    This is really caused by the annoying tendency of Windows to lock files/folders in use (e.g. DLLs and executables). It's part of (probably mostly) the reason Windows needs to reboot. It's very...

    No, you completely missed my point. It's not that Unix-like desktops are imperfect or perfect as they are. Unix-like systems are just different. You work with them differently. It's a little like the...

    Right, this is why I said that the Unix desktop is mostly used to draw a web browser and a terminal. This is how a lot of experienced Unix users use a GUI-based Unix-like desktop.

    And why is...

    I'm not wishing to keep Linux for those using the command line. But it's hard to deny that it was designed to be a Unix-like system and so it's designed to be used with the command line. And it's...

    That's not what I think at all. I'm really trying to point out that Unix-like systems are a completely different OS designed to be used with a completely different (UI). They are a poor substitute...

    I think you're exaggerating. A lot of the most common operations become second nature once you learn the basics. But you do need the man pages for less common operations.

    Well, if you were using Linux like the Unix-like system it is, you wouldn't be using a file browser for much more than visualizing thumbnails.

    Really, nothing beats the command line on Linux. No...

    Linux is one of the easiest Unix-like systems to use!
    But it's one of the worst/hardest Windows-like systems to use though ... That's too bad if you use computers with a Windows mindset.

    True, but at least SCTP is flexible enough to be usable on systems that don't actually implement SCTP. For example, I think Windows' workaround is just abusing UDP to implement SCTP. Not ideal, but...

    What I saw was a post where "current" was in quotes and seemingly intended to have its literal meaning, like a "current release." Except, CURRENT is not that. It is nothing like Android's current...

    Yeah, because no one likes to run an unstable/untested version of FreeBSD with crazy amounts of debugging built-in. Talk about 10x slow experience with system console spam.

    You do know that...

    Wow, that has closer to the legendary Thinkpad keyboard. I might consider that as my next laptop!

    Does the keyboard feel like the original Thinkpad keyboard?

    T and W series now sport an...

    Yeah, it doesn't really make sense to me. I like clang, but I don't hate gcc.

    Maybe they're using some distribution that doesn't package bleeding edge GCC?

    I'll tell you first hand, building...

    Nice! And since Amazon sells things, its main source of income hopefully isn't personal information.

    TeamBlockFox,
    One of the underpinning assumptions in soft updates is that writes reach the disk in order. That way fsck can check for very specific patterns when repairing a file system. But this...

    Pawlerson,
    Don't mention soft updates. It's a nice idea, but soft updates don't work reliably since the disk itself can re-order writes. And needing any sort of fsck (soft updates allows for fsck on...

    I know you're a troll and all, but I'll answer that for everyone else's benefit.

    There are three branches: RELEASE, STABLE and CURRENT.

    CURRENT is a branch for cutting edge development for the...

    I guess FreeBSD is already close to perfect for their applications. Or, the "handful" of commits are actually individually large commits.

    But my guess is that FreeBSD is already perfect.

    The myth is that companies that use FreeBSD don't contribute back to FreeBSD because it's BSDL. The commit log shows otherwise.

    To you sir, HaHa, I win.

    Well, the numbers come from the raw commit data. The committers sometimes wrote "Google", "Google, Inc" or "Google Inc." This is why Yahoo doesn't appear in the list even though Yahoo collectively...
