Comment Re:It better not be. (Score 1) 515

I moved to Mint/Cinnamon after the terrible Kubuntu KDE rollout of the recent "kde new version". Too many basic bugs - more of an alpha drop. Also KDE doesn't support basic features like passing in geometry - I've had that bug open in KDE for a number of years. So after having used KDE/Kubuntu for 5+ years I made the switch to Mint/Cinnamon (and Mate on one underpowered machine) and haven't looked back.

Been laid off twice.

First time was early in my career - 1/3 of the company got laid off. A couple of days before management had said "we're all ok, keep working!"
Second time was many years later - big company that had offices all over the world closed our small engineering office. To get our severance package we all had to stay for the two weeks to train the people they flew in from the China office that were taking over our projects.

Automated trucking might have prevented that. Rather than the driver being an isolated unit (or in a perfect world listening to some radio station with local traffic) the automated truck can be in communication with other automated trucks and regional traffic control systems. With some subsystem paying 100% attention to it.
