I don't like Bill Gates personnaly but, I do agree with the summary of the article : Bill Gates > a Nazi.
The fact that he refused to patent it and waived mountains of money allowed poorer people and third world countries to get rid of polio, otherwise it would still be a threat today!
This is what true heroes should do, work for the betterment of mankind.
Plus I like to think of Mr. Salk as the father of open source, in a vaccine/biology field he gave his receipe for the vaccine for free.
When asked about patenting, he replied : no it's important like the sun,
And one last quick note, 5 years ago I got my polio vaccine and it costed me 9$ !!!!! instead of the 150$ It woulda costed me if a big pharmaceutical had a patent.
Prince just became batshiat senile crazy.
First we need to fine the board of directors sooo much money that they'll have to go to China sell some kidneys on the black market to pay up.
Then we need to lock them up in jail in Yemen for criminal negligence. I mean we do have the memo proving it : http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/archives/2010/05/leaked_bp_memo.php
Making a copy != stealing as the person still has the physical DVD. Stop this propaganda for the MPAA, use the right words : "Made a copy of" instead of : "stealing"
Canonical is now trying to revamp a standard widely accepted for their own benefit of looking easy to understand.
In fact they are pushing usability at the expense of working on functionality so that more user can use something that does less, much like windows. And then Mark Shuttleworth goes on to tell the developers working on functionality that they need a big cup of STFU.
I urge you ppl to switch to another distro, im on Debian right now an everything is fine.
Step #2 : Switch the video format on youtube to H.264, a proprietary format that free browsers can't afford the licenses it needs to distribute a reader for it.
Step #3 : Push H.264 part of the open standard HTML 5, even though it's not open at all, thus further shoving free browsers downward the spiral.
Step #4 : Win the browser War, pwn the internet, make profit with ur browser built in search engine.
We were paying attention....
It goes Dilbert on itself.
This is what happens when people too stupid to do any real work and who've been replaced by a bash script gets promoted to middle management because you can't get rid of them due to union rules and stuff.
You know how they got the management position? A: The parkinson law : Upper management doesn't want their job threatened by a younger, smarter, more active, more educated middle manager, so they promote somebody dumber then themselves and the guy under hires some1 dumber then himself and so on
Uniforms is lack a respect for you tech support guys, uniform is a school's tool to reduce violence and bullying by unifying every1 thus eliminating gangs and groups. It's not for a job place, it's a joke to think about it, if they had respect, they would ask you to wear a suit and a tie, but then you would be in par with ur middle management guy, he is not gonna put you on that level, he is also prolly afraid that you'll write another bash script to replace the middle management positions.
Hey while I think of it, a script that creates and assigns random useless task and complains a lot could replace my boss.
P.S. : Just went to the Firefox download page, along with the green big download Firefox 3.5 button, there is a shit load of links. Believe me, users can stall at nothing, even seeing a shit load of options to click on a web page. Some will try to read them for no reason at all or some reason like, well the thing came up, I read from left to right and up to down, by the time he reaches the middle of the page(Where the button is), he is long gone man.
Imagine your grandmother wishes to install something simple like Firefox :
The windows way:
1. Open IE.
2.Type www.firefox.com(Avoid spyware bars*this is important*)
3. Let's say her browser isin't Highjacked*this part is also important* and it brings you to the right page.
4. Find and download the installer or binaries, not the source, for your operating system, whatever it is, she must know, and sometimes cpu, 32 bits, 64 bits, PowerPC
5.Double click on "FirefoxInstallerWhereEverItIsWhatEverItsCalled.exe"
6.Norton(or other) comes up saying : "running exe files likes this one can harm your computer" All she knows is her computer is farked up enough and does not want to damage it further, she might not install it.....
The Linux way:
1. Open Synaptic
2.Do a search for Firefox in the properly identified search bar, no spyware bars here.
3. Check the box next to Firefox.
4. Press "Apply" : Synaptic automatically downloads and installs and sets the shortcut for for Firefox.
P.S. : Learning about synaptic for user takes about the same time it takes to learn to search google for aps.
So you tell me which way is easyer.
Dell should sue MS for providing them with software containing code patented by someone else in the first place. But no, instead, they are trying to save themselves about 4 hours of testing a Word install and a couple images re-building, what a coincidence that it will also save MS from complying with the law at the same time.
