  1. The license says "Do whatever you want with this....

    The license says "Do whatever you want with this. You don't have to give back, or even allow the original code base to run on your hardware." If you find the result unsatisfactory, it may be time to...

    I disagree. The Linux desktop is and always has been used by fans only. Canonical is dying, having shot itself in the foot, the groin, and the heart. (So long, Unity.) The Gnome Shell (but not core...
  3. If one desktop segfaults due to "hardware...

    If one desktop segfaults due to "hardware related" problems, and the other desktops have incorporated work-around patches, then it's still a bug in the desktop. Pointing fingers at the hardware...
  4. [QUOTE=liam;238469]OK...I was joking about the...

    I really don't see that buying a desktop support contract from a remote entity makes a lot of sense in any case. My desktop clients are all local. Most everything can be done remotely. But sometimes...

    I'll send you a set of flame-retardant underclothing as an early Christmas gift. I've found a brand that works really well. ;-)

    I'm not completely convinced that SysV Init is really flawed. At any rate, boot speed is not really a reason to move to something different. Readahead fixed its one performance problem years ago. If...

    I can't believe I'm stepping up to the plate for Hans. But here I am. Surely, contact with the OSS community, and a means of putting his talents to use, is more rehabilitative than simply living in a...

    Oh. Thank you. The Flying Spaghetti Monster and the Great Juju at the Bottom of the Sea both say that they forgive you, too. (Not to name-drop or anything, but I'm having a small dinner party...

    Let's just say that the majority of Linux users are not going to be using systemd.



    Doubtful. Upstart is mature, and has benefited from years of experience in the field. It has the capability...

    Wow. I've really offended you, haven't I? Ah, Linux! Sometimes it seems more like a religion than an operating system. Not only does one have to worry about offending the christians^W^W Linux users....

    Because it is.



    That's really where the problem lies. Fedora fans tend to pitch Fedora as a distro like any other out of one side of their mouths, and as the cutting edge knight of Linux...

    Just wait 30 years. And you'll get yours! ;-)

    Seriously, though. Enjoy the next 30 years. Being 48 is cool and all. But one of the things you learn is that you can never go back. Partially because...

    What color is the sky on your planet?



    Race conditions and deadlock. The Upstart devs experimented with this admittedly attractive idea. But it turned out to be something of a bug minefield....

    Oh. Well, that's cool. Please forgive me for being in "aggressive mode" today. ;-)



    I think pretty much everyone does. When it's ready. But to be honest, I'm not champing at the bit. EXT4, with...
  15. Oh, and BTW, have you seen the latest from Hans?...

    Oh, and BTW, have you seen the latest from Hans? It's a 117 page hand-written motion, in the form of a rant, demanding a new trial. In it, he accuses the entire state of California of being a "hive...

    What is it, exactly that you are calling anecdotal evidence? R4 got a mini code review and came out badly. But any R4 devs which might remain have a clear, if partial, list of unacceptable problems...

    Computer use, and particularly Internet use, is forbidden in prisons for obvious security reasons. He may be coding with pencil and paper. But that's a pretty severe impediment. Even if he were...

    That's a pretty open-ended out you left yourself there. NetworkMangager falls in to that category of software that I label "I'm smarter than you". It unilaterally makes decisions for you. (Though I...

    Rav,

    You're really not doing any service to R4 by trash talking other filesystems and making unverifyable claims about them. It just makes you seem defensive. The kernel devs gave you guys a clear...

    What I find myself wondering is *why*? This is not some new tranistory condition. KDE has been segfaulty at least back to KDE3. Maybe KDE2. I can't remember. Is it an underlying QT problem, I wonder?
