Canada Poised To Buy 65 Lockheed Martin F-35 JSFs

johnnnyboy Re:REALLY STUPID Canada (417 comments)

A lot of us Canadians agree.
The choice to keep it is purely political and I think we're locked in (trapped) after spending billions already. The billions spent already could have gotten us super hornets now and they would be already in service if we bought them. Why couldn't our prime minister just accept defeat on this issue?

The Superhornet is a much better sensible choice, it's more practical, cheaper and doesn't require much "retraining" of the staff. Already familiar with the aircraft.
It also meets more the the requirements than the F-35 does.

Ubuntu Moves To Yahoo For Default Firefox Search

johnnnyboy Re:Worse (370 comments)

Can I ask you how do you expect Ubuntu to make money?
You think all of this is free and with no cost?
I see this as a good thing. More revenue for Canonical will mean better Ubuntu releases in the future.

Widenius Warns Against MySQL Falling Into Oracle's Hands

johnnnyboy MySQL Founders please stop whining (278 comments)

Seriously, these MySQL founders have been whining ever since they sold out to Sun.
Please stop. If you're worried about MySQL why did you sell the rights in the first place?

GNOME Developer Suggests Split From GNU Project

johnnnyboy Why not just use Qt for Gnome 3.0? KDE != Qt (587 comments)

All the old complaints about Qt are no longer valid. I find it ironic that Gnome is getting more and more Mono/.NET dependant when Gnome project was started for way less than that, because Qt wasn't GPLd. But now it is.

We have an advanced GPLd toolkit widely available and it can do more than just GUIs.
I would really love to see what the Gnome project can do with Qt along with their interface philosophy of simplicity.

KDE != Qt it's just one implementation of Qt.

Toshiba To OEM Laptops With OpenSolaris

johnnnyboy How about flawless suspend or hybernation? (226 comments)

Really, I personally think OpenSolaris is coming along quite nicely since Ian Murdock is managing things but that's a different comment.

If they can make a toshiba laptop suspend and hybernate flawlessly that would be awesome. Maybe I'll even make the switch. Unix is Unix.

Canada Blocks Sale of Space Tech Company To US

johnnnyboy Re:Net benefit? (230 comments)

Where can I vote for that? I mean, really. I think a US runned Quebec state will definitely help me.

Will the ROC will finally defined their citizens that have their rights taken away? I mean simple human rights such as freedom of speech? In my opinion the rest of canada can just kiss my . The ROC don't even care about their own.

Some of us actually tough it out in this racist province. In Quebec, you are NOT allowed to speak english in the work place and you are NOT allowed to write an email anything other than french either to your colleagues. I can't have an english keyboard either and it's very hard to find a job because my last name is not Dion or Desjardins or GrosPlat.

I'm voting for a Pauline Marois runned Quebec just so they can be one step closer to hell.
