Google Wins $1.3 Million From Patent Troll

jd2112 Re: Judicial Order (35 comments)

There lies the problem. Many Linux distros have gone from being over configurable a few years ago to bring even more tightly locked down than Windows or MacOS. Often there is a way to change the behavior of the of the window manager but often the option is deeply hidden within the bowels of the configuration manager that you will never find it unless you know where to look, assuming it is there at all.

Munich Reverses Course, May Ditch Linux For Microsoft

jd2112 Re: Surprise? (579 comments)

Something is wrong with you.
