An interesting idea but...

... not practical. 3/10 must try harder.
My spider senses are tingling....
Drink, it's the curse of the Fourth Estate.
... they always end well.
Googles accountants say they are not making money. Where have we heard this sort of thing before?
A lot less than Nora.
Ans clearly they aren't capable of doing it for themselves.
Very successful. There are A LOT of people with reason to be grateful. I personally use both pfSense and Nas4Free.
Vague to the point of being misleading and really without substance. Why El Reg.? I think we should be told.
... it's terrible.
... ooops what a giveaway.
What a waste of talent. Save your time and money, stay away.
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."
Blimey, even more incompetent than I already thought.
ITS A TRAP
... well not heaven anyway. This can only end well.
Having an extra second in bed. Bliss.

What, you haven't seen the BBC version. For shame. Youtube is your friend.
A3 or A4?
Microsoft financed a lot of this misery, to spread FUD. Never forget how low Microsoft will go to undermine its competitors.
It's their business model.
I wouldn't want to be associated with Audi drivers. I'm sure there are some good ones, but...
... giant cats.
... the writing on the wall. This bodes well for there long term welfare.
I know from experience it'll be slow and buggy.
Quality work you MS astrofarmers.
... less of this sort of thing.
... 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.
What's good for Bill is good for... Bill.
Minor clarification - XFCE DE not Cinnamon or Mate. Ideal on oldish, XP vintage, hardware.
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.
Not on my computer. And probably not on yours as well.
... so barely rewritten PR pieces. Why The Register has to publish this stuff is beyond me. No-one here is fooled by this stuff, for Dog's sake stop treating us like imbeciles!
"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.
It's good, but it's no Fat Freddy's Cat compendium. Check out 'Chariot of the Globs', a masterpiece.
Use something else. Say goodbye to this nonsense forever.
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.
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?"
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?
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.
... "Get 4k'd"
... Some people didn't get hacked by a 'hacker ring' that might have been one bloke, who didn't do anything. Hold the front page!
... that died the death - I'm guessing this will too. Anyone remember the Dyson washing machine?
I'm not popping round to our neighbours in Persues-Pisces any time soon.
