As usually, it's "intellectual property" that's a problem. Stop treating licensing as goods/work, and the ability to shift profits goes away.
It's so needed after GTK went to the crapper.
No, innovation is usually good. Without it, we'd never move forward, including having gotten to where we are now. It's just that you need to weed good innovation from bad.
Actually, GNOME3 is a counterexample. I wish Microsoft held a patent on obnoxious tabletized UIs.
You mean, they're usually without a real strategy?
It boggles me why, on the left side of the pond, you have people with multiple DUI convictions who still get permits to drive on selected routes.
Here in Poland, quite a few people push for the first DUI mean losing the driving license for life. I'd say that's overkill, but 5 years or so of absolute driving ban for a DUI would be just right. It's a kind of a murder attempt, after all.
It doesn't matter if they are lying through their teeth when they say that. Because they claim it to be true, we can use that as further justification that the NSA's mass-surveillance hasn't done squat.
Because they're busy using that surveillance spying on political and business opponents. Come on, citizen, you don't want to take resources away from that to put then to unimportant stuff like catching criminals and preventing terrorism, do you? Heck, if we caught terrorists before they strike, the terror would be gone and this would risk pulling resources away public support from the surveillance!
Why in the blazes the inter-Slashdot link leads to the Beta travesty? If I, due to some mental malady, would prefer Beta, I'd set it as my default.
Why does even Dice keep Beta afloat after it failed? I seriously hope the plans to make it the main -- and only -- interface are gone. Oh well, there's still Soylent...
With compilers, what counts is the speed of compiled code rather than compilation speed, and here clang loses by quite a bit.
Compilation speed really matters only in rapid compile-debug cycles, but there clang, despite winning on compile speed, is hindered by producing worse debug info.
Just install the "Classic Theme Restorer" add-on and Firefox is as usable as it was before.
This goes in sharp contrast with the CA cartel model, where you need to trust the sum (rather than alternative) of 400+ entities, some of which are known to be actively engaged in MITM, like CNNIC or Etisalat.
Uhm no, you can't MITM DNSSEC, you can't do anything except a denial of service unless you control one of three entities:
- that particular TLD
- the registrar your victim uses
That is, unless someone is stupid enough to trust some external DNS server, but no reasonable DNSSEC client would use a dumb stub resolver this way.
