Re: It's not just designers
Yes, have seen that. Users were _very_ fast on the 3270 terminal as they knew the F-keys in their sleep. And the low bandwidth was a good thing as some users were in places of the world with poor connections.

Direct democracy seems to work OK in Switzerland, having lived there I would find it hard to argue that it is a particularly dysfunctional country. But of course they have had a rather long time to practice.
You can argue about its success in Denmark. EU/EEC votes are one thing, but changing the constitution requires parliamentary majority -> referendum with majority _and_ a minimum % of eligible voters being for, followed by a general election and a new parliamentary majority. Last change was in 1953.
Interesting. So to rephrase my understanding, the key combinations that work in OS X generally do not get through to LO if you have an English keyboard, but they do if you have a non-English?
I do have an interest in this as I just could consider buying a US/UK 'book.

I am not quite sure I understand the first problem.
I write English, Danish (æ, ø, å), German (ü, ö, ä) and Portuguese on a Portugues keyboard MacBook Air, and all the accents on the KB as well as the ones reached by "alt" works just the same in LO as outside.
Upvote for that.
I must admit I am puzzled, do anyone actually _like_ receiving dickpics?
As a straight-towards-the-dull male, I would would not know what to think if I received a closeup of my significant other's bits on my phone.
- too Scandi, grown up in the 70es...
If I take the big perspective, I think some spying is necessary. Think the cold war, I think security was improved by having better information about the other side.
And I don't think ip theft is limited to China. My wife's biotech used to worry about the other side of the Pacific, and UK legislation clearly allows for this as well.
- and messages along the lines "Are you sure you want to stop not cancelling this?"
Another nuisance: "The program has Quit. Press OK" when the situation is not at all OK. In Danish we wanted the Button to say "Nå!" (roughly, "Well, right then"
Most of my work is done in browsers, spreadsheet and email. I only use rj45 when we have problems with the property's network. Ports sound ok for my use. But as I travel and at times have to do some work waiting for planes or kids, low weight and volume is appreciated.
Linus had an MacBook Air, right?
Could you please stop that BS about 8GB precluding any serious work? Perhaps _your_ work; my wife and I are using Macs with 8GB, running a business which is the main income for us and 4 employees. That is serious enough to me. /rant
Sounds like a machine worth checking if we change to Linux.
Public IT projects tend to be large, complicated and with all sort of legal requirements well as interfacing with legacy systems. They have a tendency to go over budget anywhere in the World, and as the information is public (and there are politicians seeing advantage making sure it is public) we hear a lot about them; much less about the ones delivered more or less on time and budget.
Large private IT projects interfacing legacy systems etc. (and I have been on some) also go over budget and are delivered late. I was on one that should go live in August - which year was luckily not specified. But in the private sector you can be a bit more discrete if things are not exactly to plan.

I have to agree with you, the Euro will fall apart. It may just take longer than DT expects.
The history of currency unions is interesting, the only successful ones I have heard of is USD (and that took 90 years and a civil war to get working), the one between Belgium and Luxembourg and GBP.
Greece was thrown out of the Latin Currency union because they put too little noble metal in the coins, and the Scandinavian one fell apart with WWI
No, Apple did not invent that much. But they implemented in a way that made other's inventions useful, e.g. dtp and an mp3 player that people would buy, with huge capacity for the time.
And I doubt it would have happened without a visionary behind.
He was also a certified @rsehole, no doubt.
