You should get the new Sony Xperia X with Sailfish then, butter smooth. And I'm still amazed to see regular updates arriving, even for the older models. That's something the competition just can't equal.

Have been using Vivaldi for a few months now. It's very fast and it has never crashed on me the last 3 beta releases. I really enjoy the UI color following the color scheme of the visited site!
F11/Fullscreen - from here I cannot seem to reach the menu or tabs
Save Open Tabs as Session - This includes all tabs from all windows in a session. I'd rather see this implemented as saving all tabs in a single window.
"don't forget that once upon a time IE was the great innovator of the web. For example, IE gave the world Ajax, the ability to refresh certain parts of the page without reloading the whole thing. Without that contribution, the web as we know it would simply not exist."
I just love this thinly veiled sarcasm :)
'''If some people don't like what NSA is doing, Ellison argued, the trick is to vote the spying programs away. "The great thing is that we live in a democracy. If we don't like what NSA is doing, we can just get rid of the government and put in a different government," he said.'''
He is.. insane
Yes that was awesome!
MULTI KILL.. ULTRA KILL.. MONSTER KILL... UNSTOPPABLE :)
Some time ago I've been playing Xonotic which I find quite similar in feel to UT. But I sorely miss the rich selection in commands and taunts UT had. Remember "My house!", "anyone else want some?", "And stay down!", "see ya", "Medic!" ??
After all the problems I had with the crappy USB host driver (crashes, even when only using ethernet), the BCM2835's half-assed USB hardware host implementation needing software handling of microframe interrupts, eating away at the already limited CPU power, and the low quality of the on-board audio DAC (effectively 10 bits, with regular clicks every second or so) I gave up on the RaspPi for my purposes.
I was already eyeballing the BeagleBone, but was held back by its price. Now this one comes along, I couldn't be happier!
This is only negative from a abstraction PoV. The ad-hoc mix&mash of electrical signals and peripherals to the SoC is what makes your router cheap.
You confuse purpose built software for general purpose full blown OS distributions.
.. when I decided to buy a TV, I went into a shop and decided on a certain brand and model range.
I asked the guy what the difference was between the various models in that range, since they looked the same, but had a quite steep price difference. He answered that it was the software. Without hesitation I settled on the cheapest model.
Since then XBMC has only improved, my phone has become quite a fancy remote control and with a few keystrokes I can switch to a full PC desktop w. browser for those few sources that are not accessible through the media center.
Extra bonus points: when I get a phonecall it mutes the music or pauses the video. awesome!
Judging from the way the contracting world works, I'm not surprised.
With few exceptions, all these contracting bureaus / 'headhunters' do is count the technical terms on your CV and match them against the terms on the function requirements. The highest number wins, regardless of actual competence (which is of course harder to measure, but hey, that should be their job)
So guy #1 with 2 years experience in framework A wins over girl #2 with 5 years experiene in similar frameworks B, C, D and E...
I like and use KDE, but the defaults you get on a fresh desktop are pretty strange. Trippy, for sure.
I mean, a blue shiny aura around windows, with a dull grey desktop and application look, that's just plain ugly. It's changeable though, once you find out where. Also, some KDE applications have very strange initial sizes, both the application window itself and the internal layout.
There's only one chance to make a first impression, and currently KDE fails, needlessly.
For me personally the N9 is far ahead of the competition, and for my next phone I will most likely go with Jolla or Tizen if it stays close to what Harmattan/N9 offers right now. With shelving Qt, Nokia threw away one of the best platforms that had a common platform for both smartphones and featurephones, which could have benefitted hugely from a trickle-down effect. Besides, those who dabbled with Qt/QML realize that it offers what HTML5 promises, but doesn't deliver.
And, who cares about millions of apps if most is substandard anyway. The iOS6 maps app debacle is just one example. Just compare that to what the N9 gives you for free, with lifetime updates, and no sucking sound emanating from your wallet. And not to mention walled gardens and obsessive corporate control. And on the other side of the fence, the android fans seem to be more focused on # of cores and clock ticks, like that matters. Or is it trendy to be mining bitcoins on the phone nowadays and in the process scorch the family jewels?
