Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Are we really supposed to be rooting for the people who will only share if they get something in return, and will intentionally make things difficult to try to get their way? That's hardly the noble cause they make it out to be. And then when LLVM tries to be as easy to use as possible and doesn't ask for anything in return, they belittle it.
Also, deliberate bugs and backdoors simply wouldn't be checked back in.
More different browser engines is a good thing.
Monoculture has bad consequences.
Seriously, do people tell themselves that Chrome and Safari aren't competing with each other or something? Are we just supposed to ignore the fact that innovation and competition have been fierce and that web development has never been easier, out of irrational fears of "monocultures"?
Sounds like that road has better odds and less work, and you don't even have to die!
