Except the polls in Russia show the Russian people swallowing the crap Russia Today spews forth. A majority of Russians now have a positive view on Stalin, possibly because all negative aspects of his reign are being denied and suppressed by Putin and his bum chums.
At the very least there are a large number of different media sites and the US government is not legislating to massively curtail and control the media. Russia, however, is.
Russia Today is quite literally government controlled and run propaganda. Can you honestly make that claim about the US media?
Slashdot's feeding the Russian propaganda sites now?
PhD or not, you're still an idiot.
You're an idiot. There's no strict definition of what a beta release is or how often it can be released and, since everybody has a different way of working and putting out releases, there's no way to compare the number of betas to anybody else that produces any meaningful statistic.
How the hell are you on your way to a PhD? You're describing a motor, not the law of physics that combusting something causes it to expand, causing pressure against its container. If somebody patented "The combustion of fuel causing the resulting pressure to push against an object, therefore causing motion", it might be analogous to a patent on an algorithm.
That would be why they couldn't patent physical principle of fuel-air mixture burning. Instead, they had to patent an engine that used it.
No. Algorithms are the maths. An implementation of the algorithm is the application. However, we already have a system for protecting implementations of algorithms, we call it copyright.
