Why the hell are you using that piece of creepy spyware??? A bit of convenience? loads a bit faster does it?
A few years ago there was this concept called "spyware". Google chrome fits that description perfectly, but OK maybe it does'nt matter when its big benevolent mother google ?
hitachi versus seagate
I have a bunch of KVM virtualization servers on pc hardware running 4 mirrors each, comprised of one hitachi drive and one seagate drive. I havent got the details on them at hand (cant be bothered to fire up the VPN, log on, tjek the drives...... to much like work on a friday night :-) ) they are a couple of years old (1 TB drives). My observation:
Seagate drives are failing like crazy, hitachis just keep on running! Sad about that really, hopefully WD puts their acquisition to good use!
Maybe not to late
Maybe its still not too late for "The Microsoft Internet" we all know was old Bills wet dream

Re: Windows security fail
Runnning KVM on LVM on debian for virtualisation and debian on the desktop, no worries, licensing bullshit, crippleware gauntlets, forced "upgrades" end general creepiness of one of the platforms of the great information parasites of the world (you know who they are :-))
dum and dummer for dummies
"So you think you got the grips on dum? Nobody dums it down lower than us, our target group are the 10 year old retards! Just click (or spit or rub your genitals) on the pretty pictures and the incredible bing machine will take you to your dreams!"
And the worlds most swollen parasite, they are.. mmrrhh..
Programming for the web browser
"the browser is the operating system."
This is the stupidest idea i haver ever seen. All the "cloud providers" keep pushing it because they want to own your data. Nevertheless it has been a pipedream from day one.
it boils down to: "we want the same amount og functionality in the browser, as in native applications. and we expect a lot less complexity" !?!?! WTF?
Luckily i spend my time in a somewhat predictable environment (sysadm, a bit of serverside java and bash+perl)
Dont trust your communication to privately owned protocols
This kind of crap will never happen to SMTP, IRC, HTTP (although they keep trying), IMAP and so on!
N F W
The day i will be"signing in" to any of the giant data-parasites (i. e. google et. al) to use my computer, will be the day there will be two cold sundays on a week in hell!
The great RockNroll swindle
If the cloud is so fantastic, its amazing that we can host all our services on either KVM virtualized servers, or physical servers (for the response time critical services), all on off the shelf hardware.
Can meet any provisioning demand within 1-3 days, all for about 1/3 - ½ of the cost off any "cloud" provider. And thats just the running costs.
Do not tell me that if we suddenly bought into the vendor-pushed cloud hype, our support and provisioning costs (in manpower) would suddenly be zero.
Re: The author was just wrong
So.. the only arguments for this machine being a "real" workstation compared ti the MAC (or any homebrew) is the certification, officiel support, NBD blabla - thievery? All of it just i big scam, and completely pointless if you know how to swap a stick of RAM, PSU etc....
Descent screen anybody ?..... helloooooo..
I dont give a flying fuck if its dual, quad or hexa core, has 4 6 or 8 GB's of RAM, or if its a 120, 160 or 240 GB SSD.
PUT THE FUCKING EFFORT INTO MAKING A DECENT SCREEN.
A laptop with anything less than 1920x1080 (preferrebly 1920x1280) SUCKS!
Why the hell should I buy one of these things for a truckload of money, if the ergonomics are more or less the same as my 5 year old laptop, and the only difference is that it opens my officesuite ~11% quicker?
Hit the fan
the shit will....
When the fact that "bing" is utterly idiotic, and the laughing stock of the Internet reaches upper managment at Microsoft in another couple of years :-)
There isno such thing as an "UltraBook"
It is just the wet dream of a bunch of marketing assholes!
An "Ultrabook" is just what i laptop computer SHOULD be like in 2012:
decent screen, great performance and lightweight. Nothing more

He only qualifies if the hardware in question is:
I know Ubuntu is hot shit, but +10 years at the helm of a large number of servers has firmly confirmed that vanilla debian is the way to go if you want stable funcitionality.
Users do not want "hot shit" for their basic computing needs. They want things to be reliable and constant.
Strangely, nobody seems to grasp this?
Only companys run by lawyers would dream of buying this kind of snakeoil.
everyday i am gratefull that i live in a country (DK), and work at a company where i am allowed to think for my self.
Hooray for the lowest fucking denominator
Think globally, act locally
or we will all soon be living in oat-meal-hell (as all god "consumers" should be)
FUCK transparency (and rounded corners)
