Perhaps what #51029267 meant is that you ought to have read through sudo(8) and sudoers(5) not just before you visudo but even before you sudo in the first place.
How is gmail (an email provider, with a web UI) competition to Thunderbird (an email client)?
Gmail's web interface as an interface to Gmail is competition for Thunderbird as an interface to Gmail.
I use Thunderbird to read and send emails on my gmail account
That depends on how long Google continues to offer Gmail access through other clients without charge.
Then which email client should Slackware users be using?
Isn;'t that what shared libraries are for?
Yes, provided that upstream can be bothered to keep a stable ABI in the shared libraries.
And entrust one's private key for signing and decrypting messages to whom?
Indies are huge on PC (as they are on mobile), so that's all left. [...] Heck, while there are a few stubbornly PC only developers, many former PC only developers branched out to consoles
So in your opinion, at what point does a PC game developer stop being "indie" and start being "stubborn"?
That'd be fine if there were viable PC counterparts to certain console exclusives. Does PC have a flagship fighting game with terrain and platforms (like Smash Bros. or PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, not like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, which are flat plane fighters)? Does PC have a flagship kid-friendly third-person shooter (like Splatoon)?
Why hack a PS4 to run homebrew when you can just build a comparable AMD PC?
But the Get Windows 10 app will not let me proceed, instead telling me that NVIDIA has not made the GPU compatible and giving a link to shop for a new PC. Should I take a screenshot? Is there a recommended half-height discrete GPU to use instead of the integrated one? (Because the case is compact, a full-height GPU will not fit.) Should I follow the instructions in this thread to create USB install media? Or should I just leave that PC at Windows 7 and then attempt to Linux it once Windows 7 reaches end of extended support in a few years?
What's the difference between the smiling face at 01h in cp437 and emojis?
If your shirt is long enough, who needs pants anyway?
Which computer, and which operating system? As I wrote above, Microsoft is still supporting IE 9 on Windows Vista.
From Internet Explorer Support Lifecycle Policy FAQ, linked in the featured article:
Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates, as shown in the table below:
Windows Vista SP2: Internet Explorer 9
Windows Server 2008 SP2: Internet Explorer 9
Windows Embedded POSReady 2009: Internet Explorer 8
So yes, IE 9 security updates will continue. So will IE 8 updates for those Windows XP users who have applied the "Piece of $#!+ Ready" registry hack.
