That's pretty uninformed.
3x4 Is a very good format for reading, at any rate clearly better than any more elongated format like 9x16.
Not all videos are 9x16; mine are 3x4 and will stay that way; it's a much more balanced format.
Photos are, and will remain, what the photographer wants them to be. Normaly anything between 1x1 and 3x4 for artistic reasons.
Mind you: Computer screen first went to longer formats because that was cheaper to cut when making LCD screens. Movie theater screenings are often even in something like 1x2.2 because of theater hall dimensions. All the talk about longer formats being more natural for humans is nonsense, the drive is purely financial.

It's the customers' fault. EVERYBODY in the IT business already knows that Oracle invariably gives you:
- Bizarely high price
- Incomplete project result
- Project delays
- Low quality
- Extreme vendor lock in
E.v.e.r.y s.i.n.g.l.e p.r.o.j.e.c.t they do.
I'm not sure whther to cry or laugh at this. Just don't go with Oracle, every sane IT professional knows that.

I'm not doing that :) I dislike KDE much, so I'm not even using it, sorry...
I was just trying to say that KDE, as an infrastructure project, seems to take on Debian's system as a distribution of always having a fixed number of well-defined releases "in the air". For Debian ofcourse these are stable, testing, unstable and experimental.
B.t.w. testing is indeed fine to use for desktop systems; it has about the stability of other distributions' stable releases.

The whole goal of owners (of themparks, buses, whatever) is to /make money/.
So in terms of the pictures-farce:
- They will try to deny you your right to take your own pictures, without exception with some clearly false excuse.
- And they hire /the absolute cheapest button-clicker/ they can find!!! An idiot can think of that. And any idiot can /see/ it in any them-park. All these button-clickers are high school students or something alike, /never ever/ a professional photographer, as that would eat into the profit margins.
