The biggest concern people have is with the thimerosol in the vaccines, which is 50% mercury. They banned thimerosol from contact lens solutions and other products - isn't there some other preservative they could put in vaccines? You have to admit, it's a bit disconcerting to be injecting your newborn with mercury.
Dude, THIS. This is just more harassment of the poor! (Mistreating us peasants, like the drug war, conscription, having your income taxes taken off your check by your employer, etc, etc.)
... as the default desktop environment? It's come a long way. Can we overlook their past failings, and move on with the best DE there is? Please and thank you.
All Apple really did was take a bunch of already-existing technologies (the touch screen, phone and computer parts), and put them together in a small package. How's this any different than "inventing" the hamburger, and why aren't we paying licensing fees every time we eat a Big Mac? I know, I know, don't give them any ideas...
You're twelve, aren't you?
Totally. I also love the hot corner and the little animation.
See my new comment about how "Slashdot's Comment Moderation System Sucks".
Because it allows "the majority" to filter out ideas they don't agree with. They're not rating the quality of the posts, just whether it matches their tastes. People say they like GNOME 3, and their comments don't appear, but rant about why you don't and your post shows on the page, it's stupid.
Sounds like your problem isn't GNOME, it's that your hardware is obsolete. Go on using that old junk, though - "it still works," right?
Because my comment has a zero rating and I personally have no mod points? Sounds legit.
I know. I get the feeling there are a lot of old fogeys that frequent this site who have somehow become very closed-minded and picky over the years - you know the type, the ones that say "I only use vim" and that sort of thing. And then there are the loudmouth hateful youngsters. So I dunno.
Whatever! But I much prefer GNOME 3 to any other interface, even GNOME 2 with Compiz. If the developers are reading this, they can certainly view my comment as praise, because it's really the best thing going right now.
I personally find GNOME 3 very slick and modern, and have grown to love it. Seriously, try it with Cairo Dock-gl, you won't miss anything about GNOME 2. If I were the developers, I'd be angry. They built something awesome, even did it for free. And then there's all these nasty little ingrates on Slashdot, typing nasty little comments, whining and complaining. STFU!
