its hilarious the way they still try to make out that linux is some sort of "windows killer".

they're just marketing to the people who are still incredibly bitter over arguments from the 90s involving words like "wintel" and "cisc"

does anyone actually run unix multiuser anymore?

our ERP software runs on a Linux system. a couple hundred people or so typically access it by firing up Putty and SSHing into the Linux system.

of course linus uses g+, probably the first person i've ever seen actually use it.

a few work buddies at lastjob were big on g+. i think they mostly just use it to share memes though.

ibm vs oracle corporate legal fight is going to be like two enraged hippos

if i was a lawyer for ibm i think i'd be tempted to call a face-to-face meeting early on and say "look, guys. we all know we're going to spend a decade accomplishing nothing here. you guys want to just meet up for drinks every month and have our interns print a few reams of bullshit a day to make it look like we're working? we're gonna get about as much done that way."


if i was a lawyer for oracle i figure larry ellison would be calling me every two hours demanding an update.

ehhh itís more of a maintenance mode. iseries and z/os are actively developed, and z has a posix compliant environment tho

but none of those are desktop oses, even aix

is it iseries or z/os that will still run old system/360 programs that were written when we were still landing people on the moon?

nasa technically used the system/4π, a system/360 derivative architecture specifically for defense / avionics. (it would be a funny product name if it wasn't countless millions of taxpayer dollars wasted)

4/pi's debut with NASA was aboard Skylab. the computer complex at Houston was driven by a pair of System/360s during the Apollo missions. IBM did the onboard computers for Gemini but not for the Apollo spacecraft

System 4/pi was also an IBM product, and saw far more use in fighter jets.

pro tip: you can do useful things on your computer without stealing someone else's work

those os x devs at apple are gonna get paid the same amount regardless. nobody's going hungry.

apple's not going to lower the price on other products because a few thousand people decide to pay for a copy of mac os x. the only benefits to doing so are that some stockholders get a few extra pennies, and participating in a collective belief in the rule of law.


except, oops, the rule of law is already dead in america. there's no accountability. no one trusts that the law is or will be applied evenly or fairly. why is the Apple Computer corporation deserving of our respect?

also, last i heard, the license terms of os x prohibit you from running it on non-apple hardware anyway, so if they already won't "let" you do what you will with the code you've paid for and you're already planning to violate the terms of the license, why in gently caress should you pay for it?

The only thing that's more insane to compile is freetype with harfbuzz support, where you have to compile freetype without harfbuzz support, then harfbuzz, then recompile freetype with harfbuzz support, because freetype is a build dependency of harfbuzz. :suicide:

didnt hans reiser also defend himself in court despite all advice to the contrary

not quite, he had a defense attorney, but he overrode his attorney and insisted on taking the stand to speak in his own defense


if i remember right he actually had a pretty good chance at getting away with it, the case leaned very hard on circumstantial evidence and his attorney had done a decent job of planting enough doubt in the jury's mind as to whether or not it was him.

then he took the stand and, between his acerbic personality and the expertise of a prosecutor in interrogation, thoroughly convinced the jury that he was a guilty rear end in a top hat
