Actually, the stick is the fact that Gimp and some other notable software now depend on systemd. I have no idea why an image manipulation application needs any particular init daemon, but that is the case.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Interestingly enough, 15.04 is deep into the Beta status and due for release next month. A major change, such as swapping out the init daemon, should be done in Alpha, and far before any Beta release. Certainly not in the month before a release!
Why is everything connected to systemd pushed out in such a hurry? Why isn't systemd getting proper time for review?
Here is the Ubuntu 15.04 release schedule:
The tricky question(and the one that I've been bombarded with vehement and competing answers on, which has left me confused) is whether nuclear isn't cheap; but military procurement slush used to make it look that way; or whether nuclear could have become cheap; but military procurement slush made that unnecessary and potentially even directly inhibited it.
That is pretty much what happened to the space industry, until SpaceX came along. And until SpaceX came along, nobody would have believed that space could be done both more cheaply _and_ more reliably.
Although the third planet from the Sun suffers from crippling gravity and heat, scientists long held that the corrosive atmosphere of oxygen and water vapor is what forbids life as we know it.

Thanks, Lennie. I'm self-learning the whole HTTP (simple) and TLS (not simple) protocols out of interest as I work as an ad-hoc server admin (devops). This one-liner answers a whole slew of questions that I had, and points me in the direction to learn others. Thank you!
The 2 best programmers I have ever worked with in my life, both had little more than high school educations. One quit programming to become a massage therapist. I dont know what it takes in the heart/mind to be a great developer, but I do know that neither a degree in CS or Engineering is a requisite.
Our number 1 dev just quit to work on his film hobby. He was also completely self-taught, no formal education. Some people just 'have it'. Some don't, no matter how long they study.
The "plane" in "airplane" or "spaceplane" refers to the shape of the lifting body (i.e. the wing, technically the bottom of the wing). Just like your hand forms part of a geometric plane when outside that car window, so does the bottom of the wing form part of a geometric plane. It is this plane which forces the air down, hence the term "air-plane".
Since this design generates lift by pushing the air down, it is a "something-plane".
In Firefox set `media.autoplay.enabled` to FALSE (about:confg).
On Titan the view of Saturn is edge-on to the rings as Titan is in the ring plane. So the rings of Saturn would not be visible in the sky.
Seeing the artists get this wrong in the 2009 Star Trek movie is a bit forgiving, as they need to impress their audience. But on Gizmag?!? I would have expected better.
X-14 - FIFY
They clearly call the vehicle Experimental Wingless Space Plane IXV for that reason!
I doubt that gut flora is transmitted through breast milk.
If you've ever changed an infant's diaper you'd have seen that green-yellow mess that comes out for a while.
Kids put everything in their mouth. Put them on the floor, they'll lick the carpets. Unsupervised they'll eat the "poopsicles" in the cat litter, and play with the dogs "turdles." Every time they find something they'll put it in their mouth.
Thanks. In fact, I have changed quite a few diapers and I'd love to change more!
