Gnome 3 Classic doesn't exist in Fedora versions prior to Fedora 19 either, so the argument stands.
If they own the copyright, they are free to relicense a piece of data
Sorry to be pedantic, but replace "a piece of data" with "a work of authorship". If there isn't the creative work of a human being involved, it's not copyrightable. And then we get to this:
17 CFR 102(b) In no case does copyright protection for an original work of authorship extend to any idea, procedure, process, system, method of operation, concept, principle, or discovery, regardless of the form in which it is described, explained, illustrated, or embodied in such work.
And that means that even when the hand of man is involved, a lot of things are still not copyrightable.
Or they needed to wait until there was a stable MATE, given how Gnome 3 still is rather unsuitable for server use, including remote desktops, VMs and heterogeneous environments.
Let's look at what Oracle is doing. I'll start the list of moves that appear to be intended to alienate the community around the very software they're promoting and cause the Open Source community to create viable forks that end up absconding with the product and its market. You guys contribute additional examples...
- Oracle v. Google regarding Java and the premise that APIs are copyrightable.
- Apache OpenOffice v. LibreOffice (which has a full-time negative publicity generator in Rob Weir).
- MySQL v. MariaDB.
IBM isn't known for dumb moves, but partnering with Oracle on this sure is one.
And this kis why dual licensing is sucha bad idea -- enemies of the project have an incentive to buy the primary developer and only continue development under the worst of the licenses.
Video and podcasts are difficult to follow if you have bad hearing, if it's not in your first language, or if you're in an environment that makes it hard to hear clearly.
I've basically given up altogether on video presentations like this one for such reasons. If it's not important enough for you to provide a transcript, it's not worth my time to try to puzzle out what you are trying to say.
Or they get free advertising for having the artifacts placed in a museum and a finders fee for discovering those items.
Non-broadcasting SSID, MAC filtering and WEP serve the same purpose as door locks. They do little to stop criminals, but they help keeping honest people honest.
And,a wildebeest doesn't need to be able to outrun a lion; only outrun its neighbour wildebeest. Unless you are specifically targeted, you only need to have better protection than your neighbour.
And if you're specifically targeted, it's not the WiFi router that is going to save you. A hard shell only means there will be other, softer parts. Turtles are awfully tasty. You need security from the ground up, inside your network.
Yeah, why bother getting two dozen routers for that price, when you can go buy just one!
You know what bridges and repeaters are?
Anyhow, 802.11g doesn't cut it. If it doesn't do 5 GHz band, it's not worth it.
There is no god, and therefore there arte no god-given right.
One may say that government _recognizes_ the right instead of granting it, but the difference is purely cosmetic -- it is government's decision as implemented in law, what is and what is not a right, and someone may agree or disagree with it, but there is nothing objective about it, at best government implements what majority of people believe to be important right. However as history progresses, this changes -- for example, owning slaves was a right in early US, and now it is not.
rights of the government
Powers of the government and rights of the people, not the other way around.
Here's a preliminary "best practice" guide: http://www.prace-project.eu/Best-Practice-Guide-Intel-Xeon-Phi-HTML?lang=en
Seems OpenMP and openMPI are both available, so typical hybrid systems should at least run out of the box, though you'll of course need a fair bit of tuning to make full use of the thing. It should be less work than adapting a system for running on a GPU though.
... then you must be guilty. Now they have it all figured out.
