Comment: Inertia? (Score 1) 414 414

The last two major releases (7 and 8) have been awful. I think the only reason why Java still gets so much attention is because there's a lot of time and money already invested on Java applications. As a Java developer and FOSS advocate myself, I have to confess that I'm closely following the results of Microsoft flirting with the open source community. I never thought I would say such thing, though.

Comment: Forcing application interface binding? (Score 1) 384 384

Can you run multiple instances of the application? In that case, this (or a similar application) could be helpful. The idea is to make every instance to use a particular interface. I also thought that maybe, if the application can be run using wine, you could lunch multiple instances on a Linux box, each one using a different network configuration, but seems that it's not possible.

Comment: Re:Even I bought a PS1 and PS4 (Score 2) 101 101

Well, you should stop hating, it's no good for your heart. I don't buy Sony hardware anymore (except for gaming stuff ) because the quality of their products has decreased dramatically these last years. But I have to admit that the PS (portable and "desktop") is a neat piece of hardware, despite of their stupid content delivery policies and stuff like making proprietary memory cards for the PS Vita. PS is a classical example of good engineering and broken management.
