Someone mod this guy up.

If a browser crashes because of a site, it's the browser's developers fault.
Actually it does produce the button2 events natively. I had to use no additional software to use it. It's my everyday mouse.
Bluetooth, comfortable mouse with a wheel, but a split 3rd button. Instead of a 3rd button integrated with the will, it's a smaller button closer to the palm.
he's missing the --no-preserve-root option. that's it.
You all have your pound of flesh, just leave the man alone!
Was all over the news and the national data protection institution circulated a PDF explaining it.
trust me, it is. a big part of the new law is 50 shades of stupid.
because regardless of the employment contract, the new law states it that way. in any contract, either employment or others, any clause that goes against the law is automatically void and sometimes, due to the nature of those clauses, the entire contract is void.
So, the resources your company paid for to be tools for your work should be used for your leisure time?
And since when does a company expect you to check your e-mail before bedtime? If it is a company e-mail, it's to be checked during work hours.
They don't and that became a problem. The new law actively permits users to be on facebook in company time using company resources. And for that part I'd love to smack the face of whoever thought that up.
And how legal is this over there?
This January, here in Portugal, things like that just became totally illegal, punishable with prison sentence.
to me this all sounds like a lame excuse for the lack of quality of their own software. I mean it's true that there are bugs in the kernel and everywhere on X and alike, but all other apps play nice. only chrome is playing the "poor little guy" part. all other software rants and complains when they find a bug, but they still manage to work it out and to help everything get better. Linux is not the only platform having frustrating bugs that can cripple any piece of software. but it's the easy prey for anyone preparing to become a competitor.
this is the typical tactic of making people "dependent" on their software, then complaining that some of the platforms it runs on doesn't have as much quality to be excused for a poor performance so they can make it work worse and then they have another excuse to impose a bit more of their own platform like the one running on chromebooks or something else about to be launched.
Not accusing you of hating Gnome 3, your comment just reminded me of that.
