The author's intentions could be summarized as, "Does this false dichotomy make me look smart?"
1) This actually shows how ugly web design loses popularity!.
For people who are two lazy to follow the above link: the thought, "Beta isn't so bad." crossed my mind when I saw their page.
Or a random guy blew up something, why didn't the CIA/NSA/FBI know that he was doing this...
If those organizations are going to continue receiving more money, more privilege, and less oversight in the name of protecting us from terrorists, then they deserve blame when they have nothing to show for what they have taken from us.
The sample size of total number of Tesla's is statistically significant. Total size of population relative to ICE vehicles is irrelevant.
Not all of us have access to the time machine required to know *which* 1TB that is.
Are you willing to share yours?
Commenting to fix mis-mod - accidentally modded flamebait, but sublime was the first thing that came to my mind as well.
Off-topic - this was actually the one thing I thought the beta made better, the left/right split of positive/negative mods as well as larger hit boxes, I think it will reduce this kind of error in the future (I mean.... #betasux).
The benchmarks on Phoronix did temperature, and commented on (though didn't measure) noise. Was actually a fairly comprehensive, well done benchmark, the only thing missing was frame latency measurements.
Yeah, but it tab completes, so on the other hand it's the only word you have to type and the only spelling you have to get correct.
My biggest gripe with service is that it doesn't support tab-completion.
Just because you can point to one microkernel that doesn't really work, and one monolithic kernel that does, will not invalidate the perfectly valid points made about the benefits of modularization. Yours is just a logical fallacy:
eg. "I'm sure everybody that likes bicycles never drives a car..."
Except it's not valid points made about modularization in this context. It's a blanket statement that modular is better, for which a single counter example is sufficient to disprove. The AC's post didn't mention specific flaws with systemd, instead they asserted generalizations about how modular is better than monolithic. Just because there are potential benefits to a modular system over a monolythic system does not mean a specific modular system is better than a specific monolythic system, leaving the AC's post as little more than FUD.
This is not the point or benefit of the original UNIX and much of the Linux architecture. By doing small tasks well, a reliable toolchain can be built of those small tasks. *OF COURSE* a monolithic megamonster is going to have fewer lines of code than all the different components shoe-horned into it. And of course *it's going to get details wrong* in those individual components, but the monolithic megamonster may rely on those flaws or make debugging of them unreasonably difficult.
I can only assume that all people who support this argument run GNU Hurd, as it's a microkernel, instead of that 16,000,000+ line of code "monolithic megamonster" known as the Linux kernel.
Judging by the comments, the feedback was immediate and clearly negative.
I cannot speak for the forum moderation side, but my reaction to the front page was an knee jerk: "Oh no!, not another portal full of noise I cannot speed-read through." Text and hyperlinks are what we need, please, and as little graphics as possible. Think lynx, thank you."
: It's around 30 metres in diameter;
: Debris (ejecta) has been thrown 15 km from the site of the explosion;
As NASA notes, the crater is at 3.7 degrees north latitude, 53.4 degrees east longitude on Mars.
Surface impacts are more common on Mars than on Earth, since the red planet's thin atmosphere isn't much use to prevent space rocks reaching the surface. NASA says there are around 200 hits each year that produce craters larger than 3.9 meters in diameter.
As for the colour of the image, NASA states: "Because the terrain where the crater formed is dusty, the fresh crater appears blue in the enhanced colour of the image, due to removal of the reddish dust in that area.""

That said, I want to ask Dice why they are so eager to kill off Slashdot.
Is there a secret buyer somewhere waiting to grab this domain, Dice ? Just tell us. There are those amongst us who can afford to pay for the domain. What we want is to have a Slashdot that we know, that we can use, that we can continue to share information with all others.
Please stop all your destructive plans for Slashdot, Dice."
"I was just telling Pat this morning as I made sweet Nixon love to her that what the web needed was a whitespace-riddled atrocity. Slashdot Beta is the Tet Offensive of discussion sites, so screw you, you stupid hippies."
Henry Kissinger was said to have been very pleased as well. Dr. Kissinger was quoted as saying "In Soviet Russia, Slashdot betas you!""
