Don't forget FreeBSD, personally like it better than Linux
Java is the antithesis of portability since it runs on only ONE architecture, namely the Java Virtual Machine.
At a point this machine have to be 1/ ported to the target hardware 2/ installed by the user => without those two steps Java is the less portable langage.
... that thse spots REALLY look like a Nazi secret base?
Samrtphone do have RAM and mass storage.
SDcards or µSDcards are mass storage, not RAM.
Different concepts, different uses, different speeds. An SDcard is closer to a diskette than to RAM.
The only thing that comes close to RAM is RAM disks.
I doubt your phone have 16 GB of RAM, as your post title suggest.
Probably you mean permanent storage.
Obvious icon, but still...
I must say I'm pretty happy with my Lumia myself.
The Metro UI is really good for this format and general usability is awesome.
Alas as often with MS, the last major update introduced some bugs, like the sms app hanging (no longer typing), and occasional OS crashes.
I must agree on your last sentence Android really sucks big juicy donkey c**ks.

Sir, you rationalize too much on votes.
It's El Reg, not the parliament.
Have a down vote from me too.
Are you saying Apple got it right?
ATM have USB ports open to everyone?
Like if opensource projects are immune... Linux zeitgeist anyone?
>>But Sc00bz and others have dismissed that boast, saying it would be easy for Mega to provide an >>"unbreakable" account with a long, random password, but it wouldn't prove that real-world Mega >>accounts can't be hacked or spied on.
And it would be easy for Microsoft & friends to start bogus claims on MegaChat security without providing evidences, let alone proofs.
Isn't it strange that "security researchers" main argument is "yeah we could not have break it because they would have cheat", in other words "trust only the one we can OFFICIALLY break"
... Microsoft and some other big players are majors contributors to Linux, for a variety of reasons.
Part of the plan is make you believe you still have a choice.
Some others tried that with some success in the past centuries, like "I'm son of God".
You're a nutjob.

Why insert a human body in the armour in the first place (70 - 100kg) ?
Make it a remote controlled droid on 6 wheels, an armored casing for storing motor/fuel/ammo, one or two guns on a turret, and a few cameras.
Lower price. Available tech.
Looks like someone holds something wrong
An alien is probably holding it wrong
EU and ESA may not go to the moon, but they fly to Mars orbit and will attempt a comet landing in a few months...
Hadn't he blackmailed, he would have ejoyed his "privilege" longer and the being caught the sentence would have been a lot lighter...
Or the robber would have shot the guy before saying a word, just to make sure he would not be shot at in the first place.
The first Apple computers had no design at all, it was a wood casing. Square. Filled with components.
At first Apple sold the computers as a kit, the buyer would assemble the computer.
So... No, Steve wasn't even a designer.
He was a marketing guy, a liar. A good one maybe, even for a canary, but a liar.

Funnily enough my Atari ST in 1987 had the same design choices...
Yes it ran a nice user interface when Pc's were stuck with text only OS.
But it was a closed ecosystem, not upgradable (well not entirely)
As a result Atari went out of market because people prefered to spend the money on something that could adapt to future uses..
Same reasoning as in "she wore a mini skirt and got raped... her fault.."
About the raper fault?
What about the US?
You nailed it.
Cut off a finger?
Nah, nowadays we just 3D print it.
... I own a Lumia and I like it a lot.
I own a Nokia Win8 Phone since yesterday.
I like it.
... The girl looks quite okay ...for an american that is...
Now that's a busy "Neuron".
Can I be the first to say...
"Don't disturb unless it is Mr Shadow"
"It is Mr Shadow"
Education icon, just because.
"Apple is expensive"
Maybe that wasn't made clear enough.
"But I like it anyway".
That part is usually forgotten.
This is craft, not art.
Or all crafts are art.
Brilliant!! Aikido moves are a lot about arm twisting.
Microsoft is making different Windows for years, it was about time to move to Doors.
Patenting obvious is Apple's business, find something else.
Start spying on the US with spying on French?
Why not going straight to the point and spy on Washington?
So... European countries are NOT spying on US activities?
That seems unlikely to me.
On Atari machines, the OS don't stay in memory when an application is launched.
That's why "quitting" an app on an Atari means reboot, not going back to the desktop. It have to be reloaded entirely.
So if something bad happen - because of a program, like a virus or else - the OS is not at fault.
But hey, it's El Reg, you're not supposed to actually know what you post about.
I once run a perfectly secure OS.... on an Atari... It was in ROM.
Just as nobody keeps fond memories of a 486 running Win95.
It's not only a matter of time. These old machines were fascinating, because we were struggling with the limited but fully available hardware. It was magic. It was programming. It was a lot of fun.
I still remember my first program written at school on a Thomson MO5 (standard school equipment in France, 1988 or so...) I was like 7. It was drawing a scrolling night sky.
I fondly remember the Wednesday afternoons on Amiga 500 at friend place.
I fondly remember my Atari 1040 at home and the arguments about which platform was the best =D.
Then I had a PC... pretty boring in comparison... then a Mac.... Then PC's again... I don't miss any of them.
Makes me miss my beloved Atari 1040 STf, 1Mo RAM, 8Mhz...
I run an emulator these days, but i does not feel the same... G'd old times... these computers had SOULS.
Does failing to fail make it a success?
Could this one satisfy you, m'lord?
Unfortunately for you even an amateur telescope can see the space station :
Have a nice week end (which by the way might well be faked too - It really is Monday!)

That's already the case if you're in a gang.
On an unrelated news, USA is experiencing a new kind of terror attack after a foreign intelligence service triggered the "phone kill switch" for the whole country.
