    I'm the last man on earth to protect DRM, I hate it.
    ... and yet, everybody, including RHEL has some form of it (including my company) due to pricing / licensing / support considerations.

    RMS is surely entitled to his own opinion and I respect that.
    I don't believe in a black and white approach.
    On one hand, in the last 15 years I moved dozens of *large* projects from Windows...

    Last time I checked, neither RMS nor Linus preached in favor of software piracy in-order to "persuade" ISV's for open up the DRM used by their software.
    Either my English has gone down the drain or...

    +100.
    Far worse, it sends a huge do-not-support-Linux-because-most-Linux-users-are-cheap-and-refuse-to-pay-for-software message.
    The *last* thing Linux users need is rampant piracy in this name of...

    Weird.
    Just re-checked, running google earth under gdb, and it is indeed a pure 64bit binary.

    Might I suggest something else?
    *Buy* the DRM version and "install" the liberated version.

    ... Unless DRM is just an excuse to stealing - and surely its not, right?

    FWIW, Dead Island can be...

    Huh?!?!
    $ file /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin
    /opt/google/earth/free/googleearth-bin: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for...

    *All* run ChromeOS.
    Some also run crouton. FWIW the one that I use daily is completely stock. *, **



    ... So I gave you a case in which people that *are* using stock Chromebook needing ext4......

    I use a Chromebook and use ext4 on USB devices. We also have a number of of Chromebooks at work, again with ext4 USB devices.
    A couple of things:
    A. I think Google's decisions was wrong but not...
  10. I've upgraded around 40 machines and VMs (32bit...

    I've upgraded around 40 machines and VMs (32bit VMs up to 4S servers) from 19 to 20, with minimal effort. Granted my anecdotal evidence doesn't negate yours, but it makes me wonder if I was purely...

    Log0 wasn't being rude.
    As he pointed out, our eyes are not linear devices - read: you may not notice the difference between 0x00fe0010 and 0x00ff0011 (different shades of red with a touch of blue...

    I keep seeing this, but my own experience completely contradicts the above.
    Any benchmarks to share?

    FWIW we have proprietary software that can handle ~120HD/160FD Gbps. DPDK can reach ~200FD...

    system-config-lvm or gnome-disk-utility.
    The former has no issues handling anything you can throw it at (including weird combinations of LVM, MD-raid and Luks), but was deprecated during F18 and is...

    OSS is a social experience. It is *not* democracy, it is a meritocracy [1].
    You can contribute code, you can contribute patches, you can contribute bug reports and QA time, you can contribute bug...

    Ever heard the term "false sense of self importance"?
    In the OSS world, those who "do", get the make all the decisions.
    Those who talk, get to "spout" (your word, not mine) their no-so-important...

    We are talking about a GUI for a disk management library.
    If they had taken the time to rewrite the code, library and UI in C/C++, it would have been, what, 2% faster?

    Fedora uses Python + GUI for the past decade +.
    I personally use it write the management UI front-ends to in-kernel modules.
    I fail to see what's wrong with this combination. (PyQT is no better,...

    I would imagine they made a design decision not to support it - at least not initially.
    I'd venture and guess that least of which is due to the obvious fact that NTFS support is limited to...

    OSS projects tend to love slow gradual change and dislike large disruptive changes (E.g. SELinux-enabled-by-default, Systemd-enabled-by-default, PA-enabled-by-default, KDE 4, GNOME 3, Anaconda-NG,...

    Poor RedHat developers wrote a tool to cater for the million of RHEL and Fedora users, but left pali out.
    Guess they'll have to rewrite the troll from scratch just for you.
