Anonymous funny guy eh?
I'd wager you're an american ignorant with a notion of history that dates back rougly 70 years, but I'm afraid the US would raze half of Europe to find me, with accusations of terrorism and possession of mass destruction weapons to back them up.

Have all comments that may have a thread of opinion against vaccines been censored?
That is, unless there's something about discussions that I don't understand...
I'm browsing /. with a -1 filter, shouldn't I get all the nasty stuff and trolls and everything in between?

Comment Paris (Score 1) 627 627

I don't know what the fuss is all about, that's just the way waiters treat customers in Paris...
Nothing to see here, move along!
(And before anyone attacks me for my "anti-french" comment, please note that I am French and I do leave in Paris. Or close enough for my taste, at least...)

What are they planning to replace it with? Not Display Port I hope?
Unless you love the new "random dual-screen display", that is.
Plug 'n play on a monitor is a great idea, but terribly badly implemented so far...
In Windows XP, switch off your main monitor and the second one becomes main. Great!
Switch the first one back on and... the second one remains main!
Switch the second one off and... you've got no main monitor anymore!
I had dual Display Port for a week at work before I asked for DVI adapters, which makes my configuration work perfectly.
So no way I'm switching to that unless they improve the current implementation.
