Comment Re:Considered a solved problem? (Score 1) 742

When I was a younger fellow, I did a bit of work on kernel, xfs tools, mplayer, coreutils, and a few other things. Now, chances are, when I buy New Laptop X, my fave Linux distro goes right on with little trouble (except maybe for #@*!(*@ proprietary NVidia driver), so there's not much incentive to work on it.

That said, for a huge pile of source, it's pretty damned easy to use a tool like grep to find a problem and fix it when I need to.

Comment Re:Duality of Wozniak's Apple Versus Jobs' Apple (Score 1) 789

Well, you didn't have to use Apple's tools. I used Turbo Pascal, Lightspeed/THINK C/C++, Absoft FORTRAN, and somebody's BASIC. And you didn't have to go through Apple's store and approval process. Those innovations came much later. The SCSI port was standard, but of course, who else used that? and keyboard, mouse etc... but it did have a standard RS-232, didn't it?


IDEs With VIM Text Editing Capability? 193

An anonymous reader writes "I am currently looking to move from text editing with vim to a full fledged IDE with gdb integration, integrated command line, etc. Extending VIM with these capabilities is a mortal sin, so I am looking for a linux based GUI IDE. I do not want to give up the efficient text editing capabilities of VIM though. How do I have my cake and eat it too?"
