    Hear, hear. I fail to understand why whenever there's some advancement in technology -- like more mobile cores, or 4K screens on tablets and laptops -- someone always has to bitch about it. "No one...

    Linux is cheaper than Windows. Go to http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing/ and compare the per-hour pricing of Linux to the per-hour pricing of Windows. Huge difference, especially for the larger...

    I was joking that using the toilet sink is optional, just like how using many of systemd's components is optional (mentioned earlier in the thread, or in a different thread, I dunno; every systemd...

    But it's optional! You don't have to use it if you don't want to! :)

    Can you provide some examples of such nonsense?

    Also -- did you read the linked article from The Tech Report? Here's a quote from that article's conclusion:

    But it's all just fake superstitious bullshit. Like someone claiming the Ubuntu launcher icon swirled the "wrong" way.

    Not sure this is really a problem these days. Modern SSDs can last a lifetime.

    I have a three year old ThinkPad T520 containing a 1920 x 1080 panel. Soon I'll be replacing it with a T550 containing a 2880 x 1620 (3K) panel. Seems not backwards to me. Although I wish Lenovo...

    Can you talk about this some more? I've wondered for a while now whether { initrd | initramfs } is really necessary these days. I'd be interested in learning if there are advantages to not having it...

    And this is my major problem with the T540. My T520 has an excellent keyboard:

    The T540, a logical upgrade for me, has this abomination:

    Speaking of crashes and freezes, I can reliably freeze my ThinkPad T520 using a USB headset with any VoIP software (no crashes if using a headset plugged into the 1/4" jack). There is no consistent...

    Kubuntu won't switch to Mir.

    If I'm interpreting this correctly, it looks like HPET is the clocksource early during boot, but then it gets switched to TSC.

    Kubuntu 14.10:

    Yeah, I'm curious about this, too. I mean, we already have these toolkits that render window frames and buttons and menus and all that. Why is it preferable to use HTML for this purpose?

    I have a Fire TV and rather like it. So why would I need a Fire TV Stick as a companion?

    Anyone else seeing a problem where the driver thinks you have multiple monitors when you actually don't?

    My ThinkPad T520 has a GF119M (Quadro NVS 4200M) chip. I've disabled the Intel graphics in...

    I tested it for about a minute on YouTube and it seems to work fine. Wrote up some instructions for folks on Kubuntu Forum (where I'm an admin).

    That's an overbroad generalization. Not all PPAs are alike. I've been using the Xorg Edgers PPA for years and it's never been the source of problems.

    The package kdesdk-dolphin-plugins in many distros will add little sqaures on the lower left corners of icons in your Dropbox folder.
