@popey see, the problem here is that none of the open sourcing that #Microsoft does actually matters to end users, they just want to win back developers so that more people will buy their proprietary crap
so I really don't think they deserve the praise, no matter how much their marketing team worked on their videos
BSD vs GPL (& Linux)
@freakazoid The thing is, copyleft is important to some of us. It's an ethics thing if you will. Having interected with many BSD people over the years, some of them can be shockingly pro-corporatist, I don't want to be in such a corner.
There's no reason why everything has to have the same features, why everything has to *be* the same. BSD is a choice you can make, GNU/Linux is a choice you can make. It's up to you. FreeBSD is even re-basing their tree on ZoL, so...
@jacek yeah it's ridiculous.
But it's a symptom of a bigger problem:
On one hand, people make excessively complex software, which requires a complex installation procedure.
On the other hand, those who want to install that software became impatient and don't really try to understand what's going on on their machine.
IMO this is sad.
you know those "rolling standards" WHATWG makes? If you could hold them in place so that they stop rolling, I'd fork Firefox right away.
@cwebber I don't know how familiar you are with all this, but basically,
• Plan 9 is an OS, the next project of the Unix team at Bell Labs after Unix; like Unix but better, simpler and with native network transparency
• plan9port aka Plan 9 from User Space is a port of Plan 9 userspace programs/utilities to run under Unix
• GNU Hurd is a Unix kernel based on microkernel architecture that can be used instead of Linux
• now it is possible to run plan9port on top of GNU/Hurd Unix systems too
A good improvement could be a checkbox to provide a virtual host for a user so that given the root domain assigned to the machine each user might have their own domain (say name.freedombox.local) and maybe this might be customised too through the user creation ui.
Then (Web) Apps might be enabled by virtual host through a set of checkboxes.
What's your take on this @bob?
Also where I can find freedombone's localization files? I might help to translate in Italian.
A note from the test of tonight (on Freedombox, not FreedomBone): some configurations seems a bit... too wide.
For example apache's is configured to serve /plinth to all virtual hosts and I have found no interface to define new virtual hosts.
