I'm not the only one that thinks that Google+ is shitty and a mess that Google is throwing down our throats...

<rant>Why does Google not allow us to opt out from Google Plus while keeping the gTalk, gMail, gMaps and other really useful services? Google Plus is the worse implementation Google has ever done, a bad imitation of the worse features of Facebook, and they keep us hostages. I'm really tired of receiving obnoxious invitations and spam here. Zero real value.</rant>

I think it’s perfectly OK for Apple to have policies about what they will and won’t sell (every online store does).   The problem is that Apple reserves the exclusive right to provide apps. So, in effect, the policy isn’t “We won’t sell X”, it’s “You can’t have X”.

Which is why, back in 2008, I decided that the iPhone, an otherwise wonderful product, wasn’t for me.

Venting.

I don't think I can talk about "security" people without cursing, so you might want to avert your eyes now.

I gave OpenSUSE a try, because it worked so well at install-time on the Macbook Air, but I have to say, I've had enough. There is no way in hell I can honestly suggest that to anybody else any more.

I first spent weeks arguing on a bugzilla that the security policy of requiring the root password for changing the timezone and adding a new wireless network was moronic and wrong.

I think the wireless network thing finally did get fixed, but the timezone never did - it still asks for the admin password.

And today Daniela calls me from school, because she can't add the school printer without the admin password.

Whoever moron thought that it's "good security" to require the root password for everyday things like this is mentally diseased.

So here's a plea: if you have anything to do with security in a distro, and think that my kids (replace "my kids" with "sales people on the road" if you think your main customers are businesses) need to have the root password to access some wireless network, or to be able to print out a paper, or to change the date-and-time settings, please just kill yourself now. The world will be a better place.

.. and now I need to find a new distro that actually works on the Macbook Air.
