El Reg's long-diminishing reputation as a worthwhile IT news portal is finally laid to rest.
If Facebook is so clever with the deep learn why they have to throw such special extra hardware at it? I think they have lots of idiots but lots of money.
So once again we are seeing the linux fail with the security holes.
When will they learn that it is free and you are getting what you are paying for?
"A client sends a job to their agency, who take a cut and send it to their contractors, who take a cut, who send it to their subcontractors who take a cut and who then, send it to me (and take a cut). The rest of the money is money. Minus what the cut taken by the taxman, of course.
Why, therefore should the sub-sub-sub contracting stop with me?"
I like it. The entire IT world could collapse one day when we realise that everybody has subcontracted everyone else's subcontracts and there is nobody actually doing the work.
Then the taxpayer would bail us out
Why do I need Flash to see the chart?
Bollocks to that
This will be the news from one ago then?
If they use the proper language like Java or C# they would not now be in these woes and spend all these monies on converter to legacy C++ which is only the same step back too but just a bit faster.
Surely he better to spend his time to make the desktops one run at good speed and not to crash all the time before he bloat out the memory on my phone too.
Good to see the education system still teaching the classics - Shakespeare, Orwell, Tolstoy, Wachowski...
Thank God they're not dumbing down.
You won't help but always mock Windows for these viruses but why you don't look at the cause?
Windows has most viruses because it is most used. If Linux had most users it would have more of the virus. This is my simple logic.
And why I laugh most is that Linux is free and Windows you pay for yet Windows is still by far our most popular. So it seems Linux is so bad they cannot even give it away!!!!!
The linux will always take this much as not so efficient at programs
Had the three of them spent a fortune on Steve Jobs' latest clothing range?
Article misleads us as if customer must have Linux to do pictures.
We can use the free software on Windows without our needs of Linux.
On most Windows we will already have installed the folder called "Accessories". If not then it can be got on the CD as custom option to tick checkbox on in installers.
Once we have Accessories we can use applicaiton called "mspaint.exe" which can be found on the hard disks and also on the Start Menu in Accessories (All Programs). Here we then have the free software for editing our files.
If we have no need for edit then many won't realise simple way of dragging picture to Internet Explorer 8 (which also has come free of charges) in order to examine it closely.
My camera comes with installer for Windows to let it transfer the images and use option tool for the viewing but I don't need it as I have the aboves.
Best way we stop Firefox giving bank details to russian on internet is use the Internet Explorer instead - it come free and work safe and fast.
Where you get this mad idea?
Faster? It take much longer to load.
Safer? Where you get that crazy from? Much less safe - just because they say "safe" you fall for it ha ha!
For this we read: you use Firfox for your pornographics but keep it not default so wife never see history when she click to browse?
Opps - then I forget to even comment on how you do "different tasks" "simultaneously". I think left hand knows what right hands does ha ha!
As if we not have enough problems with Java in the Firfox!
Bob laugh how so many fanfox vote him down but not make resonable arguement as why they do it.
Here we see why I so often am telling not to use the Firfox. With IE I know I will see this mend as soon as we know of the hole and here we see it as I predict.
With Firfox we would be always reading about further delays to the latest version and he leave us open to the abuses for various extra months.
Why he still scrape around looking for small performance boosting when we see clearly that browsers building with Jav will never give me the performance I need. Why they not use compiling language to write browser if they seek most gain? I use IE8 as it is giving me the speed and the security that I desire and he comes free with the Windows and looked after by the Windows update so we have no problems.
Guinness cost at least £3.30 in pubs already and have for last year or twos.
Why he want Jav database anyway? C one will be always faster and with JBDC we can still use it from Javs if we need.
Good luck with the job centre plus people - but I am fearing they use the Microsoft too so you may not be able to sign on.
Firfox always has these bug every week we see new ones. Why do people use when they can have the free Internet Explorer which comes in the Windows box and is workng for us better?
In our company we must have IE because we need the security that comes with not having the open source. Open sources are good for the student hackers who plays with his simple codes in his bedrooms but for our proper businesses it must never be the option.
Also Firefox suffers us with the obviously problems of a Jav platform, while Safari and Opera have the niche codes without the support we need, and Chrome has the spam adverts built in, so IE is our best choice.
Why there is a problem if Microsoft takes the codes and makes it better? If the man gives his codes away and they are not already good enough then he seems only natural that Microsoft would do this to make it better for us all.
Why Firefox not just fix the bug instead of just tell the users about them?
With the IE we see that they can fix them quick with the update on the next day and user is not filled with worries. Why can the Firefox not be the same?
I will guess that it is the open source cause of problem - if the coding man might be on holiday or busy with his exams then they must just put out the notice for a while to warn me not to use the Firefox until they fix it? This is why I must pay for my software for the safety and to be nicely relieved of my tensions.
I am not understanding this free software cults. Why must it only be good thing for software to be free?
What else we see in life that takes many men-months or years to make and then people say it must be free? What is wrong for programmer man to expect some monies for his fine skills and all his working time put in?
Perhaps it all just comes in from student with long and greasy hair and heavy metal t-shirt and wifi called "Use-of-W3apons", who works on the Linux free instead of studying for my tax pounds. But when he goes away and must have a job he stops making the Linux free and is happy to take some money. And so it goes on that the Linux is only come from students which we find to be the bad reason for always the rewriting of the file system and things as each has own wheel to reinvent and no experience of the proper skills we seek from operating system man.
Why I post the same comments as other people but mine have the banning? I was not rude.
"leave that to the meerkats, who are much better at you and much funnier"
I do not see why you say this. But then you hide as Anonymous so I know you have not the courage to stand by it.
You tell story about Microsoft patch which waits two years but of course you are offering no backup story to explain what you say as true evidence.
I am happy with what I know to be based on properly looking at news and the technology papers. I am using Microsoft most times but still there must be times when I can recommend the alternatives when I have made proper research to prove it is the wisest of choices.
It seems many on the forums are not do their research as well like me and just shoot their hips when they see chance to beat brow Microsoft.
Many are often claim the Linux is the best and free but this shows that it fails to be the case.
Windows has many security update but never do we find a bug left in place for 8 years! In fact Windows always will update more often with a new versions to ensure it is more secure than the last one (we see NT ant 200 and 2003 and the newer ones and XP and Vistas for our examples).
When we see the Linux men not bother to change the softwares for 8 years we must worry. This is why I choose not to have it on my computers where I am working.
Perhaps you might only run one antivirus instead of lots. Maybe you not good at protecting the computer you have so it has many spyware and porn linking on the desktop? If he try a clean build first then might be better before to criticise something that we know is not the case. Also we see that you use the Maven WAR files - this is Javs.
If we have Linux on the desktop instead of the Windows we are say good bye to the PC everywhere as a tool of common man. Imagine all the men and dog try to use command line to make latest driver work like with WinModem.
It will be death of computer for ordinary person.
You say me an "idiot" which is not very nice from you.
Why you take it granted that he is more safe because they fix the bugs quicker and more often? How about it is only necessary to fix so many times because they are many more security vulnerability in the beginning? It is not enough to just say what you say - my logic is equal and valid so I am not an idiot like you say.
Who are the people who "it is considered far more secure" like you say? I see lots on the board here who do not agree - perhaps they call you idiot too?
Anyways you are not a nice person I think.
Why people use this one? He say "most secure way to surf the web" on the front but it have a bug every new day which risks me having computer germs and filth installed. I don't use because we have IE free and it works fast.
Yes GaryF has hit the button on the head. Firfox uses all my memory when I use it by accident - that is why I must use the IE for my efficiency. It seem obvious to me that they are silly to use Jav for a browser - it always slow and leaks the memory as we have no way to destruct the objects.
This gets to be beyond the funny joke.
Microsoft must launch program to help user stop Firefox before it starts as part of security suite, or uninformed user will accidentally use it and have their bank stolen.
Why Firfox developers not prosecuted for all this?
Always this same talk of Firfox against the Internet Explorer. Why must people try to always put the Microsoft one down when we know it comes for free and works best on the web sites? Also as I say before the Firfox Javs will always be its large downfall as it is most slow and also uses all my memory up in one go.
For me and my friends it is a no brain to choose IE8 as the best one.
P.S. also to please take some salt on the statistic that they say about users of the browser - due to some details in confusion with something we call the "users agent" most people are not sure which browser the customer chooses - many IE browsers flavour appear as though they are the Firfox through IE sending Mozilla to be sure that site will still serve it. This dates back to time when Sun tries to hoodwink the web from Microsoft with Java applets.
It is dead man walking with all the security flaw it has and slowness of Jav performance instead of Visual C++ of IE8 choice. I worry that many are led to this by spamware in the emails and do not choose to use in logical fashion. Why can Microsoft not add to Windows an update that will step in to recommend the problems with Firfox and then to direct to IE8 download site? Then people can be protected from all this every month.
Why all the fuss is made?
Who want to turn Windows 7 into XP anyway if they are letting you try Vista instead? Vista goes much faster than the Linux and it has the extra security pop-ups so this would be your best choice.
I cannot see what there is you complain about here. Microsoft are provide us with the system on which the Firefox Javs can run so it is up to them if they wish to correct them to run better. I think we should be thanking the Microsoft people who provide us with the extra .Net functions in the Firefox free of charge. They do not have to help the Firefox people but they do because they want the Windows to always keep being the best it can be.
"Those of you with iPhone envy just get a life. Whether you like it or not iPhone will come to dominate the mobile space for the next 10 years. Keep whining while I sit back and enjoy your fury! lol"
This is funny one. I think you live in the funny world with the drugs and everything but we can all laugh when you join us on the forums.
iPhone smells bad and looks out of date with the white on everything. It is the style which dates so quickly and they make you buy new ones to remain in the trends.
I laugh at all who have one of them and will laugh easier at them when they are lit up using the new battery more wastefully.
It is what Apples have always done though - they only sell them to trendy people who think Microsoft is not good because it make a success of it's job.
I am much rather having the machine which does the jobs properly - both for my computer and for my portable music. I save money without the iPhone and keep it in my pocket anyway so what is the difference? Except when I get it out to wave at the iPhone fool who has his white poor-quality earphones in my face on the trains.
I decide on what to buy and I must always choose Intel as it runs better with the Microsoft systems and does not need the Linux like AMD does and is faster too. This means we can still use our best applications at work.
We cannot be surprised to learn that Sun is having no money left to make it's computers. Many years ago now they launched the Javs which we use to make the popular applets.
They make two big mistakes when they make this.
First they do not charge any monies for the Javs. This means people have them free and must not pay for them. With Microsoft they did the C Sharp instead and for this we must pay with the Visual Studio. This way they keep it on an even keel and make the monies they need. With Sun they spend monies on the Javs and get none back. This is why Javs are now more broken because of decay from cheap maintenance over those few years.
Second mistake they make is the very promise of the Jav which is that it must work on each machine not just the Sun one. This mean that we just take their Jav and put it on the Windows where it runs best and not have to buy the big Sun box which take up more space.
Sun makes these mistakes in the early years but even then some of us would see the folly. Since then they do not change and they run out of the VC monies and must seek more.
IBM should write own new language and not buy the Javs. It will be better to have this as we can then have new features and not have the Entity Bean which slows me down.
"Given the amount of work involved in any desktop OS switch in terms requirements analysis, application selection, compatibility testing, integration with systems management processes, etc., you want to make sure that the horse you back represents a safe long-term bet."
Please to simply install Windows then no analysis or testing needed and we can all be sure to have backed the winning post horse.
Why to make work for himself with the Linux where my software will fail me?
