Hang on, no S-Pen? Without the S, any phone is only a phone, no matter how shiny.

Doesn't the DoD realize that the Russians & Chinese have already found these vulns, even hidden them, in preparation for WW3. When US officers press the Big Button, either nothing will happen or the ICBM will explode in its silo. The enemy will win before a shot is even fired. Americans live in a fantasy - and will die there.
Been using Linux since 1995, when it was "difficult" but obviously the way forward. Now it's almost too easy. Install it on small biz operations, no problems, charge (modestly) for maintenance. Why is anyone, except specialists, still using Win? Of course, the Legacy Fear and enforced ignorance of a "free so must be crap" system that in practice is far superior. Sad.
The reason I bought my Note 4 was only for the stylus. No silly thumbing emails, just scribble it out, auto OCR & send. For drawing with auto correction, note taking that can be turned to usable text, pasted into emails or stories (journo here) it's super. Wife uses hers conferencing on the go, presentations, leaves the Thinkpad at home. Oh it also takes pix and makes phone calls. After a Note you giggle at the iPhone.
Oh, I bet your cut the crusts off your sandwiches and read the Bible before bed. There is no Justice. Assange's charges were rigged, his accusers recanted, the Swedes dropped the charges. The Brits will send him to their masters in the US, thence to Gitmo forever. Get it, twerp?
Oddly, you've relieved my pain a little. I'm on my 3rd Acer Aspire keyboard, which is again having "mood swings", waking up forgetting short cuts (Linux Mint) and language switches. Is it so hard to make a decent keyboard? My old Thinkpads took a pounding (old journo here) and begged for more, even after the characters wore off. Might follow your lead on the X240.
Am I missing something? After five broken 5MXs, a friendly Psion Netbook, I bought a Samsung Note. Fits in any pocket. Runs MS Word, which I can write into with the S-pen, turn scribble into usable text (auto spell), edit, send anywhere. Oh, and the phone, cameras and everything else work perfectly. I save Linux for my desktops & laptops, but the Note's perfect for story ideas, notes, lists, drawing maps, etc, ad hoc or on the move (Old style journo). OK, it's only Android, but the Gemini has the same problems of my five MXs - lousy keyboard and poor QC, broken spring hinges and screen ribbons.
I've installed Linux on four of my machines and those of friends, without problems. Frankly, Linux is easier to install these days than Windows. Never had a problem with drivers - they're either included or downloadable from a repo. HTH
BTW Love the Red button!
You haven't heard about the recipe for cockatoo soup.
Take one cockatoo, plucked or not. Toss in pot of boiling water, a little salt added. Toss in one house brick. Boil for a few days. When brick is dissolved, chuck out cockatoo and eat the soup.
That's how tough the buggers are.
You obviously don't understand Linux or its users. The vast majority of servers run Linux, because it's reliable. Geeks run Linux because it's versatile, flexible and extensible. I run Linux because I make it do exactly what I want quickly, reliably. The average desktop user doesn't know or care about the box under the table. OK. Yet more frequently I'm installing Linux for them because Windows doesn't work, help is useless and they're tired of hassles. Linux can be free, if you know how to run it. Or you can pay for it via service, eg Redhat. That's Linux. Options in a closed shop.
This is past ridiculous. Abbottabad was a phony op. God knows who if anyone was killed. OBL's boss, the CIA, has already confirmed he died, probably of renal failure in Tora Bora, in late 2001, a few months after 9/11. Never on an FBI wanted listed and always denied involvement in 9/11.
The 2011 game was so silly, lost helo, shot wrong people, "Muslim" burial at sea, no records. Suddenly the CIA releases docs? Nonsense.
