A New "Medical Lab On a Chip" For Every Home?

VagaStorm Re:Why bother with assays (56 comments)

On the other hand, when your hit by a car, geting a blood sample is quite easy.

On a more sereous note, this might be a cushin, if relied to blindly on, since the home test probably wount be as extensive as the one a doctor makes.

Why Linux Is Not Yet Ready For the Desktop

VagaStorm Re:Wow.... (1365 comments)

I'm a regular linux user, and there are flaws in the article.... I don't think I need cli for anything in OpenSuse. Apache and ftp even have proper working gui configuration tools in yast and I don't think I know what of my software I can obtain the source for, so why dos it matter if the needed software is opensource if it runs on linux. The major linux I still have windows a round, other than testing it when a new version comes out, to see how it works now, is games.... Sadly, there's not enough games(good ones, installing kde4-games dos not count )....

Options For a Laptop With a Broken Screen?

VagaStorm Re:Braille Quake (544 comments)

Yes, a media center of sorts was my first thought to. A laptop is relativly silent and better looking than most desktops, which raises the faf(female acceptance factor) considerably.

College Police Think Using Linux Is Suspicious Behavior

VagaStorm Re:sure it is (1079 comments)

If the manager is allowed a filthy kitchen, it would take away your freedom to eat without worrying what you will catch this time. Same goes for all your examples. I think thats more about prioritizing freedom rather than sacrificing it.
