Ask Slashdot: Why Can't Google Block Spam In Gmail?
I have real false positive about once a year. I think gmail filters try to differentiate spam from your legit mails. If your usual legit mails looks like spam, it has more difficulties to identify spam ;-)
Interviews: Ask Florian Mueller About Software Patents and Copyrights
My son is not named Florian because of him: I did not want my son to have the same name as this disgusting guy. All the media were repeating his stupid "analysis" on oracle vs google case. In the end, he was completely wrong on every points. I do not understand how people can give him any credibility. Is it possible on slashdot to blacklist any article that contain his name ?

To Really Cut Emissions, We Need Electric Buses, Not Just Electric Cars
I think solar is the energy of the future and that hydrogen may be a good storage for car. But solar efficiency needs to be improved at least ten fold before is can compete with nuclear.
Is It Time To Split Linux Distros In Two?
I fully a agree. My main computer in on linux since many years. It is used as a normal desktop: browser, mail, office, scanner, printer and sometimes for development. I would like to be able to customize my development environment as if it was an independant virtual machine, but with the full power of my computer.

Should Nuclear and Renewable Energy Supporters Stop Fighting?
Nuclear is inflexible. I think nuclear plant should produce hydrogen during low load period and that cars should run on hydrogen. In Germany, they have stopped using nuclear, the result is more pollution caused by coal. Il think nuclear is the less bad solution until solar solutions are developed.
Oracle Broadens Legal Fight Against Third-party Solaris Support Providers
It looks as if oracle is doing its best to make developers hate them. The problem is that developers of today often become decision makers of tomorrow. Oracle misbehaved about mysql, about java (very bad handling of security issues), about opensource software (open office, open solaris and java) and now even about solaris. I do not know if there are really short term benefits, but I think it is a long term suicide.

Hawaii Desktop Stable Released, Powered By Qt 5.2 & Wayland
As a real people who uses X every days, I can ensure you I have no idea where are the computers that runs the programs that are clients of my display. In fact most of these computers are virtual machines. network transparency has been the first feature of X since many years and the third main Windows program (after Word and putty) I use has been hummingbird exceed, or Xming or reflection X.

Toyota Announces Plans For Fuel Cell Car By 2015
Electrolysis is not the more efficient, but hydrogen production by electrolysis is probably the more effective way to store electricity.
Nuclear plants have often excedents of electricity that they burn in resistors in order to avoid overloading the grid. If they could generate hydrogen instead of wasting energy, their efficiency would improve. IMHO nuclear remains the cleaner energy (less harm to our planet) and the safer (http://nextbigfuture.com/2008/03/deaths-per-twh-for-all-energy-sources.html). I think that nuclear and hydrogen should have a good synergy.
With XP's End of Life, Munich Will Distribute Ubuntu CDs
Upgrading a system to install windows 8 instead of windows XP is very difficult for unqualified people and will require almost the same installation time than Ubuntu and will probably have more driver issues than ubuntu (ubuntu works better on old hardware than recent windows).
I must admit that it is difficult to find qualified people on ubuntu.

Can a Japanese AI Get Into University?
I have already teached math to pupils of 17yo. The most classical theme was the study of a function, but in most of the subjects, the questions are badly phrased and disturbing. My strategy was to teach them how to study a function with only the function as input (without the questions). And when they have understood how to do this, study the different wording of questions and how thy match what they have already understood.
In mathematics, I think the program should first understand the equations, then try to understand the text.
