Providing Windows support after switching to Linux:  "I know that I have 6 monitors full of things you don't understand.  But try to grasp that you have ONE screen with at least 6 things I don't understand."

Christmas is over time for everyone to write boring worst/best X of the year lists and publish them as articles.  Then there will be followup articles for predictions for the new year.  It's the two week lull where no one writes anything worth more than a quick skim of section titles.

We want this thing  and condemn anyone else who wants the same thing.   Good job, Murica! #obama #stupidity #spying  
The White House wants tech companies to hand over encryption keys or build backdoors. So why is it criticizing China for wanting the same thing?
