Custom OS is not about what is in it but all about what is left out. Custom OS for appliances that only has in it what is actually necessary for that appliance

Your mouth to Microsoft and Apple's ears. I want an OS that does nothing but run my programs and stay out of my way. I can get my own browser thanks.

If y'all could just get Linux to run current AAA games, and some professional music & audio software, I'd never spend another nickel with Microsoft or Apple.

there are also those screaming "racist" at everything even when it isnt and it seems to have been this way for the past 10 years now here.

I can't imagine why anyone would see racism in today's USA.

Those loans were made irresponsibly, to a country that the bankers knew could not afford to repay them. The people who made them didn't expect to get paid back by Greece, they expected to get paid back by another EMF bailout of Greece.

Not just irresponsibly, but with predatory intent.

The IMF is a payday loan outfit. They're a loan shark who's happy to lend your restaurant money to stay in business with the hope that when you can't pay, they'll burn you down for the credit default swaps. The IMF are some of the evilest SOBs on the planet.

Central banks are not funded by taxpayers. The IMF for example was funded by the US in a budget-neutral manner, as an exchange of assets. Translation: the IMF's money is created out of thin air. That the IMF won't give Greece any of their created money is shameful, sociopathic, criminal, and utterly unnecessary.

That was the first post to show actual insight into the situation.

I really don't think they'll have much say in the matter.

Of course they have a say in the matter. Wait until tomorrow to see the panicked offers of help from Germany, because make no mistake, if Greece leaves the Euro, it's worse for Germany and England than it is for Greece.

Greece will survive. The Euro may not, now that people realize that the whole thing was a scam and the loan shark can be chased out of town.

I've been a developer for 17 years. My name is in the kernel changelog. I've designed and built custom servers with power tools. I use Mac Pros for work.

It seems GP might think that Apple only makes iPhones. Mac Pros, which run certified Unix (OS X) are possibly the _best_ option for serious professionals. There are also a couple other companies making one or two choices in well-built hardware you can install enterprise Linux on, of course.

You don't say.

My name is in the kernel changelog

Man, dude is thirsty.

It's a shame Apple doesn't really care about Macs any more. Could that be what's making you so insecure that you feel you have to flash all your bona fides in a story about an Apple product's intrusiveness?

Please, don't hate.

Oh, look who's being the SJW now. Don't mistake laughing at the ridiculous for hatred.

Here are some of Alex Jones' "mark my words" predictions:

Bank runs in February 2009. 9/11-scale terror attacks in 2010. 50% of the U.S. population will be killed in a bio-weapons attack in 2009. 16 year-old soldiers will enforce nationwide martial law by 2012. A major terror attack will occur in the U.S. by the end of summer 2009 (oh, and it’s a false flag). The U.S. will go to war with Russia in 2009. Texas stores are being looted and National Guard troops are moving into Austin right this minute (December 31, 1999). The UN will announce the presence of ET intelligence during 2009 to stage a NWO takeover. The U.S. dollar will be devalued by 50% by 2012.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Even David Icke laughs at Alex Jones for being dopey.
