The State of Voat submitted by PuttItOut to announcements

It would be best if this led to some sort of donation page that gave instructions on how to donate, as well as Bitcoin sites and the like. I don't know if direct bank transfers would work for this - would they? I know some people only want to deal with "real" currency, and Bitcoin isn't exactly the easiest stuff to come by (it's not hard, but getting it can be a PITA, especially if you're new to all this and don't want to get ripped off).

The eternal moderation dilemma, I'd like to hear your thoughts on this one submitted by Atko to announcements

This should only be done if the sub itself has some say over becoming a default sub.

Just swooping in and saying, "Hi, folks, you're a default now, so spruce up or we're kicking you current mods out!" is ultimately pretty rude to say the least.

Sick of Windows spying on you? Go Linux submitted by FreeSpeachRocks to technology

tribblepuncher 10 points 73 points (+83|-10) ago

Yeah, problem with all of this is that Windows has the vast majority of end-user desktop software. While some software such as Wine and Codeweaver's stuff manages to help a great deal, "help a great deal" is a far cry from "run perfectly." Although virtualization is an option, most high-performance tasks are going to take a hit - possibly a massive one - due to the fact that virtualization adds another layer to everything, which is especially nasty when you need high-performance parts such as a GPU to work well.

Simple fact of the matter is - and people who are busy screaming about how great Windows 10 is and how all its critics should shut the fuck up try to pretend not to hear this - Linux is hard-pressed to replace Windows, for the simple fact that the monopolistic position has let the DOS/Windows ecosystem entrench itself for 30 years, and it is extremely difficult to get out of it. That said, there may be considerably worse problems for "going Linux" considering what's going on with UEFI, and I seriously speculate that things are only going to get worse on that count.

Arrest Of Twitter User Could Have Serious Implications For The World Of Internet Trolling submitted by bdmthrfkr to technology

tribblepuncher 8 points -4 points (+4|-8) ago

I wouldn't even call it harassment. More like assault.

I can see where there would be concern as to the legal precedent, and some hare-brain may well misinterpret this in the future for their own twisted purposes, but the intent and substance of the transmission is fundamentally different than any trolling I can think of.

Your comment shines with your intellect and obvious talent at debate with crushing reasoning and retorts. Bravo.

Michelle Obama's school lunch guidelines tossed out like a Michelle Obama school lunch submitted by fluxusp to news

Taking lunch from home is easier said than done when the teachers see fit to confiscate food items that don't fit their guidelines.
