If he is the amount he is charging doesn't change, he just ends up earning less per hour. If the builder is an hourly employee he will be getting paid hourly but the company he works for will make less money or even lose money. You are an employee, you receive an hourly wage or a salary for your efforts. If the company finds your efforts lacking they can fire you.

RMS is a fascist really. If the guy had to make a living he'd see different. He may be unpaid but we all can't live in our offices at MIT. His position gives him the ability to live how he lives, it wouldn't work for most.
Wish I could mod this up.
Really? I guess you have an old tube TV?
You missed my point about the big screen too? The Wii's biggest issue is computing and graphics power. Everybody I know that owns a Wii just wishes that Nintendo had released an update with a faster processor and better graphics. I knew Nintendo made a mistake the first time I saw the Wii U. They are know at the point were they need to start targeting other platforms to survive as the result of their shortsightedness.
I like playing on my big screen with my kids, our handheld devices don't facilitate family interaction. Nintendo effed up.
Mod parent up a million. Everybody I know just wanted an updated Wii that could play the newest games and compete with the PS3 and XBox 360 at a cheaper price point.
I can't believe this made it to the front page. Did anybody look at the other stories on that site?
You don't know the situation so it is easy to pass judgment.
Just like I can't view your license plate in public as you drive by heh? If its public its fair game.
I have a 4 year old that knows how to FaceTime, knows where to look at in contacts and knows who is who. You can lock the phone down. I'm assuming you are traveling or getting divorced and reserving judgment unlike most on here.
And its showing why the marketplace leads to better solutions.
LOL, yeah, that is why Linux doesn't' exist on the desktop. I use it all the time at work for projects but it stopped being a personal desktop for me roughly 6-7 years ago... maybe longer, can't remember anymore. I stuck with OS/2 until 96-97 too so it isn't like I don't give alternatives a chance past their obvious primes. My first Linux installation was Slackware 2.4 and the last one I personally used was Ubuntu X.X. Luckily Apple took FreeBSD and made it very usable and so I have a MBP now. I have a Nexus 7 though so I can claim to still be a Linux user.
And Slashdot needs to let you edit after posting...
