    I've never understood this "thin" fad with laptop computers. Who cares how thin or thick it is? What practical difference does it make? It seems to be a style-based decision, putting fashion...

    Sounds like you were using free hobbyist community distros. An odd choice for someone who's concerned about time. Those are for folks who like to tinker.

    I use Linux because I value my time,...

    My first was Slackware 2. Big old pile of floppy disks. I was so excited when Slackware 3 was released and was available on CD-ROM. In fact, I even still have the discs, part of the November 1995...

    Agree on the no need for a committee meeting, but Kodi sounds either like a pet name, or a hippy earth-child name.

    Neither is something I associate with multimedia software. 'Kodi' is going to...

    I agree, I have no desire to share services that I've paid for with freeloaders off the street. Especially since their online activities, nefarious or otherwise, can now be traced back to my IP...

    Fair enough, you have some strong points. It sounds like Shield has more drawbacks than I was aware of.

    Of course the target demographic isn't identical. But there is significant overlap I think. The Pandora was marketed as being primarily for playing vintage video games using console emulators. A...

    IMO I prefer retro gaming on my living room TV. And for that purpose, the Ouya console fills the niche perfectly, with excellent performance and a real gaming controller. And at only $99, you can't...

    Eh? OpenELEC works really well on the Pi, and plays my entire movie collection @ 1080p beautifully. Best bang-for-your-buck media center PC out there is the Pi + OpenElec.

    Yes, you get more performance on a quad core vs. a quad core with HT. This assumes a hypervisor+VM workload. The same holds true with other CPU-bound operations like video transcoding.

    Agree 100%. Seeing this "alcohol propaganda" in an article about computing gives it a fun feel, and is a welcome addition. There are far more exciting things in the world than computing, after all,...

    "Affordable" is a relative term. It means different things to different folks. If you've ever bought a used car, you'll recognize this language, "runs great", "really clean", "excellent condition"....

    I lost interest after "G", lol. My WRT54GS still serves my needs just fine. The only thing I use wireless for is casual web browsing from the couch. Home servers and such are on Cat5e.

    Also,...

    At least here in the US, Linksys brought the original Linux based WRT54G back, with original large memory size, due to popular demand. They called it WRT54GL, I guess the "L" is for Linux. It is...

    Lol! But seriously, I wonder why they thought it needed 1.2 Ghz, 128 MB flash, and 256 MB ram? DD-WRT Mega, the largest one, runs marvelously on a WRT54GS with just ~200 Mhz, 8 MB of flash and 32 MB...

    I just patched all our production RHEL servers today. The fixed version is still version 1.0.1e on RHEL6. Red Hat implemented a fix and did not increment the OpenSSL version number.

    Whining? Really? Because it affects hardware that I actively use? How does the problem 'not exist'? Because it doesn't affect you, it 'doesn't exist'? You're probably not familiar with how...

    Well this is unfortunate. One of the benefits of Linux, to me at least, is being able to run a modern OS on unique vintage hardware. I've got an SGI VW540, fully loaded with Quad Xeons and 2 GB of...
