That's not really software though, is it? Think about the "ware" part, in means a vendable item.
That's the part before what the OP quoted. And all software is complex, or at least complex enough to have bugs.
Let's try a sanity reword and measure how much they added unnecessary(caveat: I'm prone to being overly verbose as well, and I won't do a great job)
We make open source middleware
Did I get it right?
Really, you think professional 3d modelers don't know what a vertex is? Really?
I mean, I can get that they might not understand how vertices are processed by a rasterizer, but that's not what they are.
Please, facebook doesn't want more programmer registered users. They want you to do more free work for them.
But how do I imagine them? It's not from nowhere. It's from a recurring familiarity with what goes wrong in software development. I didn't just get a programming language down and suddenly grasp the idea of field interdependency, did I? I mean, admittedly, it was before I got a job in the field, but the first time you try to save something where X interferes with Y and it crashes your program teaches you the concept.
A lot of work is so old by now that it should be in the public domain. Copyright was never meant to be a new form of property or a means to extract tolls from end users until the end of time.
The point of both copyright and patents is to encourage the creation of ideas/inventions that EVERYONE can use.
"copying the work" is the intended ultimate result.
No. He just doesn't take Lemming trolls at face value.
Most people whining about GIMP and putting Photoshop on a pedestal are amateurs and consumers that would never actually pay for a copy of Photoshop ever.
Photoshop is a lot of cost for questionable marginal benefit.
I'm just saying a few years ago, we had an awful lot of that variety of idiot.
Well, there's always the fact that people go to open it and are like "oh yeah, windows 8 and metro" and vomit uncontrollably for a few minutes.
> "fraudulent" is quite an accusation. If you try to outlaw market crashes/corrections, you will kill the market, and then what of your retirement savings?
If you allow market crashes caused by rampant fraud, you won't have to worry about retirement savings. You probably won't live that long.
This stuff is nothing new. People just like to ignore history.
This is the kind of thing people on the slashdot of yesteryear thought were impossible. Remember when people would post that Apple computers and/or Linux wasn't vulnerable like Windows?
Good times. I mean, I'm not trying to claim Windows has improved in security that it's no longer the easiest target or anything. Just that things have changed since that bygone era.
Oh yeah, that's fair enough, and why I abandoned transparent terminals after about an hour.
My cute not quite hello kitty background picture is clear enough for me to see the icons.
Is samsung that bad?
Last Samsung phone I has was an unlocked Galaxy Ace. It came with a bunch of useful software, and I was surprised how much I had to install when I got a Nexus phone. The stock android seems to be missing among others, some very old fashined features which have been standard since the 80s, or at least the early 90s.
