CUPS is so important to Apple so they acquired it. Obviously it is still FOSS and they aren't Oracle.

I was reading about Itanium
On this iOS Google keyboard, Itanium or as the Register called it "Itanic" isn't even auto filled.
You should check Wikipedia which has a section about big name projections about the future and market predictions about it. We were supposed to run it on our desktops retiring x86
Nevertheless both Intel and HP were seriously managed companies by professionals. Not someone in a highly publicised mid-life crisis.
"not there's anything wrong with that" (Adobe AI)
I was in a hurry trying to prepare a poster with a couple dining on an Iceberg to show a restaurant has air conditioning. When I type "a couple dining on an iceberg with wine on the table" to the prompt it showed same sex couples from minorities. I tried almost a dozen times. I didn't want to put anything racist to the prompt either.
It is kinda ironic that I finally gave up Photoshop not because of that AI but global warming. It is a really badly written suite with 100% CPU load. The laptop thermal shutdowns without AC.

I looked around, serious cloud "PCs" are extremely expensive
I have a i5 CPU with Intel HD5500 GPU which really can't work well with Photoshop. It even overheats and shuts down and I _hate_ Windows. So I thought "let's rent some good PC which does have a good (non pro) GPU, 16GB of RAM and Windows whatever just to run Photoshop with Neural Filters.
When I finally gave up, I was looking to an offer from Amazon which was worth $650/month. Adding Windows license and GPU makes the prices crazy. I am not even talking about the stuff you would want to rent while having a good GPU.
The real amazing thing is, Adobe doesn't offer any solution to advanced users/small companies who doesn't really want to keep up with new GPU every 6 months. They are already subscribed. Just add extra "cloud processing" thing.
Re: Windows S store has been charging for some time
Libreoffice guys told me on Facebook that they are working on Windows Store version so it is definitely a leech taking advantage of Apache license. I suggested them to ship a Windows Store version just for that reason and an easy way to donate.
If they post a version,leeches are automatically eliminated.
Re: Click at your peril
No matter what you do or teach them, they will do it.
The idea is securing the workstation. I am shocked that a company sized as Solarwinds being in that business didn't setup complex policies. On Windows, you gotta be Administrator to mount ISO files or install such deep level software.
Everyone wondering around as Root, sh*t happens.
They really don't understand GNU/GPL philosophy
WinRAR Author is Russian too, he lives in Germany as far as I know. Issue is, we don't know if these people are Putin supporters or dissidents. Actually we shouldn't even have the right to ask.
GPL has a very stict "no discrimination" policy. People use open source/GPL software but aren't aware of "free in freedom speech" policy. E.g. an imaginary Ukranian missile may use 7zip internally and Pavlov wouldn't be able to discriminate it. Or, Zelezny could get sick of shareware winzip and run 7zip.
A legal analysis of "no discrimination policy" and how "no evil" policy has failed
For those worried about Microsoft's Pluton TPM chip: Lenovo won't even switch it on by default in latest ThinkPads
Re: What's the real function?
As RUFUS is open source/use open source components it had to suggest disabling secure boot to boot Windows 10 ISO. People flamed author of open source/free software since it is "disabling secure something".
Reading PR response is one thing, reading manufacturers error messages is another https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1044664/
It is called: Microsoft Secure Boot
What if Chrome broke features of the web and Google forgot to tell anyone? Oh wait, that's exactly what happened
Microsoft releases Windows 11 Insider Preview, attempts to defend labyrinth of hardware requirements
KDE has an excellent "Telemetry" implementation. I am sure they know about it, they just didn't want to give the user choice.There is a slider coming with nothing as default and if you slide it to right you send more information to KDE project step by step.IMHO it should have been implemented by Mozilla into Firefox rather than simple opt-in/opt-out scheme.
Relying on plain-text email is a 'barrier to entry' for kernel development, says Linux Foundation board member
Linux kernel maintainers tear Paragon a new one after firm submits read-write NTFS driver in 27,000 lines of code
Paragon actually sells that code to large companies including Android vendors for great sums of money. Nobody is dumping anything.
Let's say you have a render farm based on Linux and all your artists use Mac or Windows. You need something guaranteed to work with considerable support. You go to paragon like companies.

Apple owns, designs the freaking CPU. Just hope old school app installs will work let alone installing Linux. People tend to think like it is PowerPC. Back in the day Apple was busy adding great things like Altivec to the CPU. Now they are only interested in locking down their iThings.
Red Hat’s new CEO on surviving inside Big Blue: 'We don’t participate in IBM's culture. It’s that simple'
Here's that hippie, pro-privacy, pro-freedom Apple y'all so love: Hong Kong protest safety app banned from iOS store
No trillion dollar company can be peace loving, democratic hippie. When we talk about China, we talk about trillion dollar business interests including a gigantic government.
The issue is, there is no such thing as allowing third party sources to install software. It is just that. If you really expect Ms or Google to "stand up against China!!!" you are naive.
