I just downloaded Red Star Linux 3.0 - a North Korean Linux Distribution and installed it in VirtualBox.  Even if it was a little tricky because i don't speak nor read Korean it was worth the effort. 

Take a look for yourself. It's of little use for everyone not speaking Korean, but it looks and feels way better then anything i've ever seen out of the box - and recently i tried Fedora 21, openSUSE 13.2 and Ubuntu 14.10. It looks kinda professional and well designed.

Don't get me wrong, i don't say that it might be better then the ones mentioned above. But it feels good - eventually because i'm also using OSX as my primary system at home.

On the Haiku Mail list the discussion about changing the kernel came up. Currently, Haiku is using a fork of the NewOS Kernel, developed by a former Be employee. 

In my opinion it's good as it is. Even if Haiku doesn't has that much amount of driver support and probably has it's very specific problems not everything must use the Linux kernel - often for a good reason. Haiku would lost a good amount of it's spirit if it's going to change over to the Linux camp just for the sake of participating from the vast amount of development put into the kernel.
 
Please, don't do it. Haiku's Kernel is sleak, elegant and performant.

One reason why i still own a old PC running DOS. Derive 4.11 from 1996. I'm so used to it that i resist using anything else. Even the Windows version isn't comparable when it comes to usability.

There pops a question to my mind: Why in the world would you sat down with your friends in the living room when you can Skype with them? #oculus   #vr

I don't get what's the problem. There must be a way for connecting to the internal bus of the car for maintainance reasons. Other car vendors use some proprietary protocol, Tesla is using Ethernet. As long as it's not exposed to the public world with a wireless protocol - why not?

This is going to be one of our next big challenges. With every device added there's a new attack vector to exploit.

And this time, these devices control more sensitive data and machines than Windows XP previously.

It's probably not legal because the governments can't control it.

I'm unsure if it's good or bad for Oculus. For sure we will see virtual Facebook Partys in the future.

It's always a bad idea to block internet access to restrict people from sharing their opinion. Even more if you are a unloved Politican. I'm curious how things will turn out there.
