I thought linux was secure because there were thousands of monkeys looking at the code. How did they let this happen - or was I lied to?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
vim is the better editor - there's absolutely no reason to choose emacs over vim
Nope, it's not the mantra of FOSS community. FOSS is about software licenses not "Let me decide!".
Mod parent +1 funny.
> ubuntu mono and adobe source mono pro are almost identical
I am guessing you have not really spent too much time carefully choosing the best font for you.
The point is that advertisers WILL (and want to) take this seriously on the server level, as long as the user KNOWINGLY sets the DNT option on. But, if it is abused by certain software vendors, the whole exercise is going to be rendered pointless.
That's not the point though. I have a samsung galaxy s2, and I am willing to bet a dollar that I will never get upgraded jellybean, unless I flash the rom.
I am sorry, but using a bitcoins as a single factor to rule out a site as legitimate is a bug in the design of the filtering machine. There needs to be different levels of severity based on a set of features. It is not 100% effective, but if MS labels it as being "not a bug but a feature", it just means they are being lazy (which is okay, maybe they don't have time to make it better).
Automation is supposed to be smart enough to detect edge cases. If not it's just buggy software. Saying that something is automated, is not an excuse for it to make wrong decisions.
That's awesome, Linus! Congrats, you really deserve it for revolutionizing software development twice in the last two decades.
My prediction : 201x will be referred to as the decade when the software patent and copyright bubble burst.
I'm a recent MBA grad
Work for a few more years in hardcore tech, and come back and read what you just wrote. Your approach could work for ultra-conservative companies. You should look at 20% projects more as something that keeps the really smart and enthusiastic engineering folks from leaving your company.
The biggest end result of side projects are motivated people, not new technology.
There is much more to ubuntu than the default desktop environment, right from their hardware support to their extensive list of software and ppas. Even then, it's always good to have a modern but simple DE for people just getting into Linux, and Unity is one of the best DEs for that. (I personally use gnome shell)
