The author cites melanoma, which is overwhelmingly caused by sun exposure and is not tied to ionizing radiation.
UV is ionising radiation!
Maybe that's where Linux will finally have a chance - as a kickass scalable, reliable thin client OS that natively does things the same way as all those servers out there.
The merged product of Android and Chrome OS fits this bill pretty nicely. Chromebooks are already displacing iPads in the educational sector. Can the business sector be far behind? If Google comes out with private-cloud version of its Apps platform, then that provides another nail in Microsoft's coffin. One might argue that we're trading one oligopolist for another, but hasn't that always been the case?
Under the hood without spyware/Cortana/Edge/store, Windows 10 is actually Windows 8.1.
That's actually false. Windows 10 has a streamlined kernel that furthers the work of the original MinWin project beyond what 8.x had implemented (with positive implications both for resource usage and security), and such things as the new Ubuntu environment coming with the Anniversary Update. 10 may have its (grave and potentially pernicious) flaws, but denying that it has some genuinely beneficial advancements beyond 8.x is to ignore reality.
At the same time however, most liberals don't believe in human nature either. Simply look at the loons who believe one's sex is a "choice".
Uh, it's religious conservatives who believe that sexual orientation is a choice, not largely secular social liberals. Doh!
I could go write a paper and it would all be very structured and take months and be incomplete and nobody would read it.
Don't discount yourself so readily. Why not write the paper and publish it on Medium or some other website? Or a blog? Though it may take time to reach critical mass, if your ideas are truly novel and compelling, someone of influence will notice them and propagate them. You have little to lose in offering a structured, well-written position piece.
Do not meddle in the affairs of troff, for it is subtle and quick to anger.
