Yep. My response was "FUCK NO!!", and yes they kept pestering me for months. I never gave them a damn thing.
Lucky you, they just terminated my G+ account after a couple weeks of pestering (and at the time you could not use a lot of services without G+), but now G+ is dead, and Vic Gundotra has been fired while I'm still alive and I still have my job.
[she] needs access to Quicken/QuickBooks and others tools (MS Excel) that are pretty much industry standard for her. It would be great to have those all ported to Linux,
Actually, MS Excel has already been ported to Linux, although and to be completely fair, it is a rather specialized distribution of Linux called "Android"
It's a simple, clean font.
Yes, more open source copycatting proprietary software as "hack" looks like a direct ripoff of Monaco or Menlo fonts found in OS X. How did they get past the copyright lawyers? Although I read somewhere on slashdot that fonts are not copyrightable in the US.
Menlo is based upon the Open Source font Bitstream Vera and the public domain font Deja Vu (info embedded inside the font itself).
Provide an environment similar to what the user would expect had the user logged in directly.
The problem with the man page os "su" is that "similar" and "expect" mean nothing.
I do plan to give it another go some day when I have a lot more time to spend learning it
I'm sorry to break this to you, but it is very unlikely that sometime in the future you'll have more free time than now, at least not before retirement.
It's almost as bloated with junk as the desktop version. I've been telling our developers to use debian over ubuntu. A base minimal container with Debian is under a 100 megs. With Ubuntu it's close to 700 megs. There's just too much stuff included by default. That means a whole bunch of things that could be potential security problems. Sure, you have to set up more in the Dockerfile since so little is included, but I consider that a feature, not a bug.
Unless you are trying to install it on a Raspberry Pi or other toyware, 600MB are not a significant amount of disk space.
USB sticks mount fine for me.
Therefore the problem is you.
