One would think that the Mozilla developers would take their heads out of their collective arse and look at the reality --- the new UI is little more than a Chrome clone, and a poor one at that. If people wanted the new UI, they'd move to the better implementation of it, i.e., Chrome.
Oh wait, they are moving to Chrome....
BSD is a major commodity ecosystem for end-consumer products. I'd wager that there are more MacBooks and iPods out there running OSX and iOS flavors of BSD than there are Linux ones. They just suck in the server space, though, and that's where Linux cannot at the moment be questioned, let alone defeated.
My FreeBSD servers run just fine, thank-you. I moved those servers from Linux to FreeBSD a number of years ago, and never had the need to look back.
.now, if EVERY browser did this, that's another story..
Well, I've put in a similar request with Chrome.
The OpenSSL codebase will get cleaned up and become trustworthy, and it'll continue to be used
Cleanup up and trustworthy? Unlikely. The wrong people are still in charge for that to happen.
Continue to be used? Unfortunately, that is probably correct.
If Firefox were to stop supporting the bank's insecure website, it would surely get their attention better than I've been able to.
*) Feature: now nginx can be build with BoringSSL and LibreSSL. Thanks to Piotr Sikora.
So how was the problem with OpenSSL solved?
Well, the same people, with their same ideas, who could not run a successful project in the past were given large amounts of money to run the project in the future. The summary for this thread reads more like a self-congratulatory press release from the OpenSSL people, rubbing in our faces that they managed to get money to continue their poor project management.
Yet the study picked the best of air travel and compared it to the worst of road-based travel.
I wonder how efficient it would be for me to fly from my house to the supermarket (a mile away), or any of the other numerous trips I make via automobile?
Let me see, first I have to drive three miles to the nearest airport. Get in a plane. Take off. Land at the same airport. Then drive four miles to the supermarket.
Yeah, that's more efficient than driving.
This results in people who had already been working 12 to 14 hour days now having to work extra hours on top of that to cover all the projects.
It's making IBM look like a grossly mismanaged company, grinding its employees down to a bloody nub.
But don't be concerned, there's a Skype channel open on everyone's desktop.
However, the rate of warming has increased, with a correlation to the increase of the warming gases.
Is the correlation 100%? No. However, if we wait until the correlation is 100%, then it will be too late to do anything about the problem.
On the other hand, even if global warming were not caused by humans, shouldn't we be trying to mitigate its effects anyway? Should we be planning for the effects of rising sea waters, instead of (as the skeptics want) just do nothing and let the waters rise?
However, when the sports fan "my team is going to crush your team" mentality starts to creep into the competition, things can, and do, turn ugly.
So the question is, how do the project leaders keep that sports fan mentality out of the project, how do the project leaders keep participants focused upon the goals of the project and not on beating out the other projects?
... if the content of the work itself is made more societally meaningful, women will enroll in droves...
But what if the work does not need to be more "societally meaningful"?
Perhaps the purpose of the work is what it is because that is what is needed.
...why not just focus on having a webpage instead of a shitty application which is just a web page?...
Because it is more difficult for a webpage to harvest a user's personal information. That harvesting is done much more easily within an app that has direct access to said data.
