Firefox 22 Released, Boosts 3-D Gaming and Video Calls

rbpOne Re:Boosts 3D Gaming and video calls? (156 comments)

" There was a time when videos weren't watched on a computer, because a computer was for performing math calculations. We do more things on a computer now because computers have gotten better at doing them."

I play 3D games on my computer, but not in my browser. I watch videos both via browser and specific applications, but i dont use my browser as a Home Entertainment System.

Why would a browser do 3D-gaming and videocalls? Its nothing but bloat.

rbpOne Boosts 3D Gaming and video calls? (156 comments)

That's two things i really never do within my browser.

Maybe in 23, they could boost performance and reduce memoryleaks instead of adding bloat.

Ask Slashdot: Options For FOSS Remote Support Software?

rbpOne Teamviewer! (247 comments)

It is NOT open source, but is in free as in beer for your use.
It supports Windows, Linux, and OS X.

Teamviewer is very use to use; I worked in IT at a business with about 800-1000 desktops and laptops, and i never experienced the users having trouble with it. They just called support, and it would go "Please click the "Company-Name Support" icon on your dekstop" "OK" "Now tell me your ID" "xxx xxx xxx" "And your newly generated passkey?" "xxxx" and they would be good to go.

I installed it on my grandparents (85 and 82) laptops to ease the time i had to use on helping them, with the laptops. They never had any problems with it.

How Will Steam on GNU/Linux Affect Software Freedom?

rbpOne rms is stuck (580 comments)

"Any GNU/Linux distro that comes with software to offer these games will teach users that the point is not freedom."

An OS won't teach anyone about anything.. And since when was using Linux about freedom?

Im all for open/free software(the laptop im posting this from is Windows 7(But atleast im using firefox ;)), my other laptop is Arch, my 2 servers are both ArchServer), but rms needs to be ignored.
He is stuck in another world, like zeitgeist hippies.

rbpOne Star Trek is hard Sci-Fi? (117 comments)

"noting the game will be based around hard science fiction (think Star Trek sci-fi)"

How is Star Trek hard Sci-fi? Dont get me wrong, i love Star Trek, i watch a few episodes per week, but star trek is hardly hard science fiction. The first series was a western set in space, the next three was soaps with a sci-fi element, set in space. The last was a mix of those two types of shows.

The Windows 8 Power Struggle: Metro Vs Desktop

rbpOne Re:Trek rule (590 comments)

It's not true regarding MS Windows and it's not true regarding Star Trek movies.

The "Every other MS OS..." meme is getting lame.

Why Everyone Hates the IT Department

rbpOne They dont... (960 comments)

When i worked in IT in a company with 800 employees i never felt any generel hate.

When you work in IT, you have to deal with everyone, so you will experience som dislike, that, perhaps, a graphic designer wouldnt. As someone in IT, i deal with everyone in the company with a computer or smartphone. As a graphic designer you deal with coworkers in the same area of bidnezz, and some managers.

Hell, one department in the company, brought the IT office cake when we solved even the most simple of problems (Like telling them that the reason their printer dosent work, is because it needs more paper)
