But that's because you got your entire system system backwards. In any sane country most members of the police would newer(Not even once) have people shooting at them in their entire 40 year carrier.

Just for the fun: Try to look up police shootings in Germany or Denmark.

But this all comes back to the insane amounts of weapons in the US

"You'd have to be a real masochist today to chose a Linux desktop over an OSX desktop for a Unix development experience."

Why? Most development tools including gcc end Eclipse runs MUCH better under Linux. I currently run Eclipse under Linux, and it's fast and well behaved, unlike under Mac OS X where it is slow as hell. (When people complain about Eclipse performance, they mostly are complaining about it on Mac OS X)

Which "they" could do such an analys?

The credit card company, only get the total transaction amount and the shop which should get the money.

The shop only get a "Transaction accepted" but they don't get any information about the credit card used. Other then sometimes the last 4 digits, but you can't trace with that.

What is wrong with kde on Fedora?

I am currently running Kde Fedora, with Kde Plasma 5.5.3 (The newest Plasma is 5.5.4, released just a few days ago som I am 0.0.1 from the newest when using standard Fedora).

So for me, Fedora with kde instead of Gnome seems to be the perfect Kde based linux.

They do not require a credit card on file to play, BUT they require you to input a credit card in order to do the initial creation of the first apple id account. (See: Once it's created you can then remove the credit card again.

They do the same thing for sd cards. You need a sd card in order to boot the phone for the first time, but once it's booted you can remove the sd card. And I still don't understand why.

Not really: From their documentation: (

"If you're using the store for the first time with an existing Apple ID, you must provide a payment method. After you create the account, you can change your payment information to None."

So the first time you have to input credit card, which you can then remove again. How that is user friendly is anyone's guess.
