Except that it's really not that dynamic.
Except that it really is that dynamic. Who speaks DHCP with their ISP anyway. Protip: Often is IPCP on a PPP link.
Of course, silly claims like this
The linux kernel [is] in your desktops, in your web servers, in your cell phones
Not quite, but yeah. Is somewhat prevalent.
your cars, in your televisions, in your game systems, in your embedded devices...
Now your fanboyism is showing. None of those are significantly Linux-driven, which is mostly because of the GPL.
Stop giving Linux credit for what is primarly BSD domain, if anything.
Most BSD are hiding a lot from their user base.
What, are you missing BSD "expert bloggers" and stuff?
Hint: what you're saying is complete nonsense. Their documentation encourages, in numerous places, users to subscribe to their respective mailing lists.
Umm... you need to learn how warrants work.
Does he need to learn how warrants work?
Or do you need to be reminded of the status quo?

Hose 'em down, light it up,
0 pounds of fuel on the jet.
The canonical way are lpstat, lpadmin, lpoptions and friends
Either way, we might as well do it the other way around and consider int foo(); in C and in C++. In one of those languages, foo does take any arguments.
And that compatibility still is important today. For one thing, APIs can be written in C (starting with the POSIX API) and be used by programs written in either C or C++ or in language X, or language Y, or language Z.
FTFY. This is due to calling conventions, not due to a 'language compatibility'
Here's an idea: if you don't know shit about C++, don't post shit about C++?
Here's an idea: If you don't know shit about the basics of programming, don't post, like, at all. Especially avoid calling others idiots when you're at the same time making clear you're even less competent.
Pulling two examples out of my ass:
int *foo = malloc(sizeof *foo);
C++ and C are two different, incompatible languages.
0/10 wouldn't read again.
Disclaimer: I run a BSD and my bash sure as hell was affected.
