Hershey "chocolate" is made from vomit rather than feces. And this is not a joke; at the time I assumed I got a badly spoiled piece.
which fork to use during which course during a fancy dinner
Whichever fork does the job. Any smart person will realize using fork X only for dish Y is an old fad.
We know that warlike once-nomadic Aesir mingled with settled farmer Vanir.
Which speaks heaps about their worshippers.
It's not rebranding -- it'd be like calling your home an El-Gaz because you got central heating from El-Gaz.
The kernel is just one of many components -- and not even an irreplaceable one (Debian kfreebsd for example).
No, the distinction is important, although for not Stallman's reasons. We need different names for the kernel (Linux) vs kernel+bionic (Android) vs kernel+mostly-GNU (GNU/Linux) vs some embedded stuff.
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.
