Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

BSD doesn't redefine word "free". It just estabilishes freedom to use software however you want. Ergo: it gives you a TOTAL freedom.

Researchers SHARE their work and that's what they supposed to do in education, which is - surprise, surprise - about learning, research, sharing discoveries, etc. I think you are deeply wrong on this subject.
Ritchie and Thompson did their greates things against their own employer, he didn't even know they were working on the particular stuff. He just gave them much more freedom, because it was research.

I didn't try to perpetrate anything, so keep that utter stuff for yourself. This is how you overlooked and misunderstood the things I said.
