Comment Re:Assange lacks integrity. (Score 1) 127

Manning will still be a convicted felon and traitor

No. Manning was never charged or tried for treason. She's a convicted felon, but in no way a traitor. More than one active duty general and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have admitted that her leaks caused no damage except to the reputations of war criminals.

Comment Linux OS tuned for Intel hardware on emulated hdwr (Score 2) 13

Are not Cloud VM's isolating and emulating hardware so to what end is running Intel's hardware tuned Linux on MS Azure of any benefit?

Directly on the iron might seem interesting but then I wonder what's the difference compared to say Gentoo.

Microsoft and Intel have lots of money so we get a press release I guess.

Come on. Show of hands. Who thought Assange would really leave the embassy just for Chelsea Manning? He's holding out for that sweet Fox News money once Trump makes him an official member of the politburo. He's blond, so he might be Megyn Kelly's replacement.

We have to vote for a person, not specific positions. While I generally agree with him on visa workers, there are many other things I don't. And he says really obnoxious things.

Also, it's not about "those leftists". Conservatives and GOP have been happy to give businesses what they want to make a profit, including exploitable and cheap visa workers, and in many cases "illegals".

Lefties have been somewhat more likely to complain about visa worker issues than righties over the years in my observation. Overall, Trump is a generally centrist, by the way.

I hope that was intended as a joke, but that stereotype was pretty crass.

You SJWs are always looking for a safe space. Well, buckle up, buttercup, because in two days you liberal snowflakes won't be able to tell us not to use racial stereotypes any more. He won, she lost. Get over it.

claptrap. You don't hire to fill quotas ... You hire the best candidate to do a job.

I've been in the work-world long enough to know that social factors play a large role in actual hiring decisions/preferences. Humans are social animals and tribal by nature/habit.

We like to THINK we are objective, but in practice we are not. We unconsciously prefer people who think like and have a background similar to ourselves. We don't want mental-world-view-mismatches that take us out of our comfort zone.

Once I inadvertently got the results of my own job interview due to a mix-up. The hiring manager stated, "Tablizer [alias] is technically competent and experienced, but has no personality. He is a stick-in-the-mud. We want somebody more interesting." [paraphrased]
