It seems the van that became known as the transportation of choice for counter-culture folks in the '60s can't be made with the air bags and other safety equipment that "the man" wants it to have."

Yes, I feel like this for a while now. Waiting for the last drop to fall
damn it is indeed pretty large
I very much like the gnome 3 shell. When I run windows7 because of Autodesk Inventor I continue to press the os key. Which is the awsome feature of gnome 3, zoom out and you see all programs you are running. Why all you people are so negative, I dont get it.
People can not punch you in the face over the internet
re-evaluate Elop? NO!
It is time to make a global law. Every transaction should be subjected to a randomised delay between 1 and 2 seconds . Problem solved, smart people can start doing something useful again.
I stopped drinking coffee a few years ago and feel a lot better. It upsets my stomach. It made me a lot more tense. I tended to sleep badly. Waking up at 5am. Headaches during the day. Generally felt misserable. It took about 6 months to kick off. Coffee is an adiction. And a pretty bad one. I can not understand these studies, probably funded by the coffee makers. Because generally if you drink coffee you will feel awful.
It is easier to drag other people down than to do actual work. Within our company this is very obvious in our sales department. People are not focussed on winning. They are focussed on other people loosing.
Gnome 3, once you start hitting the os-button you will never go back. The shell is awsome
My eyes popped out of my head. I'm sorry but these two companies have consistently had a target of 2min load times on all the computers I had the last 10 years. Fuck you for being shit programmers. I'm sorry but there is no other way to say this. Jesus.
Ha ha, I have an N9. It is awesome.
The biggest mistake in reasoning with a lot of systems like this is that the cost of administrative infrastructure is greatly under estimated.
Cost as in time. Asking for permission, reading a license contacting a lawyer about what the legal boundries are.
Cost as in money. Productive people are instead bogged down in checking and gatekeeping. This loss is doubled, this person could have contributed but is now a burden on the system.
Cost as in enjoyment. When working on something as soon as you have a negative balance in work completing the goal and red tape. People get demotivated. Work progress gets slowed or not compleded at all.
He glosses over in one sentence saying "a sufficiently nice license". This license and the administrative system it requires can never be good enough. This system would be huge, imagine the amount of paper work alone.
MS is trying to paint Linux in the low end corner. When in fact it is better at all functionality than anything MS can create. It will not work because the galaxy S II is already the most high end phone on the market. And it is running linux. They are too late. Imagine the next Samsung phone comming out next year. Microsoft will be way behind once again.
