Sounds like they're damned near ready to release Windows 10.

My Surface Pro 3 (so not random OEM PoS) often needs a reboot because its sensors crapped out when the thing woke up from sleep. Wi-Fi is a semi-stable solution that could use some serious polishing. The keyboard frequently gets a key logically stuck, which isn't fixable without a reboot and precludes any productivity (try doing *anything* with CTRL held down and you'll see what I mean).

In all seriousness, I hope they decide to polish first, release later for a change

The fucking "summary" is wrong.

If you read the warrant application, the feds state the following:
- He did try to access the IFE box, as evidenced by physical damage.
- It is possible that he interfaced with the IFE systems and *possibly* other aircraft systems

Nowhere did they say: "This guy accessed flight control systems."

Frankly, Health of the General Population > Freedom of religion.

If your "religion" demanded that you fire a machine gun into the air for 5 minutes a day, you'd find very little tolerance for it.

Either scenario has a probability of harming someone around the same order of magnitude, I guesstimate. So why should the first be any different?

Don't panic.
