Having spent many hours in trainers and simulators of varying levels of fidelity courtesy of Uncle Sam's Canoe Club - trust me, a low fidelity simulator is much better than none at all. You can still learn quite a bit.
When you graduate kindergarten, and learn to read, go back and read the exchange and note that spin-offs are the topic of discussion - not follow on missions.
Until then, toddle off to bed with the other infants, the adults are have a conversation here.
Russia is definitely, without a doubt or a question, the villain here.
Your statement assumes there is only one villain.
Russia is a villain. The U.S. is a villain. The current fascist-riddled Ukraine government is a villain. The prior authoritarian Ukraine government is a villain. And in the end, the ethnic Russians of Eastern Ukraine are fucked.
Yeah, in the same way GIMP stands for Gnu Image Manipulation Program
The problem affecting the kernel appears to only be enabled with a specific set of optimizations, and only to matter for a specific class of programs.
Also, apparently the problem has actually been present for a number of iterations of the compiler, but a shift within the Linux kernel code has caused the compiler error to manifest. But the shift within the Linux kernel code was still valid C (C++?) code, so it was a compiler problem, even though it didn't affect most programs.
I, personally, dislike swearing even when "sanitized".
OTOH, I do realize that this is my personal taste. I feel it makes the communication less clear.
OTTH, written communication lacks the richness of communication by speech. This means that there is no inherent channel corresponding to tone of voice. When someone uses swearing as a substitute for certain tones of speech, it's really hard to say there is a better option. The alternative work-arounds tend to be verbose. Also, swearing via the use of the term "shit" appears to be something we inherited from our common ancestor with chimpanzees, because if they are taught to sign they will automatically use the term "shit" to describe persons and situations that they dislike.
Since your post contains actual verifiable information, our tireless moderator zombies have found it necessary to de-score it.
I wouldn't call it bullying, There's no threat here at all, just snark.
Linus is quite the glass-house dweller, though. Hugh Daniel's comments over the years about the mistakes and misfeatures in Linux were enlightening and entertaining.
Hi! Welcome to the real world. You'll find the dumpster for your "participation" trophies to the left; and here, you get paid for winning, not "trying" or "good sportspersonship".
Linus doesn't suffer fools gladly. And I applaud him for that.
The EU would like to buy American gas rather than Russian, but getting enough LNG infrastructure to replace piped gas is incredibly expensive and not something that can be built quickly.
He didn't get the job done in this case, though. He sent an abusive email about a bug that had already been patched, with a tirade about register spills that aren't even related to the bug.
Just adding features should not slow an OS down, as features are mostly only loaded when needed and memory management should be able to handle background stuff.
It depends on the features. Some features do in fact require more memory or processing power. You seem to be a fan of Windows 8, and yes, it performs pretty well. Still, let's look at some system requirements.
Windows XP system requirements:
* Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
* At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
* At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk.
* CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Windows 8 system requirements:
* Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2 (more info)
* RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
* Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
* Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver.
Those specs are significantly higher. I don't fault MS for that, it's been 10 years. They moved to 64-bit code, which enables greater memory use and better performance for big data sets, but also requires a higher minimum RAM. Part of the reason for this is that they're maintaining backwards compatibility, which is a feature.
