    Which result? The only result that stands out is PostMark, and that could be accounted by reasons other than a regression e.g. if the benchmark is done on different partitions for each OS, then the...

    Enforcement is always less than total. Go and look at Pirate Bay or any of the torrent sites and you will find a shocking amount of pirated content. Yes, we could have the government declare...

    Thousands of copyright cases have been won by non-corporate-monopoly people. It's not that hard - your copyright gets infringed, you go to court and show it, you win. But you might need to pay for a...
