So medium is now a small?
No, they've regressed to the mean.
I'm trying to figure out what bullshit rip-off "service" sponsored this article.

I think it's pretty awesome.
Which computer company is letting you do some things on your computer?
Wow. That's some shitty writing.
You know when a movie is so bad it's good? This writing doesn't achieve that. It reaches that exact, elusive point where it's as bad as it can possibly be without crossing over to the other side.
>K'Breel was deposed and executed after his repeated failures in repelling the Terran aggressor. We don't speak of him. All hail mighty G'Ranee, Supreme Leader for Life!
LATE-BREAKING NEWS FROM THE COUNCIL: VICTORY! The Council of Elders has confirmed the blueworlders' resumption of aggression upon our noble red sands. K'Breel, Speaker for the Council of Elders, addressed the planet thusly: OKAY. Okay, so I'm K'Breel (even though anyone on Slashdot can assume the mantle merely by declaring themselves Speaker for the Council), and I'm late, but I'm merely chronologically late, not as in the Late Second Adjunctant to the Council Formerly Known As G'Ranee.
But domestic politics is beneath us tonight -- just take a glance at the blue world beneath us for a look at how bad that can get -- and let us focus on what's important: over the past sol or so, our Planetary Defense Force has been so good at pre-emptively distracting the blueworlders with tasks like landing comets, grabbing their prospective mates by their genitals, low-planetary orbit missions, and just general tribal infighting that we haven't had to shoot down any robotic invaders in quite some time. But when the opportunity presents itself, we take advantage of it, and so, we did. Hence the trivial elimination of yet another putative invader from elsewhere. We'd do it every day, except that the blueworlders lack the gelsacular fortitude to send us more targets. Now as to gelsacular fortitude, on to Second Adjunctant G'Ranee...
When a junior reporter pointed out that the destroyed invader was merely a technology demonstrator built on the cheap to see if a landing was possible, and that the blueworlders' actual payload was safely in orbit, K'Breel had the reporter's gelsacs launched into orbit alongside those of G'Ranee for a closer look.
> Because we've yet to be shown a single shred of evidence to back up the claim.
I would say that the US doing something as fucking crazy as engaging in a publicly announced "cyber"-attack against Russia qualifies as evidence. I am fairly certain the US does not want to get into a "cyber"-war with Russia. It feels compelled to respond.
...it is encouraging that enough people care enough to leave to make Yahoo do this.
> I literally pissed on the guy's grave when he died
This brings up a counterpoint concerning data collection, though. There are a few graves I would like to piss on but I cannot find out where these people are buried.
I don't use FB in my personal life, and I consider Slack invasive enough at work to be barely tolerable.
This is the correct answer.
I don't remember any user database crashes. I created my account the afternoon of the first day that accounts existed, and it still works.
Now Valve will be punished for SteamOS and Vulkan.
Microsoft doing what it does best: leveraging monopoly influence.
Fenced in by free speech.
That's some Orwellian shit right there.
I keep a Windows laptop around, to both keep up to date with how recent updates are coming along, as well as to play old games.
Windows is approaching the point where it might be workable for day to day use.
For work purposes, I don't need much, A bunch of terminal windows, a ssh client that can handle private keys stored on a Yubikey, and a web browser.
While the terminal emulation of the Bash prompt in the Ubuntu subsystem is still very poor, I could probably manage most of what I need for work from a windows box.
For my most common hobby, I need a few more things. Good NFS performance, a working automounter, an Xserver that supports hardware accelleration, and for the OS to not intercept any function keys for its own use.
The NFS performance of Windows 10 is decent, but alas if you install autofs into the Linux subsystem, it is unable to mount files. The few attempts I've made at mounting a NFS server from inside of the Linux subsystem have all failed. It appears that all mounts need to be done from Windows itself.
There are decent Xserver options for windows, but they (along with most other programs) suffer from Windows intercepting any press of F1 and using it to pop up a useless help screen, rather than passing it to the underlying application.
As far as I can tell, any program that doesn't make the right system call to indicate that it intends to use F1, will never see those keypresses as windows will intercept them.
If the automounter was working, and if there was a way to disable Window's interception of F1, I might actually be able to use it for hobby use as well.
Until then, I mainly use it for old games, and keep any productive work on Linux, BSD, and OSX.
You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
