But you are not making $1.2million per release, so you cant afford yet another gold plated Ferarri...
Like how movie studios Deserve financial help from the government and they never make money on a movie so they dont have to pay taxes.
I would feel bad for them if they were not raging scumbags themselves. Just ask Stan-Lee how he was robbed of any money from the Spiderman movies.
I never seem to have a need to run a GUI on a remote machine but I use them on my local machine every day
Plenty of people have the need to use a remote GUI, that's why Microsoft made remote desktop. Usually though, you just need one or two applications, and it's more convenient to have them show up by themselves instead of needing to deal with the entire screen of the other computer.
Of course, if all you ever do is admin on the command line, you're not going to need that. You probably don't even need a GUI at all on those servers.
I use rdp all the time, I was asking why it was so important to have X and its amazing single app rdp ability over what is provided by windows. I personally have never been in a situation where I the X stuff has ever been an imrovement i couldnt live without over something like Vnc
He didn't say it was doing a good job, he said he couldn't see a better alternative. And you didn't propose one either.
Worse, C is the speed of light in a vacuum. In any other medium it's slower. I'd need to check what current light fiber speeds are, but it's guaranteed to be less than C, unless there's a vacuum in the center of the fiber. (I think there needs to be a relatively smooth gradient of speeds, with the center being the fastest and the edges being the slowest for an optical fiber to work, but I'm less than certain.)
OTOH, a tetrahertz switch doesn't mean a tetrahertz CPU cycle. So I'm not at all sure that you can presume that we're talking about a speedup of 250. I don't know what the speed of a switch inside a fast CPU is currently.
At comcast that is how we worked from 1998 to 2007 when I was there. Security breach? I can tell the CEO to fuck himself to his face and yank the plug. And at many times I saw executives escorted out of the data center by guards because they were being idiots demanding we restore internet access. Management are clueless morons, they must be left out of the loop for security.
It's why Cops dont have to call the mayor when they see a guy running into a bank with a gun in his hand and a big sack with a dollar sign painted on it.
"Maybe they're just fucking idiots,"
This describes the management of all large corporation IT departments. IT is an expense, they are not really important like the marketing department.
On a stock phone without any hacking, rooting or other tricks needed? HTC hero must have been an awesome phone to come fully open like that.
I'll be paid fairly for the work I am doing....
It never happens...
SO therefore it is not a real holiday...
Damn it Hallmark, we demand Pi day greeting cards!
And anything else will also be the same way. I have been trying to use the Ubuntu phone releases for 2 years now and they have the exact same problems that geeks hate on android and iphone. It also is a walled garden (Yes kids android IS a walled garden, go ahead and install a new hardware driver in your phone)
Ubuntu phone suffers from a lot of the same problem because it is designed by a company looking for profits. not by a bunch of engineers and programmers that want to make something powerful and extendable.
we will NEVER get a cellphone that is perfect for "geeks" not in the sense of a tiny pocket device. now if you instead think outside that box and think in the lines of a "deck" like in the game shadowrun or the TV show "almost human" that is your computer in a larger formfactor that you always have with you, then use a small display+audio device to use the cellular modem/board in the "deck". this means having to carry around essentially a 13" laptop everywhere (OH THE HORROR!) but it will allow someone the best of all worlds. their choice of OS, their choice of Software with full open protocols. you pick the cellular board (arduino type cellular board, someone out there has an LTE type that has a full open control, data, and audio channels) and interface it to your hardware.
and honestly with some of the arduino high power quad core clones out there, it's possible to make it smallish. will it be a tiny paper thin thing? nope, but it will be better than anything your non techie friends will ever own.
To detect the AD and color it's background blood RED. 90% of the ad's when you search for a program's name are scumware that pollute the users computer. Google knows this and they refuse to fix it because they make money off of it.
I really hope that someone finds a way to identify the ad's so adblock can strip them, or we can at least warn people away from them.
Network transparency is a MUST to me, but if it is important for many it should end up getting implemented into any solution eventually.
I am curious as to why?
I have seen the amazingly cool things X can do when someone showed them to me a decade or so back, but it has never once been useful to me in the real world.
When I admin a linux server I do everything on the command line via ssh. This is the whole strength of Linux in that you can do everything without needing a GUI. What I have needed far more is the responsiveness that direct display writes from app to hardware give me when running stuff locally.
I never seem to have a need to run a GUI on a remove machine but I use them on my local machine every day so it makes perfect sense to make fast local performance a priority at the expense of remote GUI performance that is not used as often.

Desktop_effects... those are highly important to getting work done.
This is the problem nothing is being done for real performance... it's all for glitter and oooh shiny.
