That would be why Google and Amazon are doing it, then (see article).
Interestingly though, we don't get an article and millions "M$ lol" comments about those.
Give me TV full of Welsh, Scottish, Geordies, Scousers, Mancs, Yorkshire, even Brummie... let my kids hear the accents of Britain, not North America.
But not the West Country, eh? Eh? Regionist!
Your disconnect with reality already makes me sad.
Also, "cloud"? microsoft? don't make me laugh
Azure is the operating platform for Apple's iCloud.
Laugh that off.
And they were secure because nobody used them outside of secure premises. Where they transmitted data - like, for example, teletype - they were absolutely NOT secure.
And you're a knob.
Let's try to have a reasoned unbiased approach, unlike politicians and hysterical children.
On the Reg's comment boards?
Good luck with that.
This fits into a picture of making Google working to make Chrome more enterprise-friendly
whatever that means.
Many of those queueing up are Microsoft employees. Queue up or lose your job.
I do not work for Microsoft or any affiliate of theirs.
I have absolute choice of OS's for my personal use and for our current development project.
My choices are - iPad for the Mrs, Lumia 920 for me (perfect hand size), Asus touchscreen ultrabook running Win8. My personal home server is debian.
For work, now that W8 is security certified, we're going with Win8 embedded on 8 inch rugged touchscreens talking to a Windows Server 2012 datacentre running ANPR over four concurrent video streams per vehicle. We made this choice after extensive testing of which form factors our client - they wear a lot of blue - preferred.
In other words, you're wrong and you're an irritating fucking troll.
Sony fanboy detected.
what sort of coffee?
"But it's Windows no sale" would have got at least ten upvotes!
Good luck with your 13 year old car.
No. XP->8 is especially painless from a hardware point of view provided it's got more than 512MB of RAM.
Apps that can run on Wine will run faster than on Windows.
Anyone else smell bullshit?
In 2006 i had a Google Motorola RAZR V3i gold
Twenty quid says you didn't.
It might also bring about a thriving linux malware scene.
linux is not secure by default. A great deal of its security is a factor of not existing on machines people do shopping and banking with. Every SteamOS install backed up by a credit card and Steam account will inevitably reduce the security of linux.
SteamOS combines the rock-solid architecture of Linux with a gaming experience
A gaming experience on linux. With all nine available games and WINE crashing all decent games every twenty-two minutes. Can't wait.
Dammit. I had £5 on the first comment being that they should have gone with Android.
Problem in the tech industry of any description? Roll out the Reg commentard's stock "Should have gone with Android" answer.
Because giving everything to Google solves every problem in history, right?
That she doesn't go home and masturbate with a giant Google logo the way you do?
What a calamity.
Now you've got me trying to reconcile the concept of "gentlemen" with "Eric Schmidt".
Head asplode icon, please.
I found it impossible to publish unmanaged code to the app store. Likewise, when publishing Store apps, they all get compiled against WinRT.
Microsoft aren't selling desktop applications through the App Store, though. They redirect to websites from the program information - you can't just click "install".
As it stands, the Windows Store offers apps for Windows 8 running on PCs with Intel processors and for Windows RT running on devices with ARM chips. Many of the apps in the store will work on both platforms, but not all of them do.
Not entirely true. Anything you can download directly from the store will run on either Win8 or WinRT but anything that redirects you to a website is Win8 only, because those aren't "apps". Those are programs like Office. All of the "apps" in the store work on both platforms because they're actually working against the WinRT API.
@ !Spartacus - don't let it worry you. This what support-script readers know about business studies, that's all. At least they didn't suggest turning the patents off and on again.
Speaking as a Gypsy, it's pretty funny to see this comment, Tapeador. We don't call ourselves Roma when speaking English because that would be acting like a pretentious twat.
For the record, I thought the original "Ann Frank;s drumkit" joke was funny. And as such, "appropriate" doesn't enter into it. You don't have the right to not be offended. You especially don't have any right to be offended for somebody else.
If the somebody else is me, not only do you have no right to be offended on my behalf but I reserve the right to punch you for your assumptions.
What's interesting is that fanbois who have been sneering at plastic items for years seem to have suddenly stopped.
It's pretty safe to assume that anyone who moved to Thailand did not do so for the Apple support.
I only looked at this article because neither the title nor subtitle made any sense at all.
Shame it was boring.
Not when installed under certification conditions, it didn't.
The problem with security is that people let fucktards install and configure software. Under those conditions, nothing is secure. Not even linux. Remember Eadon's blog?
Frankly, that's an idiotic and uninformed opinion. "Master" and "Architect" certs require a whole lot of dedication and understanding of the platforms - as much or more than any Cisco certification, as an example.
Anyone who thinks this is "learning by rote" has never tried it, has no clue of what they're talking about and should shut the fuck up.
Seriously Jake. Talk about what you know and don't talk about what you don't know. It'll help your karma no end.
This would indicate that termites have also ceased to evolve, which does not appear to be the case.
Upvoted for "shitsock".
This is what happens you get a self-selected group of society's natural victims in one place bemoaning their lot when not reading their support scripts to people they despise for living much richer and more full lives than they do. It becomes semi-fascistic. I and my peer-group of second-class degrees and unnatural obsessions with Dr Who assistants should be the only ones allowed to breed! although usually put less honestly in terms of (highly gameable) IQ tests and proficiency with something nobody else in universe gives a shit about, such as Ruby on Rails.
What makes it particularly hilarious is their "educated" opinions. There was a post recently about Hyper-V from some TechEd conference down under. The sheer amount of retarded commentry on it served to finally disabuse me of the notion that the Reg's commentards are of any benefit to anyone at all and point firmly to a state where they should absolutely not be allowed to breed.
Luckily, most never will.
Good, then I won't have to write Java.
If only Casio would release an SDK for their Bluetooth G-Shock.
I'd even pay (reasonable) money for such a thing.
I used to say that about phone apps. I don't anymore because looking out of the window doesn't tell me what to expect when I land in $DESTINATION.
SO much facepalm in this thread.
The stupid.... it burns!
I'm guessing that most of the people here are arrogant enough to reckon they could.
Maybe some of them are right.
Whether they could do that while doubling profits and tripling revenues is a different matter.
Oh well, since you'd say not at all, it must be true!
But what El Reg's legion of script-reading support-drones want is Windows 7.
There is no money to be made from Windows 7.
He went with homeopathy and, like all who have a genuine illness and go with homeopathy, died.
This (faith in homeopathy) would imply that he was an idiot. Or that maybe through long immersion in marketing, he had become susceptible to it.
See me after class.
Good. Also, fuck 'em.
It is, I agree.
But Google+ is also pretty insignificant (except in terms of annoying Google users). Perhaps that's where the equation lies on this one.
•Microsoft is licensing Nokia's really decent mobile mapping services, which will be competition for Google maps.
Fail again for MS, late to market and expensive. Googl's mapping products are mature, free (relatively) and omni-available.
So are Nokia's. HERE Maps is available on iOS and Android as well as WP.
So maybe 3 each.
I would have thought you of all people should be aware of Reg commentards propensity for slating things they've never tried and have no practical knowledge of.
