Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I bet the headline would get even more pageviews if they claimed this was an iPad flaw instead of iPhone.
because it's my preference to install some software packages that way because it's faster/easier than going into Symantec since I know the exact program name
I hope the authors of Synaptic never see this post as they would probably hang themselves after being mistaken for that monster...
Also, tien isn't a valid Chinese word. So my point is that, unlike what we might do in the West, Chinese people aren't going to misspell it to get the results they want.
Microsofts version of open source is that i develop and they take the code, the credit and the ownership.
Yes, because Microsoft's mode of operation is to steal GPL code and try to claim it's theirs until they get caught, at which point they fess up and pretend it was a mistake. Right... I mean, just look at all the other times they stole GPL code!
If in fact that tool used GPL code, it was just some lazy or dishonest developer who used a bunch of code from the Internet and pretended it was his. No proprietary software company would let that slide. Yes, that includes the company we all love to hate.
And public keys aren't always that secure either. There are probably still plenty of servers with weak keys from the Debian debacle. What do you do with those users if password authentication is disallowed? Just lock them out and make them call you for a key reset?
Yet, a Chinese dropout can get a manufacturing job, make enough money in ten years to retire in the lifestyle they are accustomed to and call it a life.
Yes, China the land of opportunity. That's why so many Americans are flocking to China to work in shoe factories, and why there are no longer any Chinese immigrants looking for a better life in America.
