    That's the best part of the GPL, in my mind. It's a perfect legal hack - the defendant gains nothing from challenging it, because if they succeed, they lose all the rights it granted them... they're...

  3. They're not patenting binary searches - they're...

    They're not patenting binary searches - they're patenting an application of binary search techniques to a specific problem domain. Which is still ridiculous, because there's a huge amount of prior...

    Why? Which intermediate steps does the browser require, that are not required by a dedicated application? It downloads (streams?) the file in the same way, it decodes it using the same libraries...

    Yeah, that's the *one* thing that I just have to use shell extensions for. Pretty much everything else is fine, but the default Alt-tab behaviour is just crazy...

    So how many of those mainstream users actually care about the kernel version? Assuming they're on Windows or MacOS now - how many of them do you think could tell you the Windows or MacOS kernel...

    Thing is, they're not even visible underneath all the windows anyway, so I need to either switch to a blank workspace, or minimize everything on the current one. And If I'm doing that, it's just as...

    The absence of desktop icons is a good thing... reduces clutter, and discourages me from just dumping everything into one unstructured folder. I've disabled it under Gnome 2 on the old CentOS 5...

    Could be... I use a desktop with standard USB keyboard and mouse, which I suspect is a pretty well-tested scenario...

    Didn't notice that on F21... the broken drag-drop was the only significant problem I encountered, in a week of trialing Wayland.

    That one's coming along slowly. I believe the solution was to have some of the core libraries built against both Gtk versions, so that the browser itself could use Gtk3, and the (out-of-process)...

    You don't even need an extension - despite all the fuss, Gnome supports minimize just fine, out of the box. The only thing it doesn't do is include a visible Minimize button - you have to right-click...

    It's not really an older technology, this one... more of an experimental one, the Google prototype for what became HTTP 2.0.

    Well, it doesn't need *many* extensions, but yes - without Alternate Tab, it's basically unusable.

    The default alt-tab behaviour is just too complex... it won't jump to a different window of the...

    Two people with the same name ("Luke" and "Luke_Wolf") does get kind of confusing like that.
  16. CentOS was never really an "alternative"...

    CentOS was never really an "alternative" anyway... it's major selling point was that it was 99.9% identical to RHEL, but completely free of cost. If it had diverged too much, they would have lost...

    It requires one command line switch now, while all the doubled-up infrastructure is in place to maintain both. Nobody wants to maintain that long-term... it's only sustainable for one release cycle,...

    Development might not be fueled by a need for market share, but it's success has to be. In Perl 5, you had a scripting language that absolutely dominated the UNIX world, but it stagnated - they've...

    Exactly. Giving someone a 10k line code drop sounds like a good thing - but if they accept that gift, there's an expectation that they're going to keep it working forever. It's like giving someone a...

    I don't follow GCC development as closely as I do Gnome, but yes, sort of.

    Except that I don't recall that Gnome was strongly associated with the FSF even in the beginning. It may have fallen...
