    Re: Objection to post removal

    No less fair than leaving any post in a thread that is locked; precluding any possibility of rebuttal to those posts. If a moderator is to expend the time and effort of removing posts in a thread...

    Objection to post removal

    I wish to object to the removal of this post (only visible to staff) in the Apple Pulls VLC from the App Store thread.

    I fail to see anything objectionable in the following explanation and would...
  4. Re: Apple Removes VLC from App Store

  8. Re: Change GPL forcing Companies to put Linux on Packaging

    Your emphatic "NO" is hardly absolute. Calling it GNU/Linux may indeed "help out the cause" if "the cause" happens to be something other than a popularity contest.

  9. Re: When Linux developers will create single standard

    My favorite package format is Slackware's .tgz. If I had to choose between .deb and .rpm, I would go with .deb because the package contents are readily accessible using standard Unix utilities, as...

    Re: What are the advantages of lisp-2?

    This example is not really indicative of the namespace issue, but does raise the issue of Scheme's lack of distinction between functions and the symbols to which they are bound. At least I think...

    Re: ubuntu developer on reddit

    Fair enough. I shall withdraw my snarkiness. smspillaz (if I am making the connection correctly) has done an admirable job of discussing things here. To Ubuntu's cost, such forum participation by...

    Re: pkg-config and automake

    I have only recently investigated using Autotools for creating libraries (as opposed to programs), so the following should be taken tentatively.

    Re: Call by value is not working properly

    Arrays are always passed by reference in C. This is because at compile time, the size of an array may not be known (whereas the size of structs, floats, ints, etc are fixed).

    Re: simple bash idiocy
