He made the said comment in a Weibo post, where-in he also noted that Google's mobile OS has promoted the development of smartphones, which in turn has benefited consumers.

IceCat 38.8.0 release
GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software.

Just getting mv to work in a sane way has proven impossible. I've tried every type of arg, bracket, modifier, shell opt etc.
I'm seriously going to lose my mind... I spent an hour last night and I couldn't even alias a simple mv command. I can't remember the last time I did something that made me almost hate Linux... but this is doing it.submitted by /u/ProtoDong
