    Eh?
    I read a hard requirement had been scratched, so it was time to walk.
    That's pretty much how hard requirements work by the way.

    Emphasis on "as far as I'm concerned". Emphasis on how he doesn't mention anything about what else he might want or need in a phone.
    Just that this particular phone fails to have round corners.

    Semantics/semontics, bottom-line my point in earlier posts stand.

    Yep, & the remainder of what was written made it clear that that 1x criteria not being met meant it was time to walk.
    Which is overly simplistic, as already explained in a prior post...

    Yes. One of Wayland's main developers is a Finn. Also IRC is from Finland.

    I'm pretty certain (and Linus has also indicated this) that it is the social welfare system in Finland that allows for all this awesomeness (in proportion to the pop. count). When the people can stay indefinitely studying at the universities while receiving free assistance from the government, they have the time and means to create awesome things.

    Socialism produces geniuses who help the society because the society helped them.
    Capitalism produces geniuses who exploit the society because the society is constantly trying to exploit them.
