Hey- I can't edit any more... where's my badge gone???

El Reg is not 99% shit.
Re: Too little, too late ....
Not to burst your bubble, but no-one gives a fuck about Windows anymore.
"how easy it will be to use these new "features"...?"
It will probably require CMD and Powershell and much RegEdit...
It just works.
An impressive selection of features.
I wonder how many will work?
Remember Longhorn. That turned out well.
aren't the Appletwatters getting their knickers in a twist?
O dear how sad, never mind.
There are X10 versions- they need X10 adapters for the power to the lamps though.
Re: I thought it was de criminalised in the uk
Nah- they just changed the subnet mask.
Re: Paper Clip returns
Just Bing for Bong!
Re: Win8 SP1
Maybe it's exactly that, the ability to think sideways.
And scroll sideways!
I think you may be on to something there...
Puff. Puff...Oh wow....look! It does make sense now!!
Re: Another SF scenario in the making
Stand on Zanzibar, by John Brunner. A terrorist/activist attack on a bus- only one fatality, IIRC, whose head was turning when it was severed- the rest, had decaptations that just joined back up due to the thinness of the cut...
Re: dr normal
Wow. Aren't you dull?
Britannia does rule the waves.
But sometimes the waves win.
Re: But 666 is a wonderful number!!
Caustic means it burns- acid or alkali, it doesn't matter.
And don't rely on-
any anti-radiation drugs from those hippies on Skaro- didn't work for Roy Castle...
He killed the Start Button.
But he didn't make sure it was dead, and just like in the movies, it came back and killed him.
"Their customers have not been screaming for a Start Menu."
True. They are Win8 customers, and therefore merely screaming because of that.
This seems rather half-arsed
and I don't think it will satisfy the requirements of the masses.
"Nothing that will convince a kid that's never worn glasses or a band to wear one* - until we stick a half-eaten fruit logo on it?
He's also never heard of sunglasses...
If you do run W8 or another Legacy OS, would that make them LegOS Brix?
Who keeps lifting your rock?
A cross between a Berk and a Cow, perhaps?
Re: Commentards Confess
I confess! Can I have a seat in mine?
Re: If I were Google
If I were Balmer
I'd buy some ARP tin hats and fire buckets...and sandbags.
Re: Primitive Food Replicator
Earl Grey. Hot.
That should do it.
SHINY GLITTERY M$ TURD FAIL!!!
Re: More than half?
"There are more Windows 8 users than Linux on desktop users combined...in my bedroom."

Re: Free from the need to eat solids.
More like the toilet paper manufacturer's wet dream.
Probably give you the shits after about 3 days...
<--- I have a bit of tissue in the pocket, hopefully...
Re:Hopefully no one's working on a Lawgiver like Judge Dredd's that explodes...
Hopefully they are!
Re: There's plenty of room for the OS on Xbox One to be snappier than the OS on PS4

Re: ergo:- Eadon is a machine.
Sent from the future to warn us!
(At least you can be sure he doesn't run Windows.)
Re: Phase IV
Just squirt them with different coloured paint!
Anyone have any idea just what that was about??
The models were wrong? Say it's not so!
GIGO- as true today as it's always been...
The future, as usual, is disappointing...
Space1999- 14 years late and woefully underfunded, was a failure.
Cheaper to wait- £10 for the cart, £10 for the donkey to pull it, £10 for the shovel and £2 for the six survivors to dig out the bits.
It's part of a montage-
Expect jumping, biting and snarling clips next.
Like the title sequences of The Six Million Dollar Man...
Re: Never accuse Murdoch
Of not telling it like he wants you to think it is.
Why, is that what happens to you just as you are about to Bing! ?
Re: It's great when people rush in to show how clever they are and trip over their own shoelaces...
It's cruel to laugh at the afflicted- leave MS developers alone.
Re: 88 Clicks as of 9am this morning...
...probably after one particular bing-head who would have all of the hoops enabled to jump through.
Are they after getting Gates back?
Re: 'You do do evil!' vs "Copyright minster: Google- better access to No 10 than me"
Emerging Markets? You do know that's predator speak for Easy Prey?
Re: Let's see
£5k- that could get you some iPhones for tactical comms...
Re: If the value of yituhxo, the enemy dujey
Isn't that part of the Windows Source Code?
It might explain why nobody can rewrite it...
Re: Oh, come on.
"Proof-of-concept for transliteration engine in a language..."
Proof that you can put any old tosh in a Bing result, and no body will know if it's right or not, nor care...
