    Re: How many of you do this?

    I don't use wine, and on the few occasions I had to compile from source in ubuntu, it worked perfectly.

    On Arch, which has a much more intuitive and streamlined compiling process, I've had a 100%...

    Re: Linux is illegal!

    This is why you should only respond with "If you would kindly respect my privacy, thank you." when asked anything about your personal life. Dealing with idiots like that isn't worth it.

    Re: commercial spaceships?

    That's just the initial price for the people who want to be first. They've already got hundreds of people who already paid for a ticket, and they're basically early investors. Also, anyone who spends...
  4. Re: Adobe seems to have fixed the flash installer...

    It's still proprietary software. Not what I'd call "fixed".

    Do not use this restrictive software, and do not support websites that insist on you using it!
  5. Re: What is "Free as in beer" or "Free as in Speech"

    Unfortunately, the English language does not make sufficient difference between the two to make this obvious:

    Free software is free as in freedom/liberty, see the definition of "Free Software"...

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    So it's somehow the FSF's fault that the egotist moron in charge of Linux is too damn arrogant to accept the new and improved GPL?

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    :%s/create/define/g and you've got it down. The Founding Fathers didn't create RL freedom in 1776 either, but they clearly defined it in a way that forever changed the course of human history. Ideas...
  8. Re: One of my favorite advantages over windows

    Software Freedom. GNU doesn't restrict you to a single OS monopoly whose DRM hangs over your head like a tyrannical dictator. Even though the inclusion of the Linux kernel in the GNU operating system...

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    How the hell is it absurd? The new version of the GPL is an upgrade, and protects your Software Freedom better than the obsolete one. The only conclusion I can draw from this is that Linus doesn't...

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    It's just legal defence. As the tactics of those who oppose the very principles of Free Software improve, it's only logical that the definition be altered to prevent them from abusing old loopholes....

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    Note the "usable" part. You can't even run X on it and expect any reliability and stability, damnit.

    And, mind you, I have tried. That alone is more than the majority of the people here could say.

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    I find being branded an "extremist" by the likes of you to be satisfactory, because it reminds me I'm not as apathetic about Software Freedom as you people are.

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    Just because it's the Free-est OS in existence doesn't mean I wouldn't go for a more Free one if it existed and was usable.

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    I believe the poster you were quoting was referring to the fact that Linus refuses to upgrade the Linux kernel to GPLv3, the FSF's new definition of Software Freedom. As such, he can only be...

    Re: Ubuntu GNU/HURD

    Sorry, that analogy is no longer valid. Duke Nukem Forever has (even officially) been cancelled, and anyway, odds are any "work" done on it amounts to a bag of hot air. GNU/HURD, on the other hand,...

    Re: Man I hate the ruddy TM Repository!

    Speak for yourself. The cult of GNU only uses Linux because it's the most stable kernel for the GNU operating system. :D
