So it's easy for you to be smug and treat your vote like the bauble you think it is, because to you it is insignificant. You're set no matter what.
Nope. Never did. Even the earliest system I used (UNIX v6) didn't do that.
You had to do it with SunOS, up until... 4.1.4? Maybe 4.1.3_u1? Certainly on my 4.1.1 system.
People who buy cars.
People keep buying Toyotas, so why would you expect them to know anything?
Unix managed to evolve beyond this though.
Yes, it evolved to the point where we no longer had to allocate space for our main memory in the paging file. But Unix systems still include paging by default, even though it is stupid when RAM is cheap. It's goddamned pointless because if a process runs away and eats all the RAM I want it killed, not swapping.
I am not using any paging space on Windows or Unix. My Windows 7 system has 16GB and my Ubuntu system has 8GB, and there's no need for paging thankfully. This isn't even a lot of RAM any more, it's a pittance.
Boy, can you imagine one of these springing a leak?
And frankly, a $100 sale stereo and a $500 sale 50" TV is still better than going to the movie theater and blowing a shitpot of money for a shit experience.

The laundry list of what you can and can't do with Windows 10 is so noxious and Windows control so pervasive, someone with a new Windows 10 installation needs to effectively root the machine. Some URLs (MS telemetry) cannot be blocked by firewall. The administrator/user will not have access to the hosts file. (Boot under Linux and edit hosts file? Maybe or maybe not.) The owner/administrator needs a further level of root privilege (or just REAL root status in the first place) to prevent MS and its corporate industry partners from setting non-modifiable advertising and and hosts.ini to default settings via hardware-- if Intel were on board even running Linux could be subject to mandatory privileges blocking no one could avoid. We have to realize what is happening- MS is turning into Verizon and intel PCs are locked-down Verizon phones. Do we want to have to root each new PC we set up, or go en masse to Apple? That may be how it is lining up. Is there anything at all we can do? At this point with the Win10 handwriting on the wall I see nothing but converting to Linux or Apple as a group. MS is apparently getting ready to sign its own death warrant. We need to get really angry and DO something? (It's Apple with VMs for me.)
One generally uses a long, complex password for their password vault (which is fine, since you only have to remember the one password).
No. One does not. Because one needs to repeatedly enter that password in everytime one access anything, from as menial as slashdot to as important as one's bank.
Plus one needs to be able to enter it on a smartphone too; again... repeatedly.
Remembering a long complex password is easy. Repeatedly entering it over and over and over again is painful. So the practical length of most people's vault key is relatively short.
So while my bank password is long and complex and random, and i don't even know what it is; my vault password is shorter and easier for me to remember and use.
So my bank account and so forth is secure from bruteforce attacks directly on it, as well as immunity from password re-using since each is random.
My vault is relatively secure, you'd need to get a hold of it from me; and the vault password is relatively secure, but its not a 200 character pass phrase... simply because I'd go mental entering something like that in over and over again... or on a smartphone.
I've actually mitigated it a little bit as I use different vault files for different passwords, so I've actually got a couple vaults; and the vault the bank account is in is harder than the junk account vault, but while its better its still not ideal.
When you engage autopilot, you aren't driving. You aren't actively controlling any part of the car, you are just sitting there watching. YOU are the extra eye.
and then they have to go and add a full Ubuntu kernel as a subsystem.
There's no Ubuntu kernel there. It's the other way around - the kernel is still NT, with a Linux syscall emulation layer. The userland is full Ubuntu sans the kernel.
All in all, very similar to FreeBSD Linux emulation that has been around for a while in principle, if not in low-level architecture.
The New York Times isn't a governmental agency or a Presidential candidate.
When they are a full-time propaganda machine FOR a presidential candidate, why do they deserve distinct protection?
Can someone please explain to me how you are so stupid as to think any of his comments are serious?
Going to be funny watch Trump win and people like you utterly uncomprehending why.
Retirement means that when someone says "Have a nice day", you actually have a shot at it.
