I find it strange that Uber doesn't try harder to fix this problem.
Not at all strange. They are sociopathic libertarian company devoted to "disruption", which is generally code for "we break the law if it gets in the way of us making money and we think we can get away with it".
Nobody said lynch mob. That term has a connotation of violence without cause.
No, it doesn't. At all. It means exactly what you are talking about.
Do you realise at all that people die in wars?
Like, people who are not Kim Jong-Un?
Except, you know, that in other societies women are interested in science and technology.
So no. You are quite simply wrong.
Yep, shure. But that is clearly contra-productive for the whole community
Nothing clear about it whatsoever. It means people can actually make a profit, which means they will actually put in the effort to make things that community will benefit from.
And no, with a few notable but very specific exceptions, you can't really make money off GPL'd software.
Sure, if they want to maintain their own fork that nobody uses, they can do that.
If it's MIT licensed it's probably a bit too open for him.
Can you name a person who has been scared to go to a police station because he downloaded an mp3 at some point?
Who is not insane?
There is simply no way this is actually a good faith attempt to benefit the citizenry here. None.
Well I don't know about anyone else, but I'm convinced! I'm glad you didn't try to cloud the issue by any kind of pesky evidence or anything!
Actual, real-world programs do more than "implement algorithms". Turing-completeness is completely irrelevant in pretty much every single practical programming situation.
Yes, MS is well known for suing students running VB.NET on Mono.
At least in the crazy universe inside your head.
2) asm.js is bad because I say so.
3) I hate Mozilla.
Number of factual statements about asm.js or its problems: Zero.
It does. That is why dark matter is the leading theory at the moment. It is the simplest one, with the least additional elements, that can actually explain all available observations.
There are plenty of simpler theories that can't, though, if you prefer things that are known to be wrong.
It is technically possible but practically impossible, for two reasons: One, it is very hard to get even backwards-compatible extensions approved for addition to PNG. See the failure of APNG for an example. Two, such a change would not really be backwards-compatible, and the files would be named "png" but would not actually open in any current PNG reader. There would thus be very little advantage of adding this to PNG rather than creating a new format.
