Actually we don't expect anything from Microsoft and don't really care what it does. Anymore, at least.
It's like Java, only not terrible.
And only runs on Windows.
And also it's terrible.
DROID4 : phone off = no location tracking? I can do without texts from the GF while about my business being an existential threat to the United States.
I completely do not understand anyone storing even remotely confidential data, much less security-related data, on servers hosted by another organization.
If some douche at Motorola is checking out pics of my GF's ass I will really feel like shooting him in the fucking face.
I'm seriously sick of this shit.
> nothing is free, handling cash is not free, writing checks is not free, setting up DD for employees not likely to stick around more than a year is not free.
Correct, these are called "costs of doing business" and should be treated as such by the employer, not clawed back from the employee. Auctioning off the employees to the card companies adds insult to injury.
Fuck those employers/slave-traders.
Squats - even without weight - will strengthen your legs, back stabilizers and the connective tissue in your knee. Do multiple sets to near-failure.
Planks - get in the "up" position of a push-up and stay there, back straight, for a good 30-60 seconds to start. Repeat several times.

If you don't like it, don't use it.
Oh, how I wish. https://joindiaspora.com/
"As a result, I've lost hundreds of hours in code reviews because some pedant was more interested in picking nits over whitespace than actually reviewing my algorithms"
Stop coding like shit, then. Adopt your organization's coding standards, or lobby to have them changed if they're dumb.
I got a bit queasy reading Jono's post, with the corporate-speak, hand-waving, and magical feel-good thinking.
RMS's statement was well-reasoned and dispassionately delivered. He understands his role in the community and he executed this action perfectly.
Canonical: Fix the offending code, apologize to the community, fire the decision-makers involved.
For my part, I've used Ubuntu almost exlusively for a couple of years now, but have always known the day would come when I need to start looking for alternatives because of corporate overreach.
