For me Linux on the desktop came about five years ago.
I have heard that there are going to be new seasons of Trailer Park Boys on Netflix. I may have to renew my Netflix subscription.
Note to the press: "Hackers" doesn't mean what you think is means.
As much as I hate it. I think it is time to surrender the word hacker to the criminals. That is what it means to most of the populus, and changing that many minds is probably impossible. It is time to come up with a new word to describe those of us who like to experiment, and find alternate uses for things.
I throw out experimenter, as one possibility... Discuss.
Where the hell is the reboot?
Can anyone find the reboot command?
How about a shutdown command?
What the hell have they done? I can't shutdown or Reboot?

The machine was for multiple remote users testing on a number of VMs. I could just imagine the hell that awaite me trying to teach endusers to log out cleanly.

I thought we could so with some more ideas though.
I think an all open source version called Flappy Stallman, would be a good start.
Also Flappy ears. In honour of my girlfriends dog, who I am sure will one day lift off while shaking its head.
I often, when reading these sorts of stories, think to myself, "If the business involved do not want french customers then that is their choice."
My response to a "request" of this nature would be one word. "NO!"
Of course I would never be stupid enough to live in Quebec.
