At least it didn't drop a Fifth Element...
"50% of Americans are incapable of learning.
They don't need to.
Their Conservative political ideology tells them exactly how the world works."
And the other half doesn't need to either.
They believe the Government we take care of everything that it feels they might need to know.
And if you aren't in the States, you are probably basing your opinion off of your state run media.
"The head of the FBI issued dire warnings of children dying if the crypto trend was allowed to continue."
So... kids weren't dying before we had encryption?
Comcast that is.
We did have TWC in Memphis until about 2007(?) and Comcast cam in and screwed it all up.
systemd is a fad and they will drop it in Linux kernel 5.0
They do office moves at the company we maintain the IT infrastructure for so that the cubicle surfaces get cleaned at least once a year.
That's my theory anyway. Can't really see a productivity increase after the move.
Mines the one with the doctors note excusing me from manual labor due to a "bad back"...
No, I don't dual boot. Why would I want to torture myself like that?
IF I need Windows, I use the work laptop and then, I swap out the HDD with a plain Jane install of 'dows on it because of all the restrictions those tw@'s put on tier implementation.
Otherwise, it's ran virtual.
Oh, wait... This isn't Windohs...
Charge China for my bandwidth usage since Comcrap has me under a cap?
That is, providing that I've been hit?
When the Freedom Box lands?
TH\his is another reason to use no script. And maybe uninstall Java...
that happen in the CEO's office that shouldn't be allowed on the showroom floor either...
Our (pre)pubescent coding overloards.
Now I think about it, that sounds creepy...
"but those flaws then often go on to compromise the underlying OS."
That's like blaming Ford or Chevy when your crown air freshener stops working or flies out of the back window and hits you in the head during a sudden stop.
Yes they are stupid. Stupid for paying MS for their license bullying.
"I know - and there was me thinking the entire business and gaming world ran on it. Whatever was I thinking."
Only because the Great Unwashed are to fecking stupid to demand better.
Games? Those are for consoles.
Besides, Linux has games and getting more by the day.
The tide is turning.
MS's shit is still shit.
Seriosly, as long as you can read it, why the hell do you need all of the MS bullshit?
Between ABP, NoScript, Ghostery and running my on private DNS at home with a blackhole list a mile long for everything either ad related or googley-tracking I hate like hell to be off my network, or worse yet, on someone else PC and have to close a thousand pop-ups and see annoying ads on youtube and the like.
So why doesn't Obummer just make the Gov and ISP?
It could be managed by the Communications and Information Alliance along with the Network and Systems Administrators.
Any one that you don't know must sign an affidavit to the effect that they are who they say they are and if it turns out they are not, bring them up on criminal charges. Starting with trespassing, but this would only apply to your personal property (house/business).
"I know Americans don't get irony, but when you moan about the 1%, you do realise you are the 1%, right?"
It's all perspective. Our 1% is different from yours (if you aren't in the US). And that being the case, it's all the third world to us.
"It's a woman who has just found your secret porn stash and is holding it in her hands and with that disapproving look, she doesn't look best pleased..."
If your woman is doing her job, you don't need porn.
"Say hello to the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss"
This shit needs to end now.
I refuse to use Google and their services and it galls me when I see all the Google tools that Ghostery and NoScript block when I go to a web site.
But I can't give up Youtube and I can't stand that Google owns them and jacked up my user account to try and tie it to Google+
Once they said that 11.2.x was going to be the last version for Linux, they ceased to exist.
"windows does not need to die, it just needs the proper attention."
And by proper attention, I am assuming you mean a wipe and reload of Linux.
"A pair of 3D ski glasses eclipsed Windows 10 at Microsoft’s next-generation event..."
So it IS just smoke an mirrors.
I can't say that I wont end up with some poor piece of unsuspecting hardware with Windows 10 installed on it, but I can say I will actively refuse it for as long as I can. I didn't buy into the shite that Windows 8.x is and only recently have been using W7 (mostly at work).
I hope that this OS is as big a flop as Vista/W8 was/is. Microsoft really just needs to give up and make a GUI for Linux. And give it away to the general public.
at this game.
Get enough people running their own deauth campaign as to make the hotels wireless useless and you'll get a riot started.
Can I have my up vote back? I thought you were joking, but looking at the rest of the herds comments I'm beginning to think you are being serious. Gotta get my lemming on.
That, or they REALLY can't take a joke (much like Windows Fanboi's).
“Windows 10 is Microsoft’s make-or-break operating system and Microsoft needs to do everything it can to k̶i̶c̶k̶-̶s̶t̶a̶r̶t̶ ̶a̶d̶o̶p̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ guarantee dependence on its low quality drug”
There, fixed it for
Stop dicking around trying to make an operating System, just build a GUI for the Linux kernel. You know you want to.
I was thinking almost exactly that with Netflix and Linux. I CAN watch Netflix via an ugly hack using WINE and Silverblight (yeech).
I would prefer not to.
Is there a corresponding problem for Windows? If not, can we make one? :D
Oh, wait... there is one. It's called Windows...
"...the legal language around telecommunications."
If ISP's fall under telecommunications, according to the MPAA, then Net Nuetrallity has won.
Some one tell the FCC and Comcrap...
just issue a command to all the Cisco routers that will cut N. Korea off from the rest of the Interwebz? Cause, you know, they have that backdoor in all USA made kit...
Mines the one with the copies of David Icke's books on tape in the pocket...
and nuke them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Our Unix guru set it up where we had a boot and root floppy and the reset was on (if I remember correctly) a QIC-40 tape... Might have been an 80... God help me...
The author of the story just might be a Wintard... But I'll have to check.
Linux *will* rule the world. Someday.
we need to start using mesh networks that no one controls.
"What happens if your brian is having a challenging day?"
Then you shouldn't be posting on the internet Mr. President...
"RIGHT, I AM DIRECTING YOU TO ENSURE THAT YOUR ASSISTANT GETS THIS LETTER TOMORROW."
Simon could have given it to the PFY on said tomorrow at 11:59 PM and still been within the directive.
'that use "elaborate tax structures" to avoid paying tax'
That is the domain of Government employees and elected officials...
just as much as the next geek, but c'mon, 'the root nerd'?
Love it!! It fits my users to a T.
I thought it had already had a well deserved agonizing death....
"What the hell did the rest of the self righteous humourless politically correct granola eating idiots do for humanity today?"
You left out 'Godless'.
That point and click systems admining is not infact hard.
Maybe he'll learn programming next and make a virus to kill Microsft.
One can dream.
My advice: make your choice Linux and stick to it. - There, fixed it for you.
