Not Just Apple: GnuTLS Bug Means Security Flaw For Major Linux Distros

therealprologic Linux is not an Operating System (144 comments)

Can we please stop refereing to Linux as if it's an Operating System!? We properly call Apple's Operating System OS X and their mobile variant iOS. We don't call it Darwin now do we? Come on guys! Get it right. This affects RHEL, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, CRUX, etc, etc and anyone else that happens to use the GNU TLS Software in question. Which brings me to another point... What is the software here that's actually affected? gnupgp?

therealprologic Privacy and Anonymity must stay! (124 comments)

I completely agree with a lot of the comments. Privacy, Tracking, Spying, Monitoring are BIG SERIOUS problems in the world today (and have been for al long time!) It's important that we fight this to the end and ensure the privacy, security of our lives, data and personal identities.

Intel Dev: GTK's Biggest Problem, and What Qt Does Better

therealprologic Hostile Communities (282 comments)

Unfortunately developer communities can tend to get rather hostile. It only takes a few hostile folks to tarnish an entire community. Python is a classic example as well.

Apple Pushes Developers To iOS 7

therealprologic Apple's IOS 7 sucks for VIsion Impaired Persons (336 comments)

I'm Vision Impaired and like many other Vision Impaired Persons around the world that probably used to enjoy using Apple mobile products with iOS 7 are probably in the same boat as me. The latest iOS 7 with the visual cues removed, bevels, edges just make for a very awful UI experience overall. It's so bad I'm actually moving away from Apple (at least their iPhone/iPad mobile products) and considering Android (since 4.2+ now includes zoom/magnification accessibility).
