I'd install one of these in every equipment room I would ever manage just to mess with people.

This is pretty cool, since this opens up the door for other distributions to take advantage of Canonical's code for similar integration.

Great! Apple is breaking a once-functional operating system once again. There used to be a focus on the user experience within a traditional windowing environment, but adding more features built for touch operating systems makes no sense. Emulation of iOS apps would be great, but awful in another. I'm not stating that will occur now but it's eventually going to happen. Instead of trying to integrate the two worlds closer until we can't tell the difference, Apple should be improving the desktop experience more.

Windows 8 is also heading down the same path but Microsoft has admitted that keeping the overall basic user interface accessible is important. Not everyone will have a touch-screen capable device or advanced touch pad and they know it. Apple, on the other-hand, locks out upgrades for older devices while forcing newer owners to deal with new and sometimes unwanted features. If you want an example, upgrading to 10.7 Lion affected how users scroll and forced them to either re-learn using two-finger scrolling in the opposite direction or figure out how to reverse scrolling to work the "right" way like it did in the past few operating system releases. This "feature" change could have been rolled out by allowing users to opt-into scrolling a different way, but Apple decided what was best for users and user interfaces.

I'd argue that 10.6 was the last release dedicated to traditional computer usage while newer releases will only continue to complicate the experience. A small portable device will be used differently than a larger desktop device.

I am not looking forward to a world where I have to clean my monitor every day.

Looks like their solution to monitor cleaning is some kind of oleophobic coating. It'll be interesting to see how it works.

I'm performing some routine maintenance on my home computer this morning. I'm not sure why I didn't bother to do it while I was at home this weekend, but RDP allows me to play catch-up.

Now I'm wondering why I installed Expression Engine and a few other apps.

I love Thunderbolt and look forward to more devices that use it, but this form of attack exploits users explicit trust of hardware.

I'm rolling back my CrunchBang installation to Statler R20110207 after having some issues with Statler R20111125 on my Cr-48. The older February release installed like a dream and idled near 70mb of RAM usage after initial installation while the November release was over twice that usage. Either I need to sit down and optimize the newer installation or roll-back and upgrade certain components.

Given this is Linux and I have choices, I'm rolling back.
