An LTS release of #openJDK for #Windows from #Redhat? Feels a bit weird, but their target audience probably needs it to not rely on Oracle JDK. I guess the differences to IBM Java are too big to just use that.
Wasn't MIPS support just removed from the #Linux kernel? But more open hardware is good news I guess. Let's hope it's not just the last attempt of a dying platform.
I'd call this the opposite of open source.
No scientific proof that war is ingrained in human nature
'...there is no scientific proof that we have an inherent propensity to take up arms and collectively kill.
In a study published in Scientific American, Ferguson argues that war may not be in our nature at all. People might fight and sometimes kill for personal reasons, but homicide, he argues, is not war [....]
"Anthropologists think about prospects for war in the long term," Ferguson says. "If the idea that war is part of human nature is not scientifically supported, alternative futures open up. If more people work for prevention, the eventual eradication of war is a definite theoretical possibility."...'
If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
@freebsdbytes ah, okay. Just read it.
@freebsdbytes Did you switch the instance?
To the Tumblr refugees: welcome!
Having been on the Internet for over thirty years, I have one piece of advice for creative folks working online:
Control Your Platform.
Don't build a business around Facebook, Tumbler, G+, Geocities, MySpace, AltaVista, or any of these other third parties that claim to offer quick and easy results.
They all go away. Every one of them.
Build your own site. Use third parties to steer people to your site.
Third parties are the devil--useful devils, but devils.
What counts as a bug?
