Definitely. I remember being excited going from a 486 to a Pentium and how much it sped up the X session (which was already snappy enough to work with). It seemed like zero lag user interaction was just around the corner. Instead, we joined Windows in its laggy unresponsiveness. This wasn't just PCs either, even an Atari ST could run a usable monochrome X server. Instead of thoughtful coding, it's frameworks all the way down now.
With latency, if you click, then the display updates then it processes the click, your click goes not where you want, but where the GUI is now. This I find happens more often than I'd like in web "apps". With tree based systems, sure the widget moved, but the assignment of the click to the window was latency free, so your click ends up correctly on the now-moved widged.
IOW tree based systems are superior. Many toolkits abandoned it for compatibility with non tree based systems. What we have now is actually fundementally worse in high latency environments.
Man, this explains a lot. Mainstream Linux GUIs have been going backwards for a long time. But at least we have, uh, well, we already had most of it back then, come to think of it.
I upgraded from 10.something to 14.1 a while back and I'm loving the changes.
But at this point, I think Systemd is not Linux. They should just fork off their own OS the same way Google did.
And then people will hear it in secret places, in the dark corners and hidden holes where there is no one to shine a light and call out the bullshit. And thus does evil grow.
When you are discussing what should and shouldn't be, what *is* is not especially relevant.
I might have been tempted to get a Google+ account. But their attempt to ram it down my throat put me right off the idea.
It's probably worth noting that both times were in automatics. The scenario was: lift foot off brake ready to accelerate, car starts to creep forward, maneuver aborted due to cross traffic (possibly over-cautious), hit brakes...
In a manual car, the car would not even be moving unless the decision had been made to complete the pull-out.
Right turn on red is actually pretty nice though not appropriate in all situations.
Actually, you just reminded me. I did get rear-ended in the UK once. But the car was old, the rear-ending was light and we knew the people so it was just laughed off. Slightly different circumstances though.
Can confirm. Have lived in the US for a good while and the UK roads seemed scarily narrow last time I went back for a vacation. Especially the motorway.
Why should you have to be a citizen? You are aware that people can live in the US legally for long periods of time without becoming a citizen and that most states require you to obtain a local licence within 90 days of becoming a resident?
I agree that the US driving test is pathetic in many states (I'm originally from the UK and have taken car and bike tests in both locations) and accidents are likely somewhat more common here but it's not like this kind of thing never happens in the UK.
I've got too thick a skin to worry about that. But my point is not that the person in front bears any fault, my point is that there is more to the story than just assigning fault.
Can you understand that? Do I need to make it simpler? Do you realize that you and the other poster went off on a rant about something that I was not saying in the least? Even my daughter understood when she was four that it's no good assigning fault to someone else when you're lying in a pedestrian crossing bleeding out because you had right of way over that truck that was barreling down the highway towards the red light at 60mph.

Going the speed of light is bad for your age.
