    If you're going to be snooty about it, add in the 1.4 billion people on Facebook, the 700 million on Snapchat, the 300 million on Twitter, people that play fantasy baseball or fantasy football or...

    It's a network services tool - you didn't really expect them to release it under GPL or AGPL, did you?

    This is way better than nothing. Their previous equivalent services were totally...

    Any language is valuable when used well. I'm not a Python fanatic.

    But to be fair, for decent performance and Python you have two options:
    1. PyPy http://pypy.org/ is, as far as I know, the...

    Good point. With the Nvidia proprietary driver - and only us Linux fans would care about using a proprietary driver - the driver situation is good enough.



    But that was the king of consoles,...

    The last generation of consoles lasted for 7.5 years (Sony) or 8 (Microsoft) years. The PS3 and Xbox360 seem like a joke now, but they had a total of 512MB of RAM each and weaker processors than you...

    I disagree. I think the mainstream market wants the big Xbox and Playstation titles, and only a few of the games you listed are on that list (Bioshock, TF2, Witcher).



    But you can't pretend...

    I think you overestimate the value of quantity over brand recognition. I really think most shoppers aren't going to care that they can buy 1000 different games on Steam if they can't get Mortal...

    Nope, he's a sysadmin and at the time he wasn't a manager. He was doing the work himself and from his laptop he pulled up a list of available Windows Updates, selected the ten that he had already...

    Are you an expert in both?

    I'm only speaking for myself here. I used to work at a tiny company and we had some Windows Servers. I complained to a friend in the technology industry over all of...
  11. I disagree. I think even if SteamOS had a great...

    I disagree. I think even if SteamOS had a great reputation for ease of install and ease of use, most gamers would flock to Windows for the better game selection. I'm about two steps away from being...

    You sure this isn't a day late and it was supposed to be an April Fools joke?

    At first I was surprised, but now that I think about it the decision makes sense for Microsoft.

    Huge companies have...

    I have the general sense that Ubuntu releases before 10.10 were all pretty consistently high quality, but after that point the LTS releases were great and the ones in between less so.

    However, I...

    Unfortunately, the web is moving further and further into a place where pure HTML sites are the exception and not the norm.

    The problem with building a website using the progressive enhancement...

    I've been running Lubuntu 15.04 alpha with systemd as the default for a month. It's been fine. I've hit bugs, but none of them were related to systemd - settings widgets crashed, etc...

    Yeah, I don't understand that complaint at all. I prefer copyleft myself, but I'm still happy to use software licensed Apache, BSD, or MIT. Anything open source trumps proprietary by a million...

    Hey, if it's open source and open specification then it sure beats something like Swift or even Java. I use Java, I don't completely hate it. But I don't like that, for example, the Apache Harmony...

    Most of what they contain isn't obsolete. systemd is still pid one. It still uses parallel launching. It still uses files and sockets for communication. You can still change which components are...

    There are dozens of such articles. Lennart Poettering is the lead developer for systemd, and his own blog is a good starting point: http://0pointer.net/blog/archives.html

    I think his initial...

    Seconded. I've upgraded Fedora using fedup without problems. I've used the Ubuntu software center (GUI tool) to upgrade Ubuntu many times without ever having a problem. One upgrade left me with...
