Which is why you should use the x86(intel atom) version instead of the arm version. It is much much much faster. Once you have downloaded the atom version, you can choose between arm and intel when creating a new emulator.

Why Google have chosen "download arm only" as the default, I really don't understand. But this is a case studio in "Defaults matter".

Yes steam itself is a dep file, but I am pretty sure that the games installed from within steam are not .dep files so that does not really help.

And it especially going to be multi distribution issue to install these SELinux rules. Steam itself can run on other distributions but I don't think there is a general way to write distribution agnostic SELinux rules.

I think I can win the game 80% of the time, and the rest of the time i die due to mistakes. Yes random effects changes the difficulty level, but there are no cases where you don't have a change.

(At least for the standard start ship. Some of the other ships without shields and/or weapons are much much more difficult).

Comment And can we please have a "Newest first" option (Score 1) 2219

Can we please have our "Newest first, ignore threads" option back?

Usecase: I just re-visited this thread about the beta, and I would like to read all new entries since I last read it. Which is exactly what "Newest first, ignore threads" would do. But it seems that feature is lost too*.

Remember should not be about making a new slashdot, but about making a better slashdot. It currently fails in that regard.

*And I lost that feature many years ago, but might be a good time to got it back.

Oh and there seems to be a bug in this comment, where it doubles the line spacing between my paragraphs.

And I think message really shows the problem: Let me show how I as a user see the beta communication:

Hey, we have this total broken beta slashdot site, and in a few months you will all be forced to use it if you want to browse slashdot. But don't worry we hope we will fix the worst bugs before the cutoff date.

Which raise the question: If you know its so broken that most people find it useless, why do you present it as "The new slashdot, which all users will be forced to browse in a few months".

So why are you forcing users to use the beta when you even admit it's not done ?

To stay kinda on-topic, it reminds me of the release of kde 4.0

But I really hope the tech team will take a step back, look at why anyone thinks beta stops, and then do a re-design so we get a new usable site instead of beta.

ps: What about talking to the guys which did stackoverflow. They might want to take over development and they kinda know how to make modern cool websites.

So search for "Firefox 28" instead.

The problem with using names is that you then have to map them back to numbers to use. If this feature is included in Firefox ugly cat, and later, does it work in firefox 24?
