    Or has possibly announced the official release before it's actually occurred. Wouldn't be the first time he's jumped the gun a little...

    Well, that somewhat depends on the screen you're using. If you're running a 40" TV like these benchmarks, then yeah, the PPI isn't much better than a standard monitor. But if you're running a 24"...

    Yep... they recovered mostly by spreading into a new untapped market. But they've continued with the same approach of trying to retain total control, and as a result, they're losing out to rivals....

    Not dissimilar to the old days of PCs, really. Apple remained somewhat exclusive, combining hardware and software, and keeping both under their control. Whereas Microsoft, sticking to a software...

    Yes, that's why I said that. SHA-1 hashing isn't considered good enough for crypto these days, because finding collisions has become relatively computationally cheap, and the ability to deliberately...

    Well, that's certainly more honest about it than most mainstream media... :)

    It's considered unsuited for crypto, but that doesn't mean it's not a perfectly adequate hashing algorithm for other purposes.

    But does it make sense to build the entire system around that contingency - that the admin doesn't have a bootable USB stick already sitting on his desk, doesn't have the ability to download one...

    Remember that single-user mode only had that very minimal set of binaries, the barest set of tools that could be used for doing repairs? That's the difference... on a bootable image, I've got access...

    If somewhat obsolete. If I ever needed to recover a trashed /usr and /var (and I never have), I'd just boot off a flash drive, and use that - a fully functional desktop with access to the internet if...

    So where are the competing visions - and more importantly, the people doing the work to support those competing visions?

    Because that's how the system works - you don't change the world by...

    Yeah, that's a good example. The point is, the binary form might not be human readable, but like any good database, it's optimised for searching for the entries your interested in. And if you just...

    They're binary for much the same reason that databases are binary - because while grep and sed are great tools for searching through text files, they're kind of clumsy when you want to do things like...

    Problem is, the "community" is all the people you've just said you don't trust, among others. The "community" is all the people who are currently working contrary to your version...

    It doesn't have a hard dependency on systemd - it has a dependency on published interfaces for which systemd is the only provider.

    Some of the Debian people did put some work into providing a shim...

    Sure, but that "so long as" you mention is a pretty big qualifier. If you have a task that's infinitely parallelizable and doesn't require much communication between instances, then a cluster is...

    It doesn't need to be 4x more powerful to justify it. If someone simply needs the fastest cores they can get their hands on, it's irrelevant that AMD has a better price/performance ratio if AMD can't...

    Are you volunteering to do the work required to implement PPAPI support in Firefox? Because I understand that's pretty much the sticking point - nobody is interested in performing a substantial...

    The inti system doesn't. The basic network-setup system that's packaged alongside the init system does.

    Why would this be a "powerful incentive"? It might be a useful thing to have, but it's certainly not a killer feature to compel Intel to spend money on writing new drivers from scratch.
