Look at how the mouse moves. Have you every seen any desktop environment where the mouse update rate is that shitty? No, you haven't.

A lot of desktop recording applications run at 10-15fps to save space and/or bandwidth, and because it's plenty to adequately show off the user interfaces of most graphical applications. I've been using WebEx and other screen recording solutions (including FRAPS) for over a decade. don't try to school me on this.

I have some of the animations in KDE 4 enabled, stuff like opening/closing windows, minimizing/maximizing, switching desktops and the like. I also have them set to "fast" rather than "normal". The animation is still clearly visible, but it's quick enough that they don't get in the way. Nothing at all like that horrible Crazy Compiz video linked in the summary.

Animations are perfectly OK, as long as they don't get in the way of actually using the system.

Price should not be the only metric to be used for measuring competitiveness. Supporting the society and industries that in turn support you should always be prioritized.

Unfortunately, stockholders only care about short-term savings and profits. No one dares to think in the long term, because that would mean slightly lessened profits in the short term.

Because A.P Møller-Mærsk used to a point of pride for Denmark. One of our biggest companies and a big international player with influence all over the world, and they supported little ol' Denmark by making use of local labor and expertise, sponsoring public projects and *gasp* paying their taxes. It was a fully-sustainable business approach, and supported hundreds of other Danish companies, not to mention thousands of Danish shipbuilders, often lauded as the very best in the world.

South Korea is definitely not a third-world country, and I am not denigrating the great skills of their shipbuilders at all, it's a tough job for tough people. But it's still outsourcing tasks to the other side of the world, when they could very easily have been solved at home in way that would have been beneficial to both A.P. Møller-Mærsk and Denmark as a whole.

It's bullshit that they're building them in Korea, though.

We have perfectly capable, world-class shipyards in Denmark, practically begging to take on these kinds of tasks. In the old days, when Arnold Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller still ran the company, these orders would have gone to Danish companies. No more, now everything is outsourced to the lowest bidder.

Pause for storage relocation.
