Nah, everyone else is just pretending not to get it.

Rather oblivious attitude you have toward jokes there, are you sure you're not missing a sense of humour?
"Research Says Plastic Bag Bans Might Be Killing People"
There. No more title that's phrased as a refutable question, and the title still makes for a compelling story.
And then you wouldn't have learned anything. Congratulations.
Point 1 doesn't really hold up well because companies expect DRM not to last. What's important is how long it lasts before it's broken.
Well-designed software makes good use of the extra horizontal space.
I have an 1080p resolution wedged into an 18.4" laptop screen. Have fun with that (I raised the DPI setting, needless to say, but that still doesn't make pictures bigger).
More like "Enjoy your 60 frames per second, but it might not work!"
The issue with Wine is not performance, but that some software simply may not run. Compatibility is getting better and better, though.
Good companies find clever, interesting ways to advertise.
Bad companies stick with annoying banner ad type stuff.
The only ones in any possible "jeopardy" are the bad companies. People will *find* the good ones. So if anyone's going to sue, it's just the ones with a bad marketing model.
You can fully expect something to break when you run an unstable release of Wine. Because it's an unstable release If it's for your kid, just stick with a stable (oor the current working) release and don't change it unless you know for sure the game will keep working with a new release.
I'm kind of curious about the bug report. Last I checked, most Wine devs don't seem all that arrogant to me. A bit too expecting, sometimes, maybe...
It's not that there's no market - I'm seeing plenty of people buying Steam games and trying out the Linux version. It's just that the market is small to the point where it could almost be considered "niche". Initiatives like Steam's just show why it doesn't have to be.
I don't think the term lost its weight. Most people (in my opinion) seem to very well know the difference between friends and [Facebook] friends. Facebook just used the wrong term for the entire thing. I just call them contacts.
Regarding your point a, running a script on a sever in another state could be exactly that, couldn't it? (Not that I know if it *is*, mind you. IANAL and all that.)
I loce Linux
Completely unrelated to your point, but... Switching the c and v, was that intentional?
