It's more Gnib than Bing
I.e., Google Now Is Bing.
And if wishes were horses . . .
. . . we'd all be eating steak. You can believe whatever you want, unless you want to believe the truth, and the truth seems to be that codecs are software, therefore patentable.
I like the downvotes
Indicates that the Linux groupthink is still in full effect. Someone requires something of Linux that it doesn't offer or support? They must be spreading FUD! It can't possibly be the case that Linux doesn't have or do what they want!
It's a shame
that you can't read (or spell).
<typical Linux fanboy>
This is obvious FUD. You must enjoy circling Ballmer's $haft with your lips. As everyone knows, Ubuntu has everything you could possibly need out of the box, therefore you must be lying! Go troll somewhere else, Trolly McTrollerton!
Back under your bridge.
I'll believe it when I see it
How about a UI that doesn't look like it was designed by a furry-toothed geek? Will they have that? Will I be able to install arbitrary (non-repo) software without having to go to a shell prompt as root? Obviously, I won't be able to run any of my existing software, but I'm sure useless 2.0rhea crapola and an iTunes ripoff will make it all better.
Cry, fanboi, cry
Your tears, while not delicious, are amusing.
"I don't even use . . ."
In keeping with the traditions of The Reg Luddite Brigade(TM), I don't even use Wi-Fi (presumably some sort of modern iteration of a sound system) or even Ethernet, as that is a far more modern and therefore inferior technology than what I'm used to. Rather, I prefer the "pigeon and a piece of string" network, wherein my pigeon receives a tiny electric shock when I press a key, causing it to tug a piece of string, which then pulls a wire on the far end of the house, closing a contact and illuminating a light, thus alerting my batsman that I would like him to perform a task such as write a letter or smoke me a kipper. There is clearly something wrong with anyone who would bother with a more modern, or indeed different, approach (see also: Facebook, smartphones, versions of Windows later than 2000). I'll stick with my "ancient" technology, thank you very much!
Whereas . . .
. . .you are clearly from the land of NeedlessPedantryLandia. Many people refer to the USA as "America" and to its residents as (wait for it) "Americans." Thank you for playing, now back to your cave.
There's no need to Godwin the comments this early.
Once more, for the record ...
If this comment is the present of commentardism (yes, it's a real word--due to a series of ubiquitous misprints, you can find it in the dictionary right after "gullible"), then *I* feel very sad.
Allow me to mock you roundly
That's it, really.
I was going to do a comparison of such relevant search terms as "shitmantec," "lotus notes sucks," and "opera fanboy scat porn," but it turns out that Bing is not currently returning search results at all.
Give in to the hate, embrace the Dark Side
"[I]ts market share is in decline thanks to strong competition from Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and others."
Wow, relegating Opera to the "and others" category should earn you some blazing hatred. Hope you're wearing your asbestos underwear!
As usual, the Opera users have no idea what AdBlock and NoScript actually *do*. They're not built in.
Christ, not this shit again
As has been pointed out repeatedly here and elsewhere, Vista and 7 do not use IE to perform updates. Moran.
Caveats notwithstanding . . .
. . . I await the stampede of froth-mouthed penguinistas stumbling over one another to deride Microsoft and Windows.
If it weren't for the inverse-square law, you'd have some kind of valid point.
Darn those technical terms
Perhaps you should check the dictionary before commenting. No, no, I'll do it. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fuze
Actually . . .
Given Opera's ~1% desktop market share, I'd say Microsoft's decision to develop IE 7 and 8 can be squarely attributed to the success of Firefox, with Chrome adding some Johnny-come-lately pressure these days.
