Most of your advocacy is sloganeering against a whole range of software/tools/standards/sites - don't use Adobe Flash, don't use iBad, don't use TiVo, don't use FaceBook, don't use this, don't use that....
Instead, why doesn't the FSF/GNU project come out w/ products that are real alternatives to all the myriad list of things that you do not want people to use? So that you can have a positive alternative to offer to people, other than just ask them to follow your whims?
This decision makes sense, since Debian is so dominant on Intel boxes that they can't afford resources to support SPARC - even though the port already exists and it's simply a matter of migrating the same incremental changes that are there on Lintel to SPARC.
So much for the claim Linux fans make of the OS being 'everywhere' - here is a UNIX only CPU: no version of Windows ever ran on it, only UNIX-like OSs, such as SunOS, Solaris, Linux and *BSD.
I'm considering getting a PC/laptop for SteamOS. I'll probably go w/ the Intel graphics, instead of either AMD or NVIDIA. If the Iris Pro has caught up w/ these other 2, good, but even otherwise, I'd want to avoid the fiasco of bad or incompatible drivers from either AMD or NVIDIA. Intel's graphics works w/ even BSD, so that's what I'd use.
Had I been shopping for another Windows 10 box, I'd go w/ an AMD. But as one poster observed, power consumption of those things is still an issue
This story is pure insanity. Advertising is one of basic instincts in animal nature. Women advertise to men, men to women. Without advertising evolution and progress would stop and die.
Also, who exactly is Thomas Wells to re-define morality? Taking deist principles out, morality is the application of the golden rule! Do unto others as... Since people are at liberty to ignore advertising, along w/ a lot of other things, there is nothing 'immoral' about it. Annoying, maybe. But immoral? Absolutely not!!!
