Dammit, it was us, the Fedora Community, who released Fedora. Not Red Hat. It's not their distro.
If you get to know about a crime and do not report it, you automatically become an accomplice. He basically forced them to report him.
It's adequate for big-three (Intel, nVidia, AMD) which solves 95% desktop problems. It's passable for ARM-based platforms. So fallback is needed for 1% of real hardware and some percent of virtual machines. Most virtualisation platforms support 3D accel for Linux.
Besides, how much power do you need to display few textured rectangles?
Vista was released in 2006. Six years in IT industry is eternity. So "always had ASLR" is basically true.
You need good filesystem, with embedded data checksum and self-healing using redundant copies. For Linux - btrfs is fine. For Mac OS X & Linux - ZFS.
Thats OK, apparently Wayland is not for you. It is for distribution makers to integrate into OS. So dont worry, you should not care about Wayland. Leave it to technically knowledgable people to decide when it should be made available to casual users.
There's a great quote I saw recently:
General: "So, how do we get Stuxnet 2 in Iran? USB sticks won't do it any more"
Sergeant: "What if we crash land an infected drone there?"

Now, they're talking about double-clicking on icon of
So it means that MeeGo is even more dead? Intel was last standing supporter if it, and now Intel is interested in different, competing OS. Sad.
Mainline Linux supports 4096 CPU cores for almost two years now.
There are env variables. See example under “Settings”: http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/xdg-user-dirs
None. Typical user shouldn't mess with things set up by distro. How many non-power users want to change localisation of “My Documents” in Windows?
If user need to change the directory he should ask someone knowledgable enough or be able to navigate hidden directories and use text editor.
Nb. there is xdg-user-dirs-gtk for handling migration after language change.
WTH?? Why are you avoiding mechanism which is in place for those things, namely XDG user dirs? Shotwell, as every good behaving application, uses directory which user defined for storing pictures. This define can be changed with command
xdg-user-dirs-update --set PICTURES [folder you care about]
Or by editing ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs.
