... they can figure out how to migrate to a language with a guarantee of long-term support, development, etc. As for Linux developers, there are plenty of languages without the baggage and threat of legal issues from a convicted monopolist.
'Researchers' from Israel? Hmmm
... forgive me if I don't trust them. Israel, and Israeli 'searchers' work closely WITH the NSA ... not AGAINST it.
Why stop killing people, when you can continue killing them, but cheaper and with less do-gooders whinging about human rights violations? Quick questions
... it's the Christians who oppose euthanasia, correct?
I've given it a go, on and off. It's becoming usable. It appears to use motif or some god-aweful toolkit. But it's head and shoulders about the rest, from what I can tell.
Sadly, the rt-linux project is all but dead. http://lwn.net/Articles/617140... Unless this changes quickly, such linux-based projects will no longer be possible.
I'd push Postgresql to its limits, with an "impressively spec'd" machine ( ie > 100GB RAM, SSDs ) before purchasing anything else. This is more than enough for most people who think they need a data warehouse appliance. From there, I'd switch to Netezza, for a number of reasons, including Netezza being based on Postgresql ( so the porting effort is not *too* large ). It's also a LOT cheaper than other data warehouse appliances. The hardware is very impressive, and it's very simple to use and optimise. As for ETL tools, I avoid pre-packaged ETL tools like the plague. Roll something yourself - it's not that hard. If you're after some professional consultants, I work in this field. My blog: http://tesla.duckdns.org/
... which has details of getting the ( free ) Netezza emulator VM working on Linux. My employer: http://www.smart-associates.bi... ... we have an ETL framework that targets Netezza ( amongst other DBs ).
Enlightenment DR19. Fast, stable, and nicely looking ( including compositing effects that Gnome hasn't had since Compiz went away ).
I've been building open-source classes for Forms, Datasheets, and Reports for many years now. Check out my stuff on CPAN: http://search.cpan.org/~dkasak... I primarily use Gtk+ and Perl. The libraries on CPAN use Gtk2, but I've got Gtk3 ports ready to release now. The amazing advantage to moving to Gtk3 for me is the 'broadway' HTML5 backend. Email me @ email@example.com and I'd be happy to work with you on this.
They need to quit launching things into space and concentrate on cleaning up their nuclear waste which is leaking into my ocean.
- We live in a 4-dimensional universe, NOT a 3-dimensional one. Perhaps someone is forgetting time??? - A hypersphere is a 4-dimensional sphere, not a 3-dimensional one. Also the idea that 'space is expanding' is absurd ( and this study perpetuates this idea by claiming they've discovered an explanation for it ). Space is not absolute; it's relative. To say that space is 'expanding' in this context means nothing. The RELATIVE distances of objects to each other may be changing. This is not the same thing as space expanding. Is there something *beyond* the furthest reach of space, that space is now approaching? It's a ridiculous thing to say.
Why the hell would anyone buy organic produce from China? People who choose organic are also usually choosing local produce, for similar reasons ( environmental impact ). Certainly I only buy local ( when I can't source the food from my own organic garden ).
What a stupid statement! Do you know what 'organic' is supposed to mean? If you have found ( God knows how you verified it ) some organic produce that had pesticide residue, you should report it and have the organic certification stripped.
The OP was asking about 'confiscating' *excess* wealth. No-one wants to take your Hummer ( well OK
... I think these these should be banned too ... but that's another dicsussion ).
It's a good question, and unfortunately for you, the answer that is in the US, there is a very strong culture of competition, accompanied with a disdain for helping others. Think 'reds under the bed'. Also note the stupid wank who posted 'fucking communist'. People like that are EVERYWHERE in the US - the whole social structure is decaying. Many people still buy the whole 'if we just remove all restrains on corporations and taxes, everything will be roses and lollypops'. It will take some very severe shocks to shake people out of this mentality
... and frankly ... very severe shocks is precisely what the US deserves. Let's see round 2 of the internetional financial market collapse ...
I agree with a lot of what you're saying
... however ... his service wasn't *necessarily* for illegal copying. Sure, that's what it was mostly used for. But it's a pretty slippery slope when you expect service providers to actively prevent copyright infringement.
