    And more proof:


    This reveals a deeply ingrained discrimination against women.

    Please do not try to argue that there is no proof of discrimination. The real question is what are we doing to...

    @blackiwid: you asked for proof. Here is a recent study published on this subject:

    "Instructors at 259 US institutions were, on average, more likely to respond to fake email requests for mentoring...

    Pretty much this.


    I think this topic is emotional for many people, which explains why they cannot think logically. It's part loss aversion of the worst kind (feminists are going to steal all our...

    My comment was directed to people saying that women should be paid less because they might get pregnant. That's blatant discrimination and if you support that you are sexist and a shitty human being....

    No, it's $5.5K for the whole duration of the project, not per month. Fact-checking, people!

    Yes, imagine the nerve.

    First they wanted voting rights, then they wanted equal rights, now they want equal pay. When is this going to end? Are we really going to let them emasculate us and take...

    Your voice of reason is appreciated.

    Every second comment here proves how this outreach program is indeed necessary. It is disheartening to see alleged Free software supporters support...

    Linus starts ranting about how difficult it is to distribute software on Linux around 5:35 and again around the 26-27 mark. He describes the exact issue that Lennart is trying to solve.

    The whole...

    This is *certainly* a problem with Debian Jessie, because I don't encounter this on my Arch installation (neither bare metal nor virtual machine, just tested.) Fsck runs correctly and repairs the...

    Runtimes have unstable ABIs *right now*. You have the 20GB strawman today. This proposal will not change anything.

    You should really listen to what Linus has to say about distributing applications...

    If I have to run a closed-source application requiring an outdated version of gtk, then yes, I will sandbox the hell out of it. No network access, an isolated view of the filesystem, the whole...

    This is a real problem. I used to have a closed-source printer driver that could only work with a specific version of libc and gtk1. You get the same problems now if you install closed-source...

    Actually, it's a huge simplification compared to what we have now. Did you read his blog post?

    For example, when installing your LiveCD to disk, you would simply copy the btrfs deltas. That's it....

    As an app and a toolkit dev, you are wrong.

    GTK, Qt and SDL only offer a subset of functionality. To do some things, you must reach out to X, Wayland and Mir directly, and that means you now have...

    GL_ARB_direct_state_access is a big chunk of work, as is GL_ARB_ES3_1_compatibility. The rest are bite-sized chunks and look way simpler than GLSL 400. The big hurdle is OpenGL 4.0, once we hit that...

    Exactly. Hard drives, network controllers, baseband modems, all have embedded processors that can be exploited by a sufficiently motivated attacker. All of those run their own, closed-source code.

    It works just fine.

    The synaptics driver creates a /dev/event* node and libinput opens and reads events from that.

    Indeed, it would be much better if they adopted a more logical scheme, such as 14.07 (July 2014), 15.01 (January 2015), etc. Ubuntu got this right - do you see anyone complaining about their version...

    It appears glibc can be built without NLS. That's worth trying out, the systemd people might accept patches making that work (and indirectly fixing uclibc in the process.)

    Is there really a use case for systemd + uclibc + NLS-less on an embedded platform, or is this just a nice to have option? If NLS is too heavy for a given embedded platform, then I'd expect systemd...
