"Like the article says, if you don't have any sound daemon then you can only play one thing at a time. Anything else that tries to play audio will get an error when it tries to open the sound device if something else is currently playing, which is not what most users expect."
And yet, I have pulseaudio and pipewire both on my "taboo - never install" blacklist (OpenSuse Leap), and have no problem listening to a music stream while watching 2 simultaneous videos, each with their own volume control, working perfectly. Maybe I'm holding it wrong..
Re: Happy Days
"VS Code is a bit fragile with some of the plugins, particularly for git under Linux, but it has a decent number of addons to handle syntax highlighting, editing, and good enough vim emulation."
You know what else has decent syntax highlighting, editing, and a pretty good vim emulation?
Re: As part of its human resources initiatives to strengthen its status as a DX company
"HR departments being of course notorious for their young, dynamic, innovative and transformative nature, and not at all stuffed full of unimaginative dullards who can't scratch their own arse without first having consulted the company policy on arse-scratching."
I think you mean there, "...without holding internal meetings with "senior leadership" for a year and a half to create a company policy on arse-scratching."
And then not telling anyone about it.

Red Hat tips its Fedora 33: Beta release introduces Btrfs as default file system, .NET on ARM64, plus an IoT variant
It's pretty ironic
"while reducing the amount of expertise needed to deal with situations like running out of disk space"
BTRFS uses large amounts of disk space without telling 'du' or 'df' about it. In my experience, exactly the opposite of this claim is true. When you get an unexplainable 'out of disk space' error, you can't see anyplace it's gotten to, and it turns out you quickly need to learn about a bunch of infrastructure you never knew was there, expertise is at a premium.
And that's why I'll never use btrfs again.

Re: Why isn't any one offended men were required to wear a blazer and slacks or suit?
"Why are so many in the comments "indignant" about women being told what to wear, but nary a peep about men being told what to wear?"
Because men are such stupid sheep they think being told to dress in stupid clothes (and neck accessories) is actually a compliment on their abilities to select stupid clothes.
Re: Can ERP actually be a perfect fit for any company ?
"Good for whoever is in charge of the programming, not so good for the company in the long run."
Citation needed. How many problems are avoided, how much spending is never even planned when you have a more-or-less fixed cost inhouse pool of expertise to draw on?
