From my own experience in Finland, I can't really agree.

Too bad that sauna is usually single-sex in Finland.
They're a bit on the prudish side
Just FYI: Side-loading is perfectly possible on WindowsRT and Windows Phone. Doesn't cost a penny and is not too difficult.
Sola dosis facit venenum. Even the most toxic substance on earth (Botulinum toxin) is used in medicine (yes, there are uses beyond the cosmetic area) and safe at the levels used.
Geeze, guy, I said that they don't have to pay back the debts immediately. It's not my problem if you are unable to read.
Nowhere did I say that they don't have to pay back the debts forever. I said that they _currently_ don't have to pay them back. I also mentioned the ten years. I also posted a link. If you're that dense then I can't help you. Moron.
Please, before you're starting to talk you should take time to inform yourself. Yes, they do owe a lot of money to diverse governments and governmental institutions. And, no, they currently don't have to pay that money back and they don't currently have to pay interest.
Paying back money will begin in 10 years time (if ever, actually). This is also the reason why cutting their debt to the EU totally wouldn't change their current position one bit because, again, they currently don't have to pay their debts anyway!
However, don't confuse that money with what they're owing to private investors.
In short, stop talking, you're making yourself look like a fool.
Wrong. They currently don't even have to pay the interest.
Well, what do you expect me to do? Use chalk to theoretically discuss my Physics experiments on a slate?
Granted, I am doing that from time to time but I'm also a bit annoyed when my pupils still have to use pencil and paper to write down the data from experiments they're doing. That may be worthwhile the first two or three times to show them the ropes, but after that it gets old fast.
Or take chemistry classes - so, first the pupils have to draw the molecular structures on their paper and then draw it again on the whiteboard. That takes time which could be spent on actually discussing the problem.
There are countless of other examples where technology can speed up several processes quite a bit, particularly when it comes to sharing results.
It's the lightfield that's the kicker. Because that makes it NOT a simple 'picture projected onto a surface'. With this technology, your eyes should be able to focus on different parts of the image and actually getting the results your eyes expect.
Thus it should be possible to include a correction for near- or farsightedness. Your other complaints are merely showing your lack of imagination.
Must be you. I still have that check box.
That's why it's actually illegal to make a photo of anything in the room where you take the vote. At least that's the case here in Germany.
That was a time when you could actually easily fix something. Take cars, for example. Fixing a modern car aside from trivial cases is not easy.
Hell, even exchanging a broken lightbulb can pose major problems.
So, the only thing between Cryptolocker and your user's files was the FILESYSTEM? And you think the problem was the OS?
Seriously, this thing was actually running on your Linux distribution (as you yourself admit) and the only thing that saved you was that it wasn't (yet) adapted to the filesystem. So, pray tell, how is Linux the magical mystery sauce which saves the day?
That's like saying: "Oh, H5N1 is only dangerous to birds, we mammals don't need to worry at all."
The mechanisms of Cryptowall work under any OS. Stupid answer of yours. Oh, well, you are an Anonymous Coward after all.
Cryptowall encrypts the data it has access to. It does not need admin rights to do shitloads of damage. This means that Cryptowall could work just as well under Linux / MacOS or any other OS out there.
