It is a scam that only the low IQ waste their money on.
"The group is designed for the carriers to let 'mobile operators shape Ubuntu's mobile strategy. " This will do nothing but destroy the platform. Carriers have nothing good to "advise" any phone OS maker about. Every one of them shovel more crap on top of the phone that what is upposed to be there and destroy features they dont like.
Thus ends Ubuntu Phone OS.
One that actually has a clue as to how Logic and computers work. Almost every single CS grad we get nowdays cant even pass the tests for employment like binary math, or solving a logic problem.
No, that's just how they smell now, they never learned how to bathe.
"You've been programming for at least 20 years. That means you've started when things weren't buried behind seven layers of abstraction but had to be done by hand. In languages that didn't help you all that much, but didn't get in the way of letting you get things done either. So, like me, you've seen things those young whippersnappers wouldn't believe."
Those languages still exist, and real programmers learn them and even more powerful stuff that makes you a far better programmer... Like Assembler.
the "young whipper snappers" had better get off their asses and learn it so they can leverage knowledge that their peers do not have so they can be far more valuable in the workforce.
Honestly they really should force CS students to program on Arduinos and Pics before they ever touch larger hardware. Forced to deal with slow processor, tiny ram and near zero storage makes better programmers.
you can patent something that you don't even have a clue how to build it. In fact most patents are just that, obscure ideas.
Again proof the Patent office is a joke. this is simply attaching something to another thing.
I would like to patent the method of attaching things to other things in order to file a patent.
That place must have had horribly inept IT for them to botch a thin client deployment.
Yup they work great. the trick is getting the netboot working the way you like it so you dont have to manage any storage on the device.
Because we all know that a poorly written Application (Oracle) causing an OS problem is the fault of the OS...
Windows is a heap of crap because McAffee grinds it to a halt!
Which is why as an american citizen it is your DUTY to perform jury nullification if you are ever selected.
When A cop is talking to you all you say is, "Am I being detained? Am I free to leave?" over and over and over. You say nothing else and do not trust the police in any way at any time. The police are not there to protect you or be your friend. They certainly are not there to help you in any way. Never EVER give them any information or say anything but, "Thank you officer, can I leave now? Am I free to leave?" If you want your rights you have to play their game.
Policy makers do trade. They just trade on inside information and make 20%-50% gains on every trade. You are a peon so you have to rely on blind luck to get your
Look at the reports, trading exploding 2 seconds before things being announced, etc... All of congress trades, they just have very different information and rules than you do.
Really? 0.03% will lok out small investors? If 0.03% makes things too expensive for you then stop trading in penny stocks.
Remember those two are different targets.
Redhat is an enterprise Distro. Slackware is a hobbiest Distro Tow very different things. IT's like comparing Boeing to Cessna. They both make airplanes... but they both target completely different markets.
