    It's only 'theft' in the same way that 'copyright theft' is a thing. You don't have any less of it because someone else copied it. But I think it will inevitably happen anyway., and I'd prefer not...

    So the act of writing and freely licensing software is not enough; it requires more charity and yet more lawyers in order to enforce it.

    If enforcement is anything less than total, you're giving...

    GPL was a great idea, but forgets that law only really works in favour of corporate monopoly anyway. They can't be beaten at their own game. And some of the scariest establishments operate beyond...

    It's been the default in Debian sid/jessie for over a year? And still it's the cause of many release-blocker issues there; it's caused some users and developers to leave that distro. Ubuntu plan...

    How is this decluttered UX trend making things simpler or easier to use?

    Where's the applications menu on here? Oh, move the mouse way up into the top left corner, of course.

    Ah yeah, shame about the non-free license.

    But just look at that, ah the memories, doesn't it make you feel warm and fuzzy:

    I get the feeling that, due to new bugs, or systemd no longer being configurable to do exactly as the user wants - people that today are saying it works fine for them, will slowly get frustrated with...

    What for-profit software company would pay to bring people to software freedom? Why would these companies pay to make their GNU/Linux distro more attractive to users, unless they plan to capitalise...

    1502110-LI-RASPBERRY41 (Arch) is listed twice, instead of the Debian Jessie benchmark?

    I meant that it has kept providing the original apps, as of the latest release it hasn't substituted them for Google services.

    my own experiences, YMMV:

    So, back on topic...

    The take-away from the talk is that in Hurd, the kernel is doing as little as possible, so subsystems like filesystems just run in userland (like normal software) and as...

    Performance-per-Watt for 750Ti looks amazing here.

    But I refuse to run a non-free driver, so I'd love to see this working on the open-source drivers someday, then get benchmarks of those. And a...

    Valve's talk at DebConf14 mentioned working directly with some upstream projects, like Mesa I think was given as an example. This sort of thing filters into most GNU/Linux distros eventually (some...

    SteamOS built a console gaming platform out of Debian. But why pretend to be a dumb console, mimic its limitations, the fiddliness of its UI and hide its inner workings. Knowing that the hardware...

    To adjust the system clock - we can't let just any user do that. Most systems have a way for NTP to do that after dropping from root to a lesser-privileged user (e.g. /dev/clockctl on NetBSD).

    FreeBSD devd sounds exactly like acpid in that events can run scripts or other executables, which is a very simple interface and allows tons of flexibility to do what you want. Debugging is easy as...
