The great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.

Once again the forces for copyright have reduced the rights of normal people who have done nothing wrong. Any chance of a lost nickle is too much for the copyright advocates. And they get to demand these rights for life+70 years. That's no good for the public domain, but that's an easy to ignore consequence if they can be $20 richer in the 145th year of publication.

As China has amply demonstrated if you want to remain relevant to manufacturing you need a very different view of intellectual property. But don't worry, for trading away making cars, washing machines, and almost everything else we got Hollywood and stock photo houses. Those are the best people to optimize our economy for it would seem. I'm sure Hollywood is excited to retrain coal and factory workers to be the next Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

I wish I had known this earlier, but I finally set my default in my preferences to wanting Linux. It does't seem to limit my ability to see Windows-only games in the store or discovery queues. See https://gaming.stackexchange.com/a/311702/100715 to learn how to set your preferences.

Higher tax rates for the rich could actually make the world a better place. See the charts to prove it...

To protect our government we should insist on a preference for open source solutions. It is cheaper initially and overall. There are fewer bugs. There is less motivation for nefarious deeds. Vendor lock-in goes away. All of this is true for businesses and home uses as well.

I usually don't have much sympathy for Microsoft, but this is so classic I can't help but laugh.

The solution to your Debian problems is to completely disable ipv6. This is not the awesome I was looking for.
