3 Recent Flights Make Unscheduled Landings, After Disputes Over Knee Room

mythix Re:Anthropometrics (814 comments)

Why would I have to pay extra because I'm tall? I already have to pay extra for heavy luggage, while a fatty who's short has all the room and takes multiples of my weight on board, while harassing their neighbors with the fat rolls lunging over the arm rest...

Why are the flight prices always getting cheaper while the comfort gets worse, it makes no sense to me, airline comfort was already low.
I can fly from Holland to Greece for 5 euros, but I cant get some legroom if I want to pay 50? I'm not sure these people know maths...

Elementary OS "Freya" Beta Released

mythix emphasis on design and usability (209 comments)

"emphasis on design and usability which draws a lot of comparisons to Mac OS X"

I've been switching between win/linux/osx on a daily basis for a couple of years now, and I honestly have no clue where the idea comes from that OSX is superior when it comes to usability...

It's even the OS with the weirdest UI quirks IMO...
