rapidly and tends to prefer an evolutionary path when it comes to system components. Systemd is radical to his tastes. He also customizes his operating system quite a bit as though some of the other kernel developers I know.

Fork of Systemd Leads To Lightweight Uselessd

Sri Ramkrishna Re:launchd (469 comments)

What's strange about it? Driverse and systemd run in two different contexts. systemd has no need to access the hardware at all. So having different rules for them shouldn't be out of the ordinary.
