OS analogy, in this case, boils down simply to PEBKAC. The OS did its job, but he was trying to achieve gigabit speeds on 802.11b wifi. Many fellow network admins have died doing exactly that.
It's the kind of attitude you'd expect from Jeremy Clakson, an idiot who regularly speeds and sees a fellow idiot crashing at unsafe speeds for public roads as a victim of something other than himself.
Sorry about that. We'll be appending Wikipedia to every article in the future. It's not like you could search it or Google on a separate browser tab, anyway, right?
I'm with you. I strongly prefer printed books due to lots of small reasons, like being virtually mug-free, not running out of batteries, providing conversation material (even when sitting on a bookshelf) etc. However, space has been a problem. My shelves are packed and nowadays I think none of us apartment dwellers has enough space for a proper library. So now I'm considering biting the bullet and getting Pynchon's latest novel on ebook form.
They're about in line with the Moto G, itself a pretty capable phone. Frankly, it's the sweet spot for most people, especially when you factor in non-subsidized prices and power consumption. My Nexus 4 sure is powerful, but the thing can chew through 25% of its battery in less than 10 minutes when doing intense stuff like updating the OS or changing runtime libraries.
The landfill itself seems to be the bigger problem. Everything takes ages to decompose, not only plastic:
Maybe we'll eventually have sewer-like vacuum tubes for solid trash, but until then I don't see plastic bags disappearing. They're needed for storage and transportation.
Well, I tend to choose plastic bags at the supermarket because later I use them for garbage disposal. AFAIK, that's the norm (and very harmful to the environment, but garbage bags are plastic everywhere, aren't they?).
This. I usually check Tom's Hardware, too, but keep in mind they mostly care about gaming. Also, Phoronix is the only site AFAIK that does Linux HW reviews.
Don't start being passive-aggressive with me. There's plenty of others who haven't lost their teeth in the fight against microorganisms. How come fire still works, huh? Fire doesn't make any of your lousy excuses about being overused, and it's been working with us for much longer than you. Mostly on corpses, since it lacks your sense of moderation, but hey, it works really well. In fact, I'd say fire is somewhat like a flame, still burning bright after all these years, while your skills seem to be decomposing, for some reason.

There. Identify me now, bastards.
Wasn't alcohol about as dangerous during the prohibition? I distinctively remember some mobsters and some shooting.
Well, it's your fault for not being effective anymore, fuzzyfuzzyfungus.
I don't know how it is in the US, but here banks seem to deeply dislike OSs not retardedly easy to compromise. I have accounts in two banks. One of them started working in Linux only about four years ago, the other only did so last year. They both regularly splurt errors because of openJDK incompatibility - they want Sun's Java. And one of them hilariously has its https certification broken for almost a year now. Airlines are even funnier. At least one of them still only works on IE.
"The price of a stolen identity has dropped [...] to $25 for a U.S identity [...]"
Seems pretty clear.
Thank you for reminding me of this.
