I would definitely file Linux into the category of "things that changed my life for the better" ...

Thanks, +Jay Pfaffman, for introducing me to it...
 
Hello everybody out there using Linux -

I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, even if it's big and professional) for 486+ AT clones and just about anything else out there under the sun. This has been brewing since april 1991, and is still not ready. I'd like any feedback on things people like/dislike in Linux 3.11-rc7.

I originally ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), but others have taken over user space and things still seem to work. This implies that I'll get the final 3.11 release within a week, and I'd like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won't promise I'll implement them :-)

Thanks, Dossy. Getting tagged in your post sort of made my day, which had already been quite enjoyable. I'm pretty sure I remember reading that thread on comp.os.minix back in August of 91. I knew that I was an early adopter, but now I'm pretty sure that I downloaded the very first public release.

And now, when I'm forced to use Windows, it's running in a VM under Linux.

This is why a proof-of-concept exploit that works against the latest out-of-the-box install of a piece of software, that attacks it with only user-level access, is so important. Without it, your "hypothetical" weakness gets deprioritized behind other actual defects affecting actual users.

Honestly, does anyone run WordPress with a charset that isn't either ISO-8859-* or UTF-8? If you can find even one WP install whose MySQL charset is vulnerable, I would be downright shocked.

+ha kre - so, who uses it? Or are we talking purely hypothetically?

Good reality testing says that we rightfully prioritize effort around reality and not perceived needs based purely on intent...

And this is why we have been seeing a marked drop in open rate to customers on Gmail lately...

Well, if there's a silver lining, it's that lots of people hate the new tabs... I've turned them off for two people just this week.

Okay, I just installed the G+ iOS app, since the mobile web interface was so disappointing. I'm going to really try to figure out a way to make G+ usable/useful for me, if it is actually possible.

Right now, it's a stream of noise and I don't know how to best fix this. On Twitter, I can create lists and follow/in follow people. Are G+ "circles" powerful enough to provide the same kind of functionality? Can I have my home stream default to a particular circle, or is "all circles" fixed?

Can I follow someone else's circle, like I can view someone else's public Twitter list, letting them do the work of curating the circle for me? Or do I have to manually try to keep my circle in sync with someone else's, if I want that functionality? (Which, honestly, is a non-starter...)

What tips or wisdom can anyone share to help make the G+ experience not suck so badly? Or, is this just a waste of time...?

+Kee Hinckley - How can you turn on push notifications for updates by people in a circle?

Edit: never mind, I found it. Let's see how well this works for me...

G+ won't make it to September. Or, rather, it'll have less than 10,000 active users by then -- and 9,000 of those will probably be network marketers and spammers, who haven't bothered turning off their automated scripts.

But really, I do like Google+. It's been very impressive to watch it grow. And technically, it's even more impressive.

In the grander scheme, more competition in any space is always better. New ideas and pressure force incumbents to step up their games, if nothing else. The users will ultimately win one way or another.

It's simply my job to look at trends and get out in front of them. Google+, in my view, is already slipping a bit right now. It's not the end of the world, and perhaps it's only natural after the insane launch they had.

What I'm really saying is something that should be beyond obvious: this next phase for them is key. They've had no problem getting users to sign up (they are Google, after all). Now it's all about retention, making Google+ more sticky.

It's a problem that every service faces. Facebook may have been better at this than any other service in history. And you could make the case that it was the pictures element of the product that ultimately was the key to that. Google+ needs to find and define what their Facebook Photos feature will be. Maybe it's Hangouts. Maybe it's something else.

But I guarantee you the Google+ team knows all of this and thinks about it everyday. The rest of us probably don't, as users. But for many of us it's an interesting thing to talk about, debate, and watch. Hence, posts like this: http://techcrunch.com/2011/07/27/google-minus/

Of course the answer is going to be somewhere between Colin and you, Dossy. The square law of communications infrastructure dominates. Facebook is and will be the google of social media just because it has so many more users. Its the same way that Google killed everyone else in search by having all the pages. Volume counts and GOOG has a long run to achieve FBs audience share. It hardly sucks as bad as you think Dossy - frankly I prefer it to FB - but the people aren't here and that does suck.
