Which time zone GMT/UTC or local time zone.
As a Linux/Unix user I expect the time of the HW clock, UTC for me.
A super-injunction is aimed at everybody.
You've forgotten to mention one thing. Everyone in the UK.
Outside of the UK people can write what they want about Ryan Giggs, the clown who thinks he can control the world.
At least an article that isn't an April fools day article.
What's openSUSE's future look like? Since Novell is slowly dying, are we going to see openSUSE fade from being the #2 / #3 distro?
First of all I don't know if Novell is dying. Novell is Acquired by Attachmate Corporation.
Secondly the openSuSE community is very big and is operating on more or less independently from Novell.
Even if Novell would dying I think other companies would by the SuSE part with SLES. As SLES quality is also due to the openSuSE quality I don't think a owner of SLES would not support openSuSE.
I as a openSuSE packages still foresee a bright future for openSUSE and SLES also because the community around openSuSE is growing. And there are great projects within openSuSE like the openSUSE Build Service (Multi distro packaging framework), SUSE Studio (Build a custom distro), etc
Another important thing to realize about EFI is that it also contemplates enabling chipset features that will trap certain OS operations to an EFI-based control system running in System Management Mode. In other words, under EFI, there is no guarantee that the OS owns the platform. Accesses to IDE I/O addresses, or certain memory addresses, can be trapped to EFI code and potentially examined and modified or aborted. Many see this as an effort to build a "DRM BIOS".
I don't see any advantage when it would be encrypted or DRM would be used.
As a garage needs to do tests they'll be able to change values. If you get the keys credentials from a garage one can do the same.
It should just be impossible either change values for certain devices like brakes when the car is running or they should be reset when a diagnostic device is detached.
This new item wouldn't be an issue in most industries.
If an employee of a certain car producer drives to work with the car of the competitor no one wouldn't even be bothered. It's a fact that this happens.
Computers are not intelligent. They only think they are.
