Linus Torvalds: 'I Still Want the Desktop'

macs4all Re: Why focus on the desktop? (633 comments)

Actually, statistically speaking, Mac users have a pretty good record overall when it comes to being ethical, with shareware and commercial apps. And before someone wants a citation, I can,t remember where I read that, but I definitely did.

But, we ALL also have read our share of Linux users on these comment-pages that believe that paying for software (and I don't mean FOSS) is something that doesn't apply to them.

You're right about one thing, though: Windows users, by and large, are the hands-down biggest software thieves on the planet!

Linus Torvalds: 'I Still Want the Desktop'

macs4all Re: Why focus on the desktop? (633 comments)

Let's not be silly. OSX is free if you steal it. More power to you for doing so, but don't pretend that building a 'hackintosh' and running an illegal copy of OSX on it makes OSX free. Haha! I agree.

However, it is equally stupid to include the price of a Mac (especially a grossly inflated one in the price of OS X, and then pretend that the hardware that Linux runs on has no cost.

You can purchase a perfectly serviceable Mac mini brand new for $600, not the $2000 stated above). I'm pretty sure you can't purchase a similarly-spec'ed, ASSEMBLED, tested, and WARRANTED unit for much less. That argument has been done to death on Slashdot.

...And I didn't even factor in all the actually useful (not crapware or "trial") apps that come with that Mac.

I avoided mentioning building from Darwin, because I don't think you can actually build up something that will actually run OS X apps from it. But I might be wrong about that.

But yes, you are correct. The Darwin Mach/BSD Kernel is Libre...

Linus Torvalds: 'I Still Want the Desktop'

macs4all Re:Why focus on the desktop? (633 comments)

Free with $2000 purchase, fucktard. And you can't downgrade. Moving from Snow Leopard to Lion was my greatest mistake. Up to that point I had been a satisfied, kool-aid drinking, cash-spending Appletard.

1. You missed my comment about Hackintoshes. Plus, real Macs start at just under $1k.

2. Lion, especially when it first came out, was apparently somewhat of a POS. I simply avoided it; because, apparently unlike you, I have enough experience with computers and OSes in general that I never install a new version of anything the minute it comes out.

Everyone is allowed to have a "meh" release once in awhile. Apple actually has a fairly good track record in that regard (MUCH better than Windows, where it is a common joke that you "avoid the even-number releases"). I'm sure Linux is no different.

And please tell me what kept you from re-installing Snow Leopard after a Drive Format? Or, better yet, from that Backup that Apple encouraged you to make (and which you could have done totally automatically if you'd bothered to use Time Machine)? I've personally seen Time Machine start with a completely bare HD and restore EVERYTHING to an EXACTITUDE, all with a couple of Clicks. You could have EASILY "Downgraded" using that method.

Oh, and a quick Google search reveals BUNCHES of Posts on how to downgrade from Lion to Snow Leopard. You obviously didn't even try... So, who's the '"tard" now???

Linus Torvalds: 'I Still Want the Desktop'

macs4all Re:Torvalds is true to form.... (633 comments)

On macosX everything is typically in a fat binary.

I don't think that means what you think it means.

"Fat Binaries" are a term that originated back in the days of Apple's first CPU-platform migration (back in the MacOS days). "Fat Binaries" are Applications that have been targeted to install and run on Macs with different CPU Architecture (in the original case, either 68k or PPC, then later in OS X, either PPC or Intel).

They are "Fat" because they actually have the necessary "CPU-specific" code duplicated for the different hardware platforms.

Apple just had a "Launcher" (can't remember the actual name) in the OS that would silently and automagically pick the proper version of the App to load and launch.

However, talking about "Dependencies", OS X (and even the original MacOS) was (and is) VERY nice about not Spraying stuff all over your Drive (like Windows STILL does!!!). That's why, by and large, you can move an Application (which looks like a single Icon, but is in reality just a Folder full of stuff) simply by Dragging it to virtually anywhere on any accessible volume, and Uninstall it by Dragging it to the Trash and clicking "Empty Trash". It will probably leave behind a Preference file of a few Kilobytes; but, compared to excising a Windows App (or apparently a Linux one), it is a beauty thing...

Linus Torvalds: 'I Still Want the Desktop'

macs4all Re:Why focus on the desktop? (633 comments)

We need a free desktop OS. Linux is the only contender.

Um, OS X is free. Yes, as in Beer.

The Mac App Store doesn't check your s/n, just your AppleID. Plus, you can Torrent pretty much any version of OS X the nanosecond it is released.

And if you're as smart as you think you are, you don't even have to pay the mythical "Apple Tax"; just build up a Hackintosh.

You'll have generally inferior build quality; but you'll still have a nice Unix-y underpinning, AND the ability to actually use apps that the "real world" uses (AND your F/OSS apps Too!)

Or do you have some fantasy that you might need to actually code something yourself in the Linux Kernel?

perhaps you can enlighten us as to why he's wrong, and what the linux kernel has to do to better support desktop environments?

How about "Coalesce into the 'One True Distro(tm)' "? At least for the Desktop.

Seriously. The problem is, there isn't just one "Linux", but rather a plethora of "Linuces".

So, from the (non-Kernel) Developer POV, it's just like the horseshit that goes on in HTML to support multiple browsers.

Until the DESKTOP Linux babies quite thinking they have "THEWay", there will NEVER be significant outside (that is, outside of the Linux-Cult Community) Application Development. Period.

Rightscorp's New Plan: Hijack Browsers Until Infingers Pay Up

macs4all Re:Amost sounds like a good deal ... (376 comments)

So, if I say that I have evidence that you're using water flowing into your house to make drugs, I guess you're absolutely fine with having that water cut off until you can prove that you're not indeed using it to make drugs. If you are making drugs, I guess you're ok with your family going thirsty even though it's not their crime.

That's why Congress stopped all the "Forfeiture" stuff that didn't require anything more than a "Confidential Informant" pointing a finger.

Now, Forfeiture requires a CONVICTION.

That's why you stopped hearing about it allofasudden about a decade and a half ago. Before that, there were even software packages that showed how Police Departments could Fund themselves through "Forfeiture".

That really stemmed the tide of "[Governmental Entity] v. $50,000, a Corvette, and 2915 Any Street" cases...

Change ISP at first sign of this. Then contest the contract. Then contest the past bill. Let them take it tocollections. Good luck with that. Make it cost the ISP more than the $10-20 that shitheads want. Let the ISP slam the door in there face.

Actually, if you do any "consulting" (think hard!) with your computer, using the internet (as many, many Slashdotters do), or if your job requires you respond to work emails in a timely manner, the MONETARY DAMAGES to you can mount up PRETTY FAST...

Rightscorp's New Plan: Hijack Browsers Until Infingers Pay Up

macs4all Re:Unconstitutinal (376 comments)

Not in civil cases - there's only apreponderence of the evidence. Besides, I'm pretty sure the ToS you agreed to with your ISP would never let you get past a mediator, let alone into a courtroom.

I am also pretty sure that:

1. You can only sign your Constitutional Rights away with a SPECIFIC, KNOWING Statement. Burying something like that on Page 115 of a 130-page Click-Through User Agreement will NOT hold up in Court.

Hmmm. On second thought, I wonder if Rightscorp is trying to circumvent your Right to a Jury Trial by making the sum $10 (rather than $20)?

2. Even if you have to use Mediation against your ISP, you signed no such agreement with Rightscorp, period.

3. See my other posting, above, regarding filing Professional Conduct Grievances against Rightscorp and your ISP's Counsel. NOTHING stops that; and actually, if enough people do it in a particular Jurisdiction (while forwarding a copy of same to the American Bar Association and the Solicitor General and Attorney General of the U.S., as well as your State Attorney General's Consumer Fraud Div, and your local Assistant U.S. Attorney), eventually SOMEONE will come up for air...

But one thing that won't help: Bitching about it on Slashdot (other than perhaps to mobilize others, too)...

Rightscorp's New Plan: Hijack Browsers Until Infingers Pay Up

macs4all Re:Unconstitutinal (376 comments)

That only applies to the legal system. Rightscorp is bypassing the legal system and instead getting the ISPs to do the work of law enforcement, and with no analogue to the court system. Basically there are three private parties, Rightscorp, the ISP, and the ISP's customer, and any of the three is legally allowed to presume the other two parties are guilty bastards without proof. Also any of the three are able to sue if they feel unfairly treated if they think some laws are being broken, and they can countersue if anyone sues them, if they'd rather spend that kind of money doing so.

Well, Alrighty Then! You just stumbled on the solution.

Since (I assume) no agreement exists between Rightscorp and the ISPs, said ISPs can (and should) simply tell Rightscorp to POUND SAND, because they are simply not under any statutory nor contractual obligation to even READ Rightscorp's request; let alone HONOR it.

Bottom line: If Rightscorp wants to take alleged "infringers" to court, they have to do it the "right" way (i.e., through the DMCA).

They simply cannot turn ISPs into Police, Judge and Jury, at least not in the USA.

INAL, but AFIK, even in civil cases, there are still a modicum of Due Process Rights that one has. Yes, I know this isn't in a Court; but I'm about to change that...

Every single alleged infringer needs to file a Small Claims Court case against their ISP and Rightscorp, suing for the statutory maximum (usually $5k to $10k). It only costs about $50 in most jurisdictions, and in most jurisdictions, corporations MUST hire an attorney (there goes a minimum of about $2500 for them).

Better yet, If you file in regular (Superior or Circuit) Court in your Jurisdiction, it costs a little more (usually around $100-200), but then, the Corporation MUST hire an attorney (while you can ALWAYS represent yourself "pro se"). In both cases, your meme is going to be "extortion", due process violations, and "frivolous and vexatious litigation". Also throw the words "professional misconduct" around.

Speaking of which, while you're at it, when they DO retain an attorney, then write up a "Grievance" to their local Licensing Board (often the Supreme Court in the State they are practicing), alleging Professional Misconduct (attorneys cannot advance frivolous claims), and that you have Standing to do so even though it isn't your attorney, because your Grievance is based on the "Proper Administration of Justice" and because every Attorney is an "Officer of the Court" FIRST, and MUST uphold their Jurisdiction's Rules of Professional Conduct for Attorneys (you can find them online on your State's website), EVEN ABOVE their duty to "zealously defend their client".

Even if the Licensing Board doesn't formally start a Professional Conduct procedure against the law firm (which they won't), said law firm/attorney HAS to inform their Malpractice Insurance Carrier of the Grievance, which can cause them to be dropped by their carrier, or at least, pay increased insurance rates. Most states also list on their Roll of Attorneys how many Grievances have been filed against them, which can limit their future business, and possibly affect their local Bar Association's "Rating" for them.

IOW, since they are playing fast and loose with the concept of "Justice", you can play "Hardball" with the tools at your disposal, too. All it takes is a few hours of research and typing.

To quote a great line from "Boston Legal": "I like to put the Adversary back into the Adversarial Process."

Roger Boisjoly, 73, Dies - Warned of Shuttle Danger

macs4all macs4all writes  |  more than 2 years ago

macs4all (973270) writes "Six months before the space shuttle Challenger exploded over Florida on Jan. 28, 1986, Roger Boisjoly wrote a portentous memo. He warned that if the weather was too cold, seals connecting sections of the shuttle’s huge rocket boosters could fail. “The result could be a catastrophe of the highest order, loss of human life,” he wrote.

The memo was meant to jolt Morton Thiokol, the company that made the boosters and employed Mr. Boisjoly. The night before the Challenger’s liftoff, the temperature dipped below freezing. Unusual for Florida, the cold was unprecedented for a shuttle launching, and it prompted Mr. Boisjoly and other engineers to plead that the flight be postponed. Their bosses, under pressure from NASA, rejected the advice.

The shuttle exploded 73 seconds after launching, killing its seven crew members, including Christa McAuliffe, a high school teacher from Concord, N.H.Mr. Boisjoly’s memo was soon made public. He became widely known as a whistle-blower in a federal investigation of the disaster. And though he was hailed for his action by many, he was also made to suffer for it.On the night of Jan. 27, 1986, Mr. Boisjoly and four other Thiokol engineers used a teleconference with NASA to press the case for delaying the next day’s launching because of the cold. At one point, Mr. Boisjoly said, he slapped down photos showing the damage cold temperatures had caused to an earlier shuttle. It had lifted off on a cold day, but not this cold.

“How the hell can you ignore this?” he demanded. At first this seemed persuasive, according to commission testimony. Makers of critical components had the power to postpone flights.

Four Thiokol vice presidents, all engineers themselves, went offline to huddle. They later said that they had worried they lacked conclusive data to stop a launching that had already been postponed twice. They thought the naysayers might be operating on gut reaction, not science.

Jerry Mason, Thiokol’s general manager, told his fellow executives to take off their engineering hats and put on management hats. They told NASA it was a go.

The next morning Mr. Boisjoly watched the launching. If there was going to be a problem, he thought it would come at liftoff. As the shuttle cleared the tower, his prayers seemed answered.

“Thirteen seconds later,” Mr. Boisjoly said, “we saw it blow up.”

Mr. Boisjoly (pronounced like Beaujolais wine) died in Nephi, Utah, near Provo, on Jan. 6. He was 73. Besides his wife, the former Roberta Malcolm, he is survived by his daughters Norma Patterson and Darlene Richens; his brothers Ronald, Russell and Richard; and eight grandchildren."

Apple Goes To Bat For Developers Against Lodsys

macs4all macs4all writes  |  more than 3 years ago

macs4all (973270) writes "Apple has apparently put its money, and its legal muscle, where its "lawyer letter" is, in the battle of iOS developers against patent troll Lodsys. Apple has filed a Motion To Intervene in the proceedings in East Texas. Apple's motion states that the independent IOS developers-defendants:

"are individuals or small entities with far fewer resources than Apple and [...] lack the technical information, ability, and incentive to adequately protect Apple's rights under its license agreement."

History suggests that Apple's motion will be granted, and then Lodsys will feel the full force of Apple's legal team; which is surely a lot more than they bargained for.

Slashdot readers will remember that Apple had already fired off a "back-off" letter to Lodsys, stating that it was Apple's position that the independent developers were covered under the license that had already been negotiated.

Now the fun begins!"

Windows Phone 7 To Axe Multitasking

Apple Tablet To Be Alan Kay's 1968 Dynabook?

macs4all macs4all writes  |  more than 4 years ago

macs4all (973270) writes "Alan Kay was a researcher with Xerox PARC, and later one of the conceptual contributors to Steve Jobs on the first Mac design. In 1968, he envisioned a precursor to the laptop and tablet computers (in one). Called the Dynabook.

The Dynabook was quite an interesting concept, and some of the capabilites, such as the learning capabilities, still have not been adequately addressed in any existing product.

It is worth noting that Kay and Jobs originally conceived of the Macintosh as a tablet, and in fact, the Dynabook made, er, flesh.

So, is the upcoming tablet to be the final realization of what the Mac was truly intended to be? I think so, and so does this blogger

Revising History To Fit The Bible

macs4all macs4all writes  |  more than 5 years ago

macs4all (973270) writes "Not content to mold science class to foment its agenda, this article reports that those ka-ray-zee "educators" in Texas are proposing "revamping the K-12 curriculum to emphasize the roles of the Bible, the Christian faith and the civic virtue of religion in the study of American history. Two of them want to remove or de-emphasize references to several historical figures who have become liberal icons, such as César Chávez and Thurgood Marshall."

Of course, reasoned heads on the Texas Board of "Education" will surely prevail. Those members, hand-picked for their "enlightened" views are exemplified by Board member David Barton, founder of WallBuilders, a group that promotes America's Christian heritage; and Rev. Marshall, who preaches that Watergate, the Vietnam War and Hurricane Katrina were God's judgments on the nation's sexual immorality.

The conservative reviewers say they believe that children must learn that America's founding principles are biblical. For instance, they say the separation of powers set forth in the Constitution stems from a scriptural understanding of man's fall and inherent sinfulness, or "radical depravity," which means he can be governed only by an intricate system of checks and balances."

Microsoft Patents PageUp/PageDown

If patenting the obvious is considered something of an art form in the world of IT, then Microsoft is undoubtedly an old master. The Page Up Page Down patent it has been granted would seem to confirm this...

US Patent 7,415,666 goes under the snappy title of: "Method and system for navigating paginated content in page-based increments" and is the latest to be granted to that serial patent application junkie better known as Microsoft.

Anyone who has ever looked at technology patents will know that there is a trick to quickly scanning these application titles in order to weed out the genuine ones from those that are, to be fair, just attempting to patent something that already exists.

So what could a method of navigating paginated content, or stuff on the page, using page-based increments possibly refer to? Ding! Of course, the PgUp and PgDn keys.

Look at the abstract description on that patent and you will see that what Microsoft has cleverly managed to grab ownership of is:

"A method and system in a document viewer for scrolling a substantially exact increment in a document, such as one page, regardless of whether the zoom is such that some, all or one page is currently being viewed."

Which sounds remarkably like using the Page Up and Page Down keys..."
