But who's counting..
First one that came up with search results.
As the merger is now complete and Microsoft owns and operates the former Nokia mobile operations, Microsoft actually became a Linux vendor.
Microsoft now has a consumer product for sale which is running Linux as its primary OS kernel.
The game is over. Torvalds won.
There are many benefits in working with well established platform and performing maintenance coding.
Personally, I would never accept pay cut for "I'm bored with my current job".
You can always find more rewarding job with higher salary if you really want to.
Just remember you don't have to rush out, and don't let the door hit you in the ass when you leave.
World is actually annoyingly small place and you will end up bumping into your old colleagues and it's much better if you are in good terms with them.
I actually did this kind of move just recently.
I left my old job for a position in a much smaller company with old, almost ancient infrastructure.
One of the main reasons for leaving was the salary, the small company does not have capital/revenue of even
I didn't double my salary by switching but taking into account the layoffs which were foreseeable in the old position, I'd might aswell say I did double up.
I don't use that one myself, just first result from google which is free.
It accumulates to certain individuals who instead of keeping the cash flowing and market running hoard it like Scrooge McDuck.
The imagined lack of availability with increased interest drives the price point up for those who participate at the market and this creates valuation bubble.
Bitcointalk has nice estimates of the distribution in this thread
I've been using their free version for few personal projects and it's great.
why not just let it go and retire
Not everything in life is about money, atleast when you have enough not to worry if you can pay the rent or maybe buy food tomorrow.
Having extra time and nothing to do can be really dulling and boring in numerous ways.
The company is their baby. They built it and they want to see it succeed.
Sometimes it's good to scale back and rethink the direction.
a solid hardware manufacturer in their back pocket. Next up?
Well, if you look what happened with Palm deal and Windows Mobile, it's not hard to guess what happens next..
There isn't that many ways to configure it if you consider the variations you can do.
For some reason djbdns does not do this, it gives vague hints and makes you read 50 man pages followed by 100 blog post and 200 websites with obsolete/slightly relevant info on what you're trying to accomplish and if the position of the moon is decent, your tinkering will eventually work.
When you reach the "oh it works" phase, you follow "if it works, don't f**king touch it!" mantra and you're good.
I've tried going through the djbdns code to implement some changes and it's really well written in the sense that you can get grasp of what's going on in there quite fast.
The code is simple in a way which reminds me of some early cisco code I've seen for stuff like switches and routers.
Maybe the "competition" is so bad at doing the same thing because over-engineering?
If the documentation of djbdns would be in par with the code quality, I'd call it superb software. Now it's "I need the features it provides so I deal with the issues and use it"
Best lengths were 30-40 meters and the phone broke into 3 pieces on landing, but worked fine once you put them back together.
Better not try that with modern phones, I don't think the build quality today would allow such abuse and still allow them to function.
Coming soon to the Far North: cruise ships.
I think you mean going? Largest cruise ships are built in Finland but it's not where they sail at.
It's old and established name for a product but it's run by Microsoft now, are they forced to rebrand it too?
