Same sex marriages or attraction is very much natural. Only unnatural stuff are the man-made laws prohibiting two (or more) people from loving each other and staying together. Opposition of marriage equality is all about forcing religious views of one segment over the rest and stripping the rest from their freedom of loving who they want to love. That's discrimination and thus unnatural and very much anti-American thing.

+Joy Bhattacherjee Which Indian Culture?  The one that became extremely conservative post Islamic and British invasion to protect their roots or pre-invasion culture which was far more open? The current Indian Culture is a very confusing...then looking at the diversity of this country there can't be 'one' Indian culture. In Indian culture is OK to marry a girl with a dog or a tree but not to another woman? Interesting. Anything that happens in nature without human intervention is natural - same sex attraction is natural :-) We are genetically coded to do so. Maybe same-sex attraction is the answer to the growing population of India :P

The crowdfunding campaigns shows that Open Source is not about free of cost software.

rEFInd is an excellent boot manager which allows a user to boot many different operating systems in UEFI mode, including Linux and Windows. The official website for rEFInd’s documentation could be quite daunting to the casual reader. It is for this reason that I have compiled this concise guide, showing you how to install rEFInd on your system. The guide is divided into several sections, so as to not appear overwhelming.

When it comes to server OS, CentOS is always one of the top choices.

Choosing a reliable operating system for your server is a choice that every system administrator needs to make. Basically every Linux distro that provides a Desktop edition also has a server edition. Of course there are many factors that need to be considered before making your choice. For example what project you plan to run, what software you need and is it well supported for that distribution.

Testing Linux Mint 17.2, but it not treating the Magic Trackpad well. First it keeps asking for a PIN even if I choose the '0000' option and then the scrolls don't work. .
