I would be surprised if they did. I have subscribed to netflix for years and what I want is convenience and the ability to find new things. It wouldn't be possible for me to download everything I want in a month, because I don't know today what I will want next month. And even if I did, new stuff will be added.
Most importantly, even if I did know what I wanted and didn't worry about new content, it would be inconvenient for me to do that.
"Of course, how they expect to have any university-affiliated distinguished scientists is a different question."
This could be a point if the problem applied to scientific fields, but it at least seems to be much less of an issue there. Getting a tenure track position in math or a science is not easy by any stretch, but it is much more realistic than what this person is describing for Literature.
Now, asking how they expect to have any distinguished Literature Professors associated with the University might be a valid question, but its not clear many Universities are overly worried about that.
The USPS may be fading, but there is still a need for the immediate future and ending saturday delivery is a very logical way to make up some of its revenue gap.
First, I would pick a distro, that makes it a lot easier to sell. I unhesitatingly recommend Ubuntu for someone that wants Linux on the desktop.
But as for what needs to be done, while I use Ubuntu I also still use Windows. Windows really is a pretty good OS, IMHO. But more than that, there are several important programs that have no Linux counterparts. There are few AAA games on Linux. Also, as much as I love LibreOffice, MS Office is sometimes an absolute requirement.
COPPA of course. COPPA made it almost impossible for a non-specialized provider like Google to provide services to children under 13 in a legal fashion in a way that is cost effective and profitable. In a situation like that, of course Google's way to comply is to ban accounts for users under 13.
Now, the question is, is it a good thing for COPPA to essentially force non-specialized interactive services to not deal with children?
I am strongly of the opinion that it should be the parents responsibility to guide, gaurd, and teach their children and that COPPA should not exist. But I also understand the counterargument that it is hard for parents to do that without some restrainints on corporations as well.
