Comment: technology as religion. (Score 0) 445

A person who believes in the singularity is someone who only barely grasps the exponential function, and doesn't understand that technological progress is linear.
It's technology as religion. believed by those, who like other religions aren't well educated. Or peddled by people who want to make a buck selling a utopian like future.

To be fair, as of right now it's only the dependencies of gnome force you to use systemD.
Come the next couple of versions though gnome's entire desktop environment will be dependent on systemD, why?
They are going to link it to systemD's handling of c-groups to do per user and per process sandboxing.

Tropes are not evil or negative.
Calling them as such is like saying grammar causes violence, or spelling teaches boys to rape.

Tropes are literary tools, just like spelling and grammar are. And just like how only certain combinations of letters in our alphabet make words.
Plot points can only combine in certain ways and keep the story readable. These are tropes and some tropes are more popular than others, damsel in distress is one of them because it's simple.

Priced out of existence, 10's if not 100's of thousands per pill with no insurance coverage along with the high blood pressure version suddenly removed from market.
Oh but the diluted version that doesn't 'cure' it but lessens symptoms once developed will have full health coverage from the insurance companies and at most possibly be close to 100 dollars per pill without it.

And it is at this time the realities of what they are doing finally hit home.
Don't forget these are the same people who decried NASA on their obsession on safety calling it government over spending.

Don't mind me. I am just sitting here, amused, as i watch these people relearn the same lessons that NASA and the Soviet space program learned over 50 years ago because they believe that their 'free market' 'privately run' space program by some magic makes them immune to the same problems.

It's a naive, domestic operating system without any breeding, but I think you'll be amused by its presumption.
