Well, if you insist on calling both the kernel and the distributions for "Linux" you are going to have to be perfectly clear on what you are talking about if you want to avoid misunderstandings.
I think you misunderstand the controversy about GNU/Linux. Noone is saying that the kernel in question should be called GNU/Linux. Stallman, however, insists that distributions should be called GNU/Linux when appropriate, which I think the GP was referring to.
Linus Torvalds is much more productive than you. He uses Linux. You should definitely switch.
To be fair, Linus Torvalds uses a MacBook Air. Though he probably has linux on it.
The increased address space is not the important part of the ARMv8 64-bit architecture in this case.
Instead it has twice the number of general purpose registers (31) with twice the size (64 bit) than that of the previous ARMv7 architecture. It also has 32 x 128 bit vector registers, which again is doubled. This allows for more data being processed at the same time, and also saves a bit on memory accesses, which are horribly slow. There are also other improvements such as built in AES encrypting and SHA hashing instructions.
They don't last more than a few months for me. I'm on my fifth pair. And they charge me 25 fucking pounds for each replacement. And they sound terrible.
Just out of curiosity, why do you keep buying them?
You are of course correct. They use the "device attached" pin of the USB port with a specific resistor to switch the USB data lines into two analog audio outs.
While this is a cool hack, it still suffers from a few limitations that the apple dock connector doesn't have. It can't do analog in at the same time (think microphone input for a car handsfree), or video, or simultaneous USB data transfer, to name a few things.
Also, this is not part of the USB standard, which means the cable only works with certain phone models, and can actually make other devices misbehave. Try connecting a Galaxy Nexus to that cable.
Yes, but you can't do analog audio over micro USB. It is not the same thing. Making a sound-dock for USB is much more complex and expensive.
That would be Mountain Lion of course...
You can resize by dragging the top edge in OS X Snow Lion. I'm not sure if it's new for this version though.

the greatest work station epiphany i recently had involved turning my 9:16 monitor 90 degrees
So that it became an ordinary 16:9 screen?
This is where the Magic Mouse shines in my opinion.
But you have to use Better Touch Tool or other software to really make it useful, because OS X's built-in gestures are just not enough.
I use two and three finger swipes and "tip-taps" to open/close tabs, navigate back/forward, turn up/down volume etc in addition to just scrolling. Best mouse I've ever had!
I saw this as a feature!
I used to create sinus-tables for use by my assembler code by using Amiga-Basic.
Just do a for-loop, use the built-in sin(), and poke the result into a (hopefully) free memory-location. Then switch to the assembler/monitor and dump the memory back to either assembly notation or raw data to be written to disk. Quick and easy.
