    Its seems to me that including a Microsoft trademarked logo (parodied or not) is asking for trouble. And even if legal issues don't play out, such behavior doesn't make Linux an easier sell as a...
  2. That's exactly why we NEED to worry. If the...

    That's exactly why we NEED to worry. If the traditional desktop goes back to being a specialized product for a niche market, the pricing and feature set will go back to being out of reach to the...

    Well yes, that's my point. I call for people to boycott Steam as well.

    I don't have a problem with game rental services. But Steam and other similar cloud platforms aren't advertised that way. ...

    This is a terrible idea, and I highly recommend everyone boycott this service.

    When you buy a game (or other piece of software), you should get a copy that you can install and use without further...

    If I remember correctly, there are parts of OpenCL that are covered by software patents, and as a result support for it cannot be completely implimented in Free Software projects that are to be...

    I'm the lead developer of the Nexradix GNU/Linux distro (an Ubuntu derivative), and feel the same way. I have sworn not to add Gnome-Shell or Unity (that Ubuntu is using) as the default interface...
  7. Why on earth do developers continue REMOVING...

    Why on earth do developers continue REMOVING choices for no reason other than "we think people should do things our way"??? I understand not implimenting a feature that they don't care about, or...
  8. I'm not a fan of this at all. First, I see no use...

    I'm not a fan of this at all. First, I see no use in user comments, ratings and the like being part of a software installation app. Those features would be fine on a website, which in conjunction...
  9. I mostly agree (about feeling cheated), but most...

    I mostly agree (about feeling cheated), but most companies do put the software on physcial media, and mail it to you. Which could be a huge added value if you are on dial-up. If someone is just...
  10. I think you're being very unreasonable here. Why...

    I think you're being very unreasonable here. Why on earth would any business go out of their way to point out that something they are selling is available for free elsewhere? Why is "adding value" a...
  11. This is really great news. Since gNewSense only...

    This is really great news. Since gNewSense only updates when Ubuntu releases a long term support version, it isn't a practical solution for those wanting an up-to-date distro. Now one can use...

    Now that LGP is back online, hopefully everyone here will join me in pressuring them to stop releasing games with DRM. If there's one lesson from this debacle, it isn't that you should use RAID...

    This is very sad. While I don't use hardware that old anymore, there's little to no reason to assume that NO ONE will. Typically, first time GNU/Linux users are trying it out for the first time on...

    Try doing a fresh re-install without their activation servers, and you'll get a different result...

    Sure it makes sense -- Free Software isn't about price, it's about freedom. If you distribute a GPL app, regardless of the price or the venue, you must also provide access to the full, corresponding...

    I guess this is where I get to say "I told you so" to everyone that gave me the "DRM isn't so bad if it brings games to Linux" argument back on this thread.

    This situation demonstrates #1 reason...

    MythTV is an amazing piece of software. It's a shame it uses FFMPEG instead of Gstreamer as a backend, making it impossible to legally distribute in the United States due to software patents.
  19. I'll cast another vote for keeping the drivers...

    I'll cast another vote for keeping the drivers outside the kernel. The ability to upgrade a driver without recompiling all of Xorg is a big deal, especially if your distro doesn't ship with the...

    Wow, this is pretty terrible. Non-free software being offered in the installer?? Not to mention the fact that many commercial users don't qualify for a free patent license, and so this new option...
