Say #Apple - can you make a #macbookpro that actually feels...Pro?  It's a joke, and still falls short of what I (and I'm sure many others) want in a professional laptop.

Two things in #uidesign that piss me off.  First off, Number lock should always be enabled by default (Looking at you, #GNU #Linux ).  Second, FOCUS STEALING SHOULD NOT BE AN OPTION! ( #Windows #GNOME #KDE )  Applications should never be allowed to interrupt the user's typing!  It causes very bad input into programs!  And yet it is not only allowed, but not possible to disable in most user interfaces!

So, Microsoft is showing some Linux love with Visual Studio Code (https://code.visualstudio.com/).  Any thoughts on it?

Dear Apple Computer,

Can you please make a new, high end MacBook Pro?  One that is competitive with the Dell Precision line, like the old MBPs used to be?  Upgradable parts, high end GPU, and NOT paper thin?  Oh, and a good keyboard like you used to have would be nice too.

Thank you,
An old customer that is unhappy with every laptop you now sell.

Troubleshooting  - 
 
How do I change the default of $TERM from being xterm-256color back to xterm for remote connections? It's an issue for me when connecting to UNIX systems that do not support xterm-256color (Solaris 10 and IRIX 6.5.29 in my case).

Dunno. I'd just test and hope that it works. If it doesn't you always have the option of recompiling.

Question for you all: Who supports their previous versions of an OS the best?  Microsoft or Apple?  Seems to be that they all suck at it....

Agreed, I also never pre-order anything.  The only exception for me was The Witcher 3 but that was a bundle that was included with my new Nvidia GTX 960, so in reality I bought a graphics card and I was given a code for a free game.

Are you sure he wasn't just trying to squash a nasty spider? #Funny #Sysadmin #Unix #Linux #Humour

Are Dell and Panasonic really the only laptop manufacturers that still use decent keyboards on their systems?

Looking at options for moving away from Fedora Linux on my laptop (Dell Precision M4500) - it simply does not fit my needs any longer (Fedora 21 does not do what I need it to do, and I do not have the time to figure out what changed).  For a Unix compatible environment, options include Slackware, FreeBSD, and Solaris 11.  While I would prefer to stick with Linux, it is not a hard requirement for me (I like Steam, but also have Windows on a second SSD that I can simply use for all that) as nVidia drivers work well in other Unix environments.  Comments welcome. #Fedora #Slackware #FreeBSD #Solaris

Fedora people!  Any thoughts on why XDMCP no longer works in Fedora 21?

This is a change since Fedora 20 - and it does not matter if it was a clean install of F21 or upgrade.  I've tested multiple installs all to the same result.
