Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world.



https://www.oxfam.org/en/pressroom/pressreleases/2017-01-16/just-8-men-own-same-wealth-half-world

It's like most people don't think about the consequences when they use Microsoft Windows and Apple products, when they go to Walmart, when they don't boycott companies that lack social responsibility, when they vote for corrupt politicians, etc.

Of course we also have to take into account:
· The financial/banking system (based on debt slavery, compound interests, etc).
· Patents (that is, monopolies granted by the state so corporate predators can hijack technologies that otherwise could be used to produce new cheaper products, medicines... all over the world).
· Tax havens and loopholes.
· Corporate welfare.
· Corruption, insider trading, etc.

Just 8 men own same wealth as half the world | Oxfam International

Eight men own the same wealth as the 3.6 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity, according to a new report published by Oxfam today to mark the annual meeting of political and business leaders in Davos.

Mesh Gradients Test with Inkscape 0.92pre3 Pre-ReleaseInkscape needs your help!
https://inkscape.org/en/news/2016/11/14/mesh-gradients-test-inkscape-092pre3-pre-release/



Nov. 14, 2016, 10:09 p.m.



The 0.92pre3 source package and the corresponding Windows versions have been released. The pre-release version contains a preview of a potential last minute new feature, that might be included in Inkscape 0.92, mesh gradients. It is our hope that raising visibility of this awesome feature will help motivate its inclusion in the SVG 2.0 specification, which is approaching finalization.

Please try the feature out, and if you like it, please advocate for its adoption by web browsers and other SVG using applications.

Whether we actually include it in 0.92 depends on hearing plenty of positive feedback. We'll also be paying attention to reports of problems. (...)

We are pushing to release Inkscape 0.92 with the Gradient Mesh Tool enabled, but to do this we need people to test it, give us feedback, and report bugs. Below are links to download the 3rd prerelease of 0.92. Please help, as users do tend to run into more issues/bugs than developers.

GNU Hurdhttps://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/


What is the GNU Hurd?

The GNU Hurd is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel. It is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux). (...)

What is the mission of the GNU Hurd project?

Our mission is to create a general-purpose kernel suitable for the GNU operating system, which is viable for everyday use, and gives users and programs as much control over their computing environment as possible. (...)

Debian GNU/Hurd

Introduction

The Hurd is a set of servers running on top of the GNU Mach microkernel. Together they build the base for the GNU operating system.

Currently, Debian is only available for Linux and kFreeBSD, but with Debian GNU/Hurd we have started to offer GNU/Hurd as a development, server and desktop platform, too. (...)

Arch Hurdhttps://www.archhurd.org/


This is the Hurd. Welcome.

Welcome to the Arch Hurd website. Arch Hurd is a derivative work of Arch Linux porting it to the GNU Hurd system with packages optimised for the i686 architecture.

Our goal is to provide an Arch-like user environment (BSD-style init scripts, i686-optimised packages, use of the pacman package manager, rolling-release, and a KISS set up) on the Hurd which is stable enough for use, if not as a primary OS, at least as something to consider as a dual-boot option.

Currently we provide a LiveCD for users to install or try Arch Hurd for themselves, and provide an installation guide covering its use, as well as an alternate installation guide for users for whom the LiveCD is not an option, for whatever reason.

We are attempting to bring the spirit of Arch Linux to the Hurd, and if you'd like to help us achieve that, we'd love to hear from you on the mailing lists or IRC. (...)

There are several different ways to run a GNU/Hurd system:

Xen - In Xen
Live CD

cloud - In the "cloud": OpenStack
chroots need a couple of tricks to work properly.
VirtualBox - In VirtualBox
