I don't understand, could you explain how is 64-bit support in Linux shit?
All drivers are available in both 32-bit and 64-bit, and one can run both 32-bit and 64-bit applications as in Windows.
Also, Ubuntu is not the same as Linux. The 64-bit support (especially 32bit-on-64bit support) depends a lot on how the distribution handles it. I started using a 64-bit installation (with some 32-bit stuff like Wine for win32 apps) of Mandriva Linux since 2005 and it always had the support of using 32-bit applications/packages directly as well.
If you instead meant some 64-bit specific problems not related to 32-bit support.. well, I really don't see those.
The Finnish broadcaster YLE reports that it started filtering the vuvuzela sound on Monday:
(bad Google translation)
openSUSE has an RPM that pulls in Flash, because they're not allowed to redistribute it directly.
Are you sure? I see a 6 megabyte rpm there, quite large for a simple download wrapper:
What is surprising (to me at least) is that the unsecured WiFi was illegal in the first place.
Only accessing them without a permission is illegal (as said in TFA; the summary fails to mention that, however)
Passing laws against using an unencrypted network will not actually protect anyone - it will simply give them a false sense of security.
The law is against *unauthorized* usage of an unencrypted Wi-Fi network.
There seems to be some confusion. The law in question only forbids unauthorized access. It does not forbid unsecured Wi-Fi itself (yes, summary is wrong).
And now they may be changing the law to allow accessing unsecured Wi-Fi without asking for permission.
Just go with the flow control, roll with the crunches, and, when you get a prompt, type like hell.
