"you're naïve enough to believe that V. Putin and Russia truly giving Snowden asylum based on strictly humanitarian reasons."

Of course not. He's doing it to stick it to the US. I'm sure Snowden moderates what he says about Russia, but he still criticizes them.

A warrant isn't "evidence." Snowden, whether you agree with him or not, seems to think he was doing the right thing for our country. The existence of a "moral imperative" is a subjective judgment.

I had a Windows phone and the OS was head and shoulders above its mobile OS competitors. Intuitive and fast interface, and amazing performance for the hardware. Unfortunately there was an astonishing lack of apps, so I had to switch back to android. It was kind of 1995 in reverse: I gave up a better Windows-based OS for an inferior Linux-based one because the Linux-based one had better commercial software support.

I know, slashdot, M$, BSOD, blah blah blah, but I see them around plenty. I have a Surface 4 and I love it, and even some of the Mac websites were conceding that it's actually a pretty slick machine. And not just targeting you, but it's so weird when Linux and Mac fans both argue that sales figures are probative of quality, considering Mac's pre-2000 history, and Linux's entire history.
