You think that somehow the US kangaroo courts are any more just?
Exactly. The kangaroo courts in Russia are definitely less just than US kangaroo courts. Just like how we have corruption in the US, and it is that much less than the corruption in Russia.
The difference between the corruption of the USA and Russia is like the difference in the destructive power of a tomahawk missile and a nuclear bomb. Yes they are both very destructive, but one is many orders of magnitude more destructive.
That's a pretty good analogy. Someone who gets screwed over by the courts in the US might think they're irredeemably unjust, in the same way that to someone killed by a tomahawk missile they're quite dead, but that a particular individual is 100% affected doesn't mean there isn't a difference in scale.
It's all pretty automatic, nearly zero user knowledge needed. And then you can test it out for yourself instead of doing something both scandalous and in this case useless anyways like RTFA'ing. But no, seriously, if you're curious at all, it really is quite easy to set up, and I do think worth it since you'll far more easily discover what Ubuntu Phone (and any other Linux-based smartphone platform you feel like tinkering with, or other Android ROMs) really is and how you do or don't like it.
I was disappointed TFA didn't mention anything about what you might or might not be able to do aside from the normal functions of a phone. It's Ubuntu, after all. Do I get a shell? Do I get root? Can I install Ubuntu packages such as openssh-server, rsync, etc? Is there anything accessible resembling a real Linux environment?
WIth Ubuntu Phone/Touch (I swear they keep flipping what they're calling it) you get a shell, and last I used it the interface was actually pretty good. However, although many nice packages are shipped installed, you cannot by default install normal packages yourself because the root filesystem is read-only, and is updated as an incremental image with each new version. So you can disable that read-only nature and then install your own packages, but that then disables system upgrades, and if you re-enable system upgrades you are by definition wiping out all your installed packages.
In this respect I've found SailfishOS far more familiar, even though it's an RPM-based distro and I'm far more familiar with DEB-based distros, because SailfishOS under the hood acts exactly like any other distro, it just happens to run on your phone (with much of the gesture-based swishiness of Ubuntu Phone). If I want to install git, I just type "pkcon install git" or whatnot and I get it. If a system library has a bug, I can recompile it with a fix myself and replace the
Yeah, I think you are missing a bit.
For one, Ubuntu has actually become quite popular on the server at scale, because they have put resources into Ubuntu Server as a product---they just don't necessarily advertise it in ways that get splashy coverage on
Secondly, their release cadence works a bit better than Debian for many server applications, since even their LTS releases come out a bit more frequently than Debian releases (although Debian has been getting more consistent lately) and there's the non-LTS every-six-months releases to be used if one needs a relatively updated base OS, whereas for something like Debian you're basically on the stable every-second-year releases or on unstable, no middle ground.
My advice: Follow the parent's advice and appeal to the school board. Pissing off the principal can get him to easily call in the SWAT team...
Sure, but won't appealing to the school board piss the principal off? Sounds like it's lose/lose (and extra loses for each additional option) for the kid here.
There's a good Wikipedia page that breaks down the usage shares of web browsers, along with addressing the difficulties and complications of getting accurate data on this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... is the page. From there you can see that the best IE can get is in some of the stats and only when counting purely desktop browsing. Net Applications has IE at nearly 58%. Yet, almost every other measure finds them woefully behind. For example, visits to Wikipedia in March 2015 have IE at less than 11%. StatsCounter has them at less than 20% of desktop browser share from April 2015 to now, with Chrome at nearly 53% and Firefox nipping at IE's heels at 18%.
For my own part, I look after a company website that's oriented towards industrial computer applications, and the industry in question is very Microsoft centric. And yet, looking at the last 30 days, Chrome has 58% of sessions, IE only 25%, Firefox 6% and Safari 5% (all others are
I surmise that, since the HTTP protocol contains provisions for a "Not Authorized" response, and barring any clearly and previously agreed-on terms, not receiving such response can be construed as implicit authorization.
Rationality and common sense agree with you. Unfortunately, US and UK case law (amongst others) does not . . .
