Nothing dubious about IQ. Many people don't like it because there are racial differences in averages and so they try to denounce it, but that's merely emotional response to something that doesn't fit their made up world view. Funny some people in the past would attempt to explain low IQ scores of certain groups because of claim that "culture was different", but then foreign immigrants from certain lands scored high without the cultural background claimed to produce unfair advantage.

Last I checked the quality of living and technological progress was entirely due to those markets and companies. Remember, it doesn't matter what some lone individual invents, it takes manufacturing and distribution so you can actually have something.

  No company has to bleed money to provide features less than 1% of users would use.

And in this case, anyone can put Debian or Ubuntu userland on a chromebook, or mount alternative filesystems with a little work. Fucking lazy whiners is the only issue here.

Yes this.

Standards were fixed? Irrelevant! They don't matter,the fuel economy of real vehicles in that time frame do. And reality shows the fuel economy of vehicles in the last 30+ years rising year after year:

The only thing "fixed" in that link is the fuel economy of *imports*

The new standards are merely the auto industry road map, made by engineers and codified by Congress.

Wrong, *standards* don't matter, the actual fuel economy of U.S. vehicles has risen year after year in the last 30+ years. That fact destroys your argument, you made up a world view between your ears that has nothing to do with reality.

Obama's (actually Congress) new standards came from the auto industry, it is their roadmap. Your hero politicians accomplished nothing.

nothing was extinguished, those who are not lazy gits can mount any Linux supported filesystem. But more than 99% of people don't want nor need to do that.

  No business has to waste time or money to support a weird niche market and a technically inferior and badly designed filesystem such as ext2 or 3. Filesystem design is not one of Linus' strong suits. Linux users should stop using the ext family, grub supports superior alternatives.
