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.
Sounds like they got . . .
. . . way more than his Lucky Charms.
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!
At a guess...
VMware probably doesn't want to cannibalize their ESX/vCenter sales by making Workstation so powerful that customers no longer need the datacenter-scale hypervisors.
Trust Notes to try to make a software bug a security "feature."
What are you even talking about?
It wasn't Microsoft who put on the "funeral," but an independent party. Try RTFA next time, you cretinous, drooling nincompoop.
As usual, the Opera users have no idea what AdBlock and NoScript actually *do*. They're not built in.
I believe the fail is yours . . .
. . . David Halko.
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.
Except . . .
. . . without AdBlock and NoScript, its usefulness ranges somewhere between a bag of nothing and a glass hammer.
Caveats notwithstanding . . .
. . . I await the stampede of froth-mouthed penguinistas stumbling over one another to deride Microsoft and Windows.
Ban Brits, too . . .
. . . and reduce the number of smug, self-important twats by 90%.
Stop using it, then.
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.
Give it a rest
No one cares. Posting this from Opera and trying to squeeze out the same functionality I get from Firefox. Seriously, I don't know how you guys live with this POS.
The difference . . .
. . . is that the staff of El Reg have a sense of humor.
Whoa . . .
Pardon me while I back away slowly.
Hey, I've seen this wall of text elsewhere! Tear down the wall!
Would have rated it higher but it needs more misspellings and ALL CAPS ranting.
I'm sure you have one, but I'm just not grasping it.
"[T]he Chief of the Defence Staff - Air Marshal Sir Jock Stirrup" -- I think I see part of your problem. There's no way this person can be real, therefore it's clear that the British High Command has been infiltrated by Anonymous or some other group of pranksters determined to throw the military into disarray. Sounds like it's working, too!
Let me be the first . . .
. . . in the inevitable flood of comments which say, "Who even cares? I don't use MyFaceTwitJournal because of a) privacy b) being far too cool c) my massive, engorged, throbbing penis. Ladies, I'm talking to *you*!"
I know, right?
Goddamn critics with their "standards" of "quality." They should be content to sit back with a six-pack of good old American lager and take a break from ESPN with a good old American explosion-fest. Plot? Story? Dialogue? These are for effete, cheese-eating (with the exception of good old American Kraft singles), wine-drinking, arugula-buying, socialistic, probable-homosexual, Obama-electing, limp-wristed, namby-pamby intellectuals. The day will come when we vote from the rooftops, and the movie critics will be the first against the wall!
So what you're saying . . .
. . . is that the lead scientist is from the only European nation renowned for being even more uptight and stodgy than England?
Good luck with that
How often do binary answers work in psychology or indeed physiology?
The analysis is wrong how?
Not sure if serious.
Yes, you are.
So it's really just a repacked (insert your least favorite Unix flavor), then?
At 9.7 inches . . .
. . . the iPad is good for those heavy flow days! Mine's the one with the string attached (yes, strings are on tampons, I know).
Some of us who work in the real world have to do things like send backup data offsite (it's a good idea even if it's not a requirement, but I guess you wouldn't know that). Tape is actually quite fast for backup (less so for recovery), especially with compression, and it retains the data for longer than an unpowered hard drive.
Other than those objections, your point is valid.
Football, non-violent? In EUROPE?! The players, sure, but what about the fans?
In any case, nothing will stop a true commentard from spewing ignorant bile into the Intertubes. Nothing.
I'll just lurk around in anticipation of the spew of bilious hatred from the Opera user community.
Hardly a surprising opinion . . .
. . . coming from someone who can't be bothered to use capitalization, punctuation, spelling, or grammar.
Not that I agree with the AC, mind you, I just think your opinion is a bit rich coming from, you know, *you*.
Sucks to be you
Perhaps you could try looking up his references somewhere, perhaps on some sort of electronic network . . .
I await the many comments blaming "Micro$oft" for this shocking revelation.
The local subway system is plastered with Flip ads which give the impression that the Flip is targeted at the young, vain, and stupid. So, um, I can only guess that it will be massively successful. If only Cisco had colored it white and called it the iFlip, they would have had an absolute slam dunk.
People sometimes use phrases which are not strictly semantically correct and yet remain common parlance. Ric Romero has more at 11.
Close, but . . . no, not even close
With the right approach, DR is much simpler with a VM than with a physical machine. As long as you have an appropriate host (ESX or whatever) available, you recover the VM image and go, rather than having to work with some vendor's notion of "bare-metal recovery" (possibly onto incompatible hardware) or having to reinstall the OS and then run the recovery and hope that it works. Furthermore, products like VMware's Site Recovery Manager and Platespin Protect facilitate automating the backup/recovery process, allowing a push-button recovery of your whole environment.
Other than that, you're spot on.
By which I mean it's shocking, just shocking, that an old codger finds the youth of today to be vastly inferior to the youth of, er, yesterday. Enjoy your memories of your two-way hike uphill in the snow.
These delays are most likely due to i/o latency, specifically network or hard disk, so throwing more CPU at the problem will not help. Windows having a more streamlined (or multi-threaded) i/o model would help. Or you could just run SSDs.
