Different to what? Is that a random list of MS tech or is it supposed to prove something?

Well install a fucking Linux or fucking FreeBSD then.
Hey, if it's good enough for Google....
You might want to take a look at your keyboard, it seems to randomly capitalize stuff.
Why? Lots of people work more than one job, doesn't make them self employed.
We need eugenics, quick!!!
Yeah, we really need to breed more killjoys and stick-in-the-muds!
Someone needs to tell Google, because currently there's one drunken death in 2014 and another couple of drunken ones in 2009. Nothing about people getting stuck in the mud and drowning though, just stuck in the mud and rescued...
Still, it's a good story!
First generation pokemon games were released in Japan in 1996. That's 20 years ago. I wouldn't hold your breath.....

(To be fair, it's cow calf puke, only a human would look at that and go "smack it on a cracker!")
Too angry about M$ douchebaggery to get to the quote from Google at the bottom of the article?
"the panel decided not to reward this report financially .... It qualified for the credit though – you'll appear in a Google Hall of Fame"
That's your answer to everything. It's a shit answer.
That's not stupidity, that's bowing to public opinion. They'd be stupid not to pick the most popular candidate, however mental he may be.
In Visual Studio I just select the lines I want commented and click the comment button. That gives me a consistent comment style (appropriate to the language being edited) with zero effort.
Isn't there a similar feature for Linux devs?
But this wasn't a rant about the content of the comments, it was about the structure of the comments tags. If the comment is useful but the format is slightly different to the other comments what difference does it make?
Yeah, they spin stuff in a lefty way, but personally I find that quite refreshing, and there's no reason to treat the 36% figure as being any more accurate than the 70% quoted in the Canary, which was the original point I was making.
I normally read the Guardian and Daily Mail websites for general news (and listen to Radio 4, obv.), the Canary is much more tabloid (and left wing) than the Guardian, but still not as mental as the Mail.
I take the lot with the same pinch of salt.
Keep repeating a falsehood and eventually it becomes true.
I realise that looking at an actually left wing news source might be painful, but there are links in the article to the sources at Sky, which may make it easier to stomach.
Or read the original tweet https://twitter.com/SkyData/status/746701717299924992 and the comments below pointing out it's a guess.
Will they though? These are people who decided they didn't like the built in browser on their phone and downloaded another. The people that "just put up with it" are running Chrome already.
".Not". Priceless. You OPEN sourcers are _SO_ funny!
I bet your IDE will be loads better THAN Visual Studio!! Can't _WAIT_ to start using it!!
Is it case sensitive?
For it not be MS, obviously!
Because I wasn't sure what "All tools required to go from bare metal to deployed artefact" meant. I inferred it meant that the deployment environment must also be open source, when what you meant was that the compiler needs to be open source (which makes perfect sense, how else can you guarantee that what comes out the end is based on what went in?)
So what's in question here is the build process for these .Net artefacts. The article isn't 100% clear but it seems to indicate that you can build on Linux, but it doesn't say explicitly that the build tool chain is Open Source. Looking on GitHub though (https://github.com/Microsoft/dotnet/blob/master/README.md) it looks like the compiler (Roslyn) is up there, so I guess this does count as "proper" Open Source.
And you're sure it says: All tools required to go from bare metal to deployed artefact are available in source form to J Random User.
So Libre Office isn't Open Source because I can run it on Windows? Or Libre Office is Open Source because I can run it on Linux?
Ah, proper open source, as opposed to what? Is the source code of the MS stuff not available? Is it under a licence you don't like?
Until all Android devices start getting security updates like iOS devices do Android will always be less secure, whatever makes it's way into the app store.
Why is it only looking at the picture from a camera? Shouldn't there be some kind of object sensing sonar/radar that bounces off trucks of any colour?
Basing automatic driving on a single mechanism seems incredibly stupid, however clever the image processor is...
You're referring to the push to move Euro Clearing into the Eurozone, yeah? Rather than having all their currency move through London. Seems more like common sense than being sly.
No, though the Europeans are making it clear that we can't keep the relationship we currently have, where free trade goes with free movement of people. Whether they'll stick to that will come down to the negotiations I guess. If they desperately want to trade with us they'll come to a deal, if they think they can get the trade they need and charge us a bit of tax on the way, they'll do that. Don't forget there's political pressure from the EU to not make this too easy for us else it'll encourage other breakaway states.
A quick Google reveals that, as usual, this is massively more complex than it originally sounds: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_trade_areas_in_Europe No wonder Dave ran as soon as he realised what he'd been lumbered with sorting out....
The 7 has two custom audio chips (AK 4490 and AK 4961) typically found in more dedicated portable music players. I found that interesting.
The NHS isn't a business, it doesn't generate any revenue. No matter how efficient you make it it won't turn a profit.....
To stop immigration and give the NHS £350 million a week.
Ever get the feeling you've been had?
Yet we're supposed to believe that the EU won't be biased against us during exit negotiations.
As Stewart Lee said about voting UKIP, "like shitting your hotel bed as a protest against bad service, then realising you now have to sleep in a shitted bed."
" if the UK wants to ensure that it is not at a disadvantage in the global marketplace, it would likely need to adopt European rules wholesale, while not being in a position to influence their development."
That's an ideal solution to what, precisely? Having some influence?
Why is it that the mental ones always randomly capitalise stuff?
Of course, if there were linuxes that autoran js, the fault would be with the user stupidly opening unsolicited attachments not the OS.
I'm a coder, not a sys admin, so it's not really a question of my competency, but thanks for the explanation.
That's easy for you to say!
What does it mean?
Hang on. This is a service designed to run downloads when the network isn't particularly busy. Rather than embed this behaviour into the multiple client services MS used one service. That is exactly how it should've been done, a download service that is used by the things that need downloads and aren't in a rush. Isn't this a mantra of the linux "do it properly" people? Do one thing well?
Besides which, as this "exploit" requires Admin priveliges to get started, it's not an exploit at all. At least that's what I'm always told about Android and Linux "exploits".....
It's easy enough to use table layouts via css without lying in the markup and having table tags for things that aren't tables. It's certainly messy if you're defining most of your styles with css but some crucial formatting in html. It's about separation of concerns, it's difficult to argue that mixing concerns in better.
The drive towards making HTML describe it's content is a sensible one and putting everything in a table, though quick, doesn't help in this respect. It's certainly shortsighted when it comes to disabled users and alternative rendering mechanisms.
"Say, nice internet site you have here. Fancy paying us to put you at the top of the list when people search for "The register"? You don't? Oh well, maybe some other tech news sites would like to pay us to go at the top of the list when people search for "The register"..... Well yes, I suppose that could impact on your discoverablilty but that isn't my problem. Of course, american express would do nicely!"
The EU are the racketeers?
It sounds to me like your point is that the iPad pro is a pointless product that business doesn't want. Like the article says...
Harvard research shows China astroturfs, not by arguing against things but by distraction and misdirection. Commentards rush to point out that all companies do this, though they can't seem to show any research to back this up.
50 cents a post you say?
It's not because Google think it's too difficult, or too likely to cause bugs, it's them using their metrics to decide it's not worth the effort for the tiny number of users using it.
As other posters have mentioned on other threads, that logic is ok for 1 or 2 features, but once you start to apply it to 100s of features then the 0.5% of your users that you've inconvenienced with each change becomes 50% of your total users who you've pissed off for no good reason.
According to a comment above firefox lets you configure what the backspace key does, if that's any help.
Ok! Who took Neil's delete key? No one leaves this forum until he's got it back!!
Move along? Discussion over is it? They added a phone home to chrome for every backspace navigation and that's OK because it's mentioned on the development forum? If this was MS they would be getting the shortest shrift ever, but it's Google so it's OK? They track you around nearly all of the web with GA, a little specific phoning home is no biggie...
Government representation on the board is a terrible idea. The BBC is frightened of the government enough as it is. To involve the government at that level would be then end of the BBC.
Oh, sorry, is that what you were getting at?
Yeah, with a posting history like that it's clear this is an opinion to value!
