enough of the "our" sir.
Re: Why would a sane person buy one?

You were asked for alternatives and gave none. Maybe you know of some that others don't ? If you put some down here then, if they really are better, then that would lead to some people on here leaving Skype ... which is what you apparently want. I, for one, would be interested in alternatives, on Linux, and on hearing of others experiences with them. Tried Ekigaphone ages ago and wasn't impressed at all.
Of course if you just don't give any, then you're a troll.
Re: Forcing people to suffer
If someone comes out with something lacking any merit at all on a public forum/mailingList then they are accepting that their ideas may be assessed and possibly ridiculed if meriting it. In the same way someone comes on some forum and doesn't leave their real name just hiding behind the AC nonsense. The ideas proposed by the RedHat employee lacked any merit at all (IMHO), and needed to be categorised as such. Linus did that, whilst suggesting that they could be kept in user space. Suggest you look up bullying in the dictionary before making such utterings
Re: $100k for a glass door?
it has rounded corners. Come on, that has to cost
People still ashamed to log in under a name?
Is that a person or a place? is it close to LaLa Land?
Re: That doesn't look too friendly.
If you actually read the comments of that link you would see that it is not something that would touch 99.9% of users, and to get affected by it you'd have to be incredibly stupid. Not on a par with the standard Windows vulns
"The first significant update to the license since the previous version"
Well the next update after the previous update always is the first significant update since the previous.
Re: I want to know what's going on with them
From my usage as well all is perfectly fine. Must only be El Reg that has this "problem" ...
Re: Do we have any intelligent politicians?
... or go to Novatech (or similar) and get a PC with no O/S and pay £90 less for the privilege.
Re: But wait
He's not Loverock Davidson! He's Billy Fuckwit. The prize is mine
Posting as an AC because you're ashamed of your statement. There are many many things on BitTorrent that are not "stolen". Back under your bridge troll
Re: Apple Schmapple
Just get a SANSA Clip (at a fraction of the price) and its as easy as drag+drop files. And then with the money you've saved you can go and buy something else worthwhile.
Re: Just because you disagree with the verdict, doesn't make the verdict wrong!
Is that why you're posting as AC? Don't want people to think/know you're a fanboi?
Too many tweets ...
... makes a twat, or so somebody said. Or maybe that should be "too many twitter followers makes a twat"
Re: Switching to Java 6 to Java 7 has nothing to do with language
Java7 introduces some changes in bytecode, and this can mean that things that functioned with JRE1.6 don't with 1.7. Obviously there is some argument you can pass to the JVM that means it treats the bytecode like in 1.6. But third party bytecode tools are still being updated to use this 1.7 bytecode, and it will take some time before all are upgraded.
Re: nothing is for free
Was BIGBOOBS patented, and that's what the protection money is about?
You would need your eyes testing ...
... if you go to McDonalds. How could you mistake it for somewhere where you can eat food?
Re: "Its a bug"
Errm, nobody "gave" permission to have their email addresses changed in the first place (on FaceFsck) and so by conclusion they didn't give permission to have those email addresses of contacts changed on some sync. But then you're obviously so embarrassed by your statement that you had to make it anonymous. Says it all.
Re: Anonymous posting
Is that why you posted this as AC ? Didn't want everyone to see what a stupid attitude you have?
What about the previous list(s)
... that have been slipping and slipping ? Willowcroft for example, originally planned for end Dec 2011, then slipped to start March 2012, then slipped to end March 2012, and today has slipped further to end June 2012. BT's "exchanges ready for 'infinity'" has had the exchange as "ready" since end of 2011, just that nobody can have it.
is also down and has been for some time. "Unbreakable Oracle" ? :-P
TCKs are not available
Even for open source projects written by individuals. There is supposed to be a way you can request it to validate an open source implementation you are writing (if you are an individual). This worked with SUN, but no longer works with Oracle. i.e we could get the JPA1 TCK to validate compliance (with SUN), but cannot get the JPA2 TCK (with Oracle). This is down to Oracle's lack of respect for procedures and the fact that the JCP say you have to provide a TCK to implementors when individuals when they fill in your request paperwork. They either don't reply or ask you to fill it in, and then when you have done it just goes quiet.
