My last couple of laptops were Lenovo's. May have to re-think that when planning the next one. I assume Linux would bypass this altogether but it is still a pretty crummy move.
Lenovo is back in the news again, this time for shipping laptops that would reinstall an OEM's bundled software -- even if you dropped a fresh copy of Windows on the machine.

Twelve different statisticians studied Russian roulette. Ten of them proved that it is perfectly safe. The other two scientists were unfortunately not able to join the final discussion.

Do you know a statistics joke? Probably, but it's mean! * * *. Twelve different world statisticians studied Russian roulette. Ten of them proved that it is perfectly safe. The other two scientists were unfortunately not able to join the final discussion.

Introducing Xubuntu core!

Xubuntu core is a slimmed down version of Xubuntu that doesn’t come with all the additional features of a full and modern desktop. We essentially only ship Xfce and the basic look and feel of Xubuntu, so there will be no office suite, media players, et cetera.
Xubuntu – Xubuntu is an elegant and easy-to-use operating system.

The innovation of parallel streams in Java 8 has diverted attention from a very substantial addition to the concurrency library, the CompletableFuture class. In http://bit.ly/1G5AFXj author Maurice Naftalin eloquently explores CompletableFuture, why it is so useful in programming systems that depend on the interaction of asynchronous tasks, and how it complements fork/join-style parallelism, including parallel streams

My latest blog post, with some shout outs to people in this community :)
Retrospectives are easy. They are easy because they are just a fancy word for a meeting in which the goal is to reflect on the past in an attempt to improve the future. Retrospectives are hard. The...

I gave desperate warnings against the obscurity, the complexity, and overambition of the new design, but my warnings went unheeded. I conclude that there are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.

I was trying to explain to someone the difference between Java and JavaScript. "It is like the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars."

Java is Star Trek. It was first, and it is all uniforms, regulations, and red alerts. JavaScript is Star Wars. Grit, chaos, and mysticism.

Look what happens when you try to open http://eatcodeplay.com/why-we-killed-off-code-reviews/ without JavaScript.

I think the message should read:

This is a stupid website which will require Javascript even to display simple text.
