Frankly I don't know why FOSS users would bitch about this since they are basically copying your "odd/even" or "LTS/regular" release concepts.
I'm sorry, what? My systems use rolling-release. Putting two equals signs between FOSS and Ubuntu is as silly as putting two equals signs between PC and Windows.
It's not Windows hatred per se, although that certainly is a healthy attitude. It's just that everytime a Microsoft-related article pops up, a brand new user starts blindly praising whatever Microsoft's been doing this time around. It's getting old, Microsoft.
Town planning. No, really.
(I suppose not yet ancient for a decade or so, but still.)
We don't actually distribute them willy nilly either, but we are allowed to buy them if we are good boys and girls.
And how do you define "good boys and girls"? Do you have to attend a mandatory course on gun safety and stress management? Do you have to pass a test to prove yourself capable of using a gun under considerable stress without incident? No, you only have to be an adult, without a record, and patient enough to wait, what, two weeks or something? This still counts as willy-nilly.
If one had to prove oneself not to be a total boob around guns before being allowed to have one, I would soften a bit on the matter. But the current regulations are ridiculous.
It will make governments shit themselves with fear that anyone can create a hand-gun, and then there will be stupid laws, and corporations will see dollar signs and suggest some kind of DRM mechanism in place on "legal" replicators and then we're in the same mess as we are now, only with physical objects. I don't want to have to jailbreak my replicator in the future, or have to reverse-engineer some future closed-spec DRMd object format.
And you're right, I don't know anything about guns. That's kinda the point. I'm living in a country where guns aren't distributed willy-nilly, hence my total ignorance about such weaponry. And I'm quite proud of the fact.
Obviously this is not a cause for Microsoft to be "scared," because its fearless leader doesn't have hair
How do you know it's the hair on his head they mean?
If hateful and aggressive comments are forbidden by law, how is Youtube able to function?
This is exactly why I hope that wanker's gun backfires in his face or groin. The 3D printer is a wonderful invention. Don't ruin it by the usual gun-horny Yankee idiot routine!
The Carrousel awaits you...
Is that like the buffet at Old Country Buffet? Home of really really fat people and old coots like me? I'm there!
No, it's nothing as sinister as that. Have a read.
This is why no one with security, integrity, and privacy in mind would use anything other than peer reviewed open source software. Nor let their employees do so, for that matter.
