Instagram Wants To Sell Users' Photos Without Notice

lsolano Just uninstall it and delete your account (313 comments)

I dont know what is the great thing about instagram. It's just an app to apply some filters used mostly to apply a vintage effect in a photo of a meal. I know people here on /. don't need someone -me- to help you how to find an app to replace instagram, but please let your friends know about EyeEm or Snapseed. Anyway, results are almost the same.

How To Use a Linux Virtual Private Server

lsolano Thanks for the information (303 comments)

A VPS is just an Internet-connected computer. "Virtual" means it may not be an actual physical computer, but a virtualized host, one of many, each running as if it were a real computer.

I did not know that and I bet, almost no one here on /. either.

Does Crowdfunding Work?

lsolano Non profit/business projects. (70 comments)

Well, maybe and exception, but for non-business projects, Kickstarter works great if the idea of the project can make the people feel they're part of it.

I know about a movie, of a new Director that already made a pair of good very-low-budget movies that wanted to make a new one but better produced. Depending on the amount of money one send, you can get a different benefit like a DVD of the film, a ticket for the movie premiere or at least, see your name in the credits.

Simple projects that you don't expect much in return, but that you think they're a nice idea.

I don't see myself backing a business project with lots of money waiting for a big thing in return.

Shuttleworth: Trust Us, We're Trying to Make Shopping Better

lsolano Re:And people are still asking why... (255 comments)

still LibreOffice looks like Office 97.

What is wrong with that?

It looks outdated for new linux users. I like it because is simple, but for people coming from a windows world, it looks just "old". I think it does not help to adopt linux users.

Shuttleworth: Trust Us, We're Trying to Make Shopping Better

lsolano And people are still asking why... (255 comments)

... it will never be the Year of Linux in the Desktop.

I'd LOVE to use linux in the Desktop always (I love the Open Source philosophy) however, this kind of things make it hard.

Now what? Ubuntu users moving AGAIN to another distro? Mint? I do not know.

KDE/GNOME/Unity/X11/Mate/Cinnamon/LXDE/etc/etc/etc and still LibreOffice looks like Office 97.

I've decided a while ago to stay with debian, even if it does not look that "eye candy". Anyway, I'm old enough to not care at all if my desktop can not spin like a cube.

If someone cares about Linux in the Desktop, please stop this. Ubuntu is too popular between linux newbies, do not disappoint them. Please.

iPhone 5 Scorns Standards Promise To European Commission

lsolano ...and that conenctor is a great feature (543 comments)

Quite off topic but I can't help to say it: it's amazing how Apple, in the iPhone5 video, mentions the new connector as a new feature, and as if it was a gift from God, they say that it's reversible.

We can not deny they're marketing genius, the way they do those videos with Jony Ive and the other guy acting skills describing characteristics already in other devices as a incredible step in technology history, like LTE.

"We've created the new, much smaller lightning connector." Wow, what would this world be without it?

"And we made it reversible, so it fits either way." Thanks for explaining me that it fits either way, when I heard reversible, I did not catch it.

(My karma went from "Excellent" to "Good" recently, don't be so hard, please).

The True Challenges of Desktop Linux

lsolano Re:Open office (505 comments)

That's it.

I'd love to use linux in my Desktop and apart from the Office Suite, in my case, I know I could use linux the whole day at work. But with Libre/Open Office is impossible.

The very simple reason that the documents you receive does not even still look the same as the original, it's something a manager of a company can not tolerate.

I'm not at all an Apple lover, I'm even one of those that for any reason would use an iPhone and I've sticked to Andorid, but I have to admit that my life is easier since I've got a Macbook pro. I'd love to use a Linux instead, I mean it, but at work I simply can not.

Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Goes Stable On Linux

lsolano Re:Your comments could've been said in 1991 of Lin (231 comments)

Your comment really makes sense, made me think twice about what I wrote.

Maybe, it would have been better to make this announcement as a solid promise of a good driver, a work in progress with a bright future instead of saying that it went stable with the "exceptions" mentioned.

Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Goes Stable On Linux

lsolano Re:Nothng but Hate (231 comments)

It's not hate, it's being realistic.

If this "news" where about a group of students that, for a homework did that driver, that can considered brilliant.

But how can someone expect that we should praise this that works only "if you don't care about performance or are fine with running hardware that's a few generations old.".

Not disrespecting the people working on this, but in the real world, this is not practical at all. Stable: maybe; but incomplete for sure.
