A year and half in simulated mars mission where you know it is a simulation has to be worse. In a real Mars mission, the crew will be know their activities are important: for the excitement to be first on mars, for the knowledge that a serious screw up could them their lives. On a simulated mission, you're just guinea pigs. Staying motivated must very difficult.
Yeah, let's not give those NASA slobs the benefit of doubt. Clueless as they are, they surely haven't found a way to motivate the simulation crew. They could have told the crew "the results of this simulation will make or break the Mars mission", for example, but - as a Slashdot commenter - I'm sure they haven't thought this stuff out very well.
1. post critical article about $product (make sure the article also contains rebuttals);
2. followup 2 weeks later with new $product announcement that proves previous criticism wrong;

Yes, I had 5.1 on a USB stick. After resume, my laptop's keyboard would not work anymore. No amount of documentation reading or googling solved that (the paper you kindly linked is one of the documents I remember reading).

Luckily, now there's an economic crisis, so we're starting incinerating plants over here in italy too.
Why don't you get your facts straight before commenting?
Italy does have incineration plants and recycling facilities. Although it's true that there is still way too much reliance on landfills.
Americans sure are obsessed with their president.
If Linux were as popular as Windows, do you believe it would still be more immune to malware than the Microsoft OS?
if you were offended by this (what i actually find to be quite clever) joke
"wouldn't of" + "what" instead of "which" + "eachother" + "noones" + wrong capitalization + bad punctuation = You find the joke "clever".
The only sorts of people satisfied with a smart phone or an ipad rather then a proper computer never really used the computer properly in the first place.
That describes something like >90% of the general population, IME.
No dependency tracking.
If you want dependency tracking, you can install pkgsrc for Linux, as I did.
To anyone who really digs the Slackware way, the concept of a distro-mandated packaging system simply doesn't make any sense.
