I thought we were done with Imperial units after the rebels blew up the Death Star.

In Round 2, Jammie Thomas Jury Awards RIAA $1,920,000

mchale Re:She made it easy for them (793 comments)

Ironically, the fact that she owes more money than she can ever possibly pay means that she's now free to download as many songs as she wants. After all, they can't put her in jail (yet), and any further financial penalties are redundant.

Hardy Heron Making Linux Ready for the Masses?

mchale Re:No, not really (1100 comments)

"Linux can't run games" is pretty clearly not strictly true.

At the same time, I (and at least a handful of other people I know) are still on Windows because Linux can't support WoW, Starcraft, or any of a number of other popular games. Telling me that other games are also fun and I should just play them instead really doesn't cut it.

A lot of people still use their desktop/laptop as a gaming platform. As long as Linux continues to have basically no support in that arena from game developers, it's going to have a tough time gaining a toehold against Windows.
