It's not mandatory unless your workplace dictates so.
Anyone could do a better job than Ballmer.
The real reason it was banned was because the operator was not wearing the correct PPE!
@ Steven Raith:
Because I love getting up at 0530 to get to the office at 9am.
Perhaps there is a hidden agenda that they want you to remain at work!
All night meetings followed by working breakfast, lunch & dinner
Think of the productivity?
It may not offer any great improvement and may be a let down, like Safari is on a Mac - thats just my opinion
But it would be nice to have the choice to run it.
Spartan is designed to work with Windows 10, so it won't run on non-Windows platforms – continuing Microsoft's policy on browsers.
Down vote me to hell, but it would be nice to see support for OSx & Linux or do they get fired for even mentioning them?
Or is single OS badly too much trouble?
or is this the start of two tier treatment?
smacks of 'your vital treatment is only available if we can flog your medical history...'
Absolutely disgrace & thankful I no longer reside in dis united kingdom.
I was typing an email in French this morning, C&P the results as its handy at adding accents etc,
'A tout a l'heure' came out completely wrong, so no surprises here.
If snow on the windscreen was the only problem, then why didn't he just pull over somewhere safe and clear the snow off the bonnet?
Because he is a Volvo driver
Some years ago I had to show an MCSE how to map a network drive at the command line, oblivious that it could also be achieved using the GUI at the time, but since when was that quicker.
Spot on, couldn't have put it better myself.
One upvote isn't enough have a pint, its Friday
'Protect & Survive' ?
And the dog,
'My dog has died, come and revive it while I make tea' one memorable support call
Is it 2016 already or have I been watching too much 'Back to the future' ?
I also have regular meetings at 6 pm my time, which are attended by myself & Claude,
We go to his or my cave for a petit verre du vin or a Pineau or two & its wonderful that technology has no place in this & never will.
Quite how Microsoft manage to fuck up something so simple as time is beyond me.
Somewhat like the horrid term 'working lunch' - no thanks, Id rather go hungry.
Beeching diddnt close anything, he wrote the reports for the government.
When 50% of station receipts provided just 2% revenue and losses of £300,000 a day, something has to change.
Then he can turn to the MS/reseller rep and say "Hi, I'm Roy you know where the door is, so fuck off."
It exerts greater pressure on those with stretched budgets to look elsewhere.
But when they dont agree, their only solution is to kill people.
Why dont they bin support for Windows 8 instead? they could do it tomorrow & annoy a lot less people.
he's not dead, he's pining, pining for the fjords!
I tell free loaders for support to stick it behind the rear wheel of my Landrover so I can reverse over it, that'll fix it good an proper... the conversation usually switches to a different subject fairly quickly.
Yes, he was a good guy, not so sure if they have any left now.
I used W2000 as my mainstream desktop OS until 2011, it did the job & never went wrong
Cant say that about their later offerings.
But Microsoft probably pay people to report otherwise.
She like a pearl necklace that's for sure :D
Ofcom? I had to think for a moment, what do they really do?
Anyway, Im sure its pats on the back and massive pension pot to boot
https://ie.microsoft.com is untrusted so I clicked 'get me out of here'
The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.azurewebsites.net, *.scm.azurewebsites.net, *.azure-mobile.net, *.scm.azure-mobile.net
For the company they proclaim to be or at least once were, its a joke they cant even do that properly.
MPs need to learn how to serve the electorate & run the country as opposed to lining their own pockets at every opportunity.
I do think we do need reform with our computer crime laws.
I think we need to reform all our serious criminal laws, whilst the hacker gets 'life', the murderers & so on get a relatively short term.
The auto-route is best & most roads are as good, a few through the villages are not so good as funding changes but work is on-going. Even our ancient Land Rover does reasonable MPG.
We seldom see potholes where as in the UK its a continual challenge to avoid them & driving your side of the tunnel in Kent is like crossing a ploughed field.
Driving at higher speeds on the auto route 130 Km/hr economy drops to 39.8 MPG, otherwise its low forties - UK government wont fix the roads because it gains more tax if they take more fuel.
That made me smile.
The other problem with trying to achieve good MPG in the UK is the roads, a poor road surface increases rolling resistance reducing MPG. Every car Ive owned over the last 30 years improves its MPG once were on our way home.
For example our current car returns 33-35 MPG in UK which changes to 40-44 MPG in France, same car same fuel & more or less same temperature until were south of the Loire. Down vote me to hell, but the roads in the UK really do need fixing.
April 1st ?
& unfortunately its spreading here in France, 10 years ago one would hardly see a fatty, but now theyre all too common, along with the cancerous spread of Mc Donalds, not so 'diet' coke, Subway etc.
If I was fat, to be honest, Id prefer people to shout "oi fat bastard..." because it might give me some impetus to do something about it.
Thankfully there's no political correctness here either, but I despair, one day it will happen.
The engineer in charge will have most certainly got their hands dirty during their career, you can't expect subordinates to do a proper job unless you've done it your self, know & understand it.
“Office Word, Excel and PowerPoint should be free and built into Windows 10, this would tempt people away from Chromebooks and Mac”
Still wouldnt use them even if they were free, my daughter dislikes them with a passion after Office 2012 was forced upon her laptop. So down-vote away but its my opinion.
Probably maps all your possessions for ad slinging at your browser or whatever else you have connected to 'tinterwebs.
X is the Roman numeral for 10 hence: Windows X
The less irritating distractions the better.
Same Old Shit,
Different GUI all fucked up so some 'certified' training provider can charge your company a fortune to tell you how to do what you already know.
The donkeys years old problem with the last three ie someexecutable.pdf.exe should have been fixed years ago as well.
Some of this traffic was attributed to the tragic death of Robin Williams - RIP.
But it looks like Microsoft are going to deliver something people actually want, just the sort of phone to have in the car for emergencies if the battery lasts 36 days on standby for example.
Will it be warm in winter for my cat to sleep on?
He never goes near my MBP cos its too cool.
in the UK or North Korea ?
Glad I left the dis-united kingdom
That Microsoft have junked
It would be great if they threw all versions of IE away
What took you so long to work that one out?
Do well if you could config it to look like 2000, XP, Vista or 7 chez classic shell
