And how do you talk SQL over some form of socket? You need a driver.
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).
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"
I really really really hope you're just trying to troll.
It still has no official modding support. Mojang bought Bukkit and hired its team over a year ago, but they still keep it an independent project and not the official mod API (think how CentOS is now owned by Red Hat but still has a social/corporate firewall between RHEL and CentOS devs).
As for being written poorly in Java, it was original just some dumb idea that Notch had to remake Infiniminer, and his Random Java Project #56 -- he already had mild internet fame (albeit nothing compared to his post-Minecraft fame), but this particular game had just enough potential to keep it moving. He didn't make it to be very performant in the first place, Java was just familiar and convenient to him.
I have both / and
Sure, 5-10 are pretty okay but it's really basic kindergarten-level bantering.
I don't think any rational person would ever say "Gee, I felt like cheating, stealing, and killing today, but I'm so glad we have those COMMANDMENTS to tell me not to!"
