Yeah, the chance of someone breaking your wife while using her is much smaller.
Is your name ironic?
Well, honestly, I'd rather take Microsoft's money than yours, especially if I then spent that money producing good hardware that worked great with Linux... *shrugs*
I just bought an Asus(X59GL) with windows, I would've much preferred to buy one with Linux but it was actually 80GBP cheaper with the windows tax, I guess that I'll spend "ethically" when I've got more money.
Seriously, stop being sensible on Slashdot, you're spoiling it for the rest of us..
You're right that I should've gathered more from the context, but in an article about neanderthals I was thinking in "evolutionary" time, so not quite geological time, but it would still consider 500 years fairly recent.

the baptists, have been around since before there was "christianity" much less catholicism, right?

They're not considered to be protestant either, just baptist.
My holy book says differently.
That depends how you define unrelated, but I think that the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act of 2001 is a perfect example of the fact that the name of a law is chosen to try and make sure that it gets passed.
If you read Asimov's book you will find out that the zero-law was added later.
You wouldn't call the others the one-law the two-law and the three-law, would you?
But enough with the pedantry!
I couldn't agree more, I just wish that
It's all glued together with open standards
applied to package management, I think that would be a huge step towards 'modularity' between distros, and create a healthier Linux ecosystem.
