The central power station is not making its emissions a few feet from the sidewalk. Its pollution controls aren't restricted by weight or the need for portability.
It's also way more efficient.
Electrifying the vehicle fleet is like modularizing your code. Instead of being tied to petroleum, with an electric fleet you can snap in nuclear, tidal, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric, or whatever else turns out to be a good idea.
In Canada (not sure about other places) they often contrast the tossed salad with the melting pot. In a tossed salad, there is distinction without separation (no ghettos yet no assimilation).
And what makes you think there are no immigrant ghettos in Canada?
You're right. Ghettos, no-go areas and riots are much better than assimilation.
Are you Native American? If not, you're a hypocrite.
Do you seriously think the Native Americans don't regret the way they left their borders open to anyone who turned up?
If they could go back in time and build a wall to keep Europeans out, I suspect most would eagerly have done so.
If you don't mind your dev code out in the cloud. What could possibly go wrong?
Look on the plus side. The NSA will be able to let you know whether you have any serious bugs.
How are any of those options "more typing"?
Hint: the idea behind a GUI is that it's a GRAPHICAL User Interface, not a really crappy command line.
.. was naming it Windows 8, instead of Windows Tablet Edition, which could also be added to Windows 7 as a Tablet Mode.
Windows 8 was a desperate attempt to get some kind of prescence on tablets and phones. To do that, they need apps. To get apps, they need to convince developers that they should develop apps for Windows 8. To do that, they had to push the tablet interface on the desktop.
Of course the idea was retarded from the start, which is why it's come around to bite them in the ass. They threw their desktop users under the bus and gained only a minimal number of tablet and phone users.
The parent shows you the effects of a careful propaganda campaign to divide the voters.
The propaganda machine counts pensioners together with welfare recipients to "prove" that government is keeping everyone dependent. That's Romney's "47%": anyone who pays into the system and expects to get anything back out is a "taker".
Two mainstream Presidential candidates tried to make food stamps a racial issue and claimed that all the children, disabled people, and Wal-Mart workers who receive them are lazy deadbeats.
If you can keep half the victims resenting the other half, you are well prepared to implement Jay Gould's solution: 'I can hire one half of the working class to kill the other half".
>I could be in a better financial position if I quit my job, declared bakruptcy, and took the handouts.
See the victory of the propaganda? They've got somebody believing this even though he has an Internet connection and could find out the truth within minutes.
I worked for a military contractor once and was told that there was a good reason not to talk about classified material even after it appeared in the press. Our enemies couldn't be sure that the press reports were right, not without confirmation from classified sources.
The military has now done what I was told not to, confirming the authenticity of the Guardian report.
You know that more than one person expressing different opinions is not, in fact, hypocrisy, right?
Bingo. The whole point of DRM is to 'wall off parts of the web'... it exists soley to prevent people from accessing data, and has no other purpose.
And what do you propose then? No DRM at all? Just <video> tag and that's it?
Sounds good to me. It's not like you can't download all the same videos from pirate sites despite the DRM.
'Cause when you try to run that graphical program from your Ubuntu server and display the output on Windows, it doesn't work because they've invented Yet Another Graphics System that's incompatible with everything else.
The beauty of X was that you knew an app on SGI Unix would display on OS/2, SunOS, VMS or anything else that supported X in the OS or third-party addons because they all used the same protocol. You still know an X11 app on Ubuntu will display on Windows so long as it doesn't do video playback or other kinds of special cases which are just too damn slow over a LAN.
Tomorrow, who knows what will talk to what?
Mint is mostly MATE (aka Gnome 2++) and Gnome 3. So I don't see any reason why they'd have to switch to Mir.
