    Free Software Foundation also requires such an assignment for some of their projects (e.g. GCC). Just saying.

    Good riddance

    This is actually good news.

    Icaza was the person instrumental in allowing Microsoft to market Silverlight as a cross-platform technology, even though its Linux port called Moonlight is missing...

    Your response essentially says "well but I don't like bundling libraries, there's many of them". Well, you can either use the solution you don't like, but which works and everyone uses it, or keep...

    The problem here is the closed-source driver, not the change in kernel API. Do not upgrade your kernel if your closed-source driver supplier does not support it. If you don't want the driver supplier...

    This meme is getting boring.
    Linux userspace API - the thing you use from programs - is stable, and has always been.
    The only thing not stable is the kernel API, which you use from kernel code....

    Include the Boost libraries in your package and the problem is gone. (This is also the solution used on Windows.)

    100% false. You seem to have little idea what you are talking about.
    Link your application statically or bundle it with the libraries it uses, which is a common practice on Windows. Done.

    Check the power rating. This is woefully insufficient. Moreover it does not really operate 24/7 even if it uses thermal storage, it will generate almost nothing in the winter when the demand is...

    If a leftist / Green politician is your idea of a reliable source on nuclear power, then you are a lost case.

    What is the source of these numbers? These sums are several times the construction costs of all German nuclear power plants. Links to German-only videos are not very useful.

    They could demonstrate in a way that does not require spending lots of money on security.
