Typo in title.
The article should have been named "iPhone Reportedly Coming To China Mobile This Fall".
I also use a NAS, but that's not a solution for people who want portability and use the drive in different computers. Recently I got a small 500gb freecom and it came with fat32, but 4GB file size limit is ridiculous. Ext3/4, XFS.... would be nice, but Windows and Mac do not support it out of the box. NTFS, although not perfect, allows me to use it in friend's computers that do not have a special driver, and also it works fine in my linux laptop.
Almost anything that Windows can boot on, Linux should as well. If not, then NetBSD should....

I would be a lab rat for such experiment. I think improving the human body is a nice idea to me. I'd love to have a memory card slot in my skull to be able to remember pretty much everything else that my brain can't. Or maybe an ALU to perform very fast calculations....
I like the fact that I can have GIMP on a live CD, very convenient. Sometimes I don't have internet access, so downloading from the package manager is not feasible. I always thought of Ubuntu as 'bloated' compared to other distros, and that never stopped me from using it in some situations. It's just a different market. I don't think GIMP is any harder than MS paint, and the help is much better anyway. If people are lazy to read documentation, then what can you do? There are no universal symbols for everything in computing, at some point if they want to learn something they will have to read (in their own language if possible). But anyway, there will always be some distro with more utilities anyway that I can use as a live CD.
