Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

juanfgs Re:So What? (645 comments)

Well, I'm not here to discuss theology. Just the truth about what the doctrine has said. I'm an agnostic myself.

What I can assure is that this pope is a skilled politician, and he'll probably get the best reputation since John Paul II . He called the vote on gay marriage because he knew it wouldn't pass, but "hey, it's not my fault, I TRIED!". And several other acts like acting "humble" by choosing the cheapest luxuries in his life.

Pope Francis Declares Evolution and Big Bang Theory Are Right

juanfgs So What? (645 comments)

Catholicism has taught that the evolution and big bang theory are right in sunday school for ages now and that the genesis is symbolic. At least that's what I was taught when I was a kid.

Quake Meets Minecraft in FPS Construction Kit Gunscape

juanfgs Re:Sauerbraten (50 comments)

Graphics! Look at the graphics! You're not a true gamer unless you're elitist about graphics!

I don't know what a true gamer is, I'm a guy who play games, no time for making an identity from it. But sauerbraten does it better, and it doesn't even require a good graphics card, and it has been around for ages now. Nowadays it seems like developing stuff with shitty graphics, labeling retro and selling it half-baked is what's "in".

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

juanfgs Re:And this is why Linux will never win the deskto (555 comments)

Oh and if you do manage to get it installed, you are left to search for drivers and utilities and to edit conf files for even the most basic functions like say multi-monitor support whereas with windows this is maybe 3 mouse clicks away.

YMMV In my experience is on windows which I have to hunt down for drivers, reboot after installing each one, install all the necessary programmes. On Fedora I only have to install the Nvidia driver which is 3 clicks away @ RPMFusion. If I try to play an mp3 the system prompts me to install the appropiate codecs, which takes 2 more clicks.

Ubuntu Turns 10

juanfgs Re:debian to be forked (110 comments)

From that site

To paraphrase Eric S. Raymond on the issue, we see systemd being very prone to mission creep and bloat and likely to turn into a nasty hairball over the longer term.

This is not a beard contest, rest assured the furry ones among us are not sheeps.

Then there is the "systemd fork" called uselessd with some good points and lots of lulz.

I'm starting to think that all these guys are just a bunch of teenagers with nothing else to do.

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

juanfgs Re:Git is an example of Linus Torvalds at his wors (387 comments)

Git uses poor naming, is poorly documented, and is, in my opinion, an example of the worst of the lack of social sophistication in programmers.

Luckily your opinion is something I wouldn't even use to wipe my arse with.

A program is not finished until the user interface and documentation make using the program as easy as possible

An open source program is not finished until it somewhat runs, it's source is published, and people find it useful. Don't like it? don't use it or write something better, if you can't, just go cry into a corner.

KDE Releases Plasma 5.1

juanfgs Re:Does anyone still use Gnome? (60 comments)

After the initial gnome 3 fiasco I moved to kde now I run mate, but I think that gnome 3 is quite acceptable. The problem with KDE is that sometimes it's too distracting, and on other aspects is slow ( at least on my machine the file manager takes a while to load, meanwhile nautilus/caja loads instantly). Some of the functions of the programs offered by KDE don't actually work as intended ( at least in my experience). Some small things are annoying, for example when using the treeview in Kate, sometimes it has happened that I accidentally dragged a folder instead of clicking on it, and the editor loaded all the files inside, crashing in the process. Kate also has refused to open some files in write mode since it considers them to be too large, gEdit/Geany just open it and let me work. I like a lot of KDE stuff, however I find it kind of counterproductive to use, and slow/sluggish, specially the file manager.

Systemd Adding Its Own Console To Linux Systems

juanfgs Ohh the irony (774 comments)

Now your long post didn't address any single problem with the UNIX philosophy. Apple clearly showed that integration for desktop users is not impossible with UNIX, and UNIX philosophy is not even against a user exposed integrated interface.

GNOME 3 Winning Back Users

juanfgs Re:Can't forgive. (267 comments)

"The biggest thing any program can do is not the technical details of the program itself; it’s how useful the program is to users. So any time any program (like the kernel or any other project), breaks the user experience, to me, that’s the absolute worst failure that a software project can make." (Linus Torvalds)

Yeah right because the kernel doesn't break its ABI/API on each release...

GNOME 3 Winning Back Users

juanfgs I might go back to gnome 3... (267 comments)

If they reached feature parity with the old Gnome 2/Mate . This is:

  • Being able to change my themes without a 3rd party app at least as decent as the ones on MATE or Cinnamon.
  • Desktop notifications not acting funky (Skype for example, spamming notifications, or closing itself when using the skype extension)
  • Bring back nautilus statusbar... some people like to know how much space we have left when browsing files without clicking on properties, it was useful. I don't even know why they dumbed down one of the best file managers out there, nautilus was fast, and feature rich.
  • Whatever you're doing with gEdit, please stop. Yeah we know that fancy NodeJS devs love these new Textmate clones that keep spawning everywhere, but people who actually work with a text editor need something powerful and flexible which doesn't mutate into another beast on every release. Also what's up with these new comic-like dialogs that get unusable if you aren't using the default ( horribbly padded) theme? get your CSS shit together
  • Being able to drag and drop windows between desktops without switching to activities
  • Usable menu entry editor

Outside of that I kinda like the new "workflow" of Gnome, but knowing that your favourite feature might be dropped on the next release doesn't look really good.
