Mechanical owner here.

You know, owning a mech keyboard is great and all, but it doesn't come without its tradeoffs.

  1. They type 15-30% slower due to longer activation times.
  2. They make voice chatting, VOIP impossible due to loud noises and heavy sound distortion.
  3. They cost 5 times as much and are already out of date by 20 years.
  4. They lack media keys, macros, and other important functions that no self-respecting gamer enthusiast can live without.
  5. They also feature scam models known as "10 key less" which are more expensive for fewer keys, worse than that, it's a lie. They actually have 15 fewer keys. You are charged a key removal fee for each key that ranges from $5-10 per key lost.
  6. Not all mechanicals are the same. They charge you a premium for using different dyes in the plastic. Want your switches in black or blue? Well they'll charge you more for those colors even though the dye is the same price as red or brown.

You must be GNU here. “Free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech,” not as in “free beer.”

Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. More precisely, it means that the program's users have the four essential freedoms:

The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
The freedom to study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others (freedom 3). By doing this you can give the whole community a chance to benefit from your changes. Access to the source code is a precondition for this.

A program is free software if users have all of these freedoms. Thus, you should be free to redistribute copies, either with or without modifications, either gratis or charging a fee for distribution, to anyone anywhere. Being free to do these things means (among other things) that you do not have to ask or pay for permission to do so.

let me tell you something

  • Opera invented Tabs
  • Opera invented memory management
  • Opera was the first to integrate privacy control
  • Opera was the first to integrate a component which speed up loading times, and could increase page loading as high up as 40x
  • Opera designed today's browser UI. Chrome, FF and IE copied it to some extent.
  • Opera designed the minimalistic UI of having 1 icon where you access all settings etc.
  • Opera pioneered the latest speed race, without Opera, FF would still be in Beta 1, Chrome would be in Chrome 6, Opera is the lead innovator and THEY are paving the way for browsers such as FF and Chrome.
  • Opera was the first to have integrated search
  • Opera was the first to have Small Screen Rendering
  • The first to have full page Zoom
  • Opera was the first to cache web pages in RAM rather then HDD
  • First to introduce Mouse Gestures
  • Opera was the first to introduce integrated pop up blocking
  • Opera was the first to introduce Speed Dial. An innovative feature which is now copied by Chrome and I believe Firefox as well
  • Don't forget to add that Opera is the first to support HTML5's <input type="date"> so you don't have to use a library like jQuery UI.

Apple doesn't have a a water resistant keyboard design.

Apple doesnt have pointing stick

Apple doesn't have master race of laptop keyboards

Apple doesn't have removable hard drives

Apple doesn't have removable batteries

Apple: Broke your screen? Send it to apple wait 2-3 weeks.
Lenovo: Broke your screen? Order a new one and replace it yourself in 1-5 days including possible shipping time.

Lenovo and MBP is almost equally drop resistant.

The Lenovo comes with Industry standard Windows, MBP Add another 140 bucks...

A computer forensics specialist has a message for security-minded computer users: A single wipe will make drives impossible to read.

In research published on Thursday, auditor Craig Wright tested the ability of a special type of electron microscope, known as a magnetic force microscope, to read data that has been erased. While overwriting the data multiple times with a random series of 0s and 1s makes it harder to recover, Wright found that it is nearly impossible to recover any meaningful amount of data after a only single pass. Recovering a single byte of data, for example, on a used drive is successful less than one percent of the time, he found. Accurately recovering four bytes, or 32 bits, of data only works nine times out of each million tries.
