Not to mention, the coal plants aren't just simply going to disappear. I really doubt Denmark is just going to dismantle them, at least in the near future - they'll surely just maintain them and keep them around for emergencies (such as an energy war with Russia or whatnot).
Like locks in general keep honest men honest...
Figure if someone really wants to steal 'em, well, that's why they're insured.
Kinda. Thing is, the trend lately has been to decouple stuff. So for example, where Entity Framework used to be shipped in box with
I don't know if the same is going to happen with C# and VB command line compilers. Today, they also ship as part of
I admit that I don't know much about the F/OSS MS story outside of development and admin stack, but there it's very heavy - VS does ship with a bunch of F/OSS stuff in the box, including some of its own components, and more so as time goes by. A bunch of Azure stuff, SDKs and admin tools, is also open sourced.
By the way, most new MS open source projects (and some of the older ones) have moved to GitHub, so that's the latest and greatest, not so much CodePlex anymore.
Furthermore, the areas that will benefit the most from continued warming are in places like Canada and Siberia where there the population isn't gonna increase (due to societal habits) no matter how much food you can grow there.
I assure you, should Siberia really warm up and open large swaths of arable land, China will have a couple hundred million people to resettle in short order. Russia might object, but I doubt that will matter much.
You haven't been looking too closely for the past few years then. Quite a lot of
Microsoft is actively trying to move away from being a "software vendor", and become a hardware and services company. Services, in particular, means cloud. And to sell cloud, you need to offer people what they want in it, which includes open source, Linux etc.
The problem is that there are still a lot of people who do care. In fact, they were the majority in this country until very recently, judging by public opinion polls on gay marriage.
Saying "I'm proud to be X" in the face of that is defiance of bigotry, not a statement of one's superiority.
Let me try to give an analogous example. In Turkey, they persecute everything Kurdish, to the point where Kurds often can't speak their own language or even publicly self-identify as Kurds. In the face of that, saying "I'm proud to be a Kurd" is an acceptable and understandable declaration of non-submission. On the other hand, in the same country, someone saying "I'm proud to be a Turk" would be more likely to be taken as an expression of nationalist supremacist sentiment - because there's no discrimination against Turks on account of being Turks.
... to the masses of sarcastic "I though Open Source was more secure!" crowd: in an Open Source forum, when vulnerabilities are found, they are patched. Since it's a public forum, the vulnerabilities are disclosed, and patches / updates made available. The poor, sorry state of the first cut gets rapidly and openly improved.
With closed source, the vulnerabilities merely stay hidden and undisclosed, and you have no ability to know about it, or fix it yourself. the poor, sorry state of the first cut never improves. Yes, there are some cultures that take security seriously. You have no way of knowing.
This, right here, is what "more secure" looks like: public notification of the vulnerabilities and patches to distribute.
I haven't worn a watch in well over a decade. Why should I start wearing one now?
Has there been some change over recent years that has made phones hard to get out of your pocket?
Yes. They are now FUCKING HUGE. I really miss my RAZR V3.
They went over to Africa to help the people there and we want to ostracize them for 21 days when they get back?
Pathogens don't care how much of a hero you are. FWIW, the same thing is being done to soldiers, and it seems no one in the media is crying over them.
There is a nonzero time interval between when they notice symptoms and when they get to a hospital. During that time, they could potentially pass on the virus.
Listen, we the great unwashed are ordered to get our shots for everything under the sun. Admittedly, things like the flu are more common and more likely to kill you than ebola. But most of us aren't fans of bleeding to death from every orifice. We expect a high level of dedication from our medical professionals, and when they disregard protocol (that is, what they said protocol was before they changed it suddenly) it makes it harder for the rest of us to take them seriously.
