Not any kind of debt, but only the part that was fradulently imposed on Greece (Goldman Sach bonds, military over-expending and other fraudulent contracts).

You are saying this as if these were somehow imposed upon the Greek. There were other players, sure, but it takes two to tango.

I think that 2TB is currently the largest 2.5" drive. The system apparently supports up to 6TB, and I guess some people have done it with cable extensions to 3.5" drives, or something.

There's at least one semi-external enclosure, that replaces the HDD cover with a slightly taller version that one can fit a 3.5" drive in. But according to reviews, it seems to perform worse than the stock drive (at least with a 3TB drive), so I'm not sure that's advisable - games probably assume that the HDD works at least as fast as the stock one.

O RLY? As a Finn you see them frequently in the commenting section of any popular newspaper website. If the article is about Russia, the shills will be there. Very amusing to see the exact same comment, word to word, posted at the same time by two different "people".

If that is your criteria, then perhaps Arch shouldn't count either - sure, it is not a source-based distro (the only package I compile frequently is Firefox, and that is due to it being the KDE-friendly fork, kudos to OpenSUSE for that), but still very much bleeding edge. Remarkably stable at that, but comparable to to Debian Unstable.

Oh, I'm not saying Arch Wiki is infallible (although, it is correct pretty much the whole time). I was just looking for rationalization to discard or not to discard. As a personal anecdote, this Zenbook has been running discard since day 1 (24GB SSD and 500GB HDD, discard on the first drive only of course) - the OS partition (the 24GB drive, ext4) is still spanking fast. Although, it has never been close to running out of space (/var is on the HDD).

There's very little good reason to use 'discard' on Linux

Care to elaborate on that? My bible says that discard is the first choice, fstrim when that isn't applicable for whatever reason. Bear in mind that I use Linux mostly as a desktop OS, so whatever caveats there may be in server use do not affect me.

OK, let us switch kitchen refurbishing for marriage. Then consider the following:

Since anti-discrimination laws protect PEOPLE but not EVENTS, someone who will serve ginger people, but not participate in ginger events, would probably do OK in court.

Tell me, how is that rational? Unless some religions are indeed more equal than others.
