I might, if I were gay and into fat people with low self-esteem.
What's your position on this fad of appliances needing networking and whatnot other connections? Especially in the light of other devices (like routers) usually running something that used to be free software 'til the appliance maker got their hands onto it. It is likely that some if not many or even the majority of IoT appliances will run (allegedly) free software in one way or another, and most likely without any regard of the underlying licensing model.
Would you rather see it as a vehicle for OSS to move into everyone's home and literally become a household thing, or is it just yet another abuse of free software by makers of appliances who just like to cut corners?
Sorry, clicked the wrong article. Someone mod the parent of this one (also by me) offtopic if you have some modpoints to spare. Thanks.
When has this happened? I couldn't think of a single instance right now.
Well, technically, RMS has more similarities with Santa...
My understanding is that you will be able to go back forever. You should be able to do it automatically. You may have to call for activation - such has always been the case since the start of activation. The one month is for an automated removal of 10 when following the upgrade path.

I don't know what size tablet he was trying to use, but I do know that when your screen space is really limited, having a huge percentage of it taken up with interface elements is beyond annoying.
On my home desktop at 1280x1024x3, yeah its no big deal.
I shudder at the thought. Imagine people with lower coding skills who resort to cargo cult programming thinking that hey, after all, it's from the biggest OS in the world, it can't be bad code!
Won't fly. Despite all efforts to make smartphones anything BUT a phone, they still are. And hence you still need a carrier.
And carriers won't really enjoy the idea of NOT being able to lock you down to their contract.
Uh, do we have any REAL questions?
That's where pathogens are superior to us. They neither have politics nor religion.
Tell me all about it after you been there. I don't pretend to know. You shouldn't either. Your comprehension of such things is sorely lacking.
What does Slashdot charge for such an infraction?
We are primarily a government contractor, and our main contract had a Siebel-based client management system (only a government would have the combination of money and stupidity to invest in an ancient technology like that, but oh well), and up until late last year, we had to run IE in the lowest security mode and IE7 compatibility mode just to make the ActiveX components function. The new version is by and large HTML5 compatible, and though they recommend Firefox, we've had only a few bumps running Chrome. I doubt more than a handful of our staff even use IE now.
