100 "people" will decide the future of the web
For people read, NSA, FBI, CIA, Hollywood etc...
Life in prison?
You mean like your own bed, free meals, exercise courtyard etc... in order to detain you?
Probably similar to working as a programmer at Google then.
The cloud = someone elses computer...
Re: alone at last!
Don't you fucking forget that the Grey Beards have got Linux to the point where its usable by the masses. If you want binary logs and a single point of failure (and compromise) then enjoy your future - while it lasts. Just don't expect a warm welcome when you return to the fold...
AFAIK it's in danger of being dropped.
Re: Tried it - Hate it.
Sid was truly good before systemd. I may be forced back to Wheezy while I decide what my future is with Debian, if any.
Thanks for that.
Yes I'm testing Slackware too at the minute but I believe they are currently sitting on the fence regarding this. The thing is that if systemd gets too invasive (which it already is) then core services and apps may require more effort than what its worth to run as non-systemd versions.
From what I know, the only non-systemd committed distros (at this moment in time) are Slackware, Gentoo, Crux and Alpine Linux. I think out of those I would go with Alpine Linux, a distro which is very much underrated IMHO.
Well i thought it was April 1st when I heard Gimp was getting systemd integration, this is just one big fucking piss take IMHO.
You have Mr Pottyring saying systemd is perfect and that any faults are with downstream implementation. Well I spent several days wondering why the fuck my Cups server had broken in Debian Sid, only to find out that systemd requires both IPv4 and 6 to be active else Cups will not work - I had disabled IPv6 due to previous issues. I would expect Cups not to work if both stacks were non-functional.
Now I have a Samba server on my main desktop that hangs at shutdown due to fact that systemd appears to be killing Samba before it dismounts the networked shares properly - no sane fix so far from what I see.
Yes I know Debian Sid is "unstable" but it was rock solid before this systemd shit came along. My impression of Sid and Debian itself are now one of turmoil and I can only hope that Debian reverses its original decision and boots systemd into touch also, I hope they seriously have a look at their leaders because they have allowed this mess to happen.
If Debian stay with systemd then I will go elsewhere. I have already started playing with FreeBSD and FreeNAS along with OpenBSD too as I'm quite familiar with these systems anyway and their leaderships are not prone to follow like sheep at a whim.
Personally I wouldn't want a Debian fork but if that's what it takes then so be it but the Linux ecosystem is already too fragmented in my opinion. If there was a fork then sure I'd look into it but whats really needed is a weed out of the Debian leaders that have got us to this point, they are setting the distro up for its potential downfall.
Wonder how many politicians have rude selfies that might be waiting to be exposed on the net?
I guess a law like this may help them sleep easier at night...
I can see it happening.
Current situation, RedHat is trying to dominate the Linux ecosystem via systemd, it eventually succeeds and most distros are no better than Redhat flavors. Suddenly Redhat announces that MS will be buying them...
The work is based in our Clerkenwell offices. Be aware that you'll be selecting and maintaining your own office hardware: if you need tech support to use a computer and keep it functional this is not the job for you.
So you actually need to know something about how computers operate. How novel...
TOR - check
Tails - check
Linux Journal - check
I must be on the NSA wanted list.
I also use OpenBSD - guess I'm on the NSA terrorist list too...
You sure it wasn't an whorphanage they visited?
But did England send a world cup winning football team to the world cup?
I must have missed something...
Re: Simply wonderful
Yes it is wonderful but I guess someone is now creating an Android app that mimics a rotary dialler.
Must get my Raspberry Pi out again...
The price is right
Gotta love price plunges/wars. One will go too low and fail sooner or later.
I'll just sit back with my beer and wait for the fallout.
Re: Please predict for me:
I predict its going to be cloudy with a chance of meatballs.
And no doubt I'll be just as accurate as the climate scammers.
What was the MS marketing spiel several years ago.

Ah SCCM, isn't it that management thing that let's you reimage your workstations overnight along with your servers including the SCCM server itself?

Pity your parents never found Linux in time...
Just install Linux and stop fucking around...
Bring back KITT. Serveral red LED's on the front and a nice compact super computer inside.
So much simpler than this graphical crap.
Wonder if his chopper is now missing a bit off the end?
I seem to remember quite a few similarities between the two on a sunny day up north.
Was it Obama's wind that grounded this?
WTF - is it April 1st again?

An article about computing, software and Linus. OMG where was RMS in this?
Is the GPL dead?
Is the CIA after Snowden's snatch now?
It's America dear, the country that boast NFL World Champions where the game is only for US based teams in the first place. The country that can be a "world economic power" when they are 20 or 30 trillion dollars in debt.
I could go on but whats the bloody point....
Fuck them all
If I was Alex I'd take them to the Human Rights Commission. Imprisoned and basically deported for releasing a steaming hot turd to the media...

Re: Nice Traffic System You've Got Here...
The Knowledge is just that, GPS is a "i think this is the correct way" or, "turn left into the Thames" system.
I guess you also want to be served a Latte on your taxi rides in the future too.
Why not bro, Kimmy . com will no doubt join you when ya do...
So the power companies have finally got electricity into Hawera at last then...
Re: Those poor Aussies
"I've been on UFB (NZ Fibre) in Christchurch for 6 months now (recently changed to an uncapped 100/50 plan) and I have to say you're entirely wrong about Netflix. I regularly stream HD content (as do my wife and daughter, often all simultaneously) and the international bandwidth isn't ever an issue."
So you're one of those 10% of the population that can actually get it at the moment. Good for you, when we get to a customer usage rate of 70% come back here and let us know how good your experience still is.
I hope Telecom have done their homework as the data usage is going to explode exponentially. Remember several years ago when they released that unlimited ADSL plan which brought the broadband network to its knees? My connection went from 5mbps down to dial-up speed. After a few days of that shit, Telecom no longer had me as a customer.
Vlad im not there
Did Vlad say that porn was a CIA plot?

Well Paris is blonde and that's not really surprising to be honest.
Re: It looks suspiciously like an AE-35 unit
HAL: Well, I don't think there is any question about it. It can only be attributable to human error. This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to human error.
Re: Three questions
"what do I win?"
Nothing, but two out of three isn't bad.
The answer to (c) is, yes if you install the classic-menu-indicator ppa.
Well we all know that if COBOL goes wrong it usually all turns to BOLOC's.
