“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
― Isaac Asimov

And it does that using pure HTTP?

You gotta be kidding me.

Dear Microsoft: thank you for Windows 8 - you turned me, and who knows how many users into Linux fans.

If you must use chrome, use chromium and not google chrome. Open source is better for security. They say "trust the experts." Surprise: opensource apps ARE edited and maintained by many developers.

for non-technical Linux useres, is the shizzle.
