    I like how you think, thanks for the useful information and the laughs.

    A house is a bit harder to hide, though.
  2. I don't understand exactly what you mean by...

    I don't understand exactly what you mean by "legally reachable", but I have bank accounts, a home, and vehicles, so as far as I am aware I definitely do have assets they can pursue.


    Excellent...
  3. That's fine advice for people tech-savvy enough...

    That's fine advice for people tech-savvy enough to visit Phoronix forums, but your average person can't manage that. Relatives of mine who were not as good at internet anonymity got hit with...
  4. That looks really, really cool. I never put the...

    That looks really, really cool. I never put the time into learning graphic design or aesthetics, so like many server back-end developers my attempts at pretty visuals are awful. But I'm going to...
  5. Obviously cmr~ knows Rust way, way, way way...

    Obviously cmr~ knows Rust way, way, way way better than I do, but to add to what he said - my understanding is that the entire reason Mozilla developers created the language was for an equivalent or...
  6. Thanks for the information. I hope Mozilla in...

    Thanks for the information. I hope Mozilla in general, and Rust and Servo in particular do well.
  7. I thought the same thing. Cool. One thing...

    I thought the same thing. Cool.

    One thing that surprised me about Mozilla and Rust - the flagship Rust project is the "Servo" browser. The last time I tried to compile it, it involved tons of C...

    D1.0 was created by Walter Bright, who wrote a working commercial C++ compiler but didn't have a formal computer science education. D2.0, which is the current version, was mostly designed by Andrei...

    Wow, that is a tremendous improvement. Cool.

    If you posted it in the video I missed it - what video card and driver are you using? (If you do not wish to publish that, it's fine. I am just...
  10. Huh. Funny that Microsoft would be so...

    Huh. Funny that Microsoft would be so inconsistent. Maybe the other school was paying them a big support contract and yours was not.



    I developed software for Windows CE from 2001 to 2005...
  11. I had to look that up. That's awesome. Ideally,...

    I had to look that up. That's awesome. Ideally, it would be automatically integrated in Yast/yum/dnf/apt, so that every time you made a change it would snapshot for you and you could revert...

    He said he worked at a school. Microsoft works extra hard to help schools and keep their products cheap for schools because their marketers are smart - make someone comfortable with Microsoft...
  13. I know it's an unpopular position to hold, but I...

    I know it's an unpopular position to hold, but I think that the latest Microsoft stuff is largely pretty good, technologically speaking. I prefer to use alternatives for political reasons, not...
  14. As a practical matter, most of the people coming...

    As a practical matter, most of the people coming to Linux have used Mac OS X and especially Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, or 7 before. So I think it's only sensible for Linux desktop environments to...
  15. That's not really a fair comparison, though. ...

    That's not really a fair comparison, though. Microsoft makes its products available to educational institutions cheaply or completely without cost, and in that environment you get better support...
  16. Actually, I don't mind the Unity user interface. ...

    Actually, I don't mind the Unity user interface. I only wrote "Shuttleworth went crazy and Ubuntu development went haywire" because I think the way they rolled out Unity was terrible. My big...
  17. It's not hard to explain or to understand. You...

    It's not hard to explain or to understand. You want it to "just work". I understand that, and I respect it. I do.

    I'm not making the argument that Linux, with the current driver support...
  18. Seconded. I'd say that a well-configured Linux...

    Seconded.

    I'd say that a well-configured Linux desktop, which is not that difficult to do, is pretty close behind OS X for visual aesthetics and comfortably ahead of Microsoft. That's pretty damn...
  19. I absolutely believe the reason Perl, Python,...

    I absolutely believe the reason Perl, Python, Ruby and PHP came to dominate web development is the rapid feedback loop. Change your source code, save the change, Alt-Tab to your browser, hit F5,...

    C++ is an awesome language, but of course it's very complex. D (version 2) has some features that I don't think C++11 has or realistically can ever get without rewriting the language. "static if"...
