What's a TNT?
Sorry, I can't search the comments to see if anyone has answered that question as Ctrl+f has been disrupted by my iPad.
You'll be able to turn it off with group policy in the enterprise space. (obviously).
Windows 8.1 was the release in between so it's par for the course.
Windows 8.1 is the best OS Microsoft have ever made despite what the troglodytes say.
Seriously, who actually uses a start menu when since Xp sp2 it's been easier to hit the windows key and type the first few letters of the app then enter. This hasn't changed in any subsequent OS and it makes me squirm to watch supposed IT people laboriously pour over the menu searching for an icon.
I read that as gestapo. Almost Freudian.
1) Powershell already uses forward slashes.
2) Drives can be referenced without drive letters although I give you that they aren't very readable.
3) You've been able to mount drives as folders anywhere in the directory tree for years.
4) Windows installed in Bootcamp reads HFS+ just fine so drivers are already out there.
5) xming gives you x for windows although I grant you it's not built in.
What exactly is wrong with 8.1 and please don't tell the start menu.
What sort of IT professional has even used the start menu since one of the XP updates introduced the ability to search it.
Windows Key + first few characters of program name, enter. Boom. Exactly the same in 8.1, 8, 7, XP SP2.
I can't believe in 2015 people are still slowly navigating through a start menu. Painful.
midi certainly uses optoisolators on input.
It appears the kickstarter has been cancelled. I was going to donate too.
20 years hey?
I'm fairly sure Netscape navigator had no plug in support in 1995.
IPSec tunnels between all internal machines should stop network snooping from a hacked router but I guess any traffic sent to the gateway (router) would likely need to be in the clear.
Maybe a VPN or tor could be used for all outbound connections.
I've toyed with this sort of idea before but really configuring ipsec for every device new device does become a pain.
" it recruiting the top people when the fact's known."
Well they're hardly the top people if they are a liability are they?
Any reason you decided on a 4 generation old windows server for your example?
You could have used Windows Server 2012 R2 which also fits on a DVD but isn't 7 years old.
Not hard at all with a serial port.
Looks very OS X like to me.
Why no Windows Server 2008 r2 or 2012 R2?
They do realise that 2008 and 2008R2 are completely different OS's. One based on Vista and the other on Windows 7.
I hope they're not bundling them both in together as 2008.
Are we going back more than 15 years here?
All correct apart from the fact that the default config on windows 2012 r2 has file sharing disabled by default and the firewall enabled. Hell it doesn't even come with a GUI by default.
My conclusion is that your post is FUD or you're years behind on your Windows knowledge.
Did you contact the ICO?
Let all forget that Windows 95 still had BASIC installed for command line programming and that you could compile assembler into 16 bit COM files from Debug.
No it had no program ability at all apparently.
What's your logic behind that?
People will choose to use an insecure and unsupported OS because it's being virtualized? What?
Or you could have just done a little bit of training within your department to remove your ignorance and configured W8.1 with ClassicShell and some sensible group policies so your users didn't notice any difference like mine haven't.
Carry on blaming everyone else though.
Snow leopard from 2009 is dropped already. What are you talking about.
You suspect wrong. I don't what it was doing but "it's not downloading patches before you use it."
Why can't technical people even do a bit of due diligence before making stupid claims based on no knowledge.
That's conclusive Ken.
At my workplace I had been worried about introducing windows 8.1 for some of our older users.
The main comment I actually got was how nice the new keyboards were on our new desktop machines. No mention of Windows 8.1 whatsoever.
Why aren't you still using a tiling desktop like Win 3.1 then?
You should be able to fit at least a couple of hundred animated undercontruction gifs in 20MB. Bundles of space.
Linux is a kernel.
Do you mean GNU userland?
I stopped read and had to post something at "Given Linux's long history of outstanding support for underpowered hardware."
I can only assume the writer hasn't actually used a full distribution of Linux on underpowered hardware in the last 5 years as this is really not the case unless you're suggesting the future is still something like LXDE in which case you're wrong.
The pin should be salted and hashed so that it can't be reversed even by the bank.
If you're so confident about that and your prowess why don't you post under your own handle instead of Anonymous coward?
DOS was modeled on CP/M not Unix.
I have no idea where you got that sort of notion from. What part of DOS shares any Unix philosophy?
How did management calculate that electricity cost them more than the lost man hours and additional wear and tear to the servers?
I think you missus has another issue with her ipad air. ios run seamlessly on the ipad air.
Yes, with multiple tabs open in chrome/safari it's a frequent occurrence for the page to have to reload when returning to the tab.
Very annoying if for instance you're filling in a form on one tab and checking data for the form in another only to come back and find the page refreshed and the form blank.
In any serious "sporting" event that would clearly lead to disqualification so that's a load of hogwash.
I've not used an ISP's DNS server for some time so I didn't even notice tbh.
"been tugged away"
We're quoting from someone who's illiterate.
Surely they meant "tucked."
>but I seem to remember May 8th was Victory in Europe day. Perhaps you might want to understand >exactly who was responsible for the lions share of that victory.
We're well aware of who won victory in Europe. It was the Russians. What is your point?
It's a PC. It will run Windows.
Crosses Turkey off the holiday list.
No one I know has used cheques for years. Does anyone even get a cheque book with their account anymore? If you'd been talking about the USA maybe.
I think you're a little misguided with your assertions as towards the UK though.
I guess you've never used opensuse then?
I'm prompted for my wallet password way too much. It's almost become a reflex to type it in and the elevation dialog box does not give you enough information to make a valid decision.
If you wanted your implementation to be used you'd use the apache or bsd licence and not the gpl3.
God you guys are boring.
You'll get used to the new icons in no time.
I should imagine it's going to be something like BT fibre in the UK which is in-fact fibre to the green box on your road and the VHDSL from there to your house.
Not exactly the same as the standard DSL we're used to but still a bit of a cheek to call it a fibre connection.
There are plenty of simple to install storage OS's that aren't windows server.
If you're backing up 50GB a day for 10 users you are doing it wrong. Ever heard of incremental backups?
A "normal" company of 10 people is not producing 50GB of new content in a day.
I have 1200 users and they aren't producing that. My total backup pool is just over 12TB and that includes system states of all my servers and not just user data, etc.
question being, what sort of bank would use a chinese made mini computer given all we've heard about hardware backdoors?
