vomitology Free Windows? (353 comments)

I may have missed in in the article, but is there any provision that states the OS has to be removed or disbled? If not, what's to keep someone from buying a PC and saying "Gimmie mah lira!" while still using the pre-installed OS?

BitTorrent Performance Test: Sync Is Faster Than Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox

vomitology Re:Is it open source yet? (124 comments)

That whole 'if it's not FOSS I can't trust it' line is mostly bull. Unless you know how to de-compile the code and eye read it, it doesn't matter *what* the license is, you still have to trust that whoever wrote it does what it says it does, and nothing more. And if you can, well... carry on. ( :

vomitology Re:The real problem with BSD (143 comments)

Sorry, didn't know I needed to source my opinion. I've tried several versions of both Free- and PC-, I've tried to get help on official forums, a few Google Groups, and some of the larger IRCs. I did read the Handbook. It did help with installation, but it wasn't much help getting my Broadcom wireless working.

Where shall I submit my sworn affidavit and list of personal references?
