This slashdor random Be ta is annoying more than Win 8
Today, Linux and Libreoffice is a better alternative than Windows and MS Office...
Not that the usability of the linux desktop linux went up, no, it ramained at a good level, it's more the useability of MS products who s(t)inks dramatically.
>> A few dozen people might wind up with cancer someday because Japan uses nuclear power.
Nope. The first years it was close to 600 in the direct vincinity:
The number is not considering the widespread ingestion of contaminated agricultural produce, and is exponential over the years (or at least over the firt 300 years)

That is BS.
Robots did not work in '86. Today's electronics and plastics are much more vulnerable to rad than in '86.
it will inevitably end like that : http://www.archifiction.org/34...
All those years and you didn't try LO.
MS. Office is really not any more at the level of Libreoffice...
Beta is crap. We want Slashdot back.
Written on a classic slashdot.
