I doubt it is accessible, as with other JetBrains 'cross-platform', or indeed a lot of other 'cross-platform' IDEs

You can hack a PC just by looking at it, say 3M and HP


Re: virtual monitors

I have the solution. As a totally blind programmer I don't even have a monitor. Nobody can hear my screen-reader through my headphones. If everybody else did the same for security's sake maybe somebody would give me a job on the back of my 25 years experience and not care about my blindness


Gissa job then

I'm not a security risk! I am a totally blind programmer with 25 years experience. But I can't find a job. But when I'm wearing my headphones and listening to my screen-reader with my monitor switched off or not even plugged in I could save the day!

Linux kernel dev who asked Linus Torvalds to stop verbal abuse quits over verbal abuse


Nobody has the right to avoid offence

It's childish in the extreme to suggest anybody has some kind of concrete never to be offended by anything they read either online or anywhere else. Sure we have rules about how to communicate, both specifically laid down in black and white, like in the workplace, and by unspoken cultural rules. But constantly striving to remove all sources of offence from every scrap of media is a dangerous and stupid expectation. Sure Linus and the other devs are sometimes rude and aggressive, just like the world
