Where do you think the caffeine in energy drinks comes from?
I would have expected that BSD would be deliriously happy that the evil gaze of Poettering hadn't alighted upon their operating system. Why would you voluntarily infest your system with his daemon spawn?
Maybe if the GCC team had actually *believed* in their license, and not also used intense obfuscation to stop parts of their toolchain being abstracted out, we wouldn't be in this mess. As it is, though, LLVM+clang scratch many itches that GCC can't even reach.

You expected a different graphics solution from Imagination Technologies?
So a bit of background first: the PC1512 included a planar extension to CGA, providing 640x200x16 colours. BASIC 2 provided dithered drawing of complex shapes.
LAKESIDE.BAS was a very early procedural graphics generator, using a random seed to draw a, by modern standards, primitive 2D scene. In the distance there was a sky with clouds, snow peaked mountains reflecting in a lake, with little islands and sail boats. In the foreground, there were hills, white buildings with red roofs, white picket fencing separating fields, and all sorts of flowers, bushes and trees. Given how slow the machine was, it'd take a minute or so to draw each picture, leave it up for a little while, and then draw another one.
Whilst this could undoubtedly be rendered in 3D in the blink of an eye, and all sorts of shader magic could make it look like an actual painting, I think it would lose some of the charm.
Personally, I'd kill to get a picture frame running LAKESIDE.BAS. Sadly, I've lost my copy of this late 80s "BASIC 2" curio, and since it was pre-Internet, it seems lost in time.
20% worried they'll win the lottery for a free sex change?
Or, another way of looking at it: they met their future colleagues, and bailed while the gettin' was good.
I see someone doesn't know about the trick modes. http://www.studiostyle.sk/dmag...
One imagines that sort of thing comes with using non-prehistoric reactor designs.
It's OK, AC will sort the chaos out.
There's a story that the USAF sent a stealth bomber to Farnborough airshow as part of the display. Apparently, the pilots were very surprised when Air Traffic Control got in touch to tell them they were doing the display over Farnham, 6 miles down the road.
So what you're saying is that the main source of naysaying against feminism is the patriarchy?
It seemed like a step too far, but then they read the slashdot comments, and suddenly spermbanks seemed the more rational option.
