NO ONE is making money from YouTube, even Google – report

CAPS LOCK

Googles accountants say they are not making money. Where have we heard this sort of thing before?

BBC: SOD the scientific consensus! Look OUT! MEGA TSUNAMI is coming

CAPS LOCK

It's about time the BBC was stopped from putting out scarmongering nonsense like this.

Ans clearly they aren't capable of doing it for themselves.

This is a very poor article.

Vague to the point of being misleading and really without substance. Why El Reg.? I think we should be told.

FIVE Things (NOT 10: these are REAL) from the WINDOWS 10 event

CAPS LOCK

OS upgrades?

Observation leads me to believe there isn't much OS upgrading going on in the Windows world. Usually it's "I need a new computer, this one is old." or "Away with you Great Satan, have some Linux love my faithful box."

Microsoft forks .NET and WHOMP! Here comes .NET Core app dev stack

I know from experience it'll be slow and buggy.

High Court: You've made our SH*T list – corked pirate torrent sites double in a day

CAPS LOCK

No one cares...

... The people who don't use them don't are. The people who do use them know the work-arounds and alternatives. More money wasted by all concerned. Good news for lawyers and BMW dealers though.

We have a winner! Fresh Linux Mint 17.1 – hands down the best

CAPS LOCK

Re: Mint makes Linux On The Desktop a no-brainer...

Minor clarification - XFCE DE not Cinnamon or Mate. Ideal on oldish, XP vintage, hardware.

Mint makes Linux On The Desktop a no-brainer...

We, here at work, switched to Mint at the end of XP with LESS ISSUES than those who have moved to Win8/8.1. Windows advocates will say "Oh it's (Mint) more work, you'll be typing thing on the command line all the time. You won't save any money because of the time it (Mint) will consume.". Tosh - Mint uses less support than XP, you actually SAVE time using it.

Bada-Bing! Mozilla flips Firefox to YAHOO! for search

CAPS LOCK

So Microsoft then...

"In July 2009, Yahoo signed a deal with Microsoft, the result of which was that Yahoo Search would be powered by Bing. This is now in effect." Quoted from Wickipedia.

Get NAS-ty: Reg puts claws to eight four-bay data dumpsters

CAPS LOCK

Or alternatively...

Get a generic server and use Nas4free. Advantages? Cost; freedom from proprietary formats and parts; great user community. Disadvantages? Well only 'some assembly required' but about the same amount as the unpopulated units.

Microsoft: Yeah, about that 50% post-Christmas customer price hike...

"Home-Premium"

Is this version available to businesses? How does the support compare with the support from the other vendor. In other words "Is this a like-for-like comparison?"

CAPS LOCK

Gah - It's a good deal more complex than 'Look on the website' in my experience. That's why I asked if anyone actually knew.

"Linux costs more to run for almost all uses except web servers.". How does that work? More electricity? More servers? More admins? More hamsters? Extraordinary claims require details. Bald statements are the stuff of astroturfers.

"Only if your time has no value."

My actual experience... less time is used looking after Linux than looking after Windows, so the time-has-a-value thing works IN FAVOUR of Linux.

"- the supported versions like Redhat and SUSE are more expensive to license!"

Are they? Does anyone here actually know the facts (comparing like-for-like) here?

What's all the fuss about 'Fuck you Microsoft' etc?

It's not as if there aren't alternatives, some are even free. Linux On The Desktop was two years ago in my business. Linux Mint 17 ftw. I've also got FreeBSD spinning away in the server room. Also free. Get with the program Granddad.

Mate is an ADVANTAGE of Linux Mint but not the reason to move...

.. The reason to move is that Canonical has lost the plot, whereas Mint gets it.

Munich considers dumping Linux for ... GULP ... Windows!

CAPS LOCK

The real problem is they've forgotten what it was like under the thumb of MS.

I'm SHOCKED that it has taken MS so long, to bring Munich back. It would never have taken that long under Bill. He'd have spent the money required straight away.
