Saying a product is better because it's open source or built for linux IS NOT a feature, it's a defining quality. Kinda like saying ice cream comes from milk... no one gives a shit and it has nothing to do with why it's tasty.

I feel like I'm stuck in this cruel purgatory between the digital and analog land. I want to draw by hand, but I want to store it securely, and the technology to do both is just beyond my grasp.

I don't like loud noises, crowds, or alcohol... How does one meet people?

We live in a world where people are developing a nasty habit of "skim reading" in order to save time, at the expense of basing knowledge on assumptions used to fill in the blanks.
To date my favorite example of this is:
"It's like using Maya 3D! They're comparing themselves to it right here."
"No. They're saying it's nothing like Maya 3D. L2Read."

I'm going to say that #TerminatorGenisys was AWESOME. No it's not a reboot, and if you haven't seen the second or third trailer for the film you're better off because only the marketing team thought it was a good idea... and it wasn't.
The frequent callbacks to #Terminator 1 and 2 were great, and the "no-bullshit" attitude of Arnolds Terminator was spot-on. One assumption is left open that the learning chip was switched to read/write (as it was in T2 when the machine started making jokes), but it's a believable assumption.
New T-1000 is also just as badass as the one from T2, even more so with it constantly using its abilities whenever effective, rather than when the plot demands it.
Even with the spoilers in the trailer, the film managed to bring out a few surprises and to poke fun at societies use of technology and its growth as had happened in T2, and once again we face another story that makes predictions on the growth of artificial intelligence once it's achieved and the ways it can infiltrate and dominate our lives. There were also hints that a sequel to this story could be made, and I only hope the film gets enough viewers that it gets produced as it should be.
