Clearly it should be extensible in Lisp
So now there's no Gnome or KDE on anything but Linux.
That is Lennart's plan. Here's what he says::
think we need to ask ourselves the question if we do ourselves any good
if we continue to support all kinds of kernels that simply cannot keep
up with Linux anymore."
I guess we'll see how writing non-portable *nix code as a strategy works out in the long run. I'm not a fan of the idea. It certainly makes for some big trade-offs. I like having the same desktop available on multiple platforms (and different Linux distros don't count for that).
More specifically, systemd is Linux-only. The devs have explicitly stated that they are making good use of Linux-specific features. Fine, but if third party software becomes dependent on it then that implies they won't work on *BSD at all. Right? So now there's no Gnome or KDE on anything but Linux.
Seems reminiscent of "embrace and extend" in spirit.
It has its charms.
Even if some Marine Lieutenant Colonel writes a memo advocating actions to take during nuclear war or mass insurrection, that doesn't either make it national policy or legal. It is nonsense.
Reached by telephone Sunday at his home in northern Virginia, Brinkerhoff denounced as 'ridiculous' the report involving him and the Marine now at the center of the Iran-Contra scandal.
Saying he left government in 1982, Brinkerhoff added, 'There never was a plan to install martial law or martial rule. The whole purpose of emergency preparedness is and was to maintain civil rule.
'A lot of memos and lot of plans were written. We have a responsibility to plan for mobilization in case of emergency or war. As far as some evil plot
The missing idea is known as MILITARY SUPPORT TO CIVIL AUTHORITIES: THE ROLE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE IN SUPPORT OF HOMELAND DEFENSE
That's not martial law.
And yes owners, there is oil needed for your volt.
Um, no. Electric cars use permanently lubricated bearings. There's no mechanism by which the dealer can add oil to anything. Eventually, those bearings fail, and you have to replace the motor, but not for a very long time.
Electric cars do need tire rotation, brake pad replacement, and replacement of brake lights and other exterior lights (if they aren't LEDs). Beyond that, they should be largely maintenance-free.
War is terrorism.
Words have meaning and you aren't getting either war or terrorism right. It appears the "ever helpful" Juan Cole has mislead you.
IIRC, they made a number of firmware changes to improve things.
The PC is a modular product made to be upgraded. If they don't want you tampering with stuff inside of it, they need to put a tamper seal on each thing they don't want you touching.
Well, they certainly can do so, but AFAIK, there's no legal reason they have to do so. However, if they deny the warranty, the burden of proof is on them to show that the changes you made caused the failure, at least in theory. In practice, if you aren't willing to sue them, they can deny the warranty all they want to, and they probably won't ever get in trouble for it.
WW1 and WW2 were war, not terrorism.
Probably not. It is pretty common for people to become radicalized during or after their education. If it was all planned you would expect to see clustering around majors that directly related to creation of bombs or weapons, but I doubt that is the case. Mohammed Atta, the ringleader of the 9/11 attacks, studied architecture and urban planning. He was strongly influenced by the Muslim Brotherhood during his education.
There is obviously a correlation between being dateless and becoming a terrorist.
It probably isn't especially high. It isn't hard to find examples of suicide bombers that were married.
