On topic, some sick fuck out there running around taking upskirt photos in public places? Yep, a couple good solid right hooks to the face by every male around would do wonders to curb such socially-deviant behavior.

I've been an M$ hater for many years now, with just cause, and will never change. They had their chance. I liked win3 - 3.11, then came win95
Ever program on a Win95 system? After spending an hour typing code, you go to save your work, only to see the system lock up and crash .. and you lose a pile of good starter code. I quickly learned to save after every line of code. Purely asinine ..

Win98 was the same thing .. but coming with new promises of improvements ..
Finally came win2k and some improvement but a whole new learning curve to install and configure properly. I reinstalled that over and over for a month until I has a system that stopped crashing

Microsoft Win-xx is the only OS that ever made me want to throw my computer out the window and go back to pencil and paper

Then I found Red Hat 9 .. Holy shit batman! This is everything win2k was suppose to be but it installed in an hour, came with all the applications I need and 'just worked' right out of the box .. perfectly!

Today I dual boot Debian Wheezy and PCBSD 10. I can emulate most of my classic rpg games on Wheezy, and use Freebsd for finance and accounting due it's security. I have one laptop that came with Vista that I use on occasion for software that is purely M$ locked in. Today M$ is dead to me and I see their fanbois as clueless 12 year olds that just don't know any better.

Funny how CRAB and the RNC were the ones that began the warrant less wiretapping and the "unconstitutional surveillance programs" in the first place.
It'll be interesting to see if they resume all their SS and gestapo crap with the next time they get another group of their stooges in the white house.
Hopefully the bulk of their mouth breather supporters across the nation will remember these words of today, but I won't hold my breath on that ever happening.

Yep, my thoughts exactly!
Welcome to the Divided Police States of America where you are guilty of anything the gestapo can think up against you, until you can prove yourself innocent .. which isn't going to happen.

If you're an American, probably best to find yourself a remote hole to crawl into until the big meteor or comet that's headed our way hits the planet and resets the game back to start.

Falling "back to debian" translates to falling back to stability.

From time to time I give the latest release of Ubuntu/Mint another look @ to see whats happening on the bleeding edge. But every time after a few short weeks the system seems too unstable, and/or some feature/s I use gets squirrely and I end up returning to the latest Debian, currently Wheezy.

Ubuntu/Mint is what you get when you take Debian Sid, polish it somewhat, slap your name on it as yours, and throw it out there with great fanfare and media hype as the latest and greatest.

What planet are you from? General human nature makes us all selfish self centered pricks. Here, on earth, you put two people within 100 yards of each other and you're going to get some form of confrontation. Theft, argument, fight or death. That's just the way it is, was and has always been. Will pretty much be the same on mars as well.

Comment: Why ?? (Score 0) 103

I always wonder why M$ refers to their business centers as a "Campus" when it's nothing more than a factory and/or business center and/or sweat shop for programmers.

The image that comes to mind, of an M$ programming group, or "campus", or whatever you may wish to call them, is the scene from Meet the Robinsons, of the future world of Doris the Bowler Hat.
