Re: free version works for 10 minutes
I call bullshit on that Morten.
Ardour Free Open Source Software. Free as in beer and free as in speach.

I'll upgrade when my distro does. If Ardour disappears from ubuntu over the gtk2 issue I'll miss it, but happy with Audacity.
I dont like opensource software where the build is so difficult you cant excerise your rights.
I do hack at sound software.
Built some of those "missing plugins".
I do that on a Linux PC and if apt install xxx-dev does not worrk I lose interest rapidly.
re: The question is why?
My theory is that they are trying to bypass the check so they can dynamically load changes without paying Microsoft the fees charged to resign driver changes.
I thought at first Microsoft would side with Trend, Trend is paying them money.
The fact that Microsoft has not tells us something about the why.
The point about the CLI is not the cmd/bash you use, its EVERYTHING supports starting sub processes with command name and args and handling the streams and exit code.
_everything_ works like that.
Not just shells, but all languages C, c++, python, perl, awk, everything can start a program using this totally ubiquitous interface.
All build tools make, maven, grunt, npm, jenkins travis, git hooks support this interface.
Powershell API is nonsense, it misses the point entirely.
PowerShell ignores everything that exists and tries to tell you they know better,
"PowerShell is better than CMD.EXE" but it is wrong by definition, its comparing a shell that is able to run every application ever written and something that thought what was cool about the shell was that you typed instead of clicked and could write scripts. That is cool (bit clunky) but that is not the point.
What is cool about the CLI is that EVERYTHING integrates. Well or Badly we can argue about that over a pint, but it is always possible (outside of Microsofts world).
The CLI is the worlds most simple application integration interface and Microsoft still dont understand it.
Looks like they never will.
I replaced my unsmiling professionally taken photo sporting regulation corporate blue shirt, with a custom circular logo that reads
VICTIMS OF ONE DRIVE
Everyone likes it, except the IT bods that are trying to deal with the 100 gb of .m2/repository that got auto uploaded and can only be deleted file by file using the web interface.
I'll post jpegs in all sizes.
The (frankly ridiculous) C:\ D:\ thing made it impossible to install software in the same place. %ProgramFiles% is not reliable enough because installers still ask you on which drive to install.
I imagine all existing package managers define a root.
Windows Update predefines storage requirements on C:\, but other apps cant share a common path and use all disk space.
Its a crazy design flaw really.
Trivial fix. Define C:\ as /, support symlinks across drives, treat / and \ as path separators.
I doubt Microsoft would admit unix was right.
If they did, _all_ package managers would just work.
Building windows containers would be possible with all package managers.
You would not need to boot windows and read env vars or the registry to find an existing file or decide where to install a new one.
I spend so little time in office apps.
Word was replaced by emails and wikis years ago.
I never format and print docs.
Markdown makes the tool I'm using irrelavent.
True there is no competition but if word, powerpoint, excel, and access all died tomorrow I would not be impacted in the slightest.
I'd fire up my browser.
Dev workstations typically have a ton of tools installed that interact. As well as libs, tools have to play together nicely and access the same filesystem. It makes sense to tackle desktop app compatability and lib compatability with the same approach.
Server deployments have different challenges.
Despite theoretically risking a bork of more than one app, package mangement in all the distros I have ever tried works very well.
This tool looks lame to me. It does not look like they understood the problem.
I suspect users would prefer a tool that lets them decide when to
windows update && windows upgrade
Microsoft said it is aware of the issue, and is "working closely with Trend Micro to investigate these claims."
And Microsoft is notably not working with the bloke that found the issue.
Because, Trend pay the tax Microsoft impose on driver writers, they are both interested in finding a way for Trend to save face and keep up the payments.
Yandex. Fully featured apps. Professional. Look slick. They run their own chromiun fork thats always been better looking than chrome. Very similar approach to Goolgle in terms of spyware. I prefer to have the Ruskies spying on me than the Yanks. Its easy to ignore Yandex ads, they are in russian.
I dont need maps to go from the sofa to the fridge but when I next doYandex maps looks good too.
Agreed and its not like nodejs was a flop.
Funny architecture this tho. Node + libuv + v8 components fit nicely.
This has a threaded locking runtime in its guts. Rust guarantees threadsaftey with single writer, but in the real world that means copying a lot or Atomic Ref Counting and locks. Rust's guarantees dont integrate with other languages since its all done it the compiler.
V8 and js are not able to use multiple threads or locks at all afaik. Seems like this will do a lot more copying.
Thus at a time when io_ring becomes available. Seems to me io_ring only makes sense if you dont copy. This thing might be obsolete already if it has to copy to perform io.
What makes you say they are capable of hiding from light and radar given we see them on youtube and are being tracked.
All These video say is that there are things out there traveling at hyper-sonic speeds, & that are not shaped like conventional aircraft (Not surprising given the speed they are traveling at)
The fact that the US releases the footage shows that they did not make them and don't care if the truth gets out there, or that they did, and don't think knowledge of them affects their usefulness. Perhaps, like nuclear weapons, the existence of them is a threat.
There also exists more groups on the planet with engine manufacturing capability than the US government. There are some pretty crazy rich Russians out there. Uncle Sam might be happy for their tech to be known about.
"At which point I was done with *that*."
Not sure I follow? Why does proving to yourself that such trails exist, prove that Aurora does not cause them? Surely this just proves that they are a real world phenomena. Making in more likely that Aurora could produce them, since they are not unique to Aurora.
Of couse Mac OS contains loads of free software.
My perception of Mac buyers is that they dont care too much if its foss or not, as long as Apple provide the spit and polish.
For Linux users it is important that it is free (as in speach)
For Windows users it seems it is important that that either someone paid for it or someone stole it.
I find documentation is without fail better in Open Source projects.
Provided you can read code.
Many os projects follow gnu doc approach for text.
E.g. readme install authors etc. This approach is efficient for the document writer and effective for the reader. A quick entrypoint to the code is usually better that some fat computer manual you are not going to read.
A port to QT for inkscape makes no sense to me. Inkscape is a graphics app itself. Not something that makes heavy use of a prebuilt ui toolkit.
I'm a fan of QT, in its place. Its almost its own language, as well as a ui toolkit. It would be a rewrite.
I see no benefit in porting an app that is 16 years stable.
