City of Munich throws Ubuntu lifeline to Windows XP holdouts

Re: I used to care...

You can try a simulation of how it will be when XP loses support.

Imagine installing XP without any service patches, vanilla XP as released in 2001.

Now connect it to the internet, leave it connected for 24hours no patching allowed.

Now login to all your favourite banking websites one at a time.

Still feeling happy?

Most of these people use XP because of Microsoft's continued support for vulnerabilities/security fixes, even if they're not aware of it.

When that support disappears just watch how quickly people find something secure, the smart ones are already moving.

It's akin to the police closing down the station and moving out of the neighbourhood, sure you can still stay in your house but it's going to become more and more lawless outside your door.

She'll never get board.

100% recycleable.

Much like borrowing a book from a library every reader of your medical file is known and recorded, I'm not worried.

Sony's 40GB PS3 due 28 October?

Mcbain

Pricing parity

I for one will never buy a next gen console until there is pricing parity across the markets, if this console $399 in the States I wouldn't pay more than £199 for it here.

£299 for the 40GB

So if you pop the PS3 from play into your basket with some URL trickery.....
