They could always buy Cyrix's & Centaur's licences off VIA
I'm no fan of the Windows Store but it's no more restrictive than most Linux distro's repositories
Are you suggesting that Slackware ISN'T a major Distro? /joke
Doubt it. Sao Paulo (ex Foch) is getting a bit leaky, so they do need something vaguely aircraft carrierish
HMS Gay Viking?
This video might be of interest https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2F-DItXtZs.
8 cores = 800% maybe? In which case using 50% or 100% isn't that big a deal.
But seeing as windows doesn't measure CPU usage that way (at least in task manager) probably exaggeration.
Opera these days is a better Chrome, that is true. What it isn't is a modern version of Opera. The closest thing to that is Vivaldi with the bonus of being a better Chrome than modern Opera.
I find the Windows User icon more apt for Windows OS Devs these days
I wonder if Attila the Hun was a Corporate Raider? Obviously not just a Vulture Capitalist,m as the Roman Empire was an established operation
I wasn't aware the Nazi's invaded Poland to ensure vendor lock in
But a lot of Bitcoin fanatics (accidentally typed bitcon) seem to think it's not a fiat currency, for some bizzarre reasons. IMO they are reminiscent of the arguments that sovereign citizens, flat earthers & Tesla fanboys make.
A guy in his 60's who feels the need to post selfies of his 6 pack is not smart
In the words of Bill Watterson, "Verbing nouns wierds language".
Well, you could ask Bell at his shiny new PR agency in London, or Pottinger in the chunk of Bell Pottinger he carved off, now based in Singapore. Both the rats left the ship when they saw the chickens were coming home to roost.
The moment they started taking money to promote posts they became publishers.
Lotta butt hurt Apple fanbois in the comments here.
I am waiting with trepidation for a friends laptop at the moment. An acquaintance of his installed Mint Linux on it a year ago and then disappeared. I suspect it hasn't received a single update since then.
Some here may consider him an idiot, but he can do stuff with with carpentry that amazes me and he's a fully qualified electrician. He just doesn't have time to baby sit a computer.
Well you might notice a difference if you are using an ATI Mach 32, as it would have to do extra dithering. Mind you, that was probably offloaded to the CPU, I can't remember.
Isn't it still up on eBay?
Wouldn't surprise me if he's trying to build a case for an insanity defense in his appeal. Actually, is there an insanity defence in securities fraud?
It popped up again because one of their spokesmen made some disturbingly similar comments about autism.
So instead of the NSA rifling through your files you have the FSB. I'm not sure if that is an improvement
True, MS's advertising platform is pants compared to Google.
My first IBM compatible PC had a 80 Mb HDD and an AMD 386 DX40 CPU. The dealer threw in Windows 3.1 for free with MS-DOS 5
Also known as "Windows for Warehouses"
It's far closer to a modernised Opera than the browser called Opera these days, though.
Well the title says it all. It's Argentinian, I doubt they'll sell or licence their tech to us.
OBS is streaming software not a video editor
KdenLive is probably an OK alternative to Windows Movie Maker
As far as I'm aware the only NLE for Linux is Cinelerra, and that's a bitch to set up and get running, crashes constantly and has an even more obtuse interface than GIMP used to. I don't think is still being developed either.
At least it was Debian not that flavour of the month distro, whatever it's called.
Don't forget the seven year old girl sleeping on a couch
These Trump articles really bring the racists out the woodwork. I'm sure they'd feel more comfortable over at Reddit.
You mean go full on old Southern lady on them? Bless their little hearts.
I'm afraid you are talking out your arse. The QE2 & PoW won't have catapults and the capability to be retrofitted with them was removed by penny pinchers in Thales & the MOD. It was the new EMALS system that was putting unexpected stress on the aircraft's fuselage (not just F35's) in testing. As far as I'm aware that problem has been fixed.
Moller has been fleecing the credulous for over 50 years now
Lucas weren't called the Princes of Darkness for nothing you know.
Of the top of my head stuff that gets grandfathered into an upgrade.
Windows Media Player
Windows Movie Maker & the other programs in the Windows Live bundle
Windows Media Centre
SkiFree32 (I may have installed that myself)
Most of this stuff has also been removed from public view on the MS website
And it as far as I can tell it leaves the Windows XP VM that XP Mode uses but uninstalls Windows Virtual PC
Oracle certainly have the offensive bit right down, but I think they need to work on the charm bit of charm offensive.
But seriously of all the software over the years that has used OpenSSL, has anyone ever actually done that? No, just a section in the documentation and a page on the website.
I don't see why people have this thing about advertising clauses. Is it REALLY that onerous to have a section in your documentation & a link from your about box listing all the software you used & their licensing?
397680 minutes remaining. Just checked the sceenshot I did (about 276 days). About 15 years ago, at home, copying something to an extremely slow external HDD over USB (HDD supported Firewire but computer didn't).
Great minds think alike!
It will probably just connect automatically to next door's BT wifi hotspot
At least in the UK, Netflix has a remarkably crap selection of movies and an awful UI. It reminds me of visiting a crappy video rental place in the 80's, they probably have a couple of good movies, but you get cheesed of by the mountain of crap & the clerk's attitude long before you find them.
Isn't Slurp another term for The Chocolate Factory, not Microsoft?
Was that a "Do Scanners Live in Vain" reference?
Considering how infatuated this government is with American so-called "tech" companies, that wouldn't surprise me.
You really have to wonder what sort of numpty mistakes a gap below the drive for the slot with the recess in the middle and a large lever over it? not to mention the flashing light above it?
