  1. Ubuntu != Linux

    How to get proprietary benefits while releasing it all under a FOSS license. Step by step switch away from what the rest of the ecosystem is using and hope your users stick around. Once you've...
  2. I read a few years back that porting the server...

    I read a few years back that porting the server architecture on the Mach based HURD kernel to L4 was too difficult because of heavy Mach-isms in the interfaces. So the lowlevel userland system is...
  3. So the flagship, converged "FOSS" phone OS by...

    So the flagship, converged "FOSS" phone OS by Canonical is just as sad an affair as the rest of the phone world. Surprise, surprise.

    Why should I buy this thing again? I'm not gaining anything...
  4. Why would it be filled with unlicensed artwork?...

    Why would it be filled with unlicensed artwork? FOSS developers can't make slick artwork themselves?
  5. OGL atop Vulkan is universal OGL

    LunarG said that OGL could be implemented atop Vulkan as a vendor neutral OGL implementation, but that it wouldn't be easy.

    Am I wrong if I say that it would be a big pain once and that it would...

    systemd = less money

    I can't shake the feeling, that all the drama about systemd is caused by people who make their living by keeping the current SysV and peripheral cruft running on Linux, by writing copious amounts of...
  7. Or motherboard manufacturers could band together...

    Or motherboard manufacturers could band together and fund Coreboot to write and maintain an implementation that carries Tianocore as the payload. All the coreboot project needs to bring up a board is...
  8. Since when? All open windows are represented on...

    Since when? All open windows are represented on the window list, so one click there moves the desired window to the front. No need for minimise.
  9. I still don't see the problem. Linux is an OS...

    I still don't see the problem. Linux is an OS that practically assumes network connectivity. What isn't in the DVD iso can be downloaded from the repository.
  10. It's just an installer framework. Used only...

    It's just an installer framework. Used only during installation and it can install Qt and GTK based desktops equally fine. No need for the outdated KDE vs Gnome purism wars here.

    This might be easy for developers and seasoned users, but not everybody likes the CLI. For these people the friendly GUI interface of VBox is a life saver. CLI for them is a no go and Virt-manager +...
  12. So far this is just an idea and who says it is...

    So far this is just an idea and who says it is the end of the world. I think it is (with emphasis on is) ludicrous that e.g. Mozilla releases a new version of Firefox and then Linux using people have...
  13. If you have it, why not directly include the link?

    If you have it, why not directly include the link?

    Very much the persons who don't do the work in a distro, I imagine...
  15. This might be true (haven't seen any project yet...

    This might be true (haven't seen any project yet that has tried to make interchangeable parts that plug into systemd as init and services manager), but inclusion of systemd has still been decided...
  16. I'm not advocating anything of the sort. But this...

    I'm not advocating anything of the sort. But this "That doesn't mean though I agree with its design principles, since as a long-time developer, my experience has been that some design-decisions of...
  17. Nope, that is the elusive UNIX philosophy. That...

    Nope, that is the elusive UNIX philosophy. That doesn't say anything about the licensing on the software.
  18. Wasn't that something along the lines of "Show me...

    Wasn't that something along the lines of "Show me the code" and "Share the code"...? The rest is just fortunate, collateral bonus.
  19. Well, not to rain on your parade, but what good...

    Well, not to rain on your parade, but what good does ceaselessly criticizing systemd for existing* do? You might not like it, but who are you? What power do you hold within the various distro's? If...
  20. With which you've just written off the majority...

    With which you've just written off the majority of Windows users. Surfing the web should not be an exercise in dodging malware. Also, permissions are better or not, regardless of installed base.
