What does BMW stand for?
Big Money Waster.
I heard it was "Bought My Wife".
What I want to know is how these drones are more of a threat to privacy than a manned helicopter flying around doing the same thing.
Ending Congestion? Seriously?
Will driverless cars magically create more capacity on the roads so that there is enough space for all the cars that want to drive on the same road at the same time? Because that would be a neat trick.
Yes, there are new forces controlling selection. Those who reproduce are the ones who are too stupid to use birth control correctly... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/
Way more than 69% vote for the Republicrats. (or is that Democans?) They may hate the bastards but they don't want the wrong bastard in office...
But those don't generate as much traffic for the advertisements...
I for one welcome our new corporate overlords
...never complains about wanting a bigger... "dork"
Rarely has a business gone bankrupt because they underestimated the stupidity of the average consumer. There will be a large number of people who don't know enough or care about their privacy who will line up to get "free" storage.
I've already migrated and found something that is exactly what I want. Linux Mint with MATE is perfect for me. There's no reason to go back and fight with a UI that I may or may not like.
Because it's still a valid complaint. I haven't met a single person IRL that likes Unity. There are a few vocal people on here that really push it but everyone I know in person doesn't like it.
all due respect, i am running 10.10 netbook remix (first test of unity), and i currently have 3 browsers open, 3 terminals, a photo-editing app (darktable is pretty damn good these days) which i compile myself, plus skype, and occasionally dosbox'd doom2 and carmageddon.
the interface will get out of your way if you hit f11.
just sayin'. unity is certainly not perfect, but i use the sidebar more often than not. some stuff i'll launch from a terminal.
If you like Unity, great. Use it. But for a lot of us, we don't want to have a side bar. We don't want all of these tablet like "features". We don't want to have to hit F11 for the UI to get out of the way. We want the UI to be out of the way as a matter of design. So for us, Ubuntu is irrelevant. But that doesn't mean you have to do what we do.
The bugs in unity are not the biggest problem people have with Ubuntu and Unity. Linux users of all types are used to buggy code.
No, the problem is Unity itself. It's a UI that just doesn't appeal to many Linux users. Some people love it. Sure. But a lot of us can't stand all of the crap and bloat that has infected user interfaces over the years. A lot of us want a simple and clean interface that stays out of the way. I want to be able to fire up a browser or three, my IDE, my email, a file manager, and once in a while a terminal or two. I want simple buttons and menus and a UI that lets me move windows around without all sorts of flashy special effects that get in the way. I want a couple of "desktops" so that I can leave my development area as it is while I type up a document on a word processor.
I'm not running a tablet. I don't need my UI to act like one. I have a full keyboard and mouse and I'm doing real work with real programs. I want a simple interface that lets me do that. For me, Linux Mint gives me all of what was great about Ubuntu but with a UI that I can tailor to my liking. I fire up my desktop with MATE, which is still a little buggy, and I get things done.
If you like Unity, go ahead and use it. But for people who like KDE and the old GNOME 2.x UI, Ubuntu has driven itself into irrelevance.
I tried Mint 12 and went back to 11 because I did not like GNOME 3. Why are they saying "will" like it hasn't come out yet?
I'm using the MATE UI (GNOME 2 fork) on Mint 12 and it's great.
