Soo... that's a pretty artificially sadistic case. Does anybody really run hypervisors under hypervisors commonly? Virtualbox under Xen? Really?
These are three daemons in an IPC architecture. Together they make up an application.
Then sysvinit is a bunch of service configuration files disguised as bash scripts knitted together with an init to make up an application. Hell, they use an API in the form of passed arguments, which you might call even more application-like than IPC!
Whoo hoo! My 51" hdtv's EDID data says it's 7" in size. Everything's coming up Milhouse!
Seek to understand the various levels of abstraction available in any problem -- and to solve the problem at the appropriate level. It's a complicated lesson, and something that will take a long time to get right, but once you do, so many things fall out naturally, like clean and reusable code, the need for different languages and tools, design patterns, and on and on and on.
I've lived in places with the mailbox-cluster idea in Canada. Personally, I love it. It's especially great for parcels that would otherwise be left on a doorstep or taken back to a depot.
What happens here is that the mailbox-clusters have a a small number of large mailboxes. If you have a parcel, it goes in one of the large mailboxes. Then the key to that mailbox is put in your personal mailbox. You open it, take your parcel, and lock the key inside. Awesome.
This is one of those cases where hitting a score of 5 doesn't quite cut it. The double-standard here is pretty stark and depressing.
Have you even tried Gnome 3? There really are no "3D" effects. Just because it's using advanced features of your video card doesn't make it 3D.
The closest thing you'll see is that when you switch from a "Show me all my windows in an overlay" view, the windows will shrink/grow into place, which *in that tiny point of time* helps associate the zoomed-out tile with the window that's there.
Unity has some other plugins for 3D effects if you really want them, but they're hidden away because they're more like tech demos than real features.
a) You and your wife will have more book than you did before.
b) If you would have bought those books anyways, Amazon will have lost the money you would have spent on them.
Voice is data. It happens to not be very much data, based on how we compress it. Charge it for what it is.
There is the little catch that we want it to be low latency, and in that sense it may well be worth charging a bit of a premium for it.
Make it usable for morons but hidden beneath the surface is everything a geek wants.
So, kind of like Gnome-shell, a simple intuitive interface, with a plugin infrastructure that lets developers change just about anything?
With all these companies suing each other out of doing business, exactly what is the impact on the economy? Can a weakened economy afford this kind of nonsense?
Of course, the law firms on laughing to the bank.
The internet is all about communication, be it with other individuals, corporations, etc.
Would you let a 7 or 8 year old talk to random people from around the world without supervision? No?
Then you may want to consider just making sure that there's a human with your children while they're using the thing, until they're at an age where you choose to trust them on their own for a bit. You'll be there to explain the odd random thing that happens.
You can have a task with an extension if you really want one.
That said, you really have to try the overview-style. Whack the windows-key, and you very quickly have almost the entire screen used to select windows, meaning you can see which one you're interested very easily and go to it. It takes some getting used to.... but the added bonus of the zoom-out view being live updates means you get the ability to monitor many windows simultaneously for interesting updates, without needing to throw in a different user-interface to clutter things up.
