Uh... no. STTNG was definitely *NOT* before the Internet.
It was, however, before Eternal September.
But wouldn't people who can afford luxury cars also be less likely to be concerned about the price of the gasoline in the first place?
I realize this is going to be far from universally true, but one of the major reasons to go with an electric car is because it's cheaper to run than a gas-powered vehicle. That advantage sort of shoots itself in the foot when the vehicle itself costs a significant premium above what a person who is likely to be concerned about fuel economy is able or willing to pay.
First all, reprap doesn't print a printer. It prints a kit which you can assemble into a printer. Sure a kit can be useful, but it's not the same thing as printing an actual usable printer.
Secondly, reprap prints only the plastic parts of the printer,but misses out on the electronics and few metal components which are actually required to make a complete functional device, and which must be purchased separately.
You're aware that Vitamin C occurs entirely naturally though, right?
Something developing a resistance to a vitamin is not as serious in terms of health as it would be if it developed resistance to a man-made treatment.
GNU carries a philosophy and Linux does not.
I agree completely with this, which is why I think that trying to prepend "GNU" onto Linux is a rather foolishidea.
The GNU project was a project to develop a free OS and tools.
All works developed for the GNU project were released under the GNU license. Numerous other projects were released under the same license as well.
Linux was a project to develop a free drop-in (and superior) replacement for Minix, and although released under the GNU license, and was distributed with GNU tools, it was never actually part of the GNU project, any more than AIX or HPUX would have become part of the GNU project by replacing their standard tools with GNU equivalents (I personally used an HPUX system at university which had all of the standard tools replaced with GNU ones, but that wouldn't suddenly change the name of that system to GNU/HPUX).
The notion that without the GNU tools, a Linux distribution would not be usable, and therefore the GNU prefix should be applicable to Linux also ought to apply to Minix itself, which like Linux, was never part of the GNU project (and was released under a different license), but was practically unusable out of the box, and most users of it took the source code to the GNU tools, which was freely and readily available, and compiled them to run under Minix to create a usable system. Minux, starting from approximately v 3 onwards, actually started being distributed with the GNU tools to make it more fully functional out of the box, but nobody ever tries to call Minix GNU/Minix.
Linux is Linux. GNU/Linux is just a name that people who were tired of waiting forever for Hurd wanted to call it so they feel like they had some closure.
I hope they pull this off.
I look forward to an age where couriers can actually be relied upon to deliver such goods without subjecting them to g forces beyond what their structural integrity can withstand.
