Comment Retouching (Score 2, Insightful) 150

It should be worth noting that the "photoshopping" means using Adobe Photoshop. Retouching is the word for a general process of photo modification regardless of the software used. In short, every time someone says "photoshopped", they are advertising Adobe Photoshop for no compensation. :)

Comment Linux is but a piece of the puzzle (Score 1) 742

Let's not forget that Linux is just a component of the entire GNU/Linux (I know, I know) system. The accompanying software has grown considerably: GNOME, KDE, browsers, various programming languages and environments, utilities, networking tools, etc. all siphon the interest of a young developer into other areas. Linux is, for all its good and bad sides, stable and feature-full. It's not very tasty to hack on unless you have specific interest in OS internals. So while Linux might be losing the influx of fresh blood, there's still lots of energy around it.

Comment Re:Communal Behavior != Communism (Score 1) 554

Pardon me, there is private property in communism. Name one country in the past or present where you don't own the bread you eat (once you were given it). Similarly, in capitalism, you don't own your salary until you've received your paycheck, so try to find your way around that.

P.S. If you do, I'm your loyal worshipper :)

Comment ARCHAIC (Score 2, Interesting) 502

Cannibalism. Homosexuality. Abortion. Incest. Animals do it, humans do it; those are Mother Nature's inventions, and who are we to try and remove them from the natural order of things? I call for an international effort to form ARCHAIC (Advisory and Regulatory body for the Conservation of Homosexuality, Abortion, Incest and Cannibalism)!

Srsly now, you guys in funny skirts, let's stop pretending like you are above the Nature and stop destroying its fine inventions. =)
