Jason Levine is exactly right. A second critical change needed is to eliminate the Berne Convention from the US. That copyright feature forces copyright on everything you jot down. Whether you want copyright or not. Copyright should be, again, something one requests through specific action (such as writing it in the work) rather than being automatic.

Comment Dell XPS 13 Ubuntu (Score 1) 435

Had a Mac Air, but replaced with Dell XPS 13 developer edition with Linux (Ubuntu) using the Gnome Flashback Metacity, not the default Unity at login. Yes, Dell sells it with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed. Long battery life, light weight, avoid the Apple bugs and misfeatures.

Costs include the transit time. As others have noted, public transit is much slower than driving in most cases. I commuted via rail near San Francisco for years (caltrain) and considered it ok. Not smelly, not too crowded except on a MLB night. Still, useless now to take transit as wife simply is no longer able to walk far enough to make use of the limited times and access.
