QT with LGPL could be used freely by google... maybe the problem is control... they could not control GTK and may have fear that QT could neither be controlled by then... Or is just another NIH attack!
It's not a Literal V, but it is still a V formation!
If you are on steam, if a game you already have is ported to linux, you will get access to the new port for free. Then you play it and the publishers can see how many people use linux... so it's almost as you really buy the linux version.
Of course, it's always preferred to buy the linux version when it is released, so the publisher can see a nice spike on sales when the linux version is released
I use kiskis, a program just like keepas, but older, in java and uses AES to encrypt the file.... choose a good password as master password and you are good to go!
The java allow me to run in almost any system, have the program and the encrypted db in a pendrive (where i have some basic passwords) and i also have my main password db at home. For more important passwords, i ssh to home, do a quick gpg -d password.db.gpg | less and search for the password.
This way i can access the passwords from whatever i am, i have the the passwords in a standard secure encryption and in a secure location (home and office) on different passwords db for different objectives
The problem is choice.
Users don't mind changing, but they want to revert or change thing that don't like. Ubuntu and gnome3 are 3 of the main examples where the choice is removed from you, because they "know better" and "it's too hard for normal users". This of course created rage among the "advanced" (or simply older) users, even more when most of the time the only solution is a radical change of distro/desktop environment.
What is good for one guy might not be for the next one, without a proper fallback, the "next guy" is left out in the cold
No, he can still play... just don't cheat!!
This way his DNS history will be totally safe
that is where you are wrong!
Most of us are scientists, engineers, developers, administrators... all technical people, who usually don't care about design, but care about usability and speed (ie: we are all lazy, want as much information as possible, as fast as possible, with the little trouble as possible)
If you are trying to fish "normal" people, by cutting out classic, slashdot will stop being a technical site
The classic design in 2014? Not too bad. The classic design in 2018? Probably not going to cut it.
slashdot have the same design since 1997 and i don't people complain...
yes, the site changes, it is more dynamic, comments can be collapse, submit comments without reloading, etc but the classic design worked fine for 17 years
show off !
The idea of the beta is to check if the design idea is on the right track, instead of investing months of work on features, just to find that no one likes it and trow it all away... as you can see, the test worked, as most people didn't like the change and several things need to be corrected before adding more features.
psst!! yes, you can resurrect classic, just don't tell anyone!!
Again, nvidia don't have the console market today, AMD have it, so if game developers will use MANTLE in the consoles, the PC market should follow.
If the performance is as claimed, game developers will for sure try to use it, specially if its supported in all systems the same (all consoles, windows, mac, linux)
Don't forget that all new consoles today are using AMD cards, so the game developers are using mantle for those, they would also can do that to PC with little change
