What happens when they take away your USB support? I guess you'll have to buy a new Jeep to get USB type c right? That will be fine. The solution is yet another dongle right? But what about the limited power draw on classic USB 2/3?
I understood you liked Lumina, i was backing you up that it's decent.
Regarding PC-BSD, I'd file a bug report on your install issue and maybe wait until they release a new version against FreeBSD 11.
If you just want the Lumina desktop, perhaps you can install it from a FreeBSD package and switch over to it on your current install? FreeBSD has it in ports/packages.
Lumina isn't that bad. I just got it working in MidnightBSD a week ago.
Way too mainstream.
You haven't used a forum lately have you? Most are full of spam
It's PIN in THE US if it's a debit card (usually) but signature otherwise. Recently went to the UK and non of our cards worked with PIN. Everything was signature and merchants there found it to be a real hassle. They did look at the back of our cards to match it too.
We should have gone chip and pin from the beginning.
The reads seemed a bit faster in the UK than they are here too.
You're not wrong, but I think open source developers find ways of making code difficult to use as well. For example, the GNOME project seems to hate non Linux operating systems. Many tools are pushing systemd or wayland integration now.
One can argue that since it's open you can re-implement systemd or write a wayland compositor yourself but this is significant work and it's also a moving target. Just because something is open, doesn't mean it's useful.
We all forget that sometimes.
The Mac OS X kernel and many other system components are already open source and available on Apple's developer site. This has been the case for years.
Similarly, Microsoft has started to open source
I don't know about your grandma, but mine can drive very fast. I'd rather use OS X than Windows any day of the week.
Intel gave up on desktops. They started the death spiral. Laptops won't get faster, just GPU bumps.
Look at numbers for Haswell vs anything since. It's not much. Microsoft's windows 10 move further hurt them because people can sit on PCs longer. Microsoft had to save themselves.
Intel needs to blow out performance on PCs to get upgrades started again and for that to matter, we need a new killer app for PCs that require real CPU power. Something that can't be done on a tablet right now. Something that isn't easily offloaded onto cloud computing.
I'm just hoping AMD doesn't give up on gamers or desktops. I need FX or core i7 CPUs for what I do and I realize it's not common, but there are CAD users, programmers, engineers, etc that need CPU performance. They killed workstations because of PC speeding up and now they want to kill PCs... what are we supposed to use?
Yeah, they can't sell to grandma anymore and I'm going to have to pay a lot again like I did when I first started using computers, but I still need a fast PC and a laptop CPU won't cut it.
And for the record, I also have multiple PCs. My wife is also a programmer and a gamer. She has a 6 core intel haswell-e desktop and used to buy Mac Pros . I've got a core i7 4770 with 32GB of RAM, 3 SSDs and 2 hard drives. I've also got lowend servers running for building software and running websites. I know I'm not the norm, but there are segments like me out there.
I don't think it's solved, it's just better than regular k-cups. However, those wouldn't work for some k-cups such as hot cocoa. The powder is too fine.
you could probably get away with most coffee or tea k-cups though.
As someone who uses them frequently, let me explain. It's about laziness and choice. I can drop a pod in the machine and get a cup of coffee without grinding, getting a filter, etc. My wife can enjoy a different brand of coffee without making two pots.
Our habit costs about $60/month in the winter and around $20/month in the summer. We would have spent $20 to $40 on beans anyway.
A significant number of our k-cups are San Francisco Bay because they're a little more environmentally friendly.
Seems reasonable. Microsoft used to have a Unix distro, Xenix.
They ditched it when the got far enough along with NT.
Real programmers don't write in BASIC. Actually, no programmers write in BASIC after reaching puberty.
