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?
Please list the processes of this supposed bloat that is supposedly used to force you to keep running unity.
There will come a time when somebody can explain to me the weird shit that happens when I hit Ctrl+C Ctrl+V
They're making incredibly unpopular design changes without giving people any real option to do things their own way and driving their own userbase away. Unity and other ass backwardsness pissed me off SO MUCH that I learned to use Arch Linux just to get away from it.
You are free to hate Unity, but what's that "without giving people any real option"? You can always apt-get any DE or WM you like, or switch to any other distro while taking your data with you. Options galore.
Like the cat.
Good for me. I was once afraid that I'd become dispensable when I get old (i.e., any time now). Not anymore, the way we are going I'll be able to choose my jobs until I die just because I can read.
It's on AXN in Germany, a premium channel most people don't have. At least they have an English audio channel, which is usually not available when a show airs on a German channel (just adding this for those who have no first-hand experience on the horrors of dubbing on German TV).
