There are technical reasons for it, but if you really want to clear your history of editing you can always do this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
It is not a sign of a cult.
Wouldn't that break every time a Windows Update comes through?
I haven't heard of this behavior before. That would prove problematic I'd think
Wine is a compatibility layer for Windows applications. It must emulate all of Windows' bugs and undefined behavior to the best possible extent, even containing a whole bunch of case statements to change its behavior when different versions of Windows are set via winecfg (not unlike Windows' own compatibility mode, which tends to just have every version of every DLL ever in WinSxS to solve the problem...).
To Wine, Windows bugs are features, and applications depend on them. Maybe it will never be perfect, but Wine's philosophy is basically "If it works in Windows, it should work in Wine" -- even if that comes down to an application running in Windows 95 but not later versions, Wine will try its best to keep that Windows 95 app running, even if you have to set the Windows version to 95 via winecfg. If the app doesn't run, it is a Wine bug.
And how do you talk SQL over some form of socket? You need a driver.
It still does, so long as you're selective of the software you run on it. You could run a totally modern kernel and X.org (or Wayland) on an original Pentium with 32MB of RAM, but in no way should you expect to run GNOME or LibreOffice or Chrome or Firefox on it, at least not without glacial loading times.
But more frequently, PCs from 10-15 years ago still in service just aren't that starved on resources anymore. They'll chug along slowly, but they can still get the job done, and nobody is really surprised when they're capable of it. Hell, if you have half a gig of RAM, you can probably still run full GNOME and LibreOffice and all without major issues.
He has the freedom to throw a tantrum. You, and everyone else, also have the freedom to distribute a version of Emacs with LLVM support.
It cannot possibly be abandoned in any sense of the word if it is still actively supported and sold.
Quite a lot of databases don't allow to specify a field as an unsigned integer. YouTube probably runs on one of them.
Can the requirement be worked around by advertising the aspect as 6:6? (What does "at least" mean for aspect?)
Erm.... software development is exactly a use-case where widescreen hurts. Want more lines of code, not less. Width doesn't matter, it's rare for lines of code to be longer than 80~120 characters.
The GNOME project is seeking donations to help them in a legal battle against these trademark applications, and to get Groupon to stop using their name. They are seeking at least $80,000 to challenge a first set of ten trademark applications from Groupon, out of 28 applications that have been filed.
It's worth noting that systemd's NTP and DHCP implementations are purposefully as simplistic as possible. The NTP daemon (systemd-timesyncd) is only a client that keeps a clock synchronized to a server, it cannot behave as a server itself. The DHCP daemon (systemd-networkd) is meant only to handle a wired network connection on a single interface, the sort of thing that a server or maybe a desktop computer would want; more complicated network setups can ignore this functionality and use any number of the pre-existing network configuration methods Linux already had.
There's no real point in using it if you can't even trust it does what they say it does...
Isn't that what compatibility modes are for? Windows already has a good list of apps built-in to automatically run in "Windows 98 mode" or "Windows XP mode"
