Yeah, it's definitely "fresh and new". As in having over 2000 of its own "fresh and new" issues. All Servo has done is trade one set of bugs with its own set.
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).
Google will help us fully realize our vision of the conscious home and allow us to change the world faster than we ever could if we continued to go it alone.
Said the NSA Director who absolutely loves the new surveillance avenues these devices will open up.
Cool spinmeistering, brah. But all I hear is someone making up excuses for why Ubuntu phone will have less developers and fewer apps than even Windows Phone. And that's no small accomplishment.
OpenBSD is what I obviously meant.
And to head off the obvious rejoinder, yes, their private key can be compromised to allow an attacker to sign malicious packages. But if that is a genuine concern, why would you possibly trust the security of the SSL connection to their site?
If this doesn't need some way to ensure that I really connect with it instead of an intercepting mitm that injects its own version, what does?
In what universe do you live in that SSL prevents a MITM attack? MITM attacks exist in order to allow an attacker to monitor and modify your supposedly "secure" connections. You ensure that what you downloaded is what you meant to download by using the signify utility as mentioned on the page and verify that the package you download was signed by the OpenSSL devs.
That's funny, I didn't realize that programs such as Autocad, Autodesk Sketchbook, Pixelmator, Adobe Lightroom, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Pinnacle Studio, etc. were for consuming content. They seem to be for creating content to me. That isn't even scratching the surface of all the content creation apps that exist for iOS.
No, it's a grammar issue. Breath is a noun. So "to breath" is grammatically incorrect.
Exactly. This guy lives in some sort of bizarro world Rubyist bubble. Sure, there is probably some guy's toy project to use Ruby in some sort of faux embedded environment, but that hardly matches what is done by the actual people writing the software.
IP address != person
Maybe in less than 1% of cases. All the rest of the time, the only one using the IP address is the person who pays for the internet access.
So it's reasonable anonymous if you consider your identity.
It's only reasonable if you think shoving your head in the sand gives you reasonably anonymity.
Their product was only "better" because their competitors at the time only had crap products. Not to mention that smartphones were a tiny niche product during the heyday of the BlackBerry. The global sales of smartphones during that time was about 1/20th of what they are now. It's easy to be the biggest fish when the pond is small.
There are plenty of better languages to learn over Ruby if people need to learn the "basics of the industry". Ruby is only marginally more popular than moribund languages like Delphi.
Ruby needs all the help it can get. 19 years later and it's only marginally more popular than Delphi. And that language has been moribund for around a decade.
I've done C# programming for 6 years and have never had any issues finding documentation and examples from MSDN. Do you have a specific example of what you have been unable to find documentation on?
