I see Gamestop and other retailers will have access to the MS database for authorization of keys for games but what about person to person? What happens if I purchased it second hand off of Ebay/Amazon/Craigslist and they didn't deauthorize the game from their account before selling. Am I to pay a small fee on top of the purchase of the game to be legit, file a dispute with Ebay/Amazon? This will just add more cost on to them and I hope they push back. If the publishers want more money how about you quit spending $10+ million on making a game and charging $60 for the privilege to sit and wait for patches to be downloaded and installed before we can play because you rushed it out to market to fast. How about you actually make a complete game that doesn't require spending $X more for DLC that should've included in the first place. Its stunts like this that make me long for the days of cartridges.
Hell I was in drunken stupor for two weeks over Trebek losing his mustache. I finally decided it wasn't worth fretting over a Canadian and his silly lip hair after waking up one morning with 2 ladies of lower standing telling me I'm their babies' daddy.
Whats your view on the current trend of desktops to be more like their tablet/phone cousins? Do you see any features that can be brought over from either side without sacrificing usability? Also how do you feel about black turtleneck shirts?
We seen how well rolling releases worked for gentoo. Sounds to me you want service pack updates similar to windows and OSX. Which I'm fine with but where do you draw the line on which applications get updated to their newer versions? Are just talking about applications like Firefox, Open Office? What about applications like RhythmBox that are tied to their DE. Hell do we push the latest DE(GNOME/KDE) updates out like you want for Firefox?
Well if by penguin you mean a Thylacine with a fruity logo tattooed on its ass ran by a megalomanical turtle neck wearing hippie, then sure why not. How's that for thinking "outside the regular rectangular prism"
