+ - GNUstep Kickstarter Campaign Launched->

Submitted by borgheron
borgheron (172546) writes "The maintainer of GNUstep has launched a kickstarter campaign to get the time to make GNUstep more complete and get it's APIs up to at least a Mac OS 10.6 level of compatibility. This will allow applications for Mac OS X to run on Linux with a simple recompile using new tools developed by the GNUstep team to directly build from xcodeproj project files. If the kickstarter project is funded beyond it's $50,000 goal, it's possible that WebKit and Darling might also be completed allowing applications built on Mac OS X to run without the need for a recompile... think WINE-like functionality for Mac OS X applications on other platforms... including Windows, Linux, BSD, etc."

I'm not sure if you're thinking that thought through. Yes the higher education institutions could sell the personal relationship with the expert. But they don't necessarily have to do it in a classroom environment. Video chat is main stream now, and it can even be done as a classroom. Brick and Mortar schools could easily become a thing of the past with the advent of Broadband availability to most/all homes (even internationally).

Essentially, Colleges and Universities will still exist, but on a much smaller footprint, and will become Media creativity hubs (Compute/Storage farm, and pure research facility), where professors will generate content for online consumption. Then once their curriculum for the semester is complete the head home (wherever that may be), and make themselves available for Video/Audio conference, and/or if they choose a live video classroom.

Universities will become a true sense of what everyone thinks of them now, A place that will give you a piece of paper after several years of paying them 10s or 100s of thousands of dollars. Then you use that paper to get you in the door of you first job and not much beyond that...

Then, at some point in the future, Mozilla will run a campaign explaining that 10% of the interwebs is on Firefox 11 ESR, but there have been loads of new features and enhancements since then so we should all tell people to upgrade to Firefox 17. Friends don't let friends use IE 6^W^WFF 11.

Comment: Depends on the term "Property" (Score 1) 312

by IAmAMacOSXAddict (#38423160) Attached to: Smallest space my belongings could fit (unbroken):
It's pretty Vague, but using the term unbroken I assume it means "Personal Property" not including Homes or Land. If so than I might fit the 5000 with 4 cars, furnature from a 3 bedroom victorian (9 rooms in all, all rooms furnished and furnished basement home theater), and throw in all the personal other stuff like computers/tvs/clothes.

If it implies all "property" then 5000 is not enough....
