The IBM PC. Then the clones. Then the x86 boxes. Call it what you want. Put in a disk an boot whatever OS you wanted. There was a time you could actually by a PC without any OS on it.

Android devices (and dare I say Apple devices) should ALL, and simply, be allowed to boot whatever you want. Just like your classic PC.

If you don't like Android, well, install Ubuntu (and good luck with that). How about Windows-10 or whatever you want. A phone or a tablet should be allowed to put whatever you want on it. Even a version of MS-DOS on an Atom based tablet, and as easily as with the classic PC.

Comment A "condom" fixes all serious problems (Score 1) 203

If you put any thought into it, a 'condom' will fix all serious issues facing people on Earth. In less than 200 years, if people had just one child, the Earth's population would be around 700 million. An environmentally stable population, and people could then have two children per family.

Will it happen? No F**KING WAY.

True. You can get the basics for about $50. Then pay $150 for installation. Or you have to wire it up... correctly.

I never would have bought one and spent the time for one. It came with my 2015 Subaru Crosstrek (same price as 2014 model without the camera). I love that thing in so many situations. Wasn't sold before I had it. I am now.

If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
