    Debian's idea of "stable" is more than simply "it won't break". The feature set is also stable; you're never going to update your packages and find that the distro or its installed software behaves...

    Most users have no sense of security anyway, and rubbish like secret questions and answers does far more to cause a false sense of security than SHA-1. A theoretically vulnerable algorithm that thus...

    You must not read much news. This is a pretty standard way of reducing characters in article titles. It reads badly but it's not unusual by any means. I used to write news articles and the editors...

    Microsoft needs to hire a new proof reader.



    They've also left markup in there showing previous edits.

    I prefer the MS Office interface but mostly out of familiarity. I still think the...

    Most of them just look like improvements to filesystem path handling.

    I think Valve employees have talked about this as an act of goodwill, but the Steam Subscriber Agreement (the document that actually matters, not an employee's hearsay) does not say anything of the...

    It's debatable whether it's a word. It is in some dictionaries but with a note that it's not considered standard. It doesn't really matter anyway. No word was a word until someone wanted it to be....

    I wish they'd use Qt. Then Firefox would finally honour mouse wheel scroll rate settings specified in KDE, instead of using the broken GTK+ black magic that requires messing with the bowels of...

    Microsoft must have thought it crazy to support OOXML as well. After all, it took them until Office 2013 before even they could create documents conforming to the ISO/IEC 29500 Strict standard.

    The Skype for Linux version number has finally passed the one for the build I run on Windows.
  11. Quality has nothing to do with it. What matters...

    Quality has nothing to do with it. What matters is if it's an imitation; a fake. Maybe you should go look up the definition of "counterfeit".
  12. Counterfeit goods are imitations. An exact copy...

    Counterfeit goods are imitations. An exact copy that is bit for bit identical is not an imitation and so cannot be counterfeit. The correct term is copyright infringement. All other terms are...

    The Windows client is advancing? I waste up to half of the allocated time for my regular meetings dealing with issues with that client. Random changes to the selected microphone and speaker in the...

    It should theoretically run better if you turn off desktop effects, although I don't know by how much.

    Agreed. They should have stopped after they got it printing "hello world".

    Then you'll have people complaining that Firefox looks old because they didn't realise that they could alter the appearance. You can't please everybody.

    I don't mind Australis, but I do wish I could put my bookmarks menu button where it belongs. Currently that space is occupied by the menu button that I rarely use, and which I can't move. I don't see...

    Probably for a decade longer than they'd like to. There is an enormous investment in .NET (along with Java) for LOB software, and we know how often that is maintained. .NET 3.5 SP1 and later are tied...
