Re: Radio Tray Bookmark Additions...

Hi Portreve, You are welcome... Keep us posted on your progress... . Well, I just had a chance to install it but it won't open. I even tried launching it via terminal and it just doesn't open. When I tried it that way, here's the output I get: Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/strea...

Radio Tray Bookmark Additions...

NOTE TO MODS: If this topic would fit better in another area, please feel free to move it accordingly. Thanks! I'm in the process of learning German, and one of the things I want to do is listen to German language radio over the Internet (since that's the only way I'm able to do so) and in the cour...

Re: windows 7 EOL opportunity for linux?

I'm not really sure why I'm about to post this response. I think it has as much to do with trying to get my mind off of personal matters vexing my thoughts today as it has to do with the topic at hand. Nevertheless, I'll try to shepherd together some coherent thoughts for you to contemplate. Because...

Re: windows 7 EOL opportunity for linux?

lol, exactly! although the 'landscape' has changed significantly since winXP was finally fading away and official EOL everywhere. I believe the general public is waking up to greater privacy appreciations and concerns that have come to the forefront with EU data handling laws, daily (seeming) mega-...

Re: windows 7 EOL opportunity for linux?

The primary limiting factor here for migration of the masses towards GNU+Linux is one of intellectual laziness. I would say "ignorance" but ignorance is actually an adjective, not a verb, and in any event is eminently curable. However, people have to actively want to cure it. That means bothering to...

Re: Microsoft Edge will be based on Chromium

While the reply stays the same --- who cares about Microsoft's motivation in a field in which they will not be able to hurt anyone except themselves anyway? The future is unknowable in terms of specific facts. That said, past behavior is often an indicator of future actions, and who is to say what ...

Re: Who is spying on us?

Good morning. It is true. And so what? we have a right to privacy PERIOD, THAT"S WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!! But do we, actually? What I mean by that is best explained by way of an analogy. We tend to think of property ownership rights in basic, traditional terms: I buy an object and it is now legally mine an...

Re: Microsoft Edge will be based on Chromium

You don't have to. Microsoft simply doesn't have the clout to eff anyone over in this area. Embrace and Extend? Yeah, and Extinguish themselves... I don't trust Micro$oft's motivations here. In fact, I don't trust any of their motivations (in general, obviously) where anything GNU+Linux or libre li...

Re: Who is spying on us?

We in the U.S. live in the land and in the era of convenience and utility. That doesn't necessarily mean we're doing something wrong (though there are individual instances when a given way we do something is wrong) but what it does mean is there's a consequence for how we're living. Government is a ...

Re: Kilogram, ampere, kelvin and mole redefined

I was talking about what you may call middle school / junior high school (ages 12-14). In middle school we only had mandatory classes back then and chemistry was part of it IIRC. I got to select which classes to take in high school. I live in Florida. Our state educational results are towards to bo...

Re: Kilogram, ampere, kelvin and mole redefined

You must have skipped chemistry in school. When I was in high school, from 86-90, Chemistry was not a mandatory class. In fact, you would have to have taken a couple other science classes first, and gotten through a lot higher level math classes than I ever took in order to get into it. Besides, if...

...'they' don't need to directly backdoor the Linux kernel upstream after a certain point. If you control (or can subvert) the hardware, you control the (whatever) stack above it.

I believe I read that Ikey Doherty (the developer) left Solus a month or two ago, he wrote a going away letter. Rumor was that he got booted out by some others. Huh...

Solus OS

It's not my intention to use one GNU+Linux message board to trash talk another GNU+Linux distro; however, I am more than a bit frustrated with and concerned about Solus. I have used Solus, having previously installed version 3 not long after it came out. Insofar as it being a distro is concerned, an...

Re: NSA backdoors in Win 10.?

I don't delve into conspiracy theory discussions because, absent credible proof, they invariably prove themselves to be 100% b******t. That said, for someone in his position to refuse to answer suggests to me only one of two possibilities: he has something to hide (personally, or through a sense of ...
