    Re: What can Windows do that Linux can't?

    Well, it can show a GUI for starters. Linux cannot do that - it needs a window manager such as Gnome, since Linux is the kernel - the "core" of the OS, not *THE* OS.

    Poll: Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    I use the DVD as a coaster :p
  3. Re: Thread was locked - maybe a slight over-reaction?

    I'm sorry - I felt annoyed and was in not such a good mood for other reasons. Thank you for opening it again :)
  4. Thread was locked - maybe a slight over-reaction?

    Hey guys :)

    Whilst I was absent, a VERY thought-provoking thread which I started, was "locked" because a couple of people had a **mild** to-and-fro disagreement about the finer points of why...

    Re: Could Ubuntu save RIM?

    If Apple bought BlackBerry, all we'd have is... a crumble. :p

    Okay.

    Again:

    Please see my previous post. Thread abandoned as a wasteful idea.

    Please see my previous post. Thread abandoned as a wasteful idea.

    [edit]: Extra wasteful due to the sheer amount of naive denial, or possible blindness to what happens on "Da Cloud". Regardless, a...
  9. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    You're off at a different tangent entirely. Let's just forget it - I have to work, and this is getting unproductive and pointless now. I asked admin to close this thread ages ago - I hope it just...
  10. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    Wow, I am truly pleased! Someone who isn't in denial! :D

    Yes, folks - I am not saying facebook are the "big, evil, terrible monster" - but they ARE liars, they ARE manipulative, and they ARE NOT...
  11. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    I hope this doesn't appear rude to you, but let me spell out what should be obvious to all but the totally naive:

    Companies LIE - it's the rule, sadly, not the exception. For every one thing they...
  12. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    You only know what you know, and you don't know what you don't know, obviously. If someone is worthy of being trusted, they have earned it. You know VERY WELL what I mean - please - do not pretend...
  13. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    Fair comment - you've missed the point though - not everyone KNOWS - they are naive - people are being exploited - dress it up however you like, it still happens.

    Re: Could Ubuntu save RIM?

    Removed comments that do not further this discussion, and yes - it was totally off-topic. No point speaking one's mind, when it is denied outright - I refuse to waste my time on such futile pursuits.

    Re: Could Ubuntu save RIM?

    Ubuntu spies on its' users - fact. There's no getting around that, or getting around the appalling "Unity" rubbish.
  17. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    That's all people seem to care about; convenience over freedom. Suckers are everywhere, and most people *know* that facebook can exploit them, yet, do NOTHING about it. Never ONCE have I responded to...
  18. Re: Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    Uhm, no - the "whole point" of Facebook, originally, was for people to connect with old friends and socialise. I'd rather I pay 10 a year and DO NOT get abused, than be abused and spammed.

    Yes, I...
  19. Do you think facebook is spying on people? (not rhetorical)

    Do you consider facebook to blatantly exploit and abuse the data people upload to it, under the convenient "everyone uses it" line?

    I do. I'm not here trolling - I am asking for details if any are...
