The craze over frame rate and resolution is due to exclusives being relatively minor. This means that most games a player might be interested in are available on both platforms, but not with exactly the same performance. Most games play slightly better on PS4, which means that unless Xbox One exclusives are what drives your purchase, PS4 tends to be a better choice
I doubt 4K will be the focus of the next generation. This generation already the issue is more frame rate, with games struggling to keep it high enough and constant at 1080p or even lower. Also I'd rather have some breakthrough with VR than 4K.
That is, if you didn't see the light go from red to green, you have no idea how much time is left on the clock and should be prepared to stop.
After turning green from red, how long will it stay green? 50 seconds? 10 seconds? 4 seconds? Basically you have no idea either.
As Linus expects others to write proper code, I expect people to conduct proper communication.
Linus expects proper code from those who contribute to his project: what you do in your own project is your business. Similarly, you are free to expect people to conduct "proper communication" within the communities *you* control, but not to force your expectations to communities *other people* control.
Experience is overrated. An inexperienced team of reasonably smart developers can learn and implement one of the simplest git workflows very quickly. I'd actually expect them to do that by themselves, without the need of babysitting.
From what you describe the problem is not the team being inexperienced, it's the team being dumb, indisciplined and unprofessional. With such a team I think the choice of VCS is the least of your problems and even plenty of "experience" won't help that much in the long run.
Because brakes might not be enough: then the decision becomes: "do I hit the obstacle or attempt to dodge it? Hitting the obstacle might mean a lower risk for the passenger of the car, but a huge risk for the obstacle. Attempting to dodge might mean a higher risk for the passenger of the car but a much lower risk for the obstacle.
If the obstacle is a dog you might want to prioritise the passenger of the car's safety, but if the obstacle is a kid you might want to attempt to dodge even if the passenger is put at higher risk.
More importantly, it will eventually lead to huge profits as current computers are already far safer drivers than human beings.
Not necessarily since a lower risk should translate into a lower insurance premium. Actually in some fields it's very strictly regulated and the insurance company is mandated by law to pay back to the insured any risk-based surplus within a few years. Of course if you instead give the insurance free rein...
Because if you want me to "act professional", I can tell you that I'm not interested. I'm sitting in my home office wearign a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what "acting professionally" results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways.
