There's also the stress of having your sancha let the cat out of the box in an angry tirade readable by your saintly grandmother and your judgmental next door neighbor.
Or gripe all day on Slashdot using your i7 Extreme with three SLI'd 480's that you harassed management to buy since you were "tired of waiting on the compiler".
I hope they comply with the GPL and make their source contributions publicly available.
Open slashdot... see add... Microsoft releasing plugin for Firefox (huh?) open article, "oh only works on Win7"... look for reason to get angry at Microsoft... can't find any on this one, seems like a nice thing, hear a bird outside, sip my soda, nice day out.
All you have to do is enable the non-free repositories. They've removed it from the standard install.
It will essentially cause this though:
Me to be able to run a system free of binary blobs and sourceless turds in my kernel.
More ease of troubleshooting problems with system devices.
A kernel with less licensing and freedom issues.
and probably no more NDA'd fed goon contributors in a heck of a long time!
Google is the worst company ever. They sold out and went evil. I give their company a poor review and personal rating.

You tenderfoots and your DASHES and CLANGS... you unwittingly believe that your new tools are so sexy and shiny, giggling and chuckling with your hippo dancing jokes. These tools are an abomination and a sacrilege. REPENT! The filthy whores of Babylon such is Apple may give you honey, they may give you mead now - but in the end you will be left in sorrow, pennyless. She will take your GNU purity and defile it and you will rend your clothes and mourn when you realize the extent of your filth.
"We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is at the end of its life cycle."
could also be:
"We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is deprecated"
"We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is obsolete"
"We must bear in mind that Linux is not a Russian OS and, moreover, is old fashioned"
Does anyone have the exact translation for what the guy really meant or just a Google translation.
Also, of course it's off-the-cuff. A Microsoft guy saying nothing more than "Linux is [i]x[/i]" with nothing more to back up the statement or shed more light on it.
This is news?
You call a 386 with a 1200 baud modem "well obsolete" in 1992? Most of us didn't start getting our 486's until 1992 or 1993. I was reading about 80502 Pentiums in late '93/early '94 oooohing and aaaahing at the growth of that monstrosity of an architecture...if you had a high end 486 there was no reason to upgrade to the 80501 anyway. The 386SX's and DX's were still everywhere. I didn't upgrade my 2400 to a 14.4k until '93. Connecting to BBS's and seeing others on with 1200 or 2400 modems was the norm. In fact, I'd say that a 386 with either a 1200 or a 2400 modem was the most common type of hardware amongst Intel users back in the very early 90's.

You'd be surprised. I got into an argument with a bum under a bridge once about using sbcl instead of clisp. It seemed that decent multi-threading support wasn't important to him at the moment. Are you sure the incoherent ranting isn't just instruction mnemonics?

Stallman's changes are already happening and as far as I know he has no access to a genie. If he had a genie he'd share it.
