Do MS do the BIOS, too?
Federal Bureau of Intimidation.
Bloody Stasi wannabes.
"We would be praising them."
Who you calling 'we' paleface? </Tonto>
"It can't be an enjoyable department to work in."
Why shouldn't they suffer too?
"I've moved several ex-friends to Win10 on purpose..."
without getting eaten.
And people still give them money.
I know winX is free. So is the clap- but easier to avoid.
Don't forget the half-dozen or so HP(?) programmable calculators velcro'ed onto the dashboard to show the next AOS* for the approaching ground stations when orbiting.
* Aquisition of Signal- when the next Big Dish comes up over the horizon and can be used.
Non-working props? I suppose they count as 'market share'.
And have more apps...
"Yep. Windows 10 Mobile is Betamax to Android's VHS."
Haha. Betamax was good. And people bought it.
Try again- oh, no, don't bother...
Then, eventually, sank without trace.
lots of Golf Sale ads! Gotta check them all out!
Read the post- 'ex-cops' is a clue to the clueless.
Why can't bent ex-cops? (rental or otherwise).
I'm tired of seeing AC trolls flaunt their filthy addiction in public. It's a disgusting habit as is smoking.
Bullshit happens all the time.
It's not "ITIL"
It's PHB Wank.
A Mr Stark, would have been priceless.
"As for the plastic driving license, I have actually seen one though it was not mine. I only have a pink and green paper job that I got for free and have never had to pay to renew it."
Wait. Once it next expires, they will charge, and it will be a plastic one.
Citizen- your licence to drive has been (suddenly) revoked. You are now a criminal. Step away from the car and kneel.
That 'Beluga' pic would look better with a number '2' on the tails- and a dark green with yellow piping paintjob.
Mine has the keys to Fab 1 in it...
"How do you supply corrected results after two years without a new blood sample?"
New data: Sample donor is dead.
Theranos, meet Thanatos.
the Oracle! (TM)
The answer is of course 'Scream and Leap'.
Then eat their brain.
"I wonder if these "police bosses" are confident enough to put their bank details in the same place?"
Probably. Worrying, isn't it?
Should be ok as long as they stay out of Salford.
"You do realise, Dread Pirate Man,that if you do make a lot of copies of Steamboat Willie, you will go to jail, and One will probably be dead when you come out. Stop smirking, Charles!"
"We have already been through this numerous times, and on each occasion you have been shown how each example can get an Enterprise license."
Well, put your cash where your mouth is, and offer to pay the SMBs for it.
+1 Internet for 'Excited States'
Have a pint.
"Hello, Microsoft Tech Support- how may I help you today?"
"My computer has just upgraded itself to Windows 10 and ..."
"Don''t forget 'methinks'."
Nothing wrong with 'methinks' as such. However, almost every comment post on any forum that starts or contains the phrase "I think..." usually proves the opposite to be true in very short order, methinks.
Nah- extend the Turner prize to space debris, and watch Emin* and Hurst* knock themselves out over it. Might get a nice ring out of it.
Oh, and they can stay up there to polish it.
*Other random 'Artists' are available...
" I suppose you were one of the cheerleaders for Segway when it was announced, too?"
And I suppose that you are over 150 and were afraid that steam power would kill us all.
See- I can 'suppose', too. Now I shall also get off your lawn.

Is everyone just waiting for the new Fall of Rome?
Oh wait! X-Factor is on!!!
"In the longer term though, I wonder if a feature-rich OS such as Windows is going to be relevant,"
Keep waiting- it's losing more and more features with every 'update'.
A bit like 'The world's fastest runner! (That showed up at the race).
Eee, but t'years wer much longer in t'old days...
Welcome to the future. Or the present, forever.
Give the 'grants' (tax money) to someone who actually intends to spend it on infrastructure, not TV sport.
Not just now- it's Owl Stretching Time.
"...something that your granny can use without having to phone you every two minutes."
Not Windows, then.
No, but it thinks it is.
"But do they recognise jokes when they see them?"
Unless they are the ones they keep writing and foisting on poor PCs, then maybe...
Here it comes again! Grit your teeth...
Taxi for Mr Poe?
They did- but they are stuck in Exchange.
Also- 'Beware of a programmer carrying a screwdriver'
"Microsoft make a number of truly fantastic technologies and they are legitimately at the cutting edge of a number of hybrid cloud technologies."
...I see the problem. Clouds shouldn't have cutting edges!
