  6. Re: A French court has ruled that Valve should allow people to re-sell their digital

  7. Re: A French court has ruled that Valve should allow people to re-sell their digital

    It sounds to me as if the court was thinking that it was physical media.

    This opens up a huge door of problems in Europe. Think about people being able to sell Digital Movie Downloads, Music, and...

    I personally like the idea of Snaps. They are supposed to be completely self-contained, and require no additional dependencies.

    A bit of bashing fits the OP.

    I learned an unfortunate lesson on a brand-new Windows 10 laptop.

    [kubuntu] Re: Compositing Crash

    Proprietary 418. What Kubuntu downloads at the time of install.
