I'm afraid posting a complaint on Slashdot will do nothing about this issue.
Of course a possible side effect (and a good one from an e-waste point of view) is that people would hold onto their old phones longer. I see this as a good thing.
Actually, I imagine piracy is a major reason why Adobe would do this. Photoshop is probably the most pirated app of all time. Gimp will probably have a windfall of new users soon.
CSS Zen Garden taught me just how awesome CSS can be. If I could just learn it.
This is what happens when hipster UI developers from the mobile and web world come into the Desktop and Server world and think they are the shit. WTF? The Fedora community seems to have gone apeshit insane in recent years. First their stupid nonesense about moving
Svefg cbfg! V'z fcrpvny.
HUDs on cars currently are also less intrusive and only take up 5-10% of your viewing area. Google Glass will probably cause people to focus on the road differently just like when you hold your phone to your head it causes you to lose mental focus.
The P90 also had the FDIV bug. I know because I had one. I still have that chip sitting on a shelf as a souvenir. It actually ran my first Linux box.
I guess its kinda a tradition now that its the second year now:
It means public information, don't pretend you didn't know.
I didn't, because I've only heard it refered to as public information before. I've heard the term sources refering to where you get your sources from, but not open-source information. It turns out Bruce Perens acknowledged this special use of the term open source in the intelligence community when he announced open source software: http://www.catb.org/~esr/open-source.html
The intelligence community probably hates it when this happens. *rolls eyes*
Ok, thanks for the explanation and wasn't aware that the term open source information had such a long history. Still, the term open source gets used in ways that it probably shouldn't be in relation to software.
What is Open Source information? The OSI foundation doesn't seem to be doing a good job of enforcing the trademark of the term Open Source. I hear and see it used in many ways in which it should not be and the term has been grossly eroded in meaning over the past decade.
Or in fewer words, Blender is to Maya what GIMP is to Photoshop.
What's Maya? You mean those calendar people?
Well hey, someone has to put those layer 7 switches to good use.
