You're an idiot.
That's what I mean when I say "The hiding of scrollbars". It's not an issue for now because you can turn that off. It's just not a good direction IMHO.
DuckDuckGo gave its top result to a fruitcake link saying "Genesis can explain everything...."
Phil Collins or Sega?
No, Peter Gabriel.
The driver support is usually *better* on Linux because you aren't reliant on some stupid hardware vendor who doesn't feel like updating their driver for a new OS release. This happens on Windows all the time.
They don't have to update the driver. Even Vista drivers work fine in Windows 10.
Driver quality is usually better too; manufacturers are notorious for making shoddy and bloated driver packages with all kinds of extra crapware included.
Most stuff coming from Windows Update does not have crapware. These days even OEMs often provide junk-free installation packages. What comes to the actual driver quality, it usually is better under Windows, as all features are implemented and optimized, and the power management works properly.
Beg to differ all you like, having lived in one of those countries most of my life and another of them for a number of years, I'm not impressed.
Certainly it affects all those things. The drivers get a decent wage, the schedules and routes mean they run all day, and often all night, when purely commercial operations would not operate outside busy hours and routes, and unlike the unlicensed systems you mention, they tend to have stops with electronic countdowns to when the busses are due.
In Britain they partially "deregulated" the busses in the 1980s, and the services got worse and more expensive.
As I said, your opinion is prejudice, not reality.
Convenient, yes. Cheaper, depends. But don't dismiss the importance of having the price quoted before the journey - that's a BIG attraction.
I'm afraid you've committed a classic systems analysis mistake - letting your preconceived idea of a solution affect your requirements (or use cases).
Again, it's got fuck all to do with the cost of licenses. Uber uses drivers with badges where the law already allows for their technology to be used.
That's your prejudice, not reality. Neither government, subsidy, not monopoly affects the speed of a bus. Congestion does. And dedicated lanes speed them up again.
Oh, I certainly don't want to click on them. They're just useful for context. The very thin ones are fine.
Duh! I'm not talking about a phone call. I'm talking about an app on the passenger side, and an app on the drivers side that calculates a fare. The legal barrier is the means of calculating the fare. (phone app vs sealed, approved, serviced meter of a specific type.)

It's not about the USA but a country where proper public transport is much needed, and these mini-bus taxis are filling in for the lack of it.

Invest in bubbles, and you ask for the consequences. I certainly hope that the utility of a city's transport system isn't dictated by such considerations.
