Debian Votes Against Mandating Non-systemd Compatibility
Actually, I think it's a problem that the anti-systemd forces
keep going on about "the unix way" and what-not... haven't they
been paying attention to the way things really work? (Hint: if
esr says it, it's probably not quite right. )
You are right, this is the main problem. I like working "the unix way" and this is why I like Linux. The moment you change this, all the fun will go away. And fun is very important for me when I work.
Perl kicked Bourne butt by merging nearly everything you want
into one process-- that's something you'd think a sysadmin
Right again. But you have a choice to use Perl or not. It is not like installing Perl will make it impossible for you to use your loving shell.
Telegram Not Dead STOP Alive, Evolving In Japan STOP
That's funny. You don't seem to notice that you are robbed by your bank.
Are Bankers Paid Too Much? Are Technology CEOs?
"Maybe the bigger question is why is CEO pay so entirely disconnected from company performance?"
The even bigger question is, why is this any of our business? As long as it is not the taxpayers footing the bill, count your own money...
It is our business only when the government "save" the bank with our money.
Ask Slashdot: How Would You Fix the Linux Desktop?
No, you are THE problem. Why spread Linux base? I like it and I use it. There are a lot of things (music, books etc) which I like and most people don't. Would I change them for people to like them? No! If you change Linux to be loved by everybody I probably won't like it anymore.
Do You Really Need a Smart Phone?
You can try to read a book. A real book. A fiction book. You will be surprised.
Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda Resigns From Slashdot
/. is my no. 1 site. For news and fun.
Confessions of an Internet "Shock Jock"
Welcome to real world :)
It is not about tech columns. It's about all content. This is why I don't want to pay for content. You cannot trust it anymore.
Avoiding a Digital Dark Age
All of it is stored in multiple locations, with encryption(and decryption software) used as needed.
I moved all my data because i was tired of being tied to any one platform. I can access everything i have electronically on all three platforms now.
Do you think that you encryption/decryption software will run on any operating system 10 years from now? What about 20 years?
iPad Is a "Huge Step Backward"
First, the FSF needs to convince us average users need to have control. Why should average users have control over their computer? Isn't this what got us the virus nightmare in Windows?
You should go live in North Korea for a while. And than see if you need somebody to convince you that you need to have control. Maybe I exaggerated but in the end its the same thing, you should be able to choose.
3 Strikes — Denying Physics Won't Save the Video Stars
I'm from Romania and we have a very difficult economic situation right now, worse than others, because of a crappy political crisis. All I can think now is how could we vote these stupid fucks. All other countries from EU criticise us because of this. But I think in the end we are the same: Who the hell voted for Mandelson?
Netbooks Have a Huge Impact On the PC Industry
Yes, but it wood be nice to have a bigger screen!
11.6" Netbooks Face Off
Smart fortwo and Mercedes E Class are both cars. All these devices: laptop, notebook, netbook, are similar, size is the only thing that differentiate them. A PDA could be a motorcycle but not a netbook.
11.6" Netbooks Face Off
I don't think we need new names for the same device in different sizes. Marketing people probably need them.

Seems like somebody has something to sell. I wonder WHO is it?
ODF Alliance Warns Governments About Office 2007 ODF Support
Doesn't seems strange to you that only Microsoft handle it very differently?
Microsoft Raises $3.8B in Bond Sale
Maybe they want to buy a decent OS? And then drop Windows?
Offline Gmail Launched
It is not the same thing. If you download messages with POP3 you can access them only from your PC. Even with IMAP you don't have contacts from Gmail interface.
Using this feature you have all the things in one place, you can access them from any computer and on your PC you can have them even offline.
Is Microsoft Improving Its Image?
And why they keep adding more?
The End of Individual Genius?
Most of genial ideas were first rejected by community because they were not understood at that time. As a part of a group it will be impossible to impose such ideas to your companions.
