GTK+ Developers Call For Help To Finish Cross-Platform OpenGL Support

Tough Love Qt... (89 comments)

Need I point out that QT has had cross platform OpenGL support for many years? In QT, this is mature, reliable, well integrated and easy to use.

Your Incompetent Boss Is Making You Unhappy

Tough Love Re:Duh (203 comments)

Wow, +1 for the elegant analogy. You could extend that, and note that the incompetent boss is dead from the neck up.

Linux Foundation Comments On Microsoft's Increasing Love of Linux

Tough Love Re:Progress (162 comments)

...They have stopped trying to hold back change, because that outright failed....

No it didn't, you only have to look at Microsoft's balance sheet to know that. Microsoft will continue to do everything it possibility can to hold back change, for the simple reason that the status quo is that huge piles of profit continue to arrive every month for doing very little work. Microsoft will fight tooth and nail to maintain that status quo.

Linux Foundation Comments On Microsoft's Increasing Love of Linux

Tough Love Re:Microsoft's 1990's business plan. (162 comments)

...I think Microsoft has gotten knocked down hard and learned a little humility. They now have to compete on merit, rather than just leverage their IBM-gifted monopoly to squash any competition....

Wrongo, Microsoft still makes 100% of its vast windfall profits from leveraging its monopoly. Still a monpolist, still no need to compete on the merits. The only thorn in Microsoft's nose at the moment is its inability to force its way into new markets. Please do not misinterpret this slight retrenchment as any kind of personality transplant, which is the only thing that can possibly exorcise the evil that was and still is Microsoft.

Linux Foundation Comments On Microsoft's Increasing Love of Linux

Tough Love Re:Step one. (162 comments)

What I'd like from MS is an apology...

What I would like from MS is an apology and a big slurpy wet kiss on my asshole with plenty of suction. And then I still won't trust them, but at least my ass will be clean.

Ask Slashdot: Where Do You Stand on Daylight Saving Time?

Tough Love Re:Who cares if it makes sense,,, (613 comments)

We spent thousands of man years on making this shit work...

It doesn't work. It has never worked. It will never work. It is nothing less than one metric ton of pure unadulteraded idiocy, always has been and always will be.

NASA's HI-SEAS Project Results Suggests a Women-Only Mars Crew

Tough Love Please drop the other shoe (399 comments)

Restricting to females isn't going nearly far enough. It should be restricted to skinny little oriental females. Let's be honest. Ah, and one male should be sufficient for, um, long term planning... I hereby volunteer!

Soda Pop Damages Your Cells' Telomeres

Tough Love Re:Link to the study. (422 comments)

In Germany, EVERYBODY drinks carbonated water all the time, so this would spell doom on almost the whole population, hence i am a bit sceptical?

Notice that Germany lies well down the list of life exectancy by country.

Tesla Announces Dual Motors, 'Autopilot' For the Model S

Tough Love Re:Performance (283 comments)

1: A lot of ranch vehicles tend to go a long distance, but get parked near the same spot at night, so an electric charger is useful.

2: Trucks need torque at 0RPM. Electric motors deliver here in spades.

3: Welders and other tools are needed. Having a heavy duty inverter and the ability to use the battery bank for powering an air compressor would come quite handy.

4: Electric motors need a lot less upkeep than a diesel engine. No pee cans, no DPFs, no EGR valves, air filters, oil filters, just very minimal maintenance required.

5: They use no fuel when stopped/idling, other than to keep the vehicle electronics going and the climate control system.

6: They are quiet.

7: An electric motor can sit indefinitely without worry about fuel turning to sludge (in the case of gasoline) or getting algae in it (like diesel.)

8: No exhaust.

9: Wet dreams about the size of spotlight you can put on it

Ubisoft Claims CPU Specs a Limiting Factor In Assassin's Creed Unity On Consoles

Tough Love Crappy programming? (338 comments)

How do we know that the real issue isn't scripting silliness and otherwise inefficient code design? Not saying this is the case, just pointing out that the possibility is glossed over.

Fusion Reactor Concept Could Be Cheaper Than Coal

Tough Love Re:Wait... (315 comments)

I thought the biggest roadblock to adopting fusion energy was that it doesn't work?
