Mod me -1 pedantic, but it only prevents the quartering of soldiers in private homes "without the consent of the Owner".

"No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."

They updated the summary. My cached (igoogle) summary doesn't include the word Ubuntu: "An anonymous reader writes to mention that Mark Shuttleworth has announced the next release in their horrible alliterative family, 'Karmic Koala'."

Adding Ubuntu "their horrible alliterative Ubuntu family" made it more clear.

I went through the whole TN-1 / H1-B / Advance Parole process to get my permanent residency and I'm always amazed at the backlash on slashdot against foreign workers.

The way I see it, competition is global and every country should want the best "players" on their team. If I'm not working for an American company, paying American taxes, buying American products and eating in American restaurants, do you think I wouldn't be in software engineering? I'd just be working for a foreign company, paying foreign taxes, etc etc. I'd either be taking a job from an American as an offshore worker, or contributing to a competitor of an American company, which in no way makes America healthier.

Ditch the petty protectionism argument. Trust me, you're better off with me working here in America.

He who is content with his lot probably has a lot.

Working...
