Can't argue with that, and I'm not saying that a bit of gold as part of financial security portfolio is necessarily worthless. My point is directed toward those who support gold hoarding for the event of economic meltdown, war, and the like.
Exactly, it makes no difference. When the gold is gone for the first loaf, you are back to fists for the second.
I lost interest in bitcoin roughly a minute after I read about it first, when I realized that the first people to build large mining rigs would be our new overlords. That's not better than all the land being owned by landed gentry for centuries.
In the worst case you will give your gold to anyone who trades it for a loaf of bread.
The problem with installing flavor A and then apt-getting DE B is always that you end up with a gazillion different utilities which clutter up your menus and are confusing even to the seasoned linux user. You can do it, and it may be reasonable if you are evaluating DEs prior to a decision, but it's not pretty. Given Ubuntu's targets they are doing it right IMHO.
Ever heard of NoScript? No, didn't think so.
Please hand in your geek card on the way out, thanks!
I'm using NoScript and it's a pain in the ass to do so.
Seems like an overkill solution considering that the problem never occurred.
If speeding fines were made to not just slurp up revenue, they would be done similar to Germany's system where every time one is caught, they pay the cop and go on. Eventually getting pulled over every quarter mile and paying $20-25 gets old and people start complying with the limit.
In Germany, you also get entries into a central register, and they will pull your license if you accrue a certain number of points. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point_system_(driving)#Germany
employees are free to sign contracts of employment that specify disclosure about monitoring practices just as they are free to sign contracts of employment that specify disclosure about monitoring practices. Why does either party need the nanny state to step in?
Because without the state we end up with these choices.
Please share the link for the Linux binaries for these.
Read the post I replied to.
Or you could have used MS Word and PowerPoint viewer for no fee.
Everyone else being RedHat. In the long run, Wayland may become what Canonical needed after all, and Canonical may be proven wrong, or Mir may turn out to be a great Idea. We will see. Today this is far from clear, and certainly they didn't needlessly create a competitor to a Wayland that everyone already uses.
So the argument that Canonical deliberately does not use what "everyone uses" was misleading at best.
I experience pretty terrible tearing with xbmc, so at least for me X does not perform extremely well.
Who "uses" Wayland?
