Stop ruining his outburst with science.
Elemental lithium does, yes.
Lithium compounds in batteries, not so much.
Don't forget about the billions of phones that already exist that don't have a kill switch.
You could just parallel import your phone too. Unless it's one of those "Designed in California" phones.
A driver is code to interface between an abstraction layer and the hardware.
Sounds like those three disks were not DOS drivers, but SVGA Air Warrior drivers.
If that's your intention, nothing stops a camera from taking pictures.
Putting your phone in flight mode would also stop a kill switch command, but still let you take photos and videos.
Software on phones must be free software so that users can know exactly what the phone is doing
Good luck accomplishing that when cellular carriers routinely abandon previous network stacks before their respective 20-year patents expire.
What about when they try to bite your hand off for assaulting them?
You don't need a kill switch built in to the phone. You just cut the service off at the carrier.
The capability already exists.
All this paranoia about "Oh no, the government could silence me when I'm at a protest!". They could already do it if they wanted to.
They could ask your carrier to cut off your network access. You'd be restricted to WiFi.
If a kill switch was built in to the phone but you've taken out your SIM and only used WiFi, they wouldn't have access to the kill switch.
If you're paranoid, there is no difference.
That is also the picture, that does not include a puppy
Young seals and young dogs are both pups.
or a kitten
Now I get it: a seal pup looks cute because it combines most of the appearance of a dog with the whiskers of a cat and even shorter legs than a dachshund or corgi.
Lack of offline help
How much space would it take on the install disc to have full manuals for all included packages translated into all supported languages?
I still think KDE and Gnome still look a bit "Fisher Price" compared to a commercial GUI like Windows or Mac
If you'll remember, Windows XP's default theme was considered "Fisher-Price" until people saw Windows 8's Start Screen.
A desktop customized version of Android
Won't have the Google Play Store. The Android CDD requires that apps run in the full screen (or at least think that they're running in the full screen). This means the calculator app fills your entire 24" monitor, obscuring whatever else you're working on.
