    Re: White House Linux Migration Petition

    Nobody would like to see Ubuntu or GNU/Linux be "forced" upon the masses - forcing would only serve to replace one tyrant (Microsoft) by another (us, in that event).

    Re: White House Linux Migration Petition

    Yes. In Ubuntu Land, this war goes by the name of Bug #1. I think it is very much real.

    Also, I believe there is an organization by the name of FSF, which strives towards this goal every day. In...

    I think accepting that such a petition is not useful is accepting defeat - we might as well give up and forget about Bug #1 and the like. After all, there were petitions against SOPA and PIPA which...

  10. [SOLVED] Re: 200 line kernel patch (cgroup_patch) on 12.04?

    Hmmm... That is weird. In particular, take a look at

    in which there is a chronological slide that states the patch was posted to 2.6.38-rc7. There is...
