  1. I wasn't going for an exact classification

    I think you can argue which goes into what category. I haven't run Arch, but I've encountered a lot of fanatical Arch users so I assume that it's shockingly stable despite riding the cutting edge.
  2. close

    Not quite. You and I agree that the constant changing Linux releases is a problem.

    But to try to clarify my point further, I'm saying that ultra-long-term-support Linux releases only make sense...
  3. Some metro apps are just an API layer + HTML5

    Some of the Windows app store applications are developed entirely in HTML plus Javascript. See https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/br211385.aspx

    So even if Wine can't offer a...
  4. Calm down, it's not confirmed yet. Even people...

    Calm down, it's not confirmed yet. Even people who care nothing for Linux or open source are accustomed to not paying a monthly or yearly operating system license fee for their Windows PC, Mac,...
  5. I hate that saying, because it's deceptive. I...

    I hate that saying, because it's deceptive. I pay a monthly fee to Verizon for my phone and Comcast for my internet, I pay interest to my credit card company, I pay for my groceries, and I pay for...
  6. I thought systemd was default for 16.04 but not confirmed as default earlier?

    I thought Canonical confirmed that systemd would be default for 16.04 but they had not yet announced whether it would be default for 15.04 or 15.10.

    Resume the biggest nerd flamewar of 2014 in...
  7. I know Steam and Chrome update themselves...

    I know Steam and Chrome update themselves automatically, regardless of the core operating system. But I was more concerned with the video card drivers and Mesa you need to get a better experience...
  8. stability only matters when you have feature parity

    The problem is that Linux Desktop users want to be able to do as much of the things they can do on Windows or OS X as possible. I could run Debian stable or RHEL 5 right now, but if I want...
  9. Competition never hurts, right? I still have the...

    Competition never hurts, right? I still have the sense that Wayland development speed only shifted into high gear after Canonical announced Mir. So even if the only benefit to ever come from Mir...
  10. I've been around the site longer than you, though...

    I've been around the site longer than you, though not as active on the forums, and I don't see nearly the same anti-BSD comments as anti-GPL. So unless you provide more evidence, I say you're...
  11. Really? You said "LOL. You mean like the...

    Really?



    You said "LOL. You mean like the GPL zealots continually attacking other licenses for not respecting their freedom? Are you that deluded?" and "Except that is exactly what RMS is...
  12. Did any GPL zealots chime in on this thread...

    Did any GPL zealots chime in on this thread attacking BSD? I think all of us FSF fans have been posting defenses against attacks on our use of the word 'freedom' in association with the GPL -...
  13. Right. And the right to use everyone else's...

    Right. And the right to use everyone else's derivatives is arguably a more valuable or more important freedom, depending upon your goals, than the right to use the code in a proprietary product.
  14. My point is that freedom requires rights. ...

    My point is that freedom requires rights.


    So GPL is not totally free, and BSD is not totally free, so therefore GPL is not a correct use of the word freedom and BSD is a correct use of the...
  15. Freedom is restricted to give rights, not...

    Freedom is restricted to give rights, not freedom.

    Rights are part of the fundamental definition of freedom. You can't have freedom unless you have rights. If you have the freedom to reuse text...
  16. But the CC "attribution" license is basically the...

    But the CC "attribution" license is basically the literature, art, music, and film equivalent to the LGPL. The CC "attribution share-alike" license is basically the literature, art, music, and film...

    Good post.


    So by that logic Creative Commons is not freedom either, right?

    Sorry, wrong.
  18. 1. You are making broad statements that are...

    1. You are making broad statements that are impossible to prove. There are thousands of GPL-licensed software products. Some are awesome. Most are awful. But that's also true of many BSD, MIT,...
  19. So it's not a GCC problem itself, just an...

    So it's not a GCC problem itself, just an artifact of the way the libstdc++ packaged with GCC is also the system one? (Of course, most of the time that kind of default behavior would make sense.)
  20. BSD license: this thing is free for you to do...

    BSD license: this thing is free for you to do whatever you want with it
    GPL license: this thing is free for everyone, and you can do whatever you want with it, as long as you don't restrict everyone...
