Comment: I must say, I doubt that very much (Score 0) 986

Groklaw has more to fear than any other one of a bazillion lunitic web sites out there? Enlighten me as to when and why Slashdot will be shutting down. I mean they allow foul language here you know. That alone should be enough to justify death by bunda for all /. editors and moderators. Everybody in other words. Call me skeptical.

Comment: Fork Off? (Score 1) 1501

Not that it would ever happen, but whether or not to fork is not entirely up to Intel. Suppose Linus very politely tells the next Intel patch set to visit /dev/null. I expect the language of Sarah's co workers would make LKML look like picking daisys and skipping through the park. The other thing about being a PC dumbass is not understanding the risk.

KDE looks to be the latest stable at It's not as much of a smoothie as G2 but if you like KDE 3.5, they have a UBT 12.04 spin with .13.1 as the primary DE. I like it because it reminds me of the Slackware renaissance period. (Late middle ages). Feels like you are close to the iron, don't know how true that is though.
