I stopped reading when I reached the point of him complaining that the additional buttons in the login and lock screens are "distracting". That must be some kind of a joke - if your computer is locked or you haven't logged on, then you are not currently using it! How can you be complaining of it being distracting? Are you just staring at the lock screen? The problem with all these moronic reviews is that the reviewers don't actually use computers for a purpose other than reviewing. It creates an absurd situation where the reviews are not only useless, but laughable.
You are such a sexist pig. Shame on you. (BTW, women are also badly trailing men in other occupations like mining or welding)
If you need six displays for software development, something is seriously wrong with you.
Yep, a kickstarter campaign will work miracles for a medical systems startup. Good one.
Absolutely! OpenSSL should have been written in Python. In fact I am starting a new fork of OpenSSL called PythonSSL - we will be rewriting the codebase in Python to finally improve the performance and get rid of the horrible looseness of the abomination called "static typing" and declaring your variables, replacing it with dynamic typing where bugs are impossible.
Pfffft. Who cares? Let's all hate Google. How dare a for profit company not give out everything for free? Those greedy bastards!
Oh, and Google stole all my personal information by showing me ads when I used the services they provide for free in exchange for showing ads. Google's evilness knows no boundaries!
You are saying "I am a vegan" as if it is a disease and not your own choice. Nobody is forcing you to be a vegan. If there aren't enough vegan products, the solution is simple: don't be one.
I am in a much more difficult situation myself: I only eat foods which contain meat. I have to tell you, no food producers and no restaurants are sensitive to my needs! Those bastards. I have been asking for meatball bread at my local Safeway for years, but they simply ignore me and laugh at me. Insensitive clods!
Really, moron? I happen to be from the Mediterranean...
Oh, please, spare us the pretentiousness. Of course the main reason people drink is to get intoxicated. That is why wine exists. You may like to pretend that you enjoy it purely for the taste, but that is horseshit. As a society we have cultivated a "taste" for wine/single-malt scotch/whatever simply to justify our alcoholism and to make it more varied and fun.
I don't dispute that it is useful, but it is less so than it might appear at first sight. IntelliJ IDEA already could automatically collapse anonymous inner classes into lambdas in the IDE, even with Java 6.
The huge disappointment is that they *could* have supported real closures, just like C#. I am not aware of a technical reason not to. But they didn't, and the whole hoopla is about a very mild syntactic improvement, just as generics were.
Sadly you are wrong. Java8 lambdas offer nothing over anonymous classes because, unlike C#, they only capture read-only variables, exactly as do anonymous classes. It is a sad joke.
You only see buzzwords because you don't understand the technical differences, not because the technical differences are not there. Debian guarantees a fully reproducible build environment. I can rebuild anything in Debian, even the whole distribution, without any special effort and be confident that I will get exactly the same binaries (modulo timestamps and signatures).
That may or may not be important to you personally, but it is a big deal technically and there is an extraordinary amount of technical details and additional work that goes into achieving it.
