Hey maybe they should put a camera on the Google car! Then you could see if you were following a truck. Gee I wonder if they can add some cameras to them...
Actually the key at that position was often called "Meta". This was true on early Linux X11 as well. For some reason it was changed to "Super" around 2000, thus breaking a lot of software that assumed it was Meta.
I think you will find a lot of Linux desktops have copied the actions from Windows for the Windows key (Linux calls it the Super key). Super-R for a run box, for instance.
Probably going to be told I am a noob, but:
I have a dual-boot machine. It is an Acer machine and has a legitimate Windows 7 license and I installed Linux, keeping Windows 7 in a resized partition, and occasionally boot into it (it has a bug where it will not boot without a usb keyboard plugged in so I don't do it as often as I thought I would as I have to dig out that keyboard and plug it in). Linux is the default boot. I have no "recovery disk" and I may have lost any paperwork that came with the machine but it is a real legal copy.
So the question is: can I replace 7 with 10? Without damaging the Linux install? If it screws up grub how do I get it back?
He was complaining that Gnome 2.0 removed desktops, and feels vindicated that Microsoft finally added them.
Manual wires are different, and have a lot of costs associated with them. There are people involved, not just data being pushed.
Some lights have separate segments where it's only straight or only left-turn. Pedestrians only have the walk sign during the straight traffic.
True but it is uncommon. It is indicated by a *red* left arrow light. I think that works.
However if there is only a green left arrow light that turns off when opposing traffic starts moving, you are still allowed to turn left, though you have to wait for a gap in the oncoming traffic. For obvious reasons (the driver is looking only at the oncoming traffic) this is when the pedestrians are hit.
I think you meant ODF, not OOXML. But thanks for proving that the name Microsoft chose for their format is purposely confusing!
And that 230k is less than a drop in a very, very, large bucket.
For the company itself, sure. For that particular department, it's probably a serious amount of cash, and is likely to get whoever gets blamed for it in trouble.
This assumes customers will always pay whatever is asked for them. If TW could charge more, they already would.
Also, a tax deduction doesn't mean it's free for them. All it means they get to substract $229,500 from their taxable income. They still have to pay $229,500 out of their pocket.
You are co-opting the term organic to mean something extra.
Reddit was started as an experiment in free speech.
I recall Alex coming on Slashdot a lot to promote Reddit when he first launched it. "An experiment in free speech" was not anything I recall being discussed. I also remember him posting on Slashdot while still developing reddit.
What I recall, is promotion of a general interest platform that was more open than Slashdot (unlimited moderations for all!) and less susceptible to vote brigading than Digg.
It was while ago, so I may be a bit foggy on the specifics.
I think what the Libertarians fail to realize is that farmers, as a general rule, are not smart enough to diversify or maintain course.
First, I think that's a ridiculous assertion. Smart farmers don't diversify because the taxpayers bear the risk of their crop failure, or of crashing prices; they have insufficient incentive to diversify.
Second, if we had a true free market, dumb farmers would go out of business and we would be left with smart farmers allocating resources efficiently. Isn't that the point of economic libertarianism?
Note: I am far from libertarian.
Just curious, since I'm not aware of either cyclical production or crop rotation being a requirement for organic farming (although both are considered best practices).
Wrong. The LGPL license of free Qt allows you to keep the source code to your program secret.
I think it was GPL in the long past but they changed at least 10 years ago.
