I have been running it since Xubuntu 15.04 beta 1 was released two days ago. It is much improved over 4.10, and the new additions are great."

Since you are taking bug reports with Firefox on Linux I am seeing sigs be overlapped by the reply parent and share buttons. But hey this is better than beta was thanks for taking community input this time and not sacrificing width
yeah what the hell happened to the layout and no announcement?
only in the since that you take a photograph, and you "should be paying" in the same way any group of thugs says "I'll hit you if you don't pay me for doing this".
Well the government also thinks they have a right to charge you for simply taking pictures on national park and forest service land too.
No. It took 25 years for people to wake up and see what's happening around them.
Unfortunatelly, it is way too late now.
25 years ago it wasn't justified to take to arms to solve the problem. I'm not sure it is justified yet either.
But I don't see anyone in power trying to correct things so there is no way this will end other than with bloodshed.
Well to quote Thomas Jefferson
God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Zfs filesystems do the same, vmware is easier to use thats all. Sparc is a niche market for large corporations. (Banks, financial services, payrolls), thats why is expensive. There is no way a large corporation will use a cheap commodity hardware and vmware for mission critical operations.
That may be true for corporate dinosaurs, (big old companies that started back when having a corporate song sounded like a good idea) but most corporations that got started after the 90s have only ever lived on commodity Intel/AMD (in some cases even ARM) hardware.
I agree that free software is a good thing, and so does Oracle, as they give away their RedHat clone for free.
Oracle gives away PostgreSQL, MySQL, SQLLite, and several other databases in their clone, and will support them if that is important to you.
Some applications require scalability, availability, or other features that are beyond the realm of the free databases. In those cases, Oracle database XE is free, standard edition is under $10k, and enterprise is available where performance outweighs cost.
I wholeheartedly concur that it will be a good day when a free database gets on the TPC-C top ten list.
Oracle has nothing to do with PostgreSQL Development, they do however develop Berkeley DB both of which came from University of California Berkley research projects.
Rob Pike and I came to the conclusion that you can get too concise in a language. The example was APL.
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Can you name a single primarily psychopathic society to provide even anecdotal experimental evidence for your claim?
I cannot believe that nobody here got this. Revelation 13:16. And I don't consider myself religious. Too bad I don't have mod points right now. well done sir.
I got it but no mods points to spend today. always have mods when there is nothing worth modding but never when there is
Just thinking out loud here, the IE6 monoculture was terrible, and we all hated it...and justifiably so. However, with Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera all based on WebKit now, have we simply embraced a different monoculture? Admittedly the main difference here is that WebKit is more open than Trident, and the days of ActiveX and Java are more behind us than not...But is having an alternative render engine a better situation, or just redundant coding?
Firefox is Gecko based not WebKit.
VirtualBox has one advantage now, and that is that it is licensed at no charge. On Linux, this isn't a big deal (as KVM and Xen are decent alternatives), but a hypervisor on Windows or OS X, this can be important.
However, if one can choose a non-free solution, the competition has lapped VirtualBox several times. VMWare is extremely strong, both with Workstation on Windows or Linux , as well as Fusion on Mac. For a dedicated box with a tier 1 hypervisor, both Hyper-V (can be downloaded separately from Windows) and ESXi are quite useful (although there are limitations without the commercial management tools.)
I've tried various VM products, and the main reason that I chose to just go with VMWare is the universal-ness, and because it is at least a generation past the competition with dealing with RAM overcommits, snapshots, clustering , and other features. Plus, if a company sells an appliance, it almost always will be distributed as an
Hyper-V isn't bad, as the latest iteration auto-activates Windows VMs sitting on it (no need to worry about a KMS server accessible by all VMs... just the operating system instances running on bare metal). However, usually it is implemented with the full Windows Server OS underneath, making an attack surface, as well as a point of downtime. However, for a Windows shop, the price is right, and it does a good job. VMware is great... but you do pay a king's ransom for the features it brings with it.
: If one needs a home machine to run VMWare stuff on, one might be better off running VMWare Workstation ontop of Linux because ESXi cannot use USB hard drives as backing stores, while VMWare Workstation really doesn't care since it is a type 2 hypervisor and lets the OS handle the disk stuff. Of course, don't expect vMotion or other stuff... but if one wants a dedicated box just for virtual machines, this is a usable alternative.
: Clustering and fault tolerance is brain-dead easy, either using VMFS on a logical drive from a SAN or a NFS backing store.
It is the only free desktop oriented virtual machine to have versioning of clients so you can roll back vms. You have pay for that in its competitors.
