Why would you need to reboot?
Why would you need to reboot?
Could you elaborate on the (legal) issues you have with submitting patches to GPL projects? How could one end up in trouble doing so?
I can only conclude that you and I must be using totally different browsers despite both being called Firefox, because the one I'm using isn't in a "sorry state". Then again, I'm a weirdo who doesn't think a fullscreen start menu is a crime against humanity either
It makes sense that a library that exists (duh, but was anything else available in 1998?), is free of charge, and does its job will become widely used. Has a technically superior future alternative ever taken over something that was available when needed? Makes me think of IPv6, but I'm not sure the comparison works.
It only takes a few seconds to find out it's an instant messenger, but I agree it wouldn't have been a bad idea to add those two descriptive words at the beginning of the summary. WhatsApp's popularity AFAIK is largely thanks to the fact it works on cheap "feature phones" as well as beefier devices. I like to keep things simple so I run WhatsApp on Android-x86 which in turn runs in Virtualbox on my desktop computer.
Agoraphobia and anxiety disorders in general can absolutely be disabling and I wouldn't wish them on anyone. Also, where in the world is any disability benefit high enough for someone to buy even one car and enough gas to drive around leisurely? (Unless I misunderstood and your sister only bought the 4-wheelers and the RV after earning the money for them in a truly American way: winning lawsuits
How and why did you suddenly turn this into Geeks vs "Normals"? The "geek" is included in people and has just as much (or little) say as anyone else. Besides that, I doubt it's only geeks who would enjoy less traffic noise.
Technically correct, but do you not consider some laws unworthy of respect? Outside the area of drug and gun laws for example (AFAIK) anal and oral sex were criminal in many parts of the US as recently as twelve years ago.
I don't like it much either. On the other hand, if it meant that support was available as long as there are enough subscribers I think many people would come to like it; especially if they grandfathered (not sure I'm using the term correctly here) XP and Server 2003 into the plan...
What was this "one case" and how did you figure out it really happened? I'm not saying Snopes can't be wrong, but you don't make it easy to check whether you're correct here.
It's going to become more and more impossible (or illegal) to own a dumb phone anymore
What do you mean? How will owning a dumbphone tomorrow be any harder or more impossible/illegal than it was yesterday?
nor long time users with low UIDs sell their account when they get bored.
Wait, are there actually buyers for old accounts? What's today's rate for a late five-digit account? Few bucks won't be worth the trouble to arrange the sale.
Right. I wouldn't classify for example greatly increased hardware support as bloat. Technically it probably is, but then in this case the word doesn't have the usual negative connotations.
