Wish this had made the real news. We know this sort of thing happens, but airline industries are highly effective at having this never reach public discussion.
So... "fun gimmick, or a serious commentary on an increasingly surveillance based society?"
How about both. Are having a sense of humor and making a serious comment mutually opposed? Slashdot deserves better.
Not 100% sure this is WebKit-free. On MacOSX there's still a reference to webkit in the UserAgent string as: "AppleWebKit" anyway.
Wild, I never expected these poll results to look like a progress meter.
Anyone can be seriously "offensive" in this business. All it takes is $100 laptop and msf.
Defense? That, my friends, is the multi-tens-of-billions industry we're in.
Cyber Command? Show me your defensive game and stop wasting my tax money.
Apparently, I'll never understand Slashdot. The latest junk from Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, Oracle, et al. make the front page, but one of the highest quality open source releases gets buried. (It's almost like people self-medicate their marketing these days, but separate issue.)
I got 6 years of uptime once off of NetBSD on sparc. This stuff is gold. It's platinum. It's so stable, you have to worry about making sure you get around to patching your apps because the OS just never dies... stick this on solid state storage with the new NAND support, and you don't even have to worry about spinning disk fails. As a network device OS, this will be an awesome high-uptime packet sensor or embedded packet router.
Bravo NetBSD! Keep up the good work. This is top headline stuff.
C'mon, this has HISTORY behind it.
Step 1. Download UNetBootin from SourceForge (2 minutes)
Step 2. Stick in a blank USB thumb drive and use UNetBootin to install Linux Mint version 6 or Puppy Linux version 4 onto the drive. (3 to 30 minutes depending on network speed)
Step 3. Reboot and tell your BIOS to make your newly bootable USB thumb drive the boot drive. (2 minutes)
