No they are stuck in the 1990s
Their rant about Linux is the same argument that was true back in the mid 1990s however Linux has matured sense then.
Some of the biggest business problems they face can be far easier fixed with a partial adoption of Linux.
I am not an open source zealot. But in terms of control, and configurability Linux is superior to Windows. That comment was to try to silence a flood of just to switch to Linux posts.
You'll find that your idea of "rights" disappears quite quickly as soon as any functioning society breaks down.
My "idea" of rights exists at any scale and under any circumstances. That's the entire point. Irrational people do indeed look to take advantage circumstances in which they feel willing to take the chance that their use of violence will go unchallenged because of unpleasant or unexpected circumstances. Which doesn't change the fact that they lose their claim to life when they deny you yours. That's the right you naturally have: to use (or have used on your behalf) the violence necessary to defend your life. Why? Because rational people don't kill other people except in self defense. Those who initiate the violence waive their rights to live in peace.
You're confusing having a right with happening to have the power to defend it at some particular time. These are not the same thing.
Exactly, because in the jungle there are no rights
Oh, I get it now. You think that human beings aren't any different in their cognitive abilities, capacity for reason, and ability to think abstractly and communicate than are, say, tigers or lemurs.
I don't need it, but I need a government to tell others that.
No, you can tell them yourself, and if they are too irrational to digest the concept, and you're too weak to defend against violent, irrational people, then you need a government to help you protect your rights.
For the enterprise version we really need it predictable so it can be managed. Even if talking to MS is harmless and overall a good thing, it means you are having your computer talk to something you may not want too.
At work we are still on Windows 7 with little chance going over to 10 because of stuff like this. (I would prefer Linux, but our management is stuck in the 1990s)
AT&T and Sprint Have LTE too. Perhaps you are a hating Verizon fanboy.
They are not preventing Netflix or YouTube, There isn't any sign that they are slowing down their performance. It is just they are counting the data the same as any other internet download.
The only twist is that Verizon isn't charging for bandwidth for its own service.
You could say the cost of Verizon mobile is being paid from the service fee, and you are actually paying more then than the data cap fees.
In a modern society arms are useless.
Really? Then why does every single political leader - across the spectrum, including flaming lefty tyrants, eastern European strongmen, laid-back Scandinavian royalty and elected officials, mayors of cities, etc. - have armed protection at their disposal?
Why do police departments train in the use of arms? Why do militaries, even strictly defensive ones, understand the need to be able to use arms?
It's nice for you that you live in a fantasy world where there is no need for a 90-pound woman to ever defend herself against a man three times her size. Where is it, exactly, that you live that there are absolutely no violent people, no robberies, no rapes, no crimes that endanger lives? Please be specific, and if you would, please link to some reports that show your zero crime rate. Not that you will, of course, because you're full of it, and you know it.
What a load of shit. Without a government, you have no rights. Go live in a jungle sometime...
Wow, you really haven't thought this through, have you? You should.
So, you and another 100 people are in the jungle. 10 of you decide to get together in a group (you know, assembling) and chant something they think is important (you know
The US constitution recognizes this, and its first amendment explicitly says that the government can't infringe on that right. There's no place in the constitution that defines the right to assemble or speak
Without a government, a society, a rule of law, etc there is no such thing as 'rights'.
Nonsense. Without rule of law, there is no protection of rights. You really think that your right to speak comes from the government? You truly don't understand that it's the government's job to prevent other people (and those same government institutions) from forcibly shutting you up?
Sorry, I only read serif fonts.
They are not too many original ideas anywhere.
However part of accademia is the ability to site ideas that you have collected. However using a collection of preused ideas usually creates something that is unique and original.
The best punishment for him, would be the fact that these evil governments really just don't care about his involvement in wiki-leaks. He is let out, he goes to sweden gets tried fairly for his charge.
