    Here follows an exaggerated statement from me, that contains my sarcastic summary of almost all comments about GNU/Linux "not being ready for the desktop", and which contains within it a grain of my...

    Silly Linus, trying to force me into having a Google account just to vote on issues relating to the Linux Kernel.
  3. Very interesting, I guess my attention span is...

    Very interesting, I guess my attention span is slipping, as I wasn't aware that there was a truly active development project for the rPi's GPU in the FOSS world. I think the big question (especially...

    I think one of the major goals of the FSF doing this kind of endorsement is to create a PR "incentive" for current hardware manufacturers to make a new device which fits the endorsement's...

    It's only really big, bloated, proprietary applications that take enough effort to learn the UI for to warrant describing it as a "skill".

    >(Outdated)
    Yes, Michael, we get it - you don't care about the FSF's definition of freedom, and think it's silly. It's not their fault that newer hardware is rife with proprietary microcode required...

    I don't know; I quite like how simple LibreOffice documents look, when using the default Text Styles, and the Liberation fonts. And while I can't speak for the Windows or OSX versions, the interface...

    I have to say, I'm really disappointed to hear about the RAM being soldered to the motherboard. It's like Lenovo don't want me to upgrade from my X220 /w IPS screen and mSATA SSD... Which is a shame,...

    This "argument" is a waste of everyone's time. We have hardworking, talented people gutting out the ancient mplayer(2) codebase, making it sane (and more efficient!), correcting its implementations...

    Hmm, well I'm more looking for which hardware (presumably a list of engineering or marketing names?) can actually use BAPM, but I suppose it's interesting that the *bug* which was fixed was mostly...

    I have tried searching for a definitive list of hardware which can utilise this BAPM featureset, but my SEO must be rusty, as I have failed. Is there anyone who knows of such a list, and is willing...

    With respect, I'm pretty sure that being able to release a kernel package which runs on entirely 100% Free Software exactly fits into the definition of "Productive" as far as the GNU project and the...

    Again, I was satirising the position which is being taken against the (actually harmless) title of this article, not genuinely suggesting that you should not be expressing your opinion.

    Frankly, I find the fact that you think I should self-censor to be deeply offensive. I trust you'll keep your hateful, offensive, bigoted opinion secret from now on? [/satire]

    Or, not. Freedom of...

    Usually not. So? I fail to see where you established that this necessarily implies hatefulness of any kind.


    People tacitly assume that whatever they are is "normal", and so will usually only...

    I wasn't calling *you* a bigot in that first line - I was lampooning the position of those who accuse people of racism and bigotry for mere trifles.

    Nope, don't see the problem. Maybe it's because I lack an underlying association of "pointing out someone's black/gay/female/chinese" with "being those things is bad". It's just things they are.

    This is pretty shameful - if you want free commercial games at least have the decency to pirate the Windows version and submit bug reports to Wine. :P
