Re: It hasn't been able to kill lots of stuff
Systemd is a 'virus', we can agree on that. If I was deranged (which I clearly am not), I would get on a plane to Germany find that Lennart and give him a piece of my mind... let that be a lesson to you

I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over. I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you.
Without standing on top of a very tall mountain shouting admire my ignorance, but don't CISCO make network gear? More specifically why would their products' embedded OS have ALSA installed?

Of course CVE's don't mean much on their own
'What the fuck has this got to do with Brexit?' :
In all honesty probably not a great deal.
Oh the irony, jobs in brexit central heavily dependent on contracts to build the <u>eurofighter</u> typhoon, it'll be more brexit related when Nissan make their announcement. That said, it is no laughing matter, 1000 jobs directly plus probably many more indirectly from service sector, and external contractors.
Indeed, I've been through the 'process' with a loved one who was granted full benefits upon appeal. That indeed seems to be the entire point of this costly and pointless process. Possibly(robably) some accept the outcome of their ATOS decision, and never appeal. The scummy politicians think this charade is perfectly acceptable.
Before ATOS existed the claimant GP's word, and opinion was accepted.
Not so now
I've used K for a windows box, primarily because of its' good independent test reports and the involvement of K in many international IT security efforts. Should I seek to switch? If so, can anyone recommend a good non-Russian cum non-American (obviously) alternative for work laptop?
PS I don't store any sensitive government, military, or politcial information.

Chaffetz said the technology makes mistakes, with one in seven FBI facial recognition searches incorrectly returning a list of innocent people as matches, despite the presence of the actual matching image in the database.

One minor detail, a truly air gapped system won't get infected with the malware unless assisted by something with stuxnet like capabilities, and/or lax protocols allowing the pluging of USB's, or forgetting to disable all wireless comms at the driver level etc.. All the demos seem to presume the air gapped system is infected in the first place, apparently the trivial bit is infecting such systems. Perhaps I'm missing something really obvious.
They could kill the golden goose in one swift move which would not only make other companies potentially fly away
Do you honestly believe these vampiric, blood sucking vultures would flyaway from one of the lowest corporate tax hideouts in the largest market outside of the good ol' US of A, and the 'not so communist' China, to setup office in Budapest? Your conjecture is facile at best.
Or perhaps the Irish government, merely have to be seen to be opposed to the notion, while privately wondering what to spend the wind-fall monies on.
... and everything to do with politics, if you belive what the tech republic article posted on the 10th has to say about this.
"At the time the report was released, the FSFE questioned why Accenture was commissioned to co-author a report assessing the use of Microsoft software, when the consultancy runs a joint venture with Microsoft called Avanade, which helps businesses implement Microsoft technologies. For its part, Accenture said it has an "independent view of the technology landscape"."
The citizens of Munchen must be so proud of there elected councillors, I for one feel so sorry for the poor bastards.
Oracle are not being insane, like any other company they have a fiduciary obligation to maximise profit by any realistic means possible. They own Java, and monetising Java is potentially a very lucrative way of cashing in on the success of Android. If they're not seen to be pursuing every opportunity properly their own employment is under threat from aggrieved and out of pocket shareholders.
That depends on your definition of realistic, and the win/loss risk assessment. They own java?, where does that leave open JDK, in the court? I read somewhere : "the jury found that Android does not infringe Oracle-owned copyrights because its re-implementation of 37 Java APIs is protected by fair use".
To me neither corporation is a beacon of hope, though you have to wonder what Oracle hope to achieve. Should IP be granted for abstract concepts like API interfaces? In my view that could lead us down a very murky avenue indeeed, wouldn't you agree.

To be fair, there is some irony in this mozilla 'privacy edition', however it is fully disclosed, and open source to boot. This is hardly the stuff of sinister conspiracy plots ... meh?!
