clamping down on criticism of Windows
....likely to suck all the oxygen out of the room.
Clearly a Blair Bug.
How much other stuff has been 'deprecated' that is actually still out there, still in use, still burnt in to code and still vulnerable?
There are a couple of "languages" named according to the third letter of the alphabet, for starters. They were shit in the late 80s.
"the video drivers are on the kernel too"
We need to stay stupid because we started off stupid.
How does the system or the web browser select the Java version to launch though?
That massive kernel sitting there? USE IT! (Throws chair)
Yes, even if Pink Floyed whined about it like Che-Tee-wearing 99 percenters.
Sadly, she looked at it as a passing fad which would divert me from studying the necessary literary skills needed for a glorious career of a taxpayer-sponsored track-to-a-vested-pension to be be lived in large office blocks.

Listen gramps, maybe you really should get into version control and distributed repos?
the Korean government made Redmond's software a requirement for online shopping and banking
An arse in charge and the taxpayer and his monies are soon parted.
I sure hope the Indjuns and Pajis have no Windows control on their non-PALed nukes...
Can you give me a CVE number on that?
"the US has a Bank Holiday"
You know it is not really a "Holiday", it was meant to make it impossible for the hoi polloi to drain the cash out of the banks because "fractional reserves, lol!"
...unless it really was him, that is.
He could open the "Bitcoin Café (apparently)". Might be a hit.
but funnily enough the servers don't run PowerPoint
I can tell you a story about what I saw on Teamviewer the last time I opened the Forbidden Doors of the Control Room...
I think CHOAM may have a word to say about that, unless you have serious support from the rather foppish and ineffectual Landsraad.
And who thought it was a good thing to launch bash when invoking one program from another?
Uhh.... your levels of abstraction are weak.
bash is another program. Welcome to the Universal Turing Machine.
...the worm is on the other foot?
OM NOM NOM NOM.
Where did the article disappear to for 24h?
Yet another backhand move by Weyland-Yutani, the Koch brothers of SPAAACE?
Did someone forget a commodore PET in the spacestation?
If there is a future, it will have the full white of the Matrix default interface for sure.
Anger is only now becoming apparent
Any OS worth its salt is not karmically bound to whatever kind of filesystem. What's wrong with people?
Someone gave him a rabbit that had been sprung from an animal lab
"Enjoy your Ebola."
The great thing is that these wildlife springers are exactly the people that complain that ultra-cheap safe drugs are not being dropped en masse on outbreak areas, probably because "no profits in this".
Care to explain why it should not be done for profit?
Profit can be recycled. This is good.
"I am shocked"
Liberal guilt: Like a permanent concentration camp fence.
Here is hoping the ATM hasn't been p0wned and the war on cash won't accelerate because of "terrorists", "missed tax opportunities" and "thinking of the children".
Well they would be basically protecting their respective economies.
Will you maybe just LOOK at the curves of national debt, money printed and "jobs created" outside of taxpayer-funded sectors?
Nobody in charge gives a flying FUCK about "protecting their respective economies".
Public choice theory: The people in charge are not there to help you. They are there so that they can enlarge their mansion. And probably for the lulz.
ELECTRICITY out there in "empty" space?
ENERGO PRUBLEMS solved in a single BOLD stroke.
When the hapless space probe approaches, a GALACTIC ROCHER addy will unfold in space, to the amazement of billions.

I'm glad to say the word sheeple wasn't in common currency back when I was modding. Otherwise I think I'd have banned everyone who used it.
Typical modhouse behaviour. Banhammer for telling the truth meanwhile lures to CP sites and carder forums, random Fox News shit or outright Nazi and/or Israeli bullcrap gets the A-OK for being "politicial talk" (Honest-to-$DEITY Nazis have to be morse subtle thought and must not cite Goering or Hitler outright, so they are at a little disadvantage here)
You already encounter them EVERY FUCKING DAY in the labyrinthine depths of STATE BUREAUCRACY.
And this is why I am for full liberalization of firearms. Full liberalization.
Linux users asking on 4chan: Not gonna end well.
> we want all companies to stop making false/misleading adverts then Red Bull are fair game
Have you even seen the false adverts for Obamacare? It's practically along the lines of "Be a crack whore, have fun. You will get a free liver thrown in later".
But then again, it's not a company, so I guess it's all-ok.
> fake cherry
Too young to ever have chewed on "Hubba Bubba" chewing gum?
> What Red Bull should be wary of
Yep. Personal responsibility. The taking of. It has been flushed down the drain by progressivism.
I just hope Red Bull gives him the cancer he deserves, and to his ambulance-chasing lawyers and all the other leeches too.
but has an underlying message that this is some kind of sports drink and by consuming it you will improve your performance
I have never seen anyone drink Red Bull to improve his "athletic performance" unless 48h gaming marathons and alcohol-fuelled night club autotorture counts for this.
But then again, I'm generally living in Europe. $DEITY knows what Murricans believe.
Whit the US sliding faster than ever down the slope of a US version of National-Socialism (today in the news: More wars, More economic regimentation, Obamacare still "a success story", NSA youth camps for snooping on neighbors, calls for a Muslim "final solution" and across-the-baord calls to end 'underfunding' of the military), "LOST SCIENCE!" seems to become a problem of a somewhat lower priority.
In a visit to California, US President Obama has reiterated support for full net neutrality, but said it wasn't something he could do anything about.
So he supports something he has no idea about what it is but cannot do anything about it?
He should go back wrecking the economy with liberal narcissistic bullshit, bombing random points on a map, surveilling everyone or maybe whip up wars with Russia, China, Syria, Yemen and god-knows-what-else.
Well, that's the case of 99% of the IT "industry". For some values of "works", often handled by "you do have a backup, don't you?" recovery efforts.

Cue scary Stephen King movie music.
Set cultists to RUN!
What's wrong with people?
Rename to C3P0script.
Will The Estate of George Lucas strike back? Well, there is a caching library called C3P0 already, so probably not.
Why not implement a rule or two?
Nothing wrong in HR that cannot be solved with Going Postal Event.
Better use the nucular option!
"Are the techies on here not aware of how bad it is or are they just apathetic?"
I don't know, but I'm now off for a slight buzz of ethanol and immersive game playing.
It is the only way to cope.
> the several fundamental security shortcomings in Linux
> puts an extra wrapper on them.
You better get yourself a manual and start reading.
It is a difficult beast and needs maintenance and package-level support.
But ... no Perl? I don't see this. This is like saying "no programs on this machine, so we are secure". Well, yes, but that's not the goal at all.
A person who has
“Exceptional Java, C# or C++, object oriented design and programming skills”
“Solid understanding of data structures, concurrency and algorithms.”
Yeah, I know those. "Code now, cry later (which someone else doing the crying)" people who are best kept away from the keyboard until they know what they are doing. Easy to find, problematic to

Try going to the SUSE and Redhat websites and looking - they are more expensive than equivalent Windows Server versions.
Yeah, as someone once said: "Do you think people would just go on the Internet and tell lies? Why would anyone do that?"
Your statement makes no fscking sense because Linux is a challenger not the king of the hill demanding tribute and every house's daughter for a test drive. So Linux packaging and support-providing outfits will be in the general ballpark of Microsoft pricing, thought a few hundred per year less.
According to Red Hat quite a few hundred per year less. I'm sure you can come up with better numbers, mister grassroots:
"Based on these numbers, the five-year cost of ownership for the proposed eight-server solution would be $47,960 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and $119,594 for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2." etc. etc.
Pricing statements about "Linux is dear, oh dear" have a nasty tendency to come out of the Dungeon of Redmond exclusively and/or you can smell the money trail from a mile away (cough *Gartner* cough).
Course, getting the users to actually accept a system that looks dangerously hot-rodded at times is something else entirely.
