Killing Net Neutrality Could Be Good For You

andreicristianpetcu NO! (361 comments)

"priority bandwidth" does not mean faster bandwidth, it means slower for the others and the customers have no choice in this. Shut up and support net neutrality!

Sony Selling Off VAIO Computer Business

andreicristianpetcu Re:Sad news (204 comments)

Another company ruined by WIndows 8. Why don't computer manufacturers switch already to GNU/Linux distros? ElementaryOS, LinuxMint, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE. There are lots of choices.

Ask Slashdot: Best Laptops For Fans Of Pre-Retina MacBook Pro?

andreicristianpetcu Re:System 76 (477 comments)

I have a System76 Galago UltraPro and I got used to the clickpad in 2 weeks. I can even play FPS games on it without a mouse. It's really cool. It also has a right click button just like most desktop keyboards.

Ask Slashdot: Best Laptops For Fans Of Pre-Retina MacBook Pro?

andreicristianpetcu Re:System 76 (477 comments)

I have a System76 Galago and it's pretty cool. The keyboard has some issues but they created a new keyboard model and they are shipping them for free to any Galago owner. It's easy to replace too... just 4 screws.

Ask Slashdot: Best Laptops For Fans Of Pre-Retina MacBook Pro?

andreicristianpetcu System 76 for sure! (477 comments)

Yeah.... but System76 takes care of stuff like broken microphone drivers or bad keyboard. They take Clevo and put Ubuntu on it and make sure everything is ok. I have a System 76 Galago Ultra Pro with HDD AND SSD with a ArchLinux and Debian on it and it works great. I have a killer wireles board with open source wifi drivers. They keyboard was not that great but they are sending new ones to everybody who wants them. They developed a brand new keyboard model witch fixes the old keyboard issues. It's easy to change also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqIj1T-LKrc

FreeBSD Removes GCC From Default Base System

andreicristianpetcu Re:can it build the linux kernel? (333 comments)

BSD think of the freedom of the distributor, the GPL thinks of the freedom of the user. I see myself as a user, you see yourself as a proprietary distributor. BSD code helps build DRMed jails for Sony and Apple. I prefer a license that disallows this. I want to share my code with anyone in the world who does not to build proprietary stuff (for building new software). And share my software with anyone for usage, regardless of the purpose.

Apple is the bully who took your 3 lunch sandwiches, added ketchup to one of them and gave it back to you and made you say "thank you sir for the ketchup".

FreeBSD Removes GCC From Default Base System

andreicristianpetcu Re: can it build the linux kernel? (333 comments)

Chromium is free software. Google Chrome and Safari are not. If Google did not want to publish Chromium, it did not. The LGPL license is weak copyleft not strong copyleft.

FreeBSD Removes GCC From Default Base System

andreicristianpetcu Re:can it build the linux kernel? (333 comments)

They broke it of from the community. They made changes but they did not commit the diffs. This after huge pressure from KDE devs. I prefere to have my code eaten up by other GPL projects and remain free forever than get assimilated in Apple's pretty iShit.

FreeBSD Removes GCC From Default Base System

andreicristianpetcu Re:can it build the linux kernel? (333 comments)

Also, GPL code will always be ahead of weak copyleft code. Take Libre Office vs Open Office. Libre Office can take code from Open Office but OO can't take code form LO. Code that LO takes from OO will always be free.

andreicristianpetcu Re:can it build the linux kernel? (333 comments)

Why? The GPL code is the biggest technological common pool ever. I love the GNU project! The weak copyleft licenses are not a common pool. They are scattered projects from a legal point of view. Look what happened to khtml and kjs they helped build Safari which is proprietary.

GNUstep Kickstarter Campaign Launched

andreicristianpetcu Re:Shooting for 10.x? (131 comments)

I don't understand the project either. Why would I want to run OS X apps on GNU/Linux? Probably there are a few niches like Photoshop that might want to run them but seriously, how many cool apps are on OS X that NEEEEDDD to run on other OSes? I would like to see more money thrown ant Wine not on GNUStep.
