I'm sure if you were a rape victim who had her details just mindlessly thrown on to the web, you would totally understand that your revictimization was totally necessary to this "war".
So Wikileaks didn't leak personal information of rape victims? I'm just trying to sort out what you're objecting to, the truthfulness of the story, or whether you just don't think the press should report negative things about Wikileaks.
Mod +1. Assange is now purely in the vengeance game, so far as I can tell, though to be honest, at least as far as burning Clinton's career prospects to the ground, the term "damp squib" comes to mind. If there's one thing the DNC document dump proved, he's sitting on top of a big pile of nothing, and soon enough I think the press will just move on.
Now wait for when it doesn't just work. Windows' device detection and driver installation has its own pitfalls.
And frankly, it's been about ten years since I had a sound device not picked up by Linux. I'm sure there are hardware combinations that still produce this problem, but then again, having just upgraded workstations that are about seven or eight years old, I can tell you that a new version of Windows' reliable "window of availability" for drivers is in fact a lot narrower than Linux's. I'll wager I could install a copy of Mint or CentOS today, plug in my old 15 year old Umax scanner and it would work, but I can tell you right now that there hasn't been an edition of Windows released in the last decade that could run it.
Because Franco was just such a really great guy...
Wake me up when even Windows follows that paradigm. In fact, Microsoft is, at least in the enterprise, moving explicitly away from the GUI, and pushing Powershell for many tasks. But really, it's always been that way. GUI configuration tools in Windows have always presented only a portion of the configuration options, and many settings have had to be adjusted via the Registry. Even with GPOs, many settings can only be accessed via the Registry.
Like any system, whether it be Windows, OSX or Linux, everything works great out of the box... until it doesn't, and at that point the user is forced to go to some pretty daunting places. I've had enough fun trying to install drivers in Windows, or trying to solve problems on everything from screwed up profiles to getting the damned thing to time sync properly to know that Windows "ease of use" is more a marketing slogan than reality.
And with Metro onward, Microsoft also has introduced an XML configuration structure as well. Maybe for Joe and Jane Average running Windows 10 Home, as long as they're not interested in anything beyond the sparest kind of modifications that the increasingly simplified and unconfigurable Settings system makes available, Windows remains a simpler system, but for those administering AD domains and the like, it can be an incredibly complex environment. Our recent fun with configuring default applications on domain members, which amounts to configuring a custom XML file to roll out default app changes, shows that things are getting more complicated for any kind of complex administration.
And that's counting on something not going wrong. The printer subsystem in Windows, in my view, has become much more error prone and much less stable than in earlier versions of Windows. Getting rid of old drivers, or in some cases event trying to get rid of phantom printers often involves shutting the Spooler service down, and manually deleting printer entries both from the spooler directory and from the registry, and even then, we've had old phantom connections just spontaneously reappear, even where a member workstation has been moved to an entirely different GPO.
Windows reached a kind of peak of stability and usability with Windows XP and Server 2003. Things weren't perfect, but in general both workstations and servers tended to function in predictable ways that, at worst, you could at least configure around. But even with Server 2008 there were already signs, like IIS configuration nightmares, that stability was no longer a prime objective. Beyond the most basic usage scenarios, Windows can be a nightmare, particularly when things go wrong.
Windows has just as many obstacles if you want to go beyond defaults. I can't begin to count the number of times I've been pushed into the registry or local policies to make a change or fix something.
Firefox only works marginally better. Most of the problems came with the last major update for the Nexus 7 (2012), which was, as I recall, Kit Kat. At any rate, everything I've learned suggests slower flash memory is a big culprit.
Well, whatever advantages of the new Android version, I'm still getting app updates for the Google apps like Drive on my Nexus 7 (2012). Mind you, the Chrome updates over the last year or so have made the tablet largely useless for browsing, though I still use it as an ereader and can watch Netflix on it.
That's because they actually lived under Fascist governments. But the term has lost all meaning in the intervening period of time. Basically, any real or perceived government overreach is immediately declared the signs of fascism and a police state.
That's why I go with the unlocked Nexus devices. These are the reference Android installs, and the only thing they come with is the stock Google apps like Chrome, Calendar and the mail app. While Samsung may make pretty attractive hardware, I have little interest in the crapware and the odd changes they make to the UI and default apps.
Curse that evil SJW, Abraham Lincoln!
We live in the age of buzzwords and catchphrases which can be quickly used to categorize people without actually having to give thought to what they're saying. Words like "neocon", "fascist", "SJW", and "neo-liberal" all have very little meaning, but assist the simple mind, though sadly it is often to assist them in creating a faulty model of the world around them.
There is very little future in being right when your boss is wrong.
