I guess this is regional. At least in Canada you can be laid off (with reasonable compensation) fairly easily, but you cannot be fired for no reason at all - that's called wrongful dismissal and the employee can/will sue you and win.
Writing service files for my own daemons or modifying existing ones is pretty close to trivial. The files are short, easy to understand, and there isn't any risk of runaway child processes like there is with a sysvinit init script making them close to trivial to write and maintain. If anything I would say that's why so many distros are jumping on board.
I had to write service files as an early adopter, but it would also be useful for anyone rolling out their own daemons or that needed to tweak the behaviour of an existing service for their own needs. I imagine it would also lead to fewer packaging bugs.
Trinity Desktop Environment isn't dead: when I wrote this the last git update was 5 minutes ago (https://git.trinitydesktop.org/cgit/). It's just very very niche, so don't expect much help from your distro.
It's probably easiest to try out on Arch Linux: https://wiki.archlinux.org/ind...
Yes, it would have been interesting if he used at least some original game boy parts, but nope, all new hardware inside the case.
Hopefully someone posts a followup where they actually rig up the original screen and inputs.
Curious if you have a citation for 'literally'. Not because I don't believe you, but because I'd really like to read the story.
When I used SLiM I got around those errors with ConsoleKit in my
Assuming he's referring to the speech to text exploit, the proof of concept works in Chromium as well. (http://guya.net/security/speech/)
I haven't tested the earlier mic keeps listening after enabled bug.
The actual article where he says Plasma Next will not (at least initially) support Wayland is: http://blog.martin-graesslin.c...
He's not telling you to read the linux source code, he's telling you to read the "Reference" compositor. i.e. it is meant to be the example code.
Everyone already knows where the Toronto mayor buys his drugs.
My dad installed aftermarket cruise control for the first time because a drive that should have taken 5 hours took 3. It just use to be hard to maintain speed for a long time: some people always followed others, some people checked the speedometer all the time, some people drifted faster or slower, and maybe a tiny number actually managed to keep a more or less constant speed; but it certainly wasn't some skill that everyone use to have and now no one has. It was invented to overcome a shortcoming.
Whenever I click 'Load More Comments' I'm taken back to the main page - perhaps because I'm running NoScript? I can't post either.
Also it's ugly, and the font choice for comments here (linux firefox) are not pretty.
In the past features have migrated from KDE once they've gone beyond proof of concept and shown themselves to be more generally useful. I imagine that trend can/will continue. Having both so modular will probably make migrating components from KDE to QT even easier.
