A sad day for many of us.

I use vtwm. It's worked well for me since X11R4, and continues to work well, without the eye candy, bloat, and screen confusion of the Gnome or KDE desktops. Just turned on 3 noob Linux admins to it, because it *leaves your computer free to do work* instead of burning cycles with transparency, rounding, and useless cutesiness.

People seem to get this impression because the desktop effects stack of Linux is poorly optimized. It can be seen when trying to run a full bells'n'whistles Linux desktop on a low-end Atom/Bobcat system, and the animations turn choppy. At the same time, the same machines are butter smooth with Windows 7 and 8. (For games, Linux and Windows are already getting very close in terms of performance.)

Properly optimized, low latency, compositing desktop is a joy to use and will not "burn cycles" in a bad way.

What do people that have contributed to the code base get? Who is getting money for this? I don't understand how you can go from an opensource project to a for-profit project.

With open source you let people use your code, and they let others - including you - use their code in turn. That's the payment, if you will. If you contributed to CM, then the availability of the rest of the CM codebase under a compatible license is what you get.

As for profits - nothing stops you from taking the rest of the CM code base and trying to make it a business, in the same way the CM devels are doing now. And if you do, you won't have to pay the CM developers (or the kernel devels, or user-space tool developers and so on) any more than they have to pay you.

However the government assistance to Boeing could be approaching or exceeding it's contribution to the economy considering the vast sums going in and issues like the industrial espionage at taxpayers expense for their benefit that came out in court a few years ago. In the end it may be less of a drain to just buy stuff from Airbus instead of socialising the losses from the company copying their designs with the aid of spies.

The card readers that I've worked with do their encoding at the reader. They should only be showing the user (the clerk) something like the last 4 digits, if anything.

From what others said, based on the vague information released, it sounds like the card readers had firmware updates that allowed this to happen.. I still see two tremendously troubling things.

1) If it was someone in-house who did that, how the hell were they allowed to do that.

2) Even if the firmware captured all the card, why was it allowed to send out to a 3rd party destination. If it's all on private circuits, they simply wouldn't have a way to talk out. Obviously, they did, or else it wouldn't have been a breech.

The first series was; the second series was released in 1991 in both EGA and CGA versions (yes, really.) Before DOOM there was Catacomb 3D, which was also released in 1991.

When Jill of the Jungle came out in 1992 with VGA graphics, it poked fun at Apogee for still making EGA games. Which was a bit silly given that Epic had released ZZT in 1991 with only ASCII graphics.

Personally I didn't have a computer powerful enough to run DOOM, Raptor, and many other awesome VGA games until early 1993. Besides, it's not like it's illegal to download and play games that are a year or two old.

For another, many phones currently don't have a built-in ID,

Every handset has a mandatory IMEI. If a thief has the ability to change the IMEI on a handset, then they can avoid being bricked anyway. (How else does the carrier know which handset to brick if not the IMEI?) So a system based on an IMEI blacklist is precisely as useful as an system based on an IMEI brick list, but without the potential for irreversible mistakes.
