Microsoft had the chance to make a decent phone with Windows Phone 6.1, but they nlew it because they had a shitty api and a bad build system for the OS creating headache for many vendors.
Five years ago, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to three astronomers for their discovery that the universe is expanding at an accelerating pace. This led to the widespread acceptance of the idea that the universe is dominated by a mysterious substance named 'dark energy' that drives this accelerating expansion. Now, a team of scientists has cast doubt on this standard cosmological concept. The evidence for acceleration may be flimsier than previously thought, they say, with the data being consistent with a constant rate of expansion.
If correct, this may turn cosmology on its ear yet again. Perhaps we don't need anything as exotic as dark energy to explain the universe's expansion, after all.
It applies to drones, but a balloon on a string is not a drone.
There will always be a way around rules like that.
And considering that the cops here in Sweden are way too busy with other stuff this would be low on the list as long as it's not used to create child porn.

I recompiled to the latest kernel yesterday and I didn't have any problems with UEFI, so I'm not sure what you are talking about.
And even the 2.4 kernel.
The advantage with the Lunux kernel over alternatives is greater than the disadvantages, so Linux will continue. Porting all stuff to other cores like drivers etc. is going to introduce new bugs.
It depends on if your machine is open to the internet or not. And if you have users on your machine that you don't want to give root permissions.
I upgraded to 4.8 yesterday due to the Dirty COW bug.
Too many jokes about dirty cows are expected.
Media isn't consolidating - it's monopolizing. First they grow to a few big corporations then they specialize in a certain field of media and customers will have no choice.
