Don't know why you think it's God's domain. The article doesn't pretend that they are alive. It's not any different than the G.I. Joe dolls or even the merchandise Hollywood puts out resembling movie characters.
how about another corrupt obamacare law passed where obamacare not about you but his buddies at high places at microsoft or google and passes a law where everyone must buy windows 10, or sign up for google+ else they get to pay a fucking tax penalty.. fuck that retard including his vice president biden and the rest of his gang
You are incorrect. At the time of the Amiga, the Apple II, the Commodore 64, and other such machines, only the IBM PC was a "Personal Computer." It was a brand, not a generic term. The "generic" term was "micro computer".
PC only became a generic term when there was a flood of PC-compatible machines from other vendors on the market. And in response to the genericization of that brand, IBM tried to rebrand their next iteration of machines "Personal System/2", or PS/2, and this time lock things down to prevent competition.
You kids really need to read some old Byte magazines from the period before you go opening your bullshit-spewing mouths.
Why would any sane person want to associate themselves with him?
For the same reason that people walk around wearing Che Guevara t-shirts while buying $5 cups of coffee.
That has nothing to do with the wording people are arguing over
No, that's EXACTLY what people are arguing about. You say "A is ten times smaller than B" when B is already understood to be small compared to something else. The implication in that sentence is that B is already known for its smallness, and A is even smaller. Except, people use that same construction even when B isn't considered small. They use that incorrect connotation when what they're really trying to say is, "B is big, but A is only a tenth as big."
A is ten times smaller than B
So what you're saying is, "B is already small, and A is even smaller."
Are you presuming that someone already understands B to be considered small? What is B small compared to?
Debian also got out of its way and is updating all servers to systemd without our asking
There's a simple reason for this: Debian is not a democracy. I don't know where people get these silly ideas. It's a project run by a few core maintainers who make all the decisions. Linux on the whole is about choice, choice of which distribution you run, and choice of how to configure that distribution within its provided parameters.
The only thing new here is that suddenly its a parameter you actually care about. Nothing else has changed in the way systems are run.
Don't like it? Why not support one of the forks?
Any unfinished editing is lost, connections are torn down forcefully.
I don't cry about this. Too many programs out there assume that the only scenario for them is a perfectly and ordered shutdown, and then if something happens such as lockups, system crashes, or power outages there is suddenly as massive amount of data lost or corrupted. Maybe this will force some people to actually write their software in a more tolerant way.
No different than when the "talkie" was expected to revolutionize education. The thing that drives teacher count and pay is the need to adapt the education to individual pupils.
Moreover, if the Tech doesn't have any child skills, it will likely be a 1:20 ratio, and you are right back at $1/student hour just for the tech.
Change needs to happen, but the most economical solution is parent involvement.
What makes you think that any open source project is democratic?
Is there any proof or are the faster boot times just on the wish list?
I can't remember where but I distinctly remember reading that systemd does NOT provide the fastest boot times. Faster than sysvinit in many scenarios, but not faster than some other parallel startup setups.
But then really fast boot times was not at all the point. It was more of a side effect of being an event based init system rather than a linear list of scripts executed in order. In fact the speed of boot is not mentioned on the project page, and even Poettering's blog only mentions that it's faster than Upstart in Fedora 17 and only due to one specific reason.
Yes, because doing something along the lines of "apt-get install kde-full" is such an onerous task that I couldn't even think of using an OS that would force me to do that.
Oh is that all it takes? Okay then: SYSTEMD SUX. Now where's my +5 insightful?
GP is reading from his own CV. He also has 3 years experience in doing the needful with Java 9.
And you don't? How do you ever have a hope of finding a job in IT? Next you're going to tell me you don't have 3 years experience as a Windows 10 admin. Maybe this industry just isn't for you.
