Comment Re:Wait who's computer is it again? (Score 1) 162

I don't have experience with OpenBSD and NetBSD, but for FreeBSD, dual-booting with Linux should be relatively straightforward.

I guess your issue is a mismatch between BIOS/MBR and EFI/GPT partitions tables. In "guided" partitioning, FreeBSD uses GPT exclusively. If you had installed Linux first on a MBR, it won't work and you have to go in manual partitioning. You only need a single partition (FreeBSD calls them slices), and then you can sub-partition that slice (typically for a simple setup, a few GB in /, whatever you want as swap, and the remaining space in /usr, /home being a symlink to /usr/home)

If you install FreeBSD first, Linux should gladly accept GPT.

If, for some reason, you use MBR but your disk once contained a GPT, the FreeBSD installer can get confused by a secondary GPT at the end of the disk (at least it was in FreeBSD ... 9, IIRC)

You might also want to modify your BIOS settings and choose (U)EFI boot method instead of BIOS/Legacy (if available).

I'm impressed: you managed to not mention Ü... a single time in this summary. A....b isn't mentioned either, but this is expected. At least, all "related links" are about Ü... .
I think that company deserves its own icon, just as "the real-life Tony Stark". After all, Bitcoin has its own.

250 physicians responding to an informal internet survey

Only 2.7% responded that they were "just a political attack;

only 2.7% that there had been "too much emphasis."

6/250 corresponds to 2,4%
7/250 corresponds to 2,8%
Are the opinions even real, or are the results doctored ?

informal internet survey

On the Slashdot polls of old, there was a mention that if you were taking the results seriously you were crazy. Applies just as well here.

Yes, but would the EU have done this to one of their own companies?

Did you check?

Obviously not.

Obviously not.

Previous record was against EDF (French utility company).
FIAT (Italian automobile manufacturer) also had to pay back taxes because of that European rule.

If you're anywhere within 100 miles of a US border, the constitution doesn't apply

I think my Canadian relatives, almost all of whom are within 100 miles of a US border may take serious exception to that.

Your Canadian relatives expected the US constitution to apply to them ? :)

and any US customs agent can do anything they want to you, at any time, for whatever reason.

As long as the Canadian constitution applies to US customs agents on Canadian soil, your Canadian relatives should be fine.
