zill Re:Ugh (597 comments)

The ones with tracks are called tanks. The ones that float on air are called hovercars. You wouldn't call M1A1 a "car", would you?

RMS Speaks Out Against Ubuntu

zill Re:Ugh (597 comments)

I claimed privacy implies FOSS. I didn't say anything about the converse, since the converse is simply not true. I don't know how you could've gotten "FOSS implies privacy" out of my post, when clearly there are wheels everywhere not attached to cars.

RMS Speaks Out Against Ubuntu

zill Re:Ugh (597 comments)

Privacy is only possible with FOSS. To make a car analogy, FOSS is to privacy what wheels are to cars. You can't have a car without wheels.

Golden Spike Working On Private Moon Flights

zill Re:Best of luck to them (121 comments)

First, the price is for two people, the price per seat is half that.

Next time the cab driver tells you the fare is $20, give him $5 and tell him that's the per seat price.

Nike+ FuelBand: Possibly a Big Security Hole For Your Life

zill Re:what is the point of this article? (162 comments)

GP's point is that the user willingly brought the device, willingly let it record their lives, and willingly shared that data with a third party.

If I wear a T-shirt with my root password on it, then I deserve every bad thing that's coming to me. It's not my OS' fault nor my T-shirt's fault; I only have my own stupidity to blame.

If the distro is defunct then it's a victimless crime; GPL violation can only be pursued by whoever wrote the code. If the distro is defunct then they won't be able to lawyer you down.
