Trump's immigration reform is not "comprehensive". Whatever you think of the migrant workers in the south, the US immigration system is really broken in many other ways on many other issues. Conservative republicans are so worried about workers from Mexico that they block all other attempts at immigration reform, this is no exception. The H1-B stuff is a undeveloped tag-on to attract tech voters and it's the only non-mexican border reform proposed.
Although Alan Cox probably has something to say about SSDs, I don't think anyone bothered to contact him for this article.
The environmental, material, and human costs that went into making and then destroying 2000 of these things matters too. What a waste!
There are problems with Gnome and GTK+, but what surprises me is that KDE and QT have managed to remain consistently, in the words of RMS, butt-ugly throughout the years. It's like a requirement for each new release to be at least as ugly as the last one. Even with plasma and fancy 3D effects, still that same ugly-mugly, kinda-boxy, badly spaced, wierdly rendered fonts, dumb controls, QT look. My love for gnome has dissipated markedly in the last few years with the gnome 3 disaster, but it is hard to imaging replacing it with, ugh, butt-ugly kde.
