We're past ordinary software misteriously freezing on you as if it were the most natural thing to do. Now, GNOME freezes so badly I need to *reset* twice a week a Linux box I usually reset, like, never.
The EU says it wants Europeans to engage with it: now that 4 MILLION of them have opposed mass censorship through #Article13, will they listen?
