It is not the way X works is particularly secure to begin with. Once an app has a connection to the X server, it has full control over the world of window, pixmaps and events on the server including of course all other apps.
Not that I have any faith in Wayland or Mir being any better, its developers coming from the X world in the first place, I am sure that they will make their new shiny systems vulnerable in the same ways.
Because focusing the radiation with a parabolic mirror to a single point in the brain is the way to go
That's a very good point. I wish I had mod points left.
I require an operating system that isn't crippled, and a full-sized keyboard for typing.
I don't think I would mind a small tablet if it came with a decent OS and a USB port for my HHKB.
Is the TSA kidnapping people now also?
I remember when a co-worker ported a program from Windows to the Mac a few years ago. He had the problem that it made the Mac hibernate every time the program was run.
It took a while to find out why... the answer was that his code had called "Sleep()" with a capital S instead of "sleep()". Apparently, elevated privileges were not required to make the computer go to sleep.
4.3 million SEK is probably a large portion of the movie's total revenue, if not surprassing what it has already made.
It was made for ad-funded free TV for Chris's sake
It got low reviews from critics, and the series was already a trite.
Would filesharing it at low quality really degrade it's quality? Sorry, but you can't polish a turd.
(No offence to my cousin's husband who plays the lead in this movie. He's got to eat too...)
In Sweden, forfeiting pets in illegal, but has been done anyway...
Forfeting homes happens all the time, even though there is a severe shortage of apartments for rent.
When I went to primary school back in the '80s, there was a bomb threat almost every year around exam time at the beginning of summer.
Like Chrome, but does not phone home to Google.
Does the D in DHS stand for douchebag?
Bah. You are over-analysing. "Windows" is a crap brand, plain and simple, and that is both Microsoft's fault and Microsoft's fault that they don't realize it.
Normal users associate "Windows" with work, malware, slow computers (because of malware, or the software installed to combat malware) and annoying popups (not just malware, but Windows itself: Sticky keys, "You have unused icons on your desktop", etc.)
When people see a "Windows Phone", they think "do I have to install antivirus on it", not "oh, this is something that I am going to love".
I think that Microsoft should have used the name Metro, (which is what the touch-screen interface was called before it was renamed "Modern".):
"Metro-phone", "Metro-tablet". "Metro-app in a window on the MS Windows desktop" etc.
On computers with different screen sizes and aspect ratios, you can not compare just pixel size.
1920Ã--1080 is low resolution if your screen is 50" 16:9, like a modern TV.
If your screen is 13", then 1920Ã--1080 has a resolution of 169.5 pixels per inch, which isn't that bad.
For a desktop computer's screen, I would say that 100-110 PPI is the "sweet spot" for using most applications without any screen scaling. For a laptop you often have the screen closer to your eyes, so you would want a somewhat higher resolution.
If a train station is a place where a train stops, what's a workstation?
