There is an x server for the ipad...
It's not laziness. It's to fit each line of code in an 80 column display.
It's not about helping valve out, it's about the market forcing prices to be low. it's capitalism working. The games will cost what they have to, and not more (this is the idea anyway)
The fear is that the presence of free games will cause an overall drop in quality; mobile gaming is used as evidence of this.
Everything is coming up Millhouse!
how much worse could your boss/team lead/manager screw things up if they thought they could code?
Maybe they would be better at their jobs if they knew a little more about software, and that it is not black magic, but an art that takes time and care to get good results.
In any university-track school curriculum, calculus is a requirement, not an elective.
Yea, but the problems are the following:
1) except for engineering and math students, very few students will *take* higher math classes in college
2) the first two weeks of college calculus covered more then the entire year of high-school calculus. It's slowed down so people who want to go to college, but don't want to take math, can keep up.
3) learning abstract logic through programming in an expressive language like python or ruby (or perhaps some domain-specific language) is much more applicable to day-to-day life then calculus, which is only really used by engineers and scientists. Even math-heavy jobs like those in the accounting and finance fields don't use much calculus, do they?
I'm sorry. My responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.
Does it bother any of my fellow pedantic Slashdot that the software depicted in the movie "Her" isn't really an OS, and doesn't perform the functionality of an OS (such as scheduling and memory management), but rather a novel user-interface layer, and would likely be implemented as some user space package?
i guess what i'm trying to ask is...is Siri an OS now? is sphynx?
yes, but in C you can use it as both. if you type-pun a pointer-to-struct-pixel to a pointer-to-struct-coord, the addresses work out the same. add a few function-pointers, and you can get some pretty good polymorphism going.
Sales pay structure is different. They are paid by the sale, not by the year. Therefore, their pay is dependent on how much work they do. Best deal you can hope for in IT is by-the-hour -- because by-the-issue would raise all kinds of new problems.
As a software developer, your only hope for such astronomical pay is either by stock-options, or by selling a product on your own.
All I was saying is that any latency that the user experiences has very little to do with kernel design, and much more to do with the UI layer.
Technically, one of the problems with micro-kernel design is MORE latency then a monolithic kernel, not less. Not that it matters with today's computers. It's just a little apparent that you don't know what you're talking about. Maybe you should go back and finish that degree, eh Billy Gates?
Reply to undo erroneous mod. sorry.
So now we should go back to 4:3 so our 16:9 content can have a 'tool window' below it? sounds like an infinite loop we've got ourselves in, huh?
