  • Quote: The symbolism of the jackboot and bayonet is inherently so powerful they need little explanation. This cartoon represents the efforts of governmental authorities in Poland to crush the Solidarity labor movement. In December 1981, the eco…
  • The quote from Avie is quite vauge and without much context. Minor updates have already slowed down, then there are the software that is part of Mac OS X and updated (Safari, iApps etc). I'll believe it if Apple either annonces it has abandoned t…
  • I am intrigued by your ideas and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
  • Quote: Originally posted by BuonRotto Well, the Finder will likely never be as fast as Explorer because Explorer is launched in kernel space, and the Finder is treated on par with any other app. That means you walk on eggshells with Explorer bec…

  • Quote: Originally posted by torifile I've decided the single worst thing about OS X for me is the damn finder. Agreed 100%. The thing that pisses me off most is iDisk support. Using my iDisk in KDE on Linux is fantastic, it's like a slightly s…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Paul they say that it is legal, but don't explain how... plus they say you can get a free "mp3 player" (notice they don't say iPod) out of it... but don't say how... They actually say desktop MP3 and movie player.…
  • Quote: Originally posted by \\/\\/ickes I would suggest that you take a look at VectorLinux or Yoper. VectorLinux is Slackware based (and package compatible) and it sets up a nice desktop. Yoper is optimized for newer hardware and uses RedHat's K…
  • Quote: Originally posted by SonOfSylvanus OMFG. Is this serious? Fear of declining national-racial stock. Welcome back 19th century. First, this is partly about the perceived disadvantage in becoming a parent. The idea is that new parents are…
  • Quote: Originally posted by soulcrusher Linux is nice to have around, but I don't take it seriously. That is to your detriment. While there are not many reasons to run Linux over Mac OS X, think about all the PC users out there. The alternati…
  • Oh Jebus yourself. Companies shouldn't be able to make laws, whenever market failure occurs those "laws" made by companies are just like when democracy breaks down: you get f'd in the a. Barto
  • I agree as far as hotmail goes. Plently of other services to choose from, and g-mail will certainly rock the boat when it is publicly available. I'm saying this is totally different to iTMS, which I think Eugene was wrong to bring up. Almost all …
  • Don't bring iTMS into this. iTMS is essentially an online record store. It is not right for Apple, regardless of legality, to dictate to people what THEY do with THEIR data. Up until iTunes 4.5 I was all for iTMS. Then I witnessed Apple, seemingl…
  • segovius, that's all well and good when people like Saudi Leaders are actually talking about zionists. Generally however, "zionists" spoken by such people in such context refers to the old debunked idea of a conspiracy amongst Jews in general, not t…
  • Religion: none. It's that simple. Not atheist, not christian. A better way of putting it: "I don't know" Did Jesus exist? Dunno. Was Jesus somehow holy? Dunno. Is there a god? Dunno. It's not that I haven't made up my mind, just that I've…
  • Let me get this straight. Apple is going to reveal this year's version of Mac OS X at WWDC. Oh. My. God. I did not see this coming at all. Sorry, just couldn't resist making fun of the thread title. "Mac OS X Tiger: Now it's official" or similar …
