    Which using a Linux distribution solves how? Clearly most of the "spying" going on is occurring at a level beyond your local machine.

    That's fine. PXE boot is by definition a local installer. In this case you could run PXE, TFTP, and NFS servers on your netbook or another machine. You would download the ISO on your Netbook and...

    This has nothing to do with having a high bandwidth internet connection.

    Gallatin never supported 64 bit, and the first Prescott that did didn't come out until early 2005 (P4 EE 3.73). Even then they weren't in the commodity Prescotts until late summer.

    Intel had next to nothing 64 bit when Vista was released. Atoms released years after Vista didn't support 64 bit. There are plenty of reasons for Microsoft to not have killed off 32 bit with Vista,...

    The mere use of a technology by "thousands of developers" doesn't mean it's either good or well thought out.. By that logic, Windows is better than anything else in the world.

    I'm sorry, but your logic doesn't pass the sniff test.

    The source is out there, go look it up yourself. It's that simple.

    How do you plan on setting up a DNS server if the roots go down? And how do you plan on figuring out the IPs for random servers without the roots?

    Maybe new hardware, but there are millions upon millions of existing systems that are not 64 bit and no distribution is going to drop x86 and alienate those users.

    Every performance gain has a cost. The cost in this case is maintaining a whole third set of libraries on a system. That takes space, development hours, qa hours, and the performance gains have not...

    I have 8 gigs of ram in my machine. At any given time I have at least 6.5 gigs free. If Chrome wants to use a gig of memory by launching each tab as its own process and increase my productivity...

    Sorry, you're drawing lines in the sand which don't exist. Android uses the Linux Kernel. The fact they have their own patches which are not upstream doesn't change this.

    Uh, what kernel does Android use then? And what is the "commonly accepted userland"?

    I'm all for browsers doing their own pdf decoding, but the memory usage is pretty awful. It's a 10 page document with relatively simple graphics (a couple of small embedded images and otherwise just...

    Yeah, I tried to find a blank one provided by the vendor my employer uses but couldn't. It's (the wonderful) Paychex Systems.

    No, I actually won't share the link to my W-2. It's a rather personal financial document. It is not a "form" in that it has data input, however.

    Here's a sample of a different doc, it doesn't...
